Always stop here when riding back from the Sunshine Coast. Easy parking for motorcycles across the rode in full view. The food is great and the staff are always friendly and helpful, they have even made me something to eat that wasn't on the menu, so that is good customer service. Worth stopping for coffee or a meal, check it... More

My wife and I would come here every Friday night and split a burger and a beer, we are not big eaters so we share. We were eventually made to feel so uncomfortable and pressured to eat up and spend more , we stopped going. Foods ok , rude staff I think is the owner. Shame

Nice friendly service. Menu looked appealing but expensive. Food was definitely not worth what we paid. Small portion and not very good. Tourist rip off....but wait...we are Australian! Try somewhere else.

Huge meals and busy restaurant during holiday season. The schnitzel's were huge but slightly overlooked. The service was ok and the young waitress was trying her best but they could have done with more staff to ensure drinks service was kept up. Great view from the dining area.

Being of German decent we eat it wherever we can. This has to one of the best German feasts we've had on the east coast. Great fast service, fresh food and the best sauerkraut we've had in years. Now called Bavarian on the Beach. Well done, we'll be back!

Just standard pub food, worst meals we have had in Mooloolaba, the food at this place was an embarrassment for all the locals
