The split level restaurant has a great location on the banks of the Burnett River and is often a hive of activity with the fresh seafood store being located alongside. Not surprising that the menu features a good range of fish dishes, but there are meat and vegetarian options as well. Nothing wrong with my beer battered fish & chip special, but it's self service, so at $16, it didn't represent particularly good value. Reasonable selection of wines and beers and a good party venue, but we'll stick with buying from the cold store and cooking on the bbq.

We recently celebrated our 50th wedding anniversary with a cruise on the Bundy Belle followed by dinner at Grunske's for 30 people. The lower level of the restaurant was dedicated to us for the evening and we had dedicated staff to assist with decorating the venue and looking after all our needs throughout the evening. The food was fabulous too - prawns were awesome.

We used to be regular visitors who always enjoyed great value, tasty meals. The last six months or so the food has been average and overpriced. The past 6-7 visits have been disappointing and service mostly bad. Other family members are not returning either after having similar experiences.
I wonder if there is a new chef or manager? It's a shame, it has all the right ingredients!
It used to be our favourite spot.

If you are looking for a really good restaurant with an excellent choice of fresh seafood then this is the place to go. It's not cheap but worth every cent for a tasty dish of your choice. And to top it all - there are great views from the balcony tables.

There is no doubt that the food is good , we found it a little expensive, get a table on the river , Its a lot better since the floods, the cold store is great , we buy all our seafood there and its always very good, it gets very busy on the weekends , so get in early if you want a river view
