“Awesome lunch with the familie”
Reviewed 24 April 2014

We had a great lunch today at The Boathouse. Staff was very friendly and attentive. The meals were great as well, I had yummy prosciutto with goats cheese and my husband chose the Wagyu beef burger. We have two little kids and decides to sit at the back of the restaurant on the deck, where it was a bit quieter. The kids had a great time watching the Pelicans while my husband and I enjoyed a glass of wine before our meals arrived. Thanks to the staff!

“Unhappy Group”
Reviewed 12 April 2014

Wouldn't change a meal by leaving the salad off and the dressing runs through the meal, Not good when the young children have allergies. When we asked for this we were told the chef won't change the menu.

“Fantastic Dining Experience - can't wait to return!”
Reviewed 9 April 2014

Thank-you for the team at The Boathouse for a sensational dining experience. Your scallops and oysters were delicious, and our mains were delightful.
All your staff were friendly and efficient throughout the evening.

We can't wait to return to enjoy your view with a chilled bubbles and scallops for a lazy Sunday lunch!

“Sweeping views across Noosa river. A must!!”
Reviewed 8 April 2014

Came here with some colleagues in March and had a wonderful time, staff was very attentive and friendly and we enjoyed sunset drinks overlooking the water. We hated the seafood platter which was very generously portioned. Would like to come back here for date night with my boyfriend sometime -very romantic rooftop bar which is generally quiet:)

“Excellent Service & Fresh Seafood”
Reviewed 8 April 2014

I really enjoyed my experience at The Boathouse.
Our group was welcomed and seated by one the owners Phil, which was a nice touch.
We ordered the seafood platter as a main and it was delicious, so fresh!
I also tried a few of the cocktails and I would highly recommend the 'Sheena Baby'.
I would highly recommend this waterfront restaurant to anyone in the area.
