We have been going here on and off for several years and the food quality goes up and down. The outside deck badly needs to be done up. There is but the deck with the water feature and the little bridge makes it a nice place to eat. They have a room with games for the kids so you at least can have some peace and quiet while you have your meal. As I have already said the quality of the food is very hit and miss,we have had some really beautiful meals and some very tough steaks. Every time we have cake it is always dry.

2 burgers. 1 beef and 1 fish. Only 6 customers in the restaurant.
3 chefs in the kitchen. 2 service staff
Manager sitting in the restaurant doing book work on her Apple laptop. This is not the place to use as a personal office.

You would think everything would be perfect?????

NO!!

Beef burger still rare when served. So cold it couldn't even soften the processed cheese single placed on top of the bacon.
Bun not toasted or buttered. It was stale and dry. No attention to detail.

Fish burger no seasoning, cold not palatable

No cutlery served with burger
No offer of sauces
S&P shakers in baskets that you need 6 inch long thin fingers to remove from the container. Really not a convenient design.

Unsupervised children running back and forward behind our table to the child's playing area being very annoying and oblivious to our dining experience

Relatively cheap but this is no excuse for poor attention to details and lack of professional conduct.

The best thing was the entertainment from the resident Frill neck lizard and 3 Egrets that came to get a snack from us. They enjoyed the food more than us.

All need improve before we come back or recommend this restaurant.

Truly great food. The restaurant has a great atmosphere and is set up to be a great venue for kids. With jumping castle and play station ETC. Highly recommended

The boat house tavern has come along way from just being a tradie bar with naked girls. The waterfire restaurant has become a very nice place for family to visit and enjoy. There is even a jumping castle for the kids .
However there are still 2 main problems.
1) is the price the meals are definitely not priced as pub meals. But the quality of food was excellent
2) you still get the tradies down the other end of the venue which can get a bit pull on sometimes.

Over all I would say it's worth going to and enjoy the outdoor dining area but don't go there if you try to eat cheap.
