My husband and two boys enjoyed a delicious meal overlooking the water. The staff were friendly and hospitable and made us feel at home. We would have eaten here most nights had we realised what a gem it was. I cannot recommend the restaurant highly enough it's truly outstanding and a wonderful place to eat with your family, the children... More

We had a faultless meal at Noosa Boathouse last night. We had the feast which was a 4 course shared meal for $59 per head. Wonderful value and we could barely walk when we left. Maybe should have said no to dessert. :). Fiona our waitress was absolutely lovely and her service was perfect. Thank for a great night

Probably the best seafood meal I've eaten in years. The Service was really good although a tad slow to start with. Very hard to get better

First time at this restaurant and was a little confused and the sides. We had the beef cheeks and was very impressed with the cheeks. Unfortunately the asian salad that was served with it meant the cheeks got lost in spices of the salad. My preference would have been a nice bed of mash of some description. Desert was another...

We visited Noosa Boathouse during our whirlwind tour of the East Coast of Australia. The place looks a bit dated, and we enjoyed a couple of drinks (props to Stone & Wood for lovely local brews) in the sundown bar on the top floor before heading down for dinner. We demolished a lovely maloolaba prawn Thai style salad, some super... More

Our large family group were well looked after in this busy place right out there on the water. Tasty food rather than gastro, but delivered with style and a smile.

We visited this restaurant on Sunday and it was fantastic. Staff were really great. Food was excellent and wine was great too. Kids meals were excellent, good to see not all deep fried food for kids. The view was just amazing, over the water. Highly recommend if you are in the area!

Firstly-the good points-the location is delightful and the beer is good. Unfortunately the food is decidedly mediocre-we were talked into the "Feast".I have long since given up on set restaurant "specials"-and should have avoided this offering-which is this restaurants way of providing a mediocre meal at expensive prices.The food is uninteresting and uninspiring-the staff is friendly-but why don't you try...
