My wife and I both enjoyed the best steak we've had for a long time. We'll be back for that reason alone, however the whole dining experience was good. Attentive staff, nice vibe, good service even though it was a very busy night.
Always a good meal and good service.
I loved eating here. My mother certainly had her own opinions though!!
We both had the fish and chips. I thought it was fine! My mum... not so much.
‘This fish is the same as the frozen boxed fish in woolies’
‘This isn’t salad. This is just lettuce. A pile of lettuce does not make a salad. Do I need to go back there and show them how to make a salad?’
‘Chips are good, not too many.’
Food and service by staff were very good and considered to be good value...Parking under the building was a bonus...I thought the price of wine by the bottle was a bit steep !!! Overall..very good Stan Mc
Always delicious food and excellent service, great atmosphere. Always recommend here to my friends
Good outlook —————————————xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxoooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo
Just ticked off on our 15th meal in twelve months and you never let us down! Food and service are awesome ! We will be back soon !
All meals were excellent and served within a decent timeframe for a large group, and a packed out restaurant.
We had an enjoyable meal however, the noise in the dining room made it very difficult to have conversations.
First time here , food was excellent and staff were very friendly and helpfull.We will be back
All our visits to Brightwater Hotel for meals have been enjoyable experiences, offering good value Seniors meals, wonderful and super-helpful staff amid a scenic waterside venue. We love going here.
Great service, nice location. Kids area was a hit.
Great venue and dining experience ! Staff were friendly and helpful .
The service and staff were outstanding. Was a pleasure to be served by the staff they were very courteous, polite and with a very happy demeanour
The food was good, but I don't like standing in line to order it. Prices are reasonable , staff are very pleasant eating outside is much more quiet. It's good for a quick meal for my husband and myself overlooking water. I have seen quite large groups having a party and they seen to be enjoying themselves. It's an around good place for adults and children for meals.
A nice spot for lunch especially on the deck. The music was a bit loud for the middle of the day.
great place to have a meal and enjoy the view over the lake
OK but not wonderful. We booked based on a previous visit and it was certainly not as good as 2 weeks ago.
No Specials. Ordinary Salad (just Lettuce and Tomato) and too many chips.
"Good enough" but not great.
Amazing food. We had the bug tails, salmon tostadas and the pecking duck rolls. All was delicious. Kids enjoyed their menu too. Will be back for sure
Was a great night out, staff were friendly and helpful, despite having a large table, the delays were minimal and the food was delicious!
We have been here for work Xmas do 3 years in a row. Great venue.
I was hoping for a good pub chicken parma but unfortunately it was dry & looked as if it was mass manufactured. The slaw/salad was a bit "stale".
Friends who has fish & chips enjoyed them.
The venue was lovely, the service was brilliant, those girls worked so hard in the the heat, undercover parking was perfect, unfortunately the food was not worth what we paid, prices were high and it lacked quality, l had the battered fish it was more batter than fish, my daughter had the steak , she asked for medium & it was more like well done!!!!!!!!!!!!!
First time there,was seated immediately,ordered our meals & in no time at all our meals arrived,outstanding definitely be back👍👍👍
Overall it was great. We were able to find a quieter corner to hold our team meeting and then have dinner afterwards.
Although the drinks were ordered and served to the table I found it strange and rather inconvenient to have to stand in line for almost a half hour waiting to order our dinners. Other Hotels in the same chain do provide full table service for meals and drinks. Those staff taking drinks orders via iPad could have also been taking meals orders and if so we probably would have ordered dessert.
Overall the entire evening was really good for a group of 11.
The hotel was a little loud, but that is what you kind of expect. After a while when many of the tables had finished and left the remainder of our time was excellent. All of our meals were of a good quality.
Sunday night for my Birthday dinner was a big success.
Thank You Brightwaterr Hotel.
Really good food and friendly staff. The facility is also very nice but both times I’ve been there for dinner, the noise is so loud that we had to ask to turn down the music as the people visiting were already making a lot of noise.
So great food but not a nice place if you want to speak to each other.
Fabulous meal again. We tried the special which was snapper. So fresh and delicious!
The steaks were excellent and the vegetables were cooked perfectly. Unfortunately the place was very noisy but the luckily the table near the water was a bit away from the busyness.
Food & service both good. All staff were happy & helpful. Love that you can order drink at table without having to go up to bar all time. Only downside it is quite noisy
Our food was delicious, staff were friendly and professional. I would dine here again and would definitely recommend to my friends.
Love the friendly staff, delis food, great out door alfresco atmosphere. My favourite dining place.
Lovely place to have dinner. The food was only mediocre and up there in price. The staff were lovely.
Great value for money & excellent service we will be back!
Perfect as always. The food was epic, the staff were friendly and attentive and the views were lovely. We all love coming here
Great food and service. Staff were friendly and apologetic when kids decided to walk past and egg the outdoor eating area on Halloween.
Great service, excellent friendly staff always, highly recommended!! We were all so impressed!
Beautiful food, beautiful prices, definitely value for your money. Beautiful surroundings right on the water. Friendly staff and prompt service.
Great seniors menu. Loved the barramundi and the wait-staff are exceptional. We’ll be back!
Excellent visit and staff very helpful with our organised event. Thanls
We were greeted with a smile. The pub was busy but you wouldn’t know it, service was outstanding. We ordered the steak, macadamias crusted roughy and a chicken snitzel, then banana sticky date for dessert. All meals were first class.
