“Less cool please... more cheesecake!”
Reviewed 3 September 2013

Although there wasn't a solid reason not to go back, I felt both rushed and ignored by the bare-armed heavily tattooed waitress who had 3 tables and made it look very difficult, without actually doing a whole lot.

The food was well conceived but in the case of both the fish and fries the oil was probably not hot enough as they were a bit saturated with oil, making it all a bit heavy.

There were plenty of references to the place of the television show without it having much of the feel. I imagine they make more than Molly's did in the day ... and who can blame them for this effort? I will say that the cheesecake made me wake up at 3 am and wonder if I could volunteer a shift in the early morning just to spend some quality time with the pastry chef.

“A touch of Fame”
Reviewed 31 August 2013

We had afternoon tea in this charming little restaurant. People were friendly and the tetley tea was a nice surprise. It seems that this restaurant was used in a Tv series for many years. It had something to do with beachcombers. Not only was their lots of memrobelia they were also showing one of the old showings.
Cute.

“Memories”
Reviewed 29 August 2013 via mobile

Grew up watching The Beachcombers so I always like to visit when we come to the Sunshine Coast. Went twice this trip. First time was for Fish & Chips. Then on the second visit it was the Relic Burger. Enjoyed both.

“Stop in for the view, nostalgia and fish and chips!”
Reviewed 14 August 2013

After a long drive from Alberta this restaurant hit the spot. Quite possibly some of the best fish and chips I have ever had. Greats view of the harbour, decent prices, service was a bit slow.

Would recommend this spot unless you are in a rush.

“Rustic Charm”
Reviewed 11 August 2013

Mollys Reach Pub was made famous by the 70's drama The beachcombers, for those that are too young to have seen it. We stopped for breakfast recently and sat at the outside patio, to people watch.We had bacon,eggs,sausage,hash browns and toast, it was served quickly and tasted delicious. Later we called back for beer, there are tables inside that overlook a spectacular view of the marina and Howe Sound. We will definately be back.
