“Good for kids”
Reviewed 28 May 2014

Out of all the restaurants my 9 year old son could choose he picked Trinity Beach Tavern for his birthday dinner.
The kids enjoyed playing on the computer games and being able to interact with other kids.
The meal prices for kids are fantastic - $6 meals with the purchase of an adult meal. It includes a drink & ice cream as well, so the kids certainly don't go home hungry.
I ordered the lamb shoulder, and it was beautiful and tender. It was also good value for money and certainly filling.
It can be a little noisy particularly on the balcony so we chose to eat inside.
They had a soloist playing which added to the atmosphere.
The staff were friendly and also organised for sparklers to come out with my son's dessert so we could sing 'happy birthday'.

“Great view but......”
Reviewed 28 May 2014

The view is great so dine outside if you can. It is advisable to book ahead and ask for an outside table.
Parking is limited, they do offer a free shuttle bus which I would recommend using instead of driving.
Depending on what's on the menu - the majority is (like another review said) unappealing and disappointing.
Kids used to eat free and they would get a free icecream and drink with a paying adult. Kids are no longer able to eat free. Also the free drink that they get with their meal is either a soft drink or water. Our family does not drink soft drinks and water is free anyway. When asked if the kids could have a juice instead we were told that we had to pay extra pffft!!!!!! was our reply.
As for alcoholic drinks well that is hit and miss it all depends on whether they have rostered on staff that know the difference between a Gin with lemonade and a Bloody Mary.
Rather over priced food and drink for what you actually get.
Would I go again yeah probably if someone else paid and if I could find a baby sitter.

“Excellent service and value”
Reviewed 27 May 2014

The staff here were really friendly and helpful.
Our meals were really nice (sorry no photos this time!) The kids meals are only $3 and include a drink and dessert, when buying an adult meal.
I really enjoyed our meal here and the kids enjoyed the play area which had x box's (I think). They even had a clown making balloon animals which was great for the younger kids.

Spend the afternoon and evening here. Good experience! Drinks and meals were good and cheaper to other places (maybe the Sunday happy hour done it's trick too)

“Boring Pub Grub”
Reviewed 24 May 2014

Very unappealing meal here. The service though was terrific and you have to give points for the location - overlooking the beach. Even as pub meals go I thought it was disappointing. Cold chips, greasy fish and very bland salad.
