Beautiful location on the river on a perfect summer day set the scene for a lovely lunch. The restaurant itself is beautiful, service first class and the food divine. Also a good selection of local wine reasonably priced.

We enjoyed a lovely dinner at this venue. This venue has a delightful outlook over the Torrens River and the ambience is warm and friendly. The staff were welcoming, friendly and attentive on a very busy night. The menu is engaging and comprehensive but the specials caught our attention. We chose the barramundi wings special to start, which was served... More

The experience at Jolley's is always relaxing, whether it is lunch or dinner! Sitting by the water and watching the activities whilst drinking fine South Australian wine and eating wonderful food is always a pleasure! We recently went for dinner on a Monday night and i have to say it was quiet (but usually when we have gone it has... More

This restaurant was recommended to us by a local tour guide. We stopped in at 7:00 p.m. without a reservation. After a short wait, we were seated at a lovely table overlooking the water. We had three different mains and all were delicious: Flathead fish had amazing Moroccan flavours, the duck was superb and the gnocchi with prawns had a... More

Well, we really wanted to enjoy our dinner. Everyone we talked to said it was great. I ordered the prawn and gnocchi and my fiancé got the flank steak special. I don't know how else to explain it; it just wasn't good. The flavors were off and I just can't figure out if the chef had the night off and... More

We last visited this establishment in 2013 for lunch and previously have been here for dinner. This particular day was a very hot 40C and the walk down to the riverside from the city was a little uncomfortable but that was soon forgotten when we took our first sip of a bottle of Moet! Jolley’s Boathouse is a top eatery... More

For top class food and service at very reasonable prices. This is a must! What is really only a few dollars more than cheaper restaurants you get the A class service one would expect. Been back a few times and will continue to return! Thanks for yet another great night.

My partner and I come to Jolleys at least once a year - we save it for a special occasion and are never disappointed. The location is superb, the food is excellent and the service is professional and friendly. One of the meals on the menu had peas in (I really dislike peas) but the rest of the meal sounded... More
