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

Situated on Torrens River. Went for lunch on a sunday. Had to wait 30mins for a table previously booked. Menus etc slow to arrive. Once we ordered all went well. Service good and food selection expansive. The duck was excellent. Keep room for dessert. The pavlova was outstanding. A tad pricy wines particularly. Overall a good experience but avoid sundays.

Four visits over the last 12 months, all where the food was good and enough variations in the menu to keep it interesting. Prices are drifting upwards, but this is on par for fine dining.

Jolleys has been around for as long as I can remember, and my most recent visit confirms why it's an enduring icon on the Adelaide riverfront. The menu is tight but well curated, not too much choice - just a handful of choices all meticulously put together. When we first arrived, the airconditioning had not been turned on yet, and... More

Had a gift voucher used toward a family member birthday. Impressed with excellent service, great food, and ambient atmosphere. First visit to this place. Not cheap but we were happy to pay for a great night out. Now the pavlova was huge!!! We recommend!
