Absolutely wonderful food and very quick service, we will be back and will also recommend to family and friends
We came with two best mates this time and pigged out with nibbles, 4 entres and a main each with cocktails and 2 bottles of wine. As usual it was all just fantastic. We especially loved the prawns harissa, the lamb ribs and of course our favorite bugs. Can't wait for the next visit.
We were so happy with our experience, we will definitely be back. The staff were incredible and the food was amazing. Thank you for making my mums birthday so memorable
It was lovely to dine in this restaurant great food and lovely service Would definitely recommend
Loved everything about banksia and love supporting local businesses to see them succeed in the bay.
We have dined here a number of times and we have enjoyed all meals. Great place to dine
Seafood chowder is the best I’ve ever had absolutely delicious.
Great food and amazing service.
Definitely will recommend.
The food is by far the best in the Bay, combined with the great service and atmosphere. Congratulations Banksia on making Our dining experience so memorable.
Amazing night with Amazing food quiet atmosphere recommended to anyone.
Very good on all counts, thoroughly enjoyed. Service and Food exceptional.
Everything was yum.
Needs more craft beer options on tap.
The online reservation process is very user friendly with follow up emails to confirm and remind the customer.
Bugs were tasteless & rubbery (and over $50 a serve). Seafood chowder also bland.
Rocket salad had nice dressing but the rocket was all stalk & no leaves…
Mackerel pate & scallop entree were delicious.
Service was friendly but not attentive; poured our own drinks all night & had to wave for attention to get salt for our table.
A shame really - nicely decorated; good wine list - has such potential.
Absolutely phenomenal meals and desserts. Again!
What a great night out. Our group of 6 enjoyed our night with good food and great service. We'll be back!
Banksia seafood & Grill was a wonderful dining experience. The food was amazing. It’s my second time there & it won’t be my last.
Hello KarenB, We very much appreciate the feedback and we LOVE to see our regulars, looking forward to seeing you again soon! Kind regards Aleeca and Saul
Thoroughly enjoyed our lunch at Banksia. Food and service alike were outstanding. Will definitely go back.
First time to Banksia and totally loved it. Everything was very well cooked and the service was outstanding.
The price is up there but with the quality of the food, we didn’t mind at all.
Thank you again
Thank you Teresav for your lovely feedback, we are delighted you enjoyed and look forward to welcoming you back again in the future. Kind regards The Banksia Team
We have dined at this restaurant several times since opening and we have never been disappointed. Outstanding 10/10 all round. We recommend Banksia to all our friends and guests.
Greetings LynM, Thank you for the amazing recommendation, we will always strive to continue this for you! Kind regards The Banksia Team
Great experience, a little noisy but this was overshadowed by great food, service and value.
Hello Mick, Thank you for the review, and we hope to assure you we are working to rectify the noise issue soon! Cannot wait to see you again! Kind regards The Banksia Team
Great seafood, The oysters and scallops were fantastic
Hello KarlK, Thank you for your lovely review, we work hard to serve fresh local seafood which we think is just great! Very happy you enjoyed it too! Kind regards The Banksia Team
Great food, great service, great decor.
We had lunch, sunny light & bright.
Food quality was quite good, Oysters fresh, Chowder lovely, steak was fantastic. Service was patchy. Staff were supper friendly but badly trained for a fine dining establishment charging this much.
Behind the bar was terrible, badly organized run off there feet, food came before a simple bottle of wine! Forgotten drinks order etc.
Worst of all was the waitress came and just put our bottle of $100 wine we ordered, on the table with out opening it or pouring it and just walked off??? never had to serve my own drinks at a venue where I paid $80 for a main...........
Overall I would go back, but this is feedback to watch foe the service behind the bar.
Seafood chowder was amazing
Service was great not intrusive
Mains, we all had the spatchcock were ok
Going back for sure
Good and service was on point. Would definitely recommend and go back.
It would help if there were partitioned areas as noise level was high and everyone I know who has visited have said the same.
Absolutely delicious 😋
All are meals were incredible, by far the best in the bay 😊
First time at Banksia with a group of friends. The food was amazing. We had starters mains and dessert and could not fault any of it.
Really great menu
Banksia brew tank was empty so disappointed. Could only drink water!
I enjoyed Zucchini Flowers and my friend had the scallops yum
Dessert frangipani and rhubarb were fantastic
Finally found my favourite Hervey Bay chef after COVID closure
But the acoustics are so bad
Best option would be to sit outside
Beautiful open space - feels crisp and modern. Food was excellent as was the service.
Went for lunch with friend this time. Had seafood chowder entree as main meal. It was superb, close to the best I have ever had. And it was big enough as the main meal. Loving this restaurant!!
Fantastic food and service. A great place for ver special occasions
All excellent! ...............................................,,,,....,.....................................................
Amazing food and good service will be going back !
Excellent food and exceptional service. Because of the large room, the noise from larger tables makes it difficult to hear if you are out in a small group. This is the second time we have been since it opened. I love it, but the noise levels put me off for an intimate/small party of people who actually just want to talk. Both times, we have been close to a table of young women celebrating something, however they screeched through the whole experience and for us this is very off-putting.
The most delicious food I have found in Hervey Bay. Perfectly cooked, adventurous flavours, really lovely staff, I think I'm going to be a regular customer.
The staff here are very well trained, which shows in their attention to the customers and their knowledge. They were attentive, but did not intrude. The service was of a very high standard, as was the food.
The ambience is airy and pleasant - the white decor is just right for this restaurant.
Unfortunately the acoustics are not good, however that has been a feature of this building for many years. There is probably little that can be done without significant expense.
Meals were very delicious and well presented. Pricewise - a little expensive, but for a special occasion worth it.
Banksia has a calm ambience and the staff have remarkable fine dining service. The food was delicious. I would highly recommend this venue.
