Visited with family very impressed with the restaurant. The steaks were great. The staff were ok BUT the organisation of staff was dreadful. We waited ages to be served different member of staff alll the time. Only saved by a great young Lady from Canada, who saved the day. Overall a great place just needs organising.

Tonight was our second time here and we just love it. Both experiences were excellent. We loved taking the citycat ferry to Regatta station and the quick 5 min walk so great location. The ambience is lovely and decor nice. Each time we had very good service and lastly, the food has been consistently wonderful. We came with our 4... More

You can't fault the quality of the beef or cooking style here. Lovely clean, stylish restaurant. Extensive choice of cuts of beef- and great other choices other than beef to suit as well. Looked a little formal from the outside with wine swilling professionals in suits and we were in casuals. The staff welcomed us in and made us feel... More

Connected to The Regatta, it can be pretty packed on a Saturday night, but the food came quickly and was tasty. My cut of meat was a bit tough in places, but otherwise it was tasty. The jus was delicious! The wait staff were super friendly and efficient and the lighting and atmosphere were delightful.

The Boatshed has such potential to impress - the location alongside the Brisbane River is good. Unfortunately the performance of the team is not consistent enough to get more than 3 stars. The service started well, but fell away as soon as we had ordered our meal - no follow-up to check on our drinks or simply a walk past... More

Went here for a lunch catch up. Have to say the decor and set up is fantastic. The potential of the place providing a great experience was soon lost by the poor customer service and the exorbitant pricing.

We ordered eye fillet cooked rare which was presented to us untrimmed, extremely thin and overcooked. Very disappointing for somewhere that prides themselves on steaks. If we had received what is in the photo for this place we would have been delighted but as it was we wouldn't return.

On the Boxing Day holiday, a lot of restaurants were closed which meant that The Boatshed was possibly busier than usual. Despite the numbers evident in the restaurant, our group of 6 could see that the wait staff weren't flustered and not was there any noticeable delay in receiving the great meals or drinks. Congratulation on a job well done.

We had a sensational dinner here as a group of 6 people. The restaurant was really busy, but the service was good and the food wonderful. The food was well priced too. I look forward to a return visit.
