Good place for a large group to gather. This year we were put outside in the courtyard....it was really very hot out there...even with the umbrellas. Last year we were inside where it was much cooler....and definitely more comfortable. This year, we didn't stay on for more drinks and char after our lunch...because of the heat. Anyway...I had the Caesar Salad...delicious...very fresh...a definite for next time. I know the pizzas were a hit with some of our group...as were the fish & chips. Sadly with a big group it takes a while to queue up to order...but then the meals came out in a reasonable time. All in all, this is a good place to eat with a large group or small...the food is good & the staff are friendly.

Perhaps because if was the New Year's Day holiday that our experience left a lot to be desired.
Maybe there were not enough staff rostered on which led to longer wait times than expected.
We had to wait to be greeted and offered a table.
While our drink order was taken straightaway, the drinks didn't arrive for a long time and seemed to have been sitting on the bar for a long time.
Our food order was taken reasonably quickly and the meal came reasonably quickly.
But we ordered wine to go with the meal, but they didn't arrive before we had finished the meal.

They were okay but nothing outstanding.
Given the prices, the meals could have been better.

We went to the Sands on the 30th Dec. to catch up with friends. Sat on the deck, which was a good choice as there was a lovely breeze to help us keep cool.
Plenty to choose from the menu and we did not have to wait too long for our meals to arrive. Most of the meals were a good size, except the steak dinners. They were a bit small for the price. Drink prices were reasonable with a good selection. Overall we had a good time and would go back again.

The restaurant has a good vibe to it and the drink menu is quite good. Everyone at my table really enjoys their food. However, service is a bit of hit and miss. I would appreciate if staff would be more attentive. The night we were there, it was not a busy night but we found ourselves having to go over to the bar to order any kind of drinks. Personally, I would definitely come back as I do enjoy the food, drink and atmosphere.

I'm a musician and had a gig here. I play all over Brisbane and most hotel gigs just suck! This place is beautiful and fun and he outside patio is perfect. The staff is extremely helpful and nice! Well done
