    food was good, wouldn't say great but the service was excellent, asked for well done steak, it was burnt, they forgot wedges but brought them out when asked.

    Quality of the food was excellent although far too much dressing on the garden salad. The service was prompt and friendly. Good value for money.

    The crew went above and beyond for our lunch and were all very happy and laughing with us as they served us. Great to see happy staff serving customers.

    The meals were very nice except I had a topper of garlic prawns and I didn't get any garlic or sauce. But my steak was cooked to perfection. Room for improvement .

    A great dining experience. Ordering from the table on our mobile phones was fast and user friendly, the options were great to cater to everybody in our group. The food was fast and tasty, table service was friendly and drinks were delivered promptly. The half price happy hour was an incredible deal, we will be back for sure.

    Had the Christmas package.... not worth $100head. Everything was cold even the chips. The oysters were the size of a 5c piece and the prawns come from Thailand. Even the kids were disappointed with the food. Desserts were yummy.

    This is our local so we frequent it a lot. For us it’s a great place to have a drink or a meal. I think there has been a big improvement in recent times to make it more enjoyable for the locals who the sands rely upon more than any others to put money into the till.

    Food was fantastic and well priced kids meals were good and only $5. Entrees were all big and tasty. Parma’s were big and quality fat snitzels and the steak was to die for melt in the mouth cut with a butter knife really good experience. Staff were very friendly and helpful on what to order which was great.

    Even though we requested a quiet table because of hearing difficulties we were placed next to a family with a noisy child who was then given an iphone super noisy game to play to keep them quiet. We had to ask to turn it down as we couldnt converse at our table, and theres nothing worse than electronic game noise to upset hearing aids. The staff were fabulous and the meal great, so will return. This was our first visit to you.

    The staff and service were good. The dinner was just ok and a bit over priced. A friend had the lamb chops which came with five chops but unfortunately all were tough and almost uneatable, she gave up on the third chop. With so many restaurants on the Sunshine Coast it is unlikely we will be back.
