“Wedding reception”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 March 2014

Our first visit to the new Muddy Waters Cafe and it was great.
We were a small party of 5 for my friends wedding reception.
The service was fast and friendly and the staff knew the history of the building too.
We all enjoyed our meals and I have to say that the lemon and oregano chicken that I had was superb as was the delicious flourless chocolate cake.
The menu is not very big but there was still a good choice and something for every taste.
All the meals were beautifully presented.
The outdoor seating area on the verandah was good with views of the Mary River and pretty gardens.
A perfect venue for that special meal.
I can't wait to visit again.
Well done :-)

“Absolutely Delicious!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 March 2014

We have been here a couple of times in the last few months and the food is absolutely amazing. Very tasty, very well cooked and great flavours. The staff are extremely friendly and the atmosphere is great. We went there for Valentines Day the last time and had the set menu, which was just awesome. I'm running out of words to describe it all. Definitely Recommend it though.

“Great Lunch”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 February 2014

One of the two best restaurants on Fraser Coast. Other restaurants owners should dine here to see how it should be done. The menu was interesting and varied and the food superb with good generous servings. We had the Caesar salad with chicken and also the squid on a green mango salad. Their Caesar salad is one of the best I have ever eaten either here in Australia or overseas and the squid dish was equally delicious I am looking forward to coming back again to try more dishes.
It is a lovely setting (old heritage building) with veranda dining overlooking the Mary River. There is also inside seating. Good P.R. from the chef with the diners.

“Very Good”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 December 2013

The food was very good, tasty and adventurous, well presented, service is great.
The atmosphere is great with a nice ambiance, the wine selection was very good for where the cafe is, the chef owner was very good at coming out to see how things were.

“Nice View of the river”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 November 2013

This place has a lovely old world charm about it ! has a good menu and the coffee is nice.It has inside and verandah seating and the staff are very friendly.Most seating has a view of the Mary river and gardens.The only draw back is that sometimes they seem under staffed and some things take a little long.Over all a good place to visit.
