Description: Set in the picturesque backdrop of Pelican Waters with views across the waterway and golf club, The Grill offers a contemporary Australian menu alongside extensive grill selections. Spending much of his career working on the coast, Head chef Benjamin Limpus has created a menu that features the freshest seasonal, local produce and the best cut's of meat from select Australian farms. Dishes like Wagyu Beef Tataki, flame roasted chilli, finger lime, shiitake dust and Manhattan Seafood Chowder, sourdough, matchstick vegetables, prawn oil are just two of the highlights. The signature dish - 100 day Grain fed 800gm Rump for two with chermoula basted Mooloolaba king prawns, roasted potatoes, jus - is must try for steak lovers. The wine list compliments the restaurant menu with a large selection of reds and a extensive cellar to match everyone’s liking. Guests can enjoy pre-dinner cocktails and drinks in our spacious bar or on the terrace whilst enjoying views of Pelican Waters

having been here once before a year ago, we thought we'd go again for a special occasion dinner, and we were not disappointed. The restaurant has a 5 star appeal, the waitress was a delight and very informative. Our meals were delivered promptly and the serving size was plentiful, given some 5 star venues charge the earth and fail to deliver on quality or quantity. His surf and turf was a real delight - bugs can be a bit bland, but these were delish. My Panache of Local Seafood was yum - just didn't enjoy fiddling with prawn heads & tails in my finery! The desserts were simply stunning on the plate and even more so on the palate. 2 mains, 2 deserts, 2 beers, 2 glasses sav blanc and one sticky with dessert, $120.00. great outlook. geat service. top food. next week we will try the seafood buffet the waitress told us about - as we had no clue they offered such a treat -with live music too.

The restaurant has a Sea Food Buffet every Friday night with live music entertainment. The sea food is of excellent quality, including bugs, blue swimmer crab, prawns, oysters, mussels etc... There is also a large selection of hot food and salads. The desserts and chocolate fountain are delicious. There is also a lovely cheese platter. All food is replenished during the evening. Service is friendly and efficient. Booking is essential. Our only complaint is the wine is expensive.
