Food quality has dropped a lot we were there with a large group could not finish a $39 T bone steak thought it was just my food but I was not alone will not return with a large group again unless food gets better. Also Oysters were so tiny I wasn’t sure wether to laugh or cry. It was so hot while dining it was uncomfortable and I work out in the sun.

Great food and cooked quick with reasonable prices. Good facilities and atmosphere. Only one concern was the deck area was stifling hot as where we were had no fans. Suggest they look at the big fans and keep the area cool. If we had been inside it would have been great. A black beer on tap could also go well. Otherwise the 10 of us thoroughly enjoyed our lunch at full moon

The chicken burger was overcooked & dry. The duck salad was excellent. Great table in aircon with view

Lovely ambience on the front deck looking over Bramble Bay. Meal was tasty and reasonable price. Feel lucky to have this local haunt on our Sandgate doorsteps.

Came to the Full moon hotel for the first time with a group of 4 - including my elderly parents who are hard of hearing - we all loved it and created a lovely memory. They managed well with the noise level and the food was excellent: very high level Aussie pub fare. There were happy new year groups of families and the atmos was up beat and the service excellent. Thanks Full Moon, we’ll be back. 😃

We had our annual café lunch for 14 people and were impressed with how well the lunch went. The thing that impressed me the most was that you took the name of the person ordering for food. This cut through all issues of who order what. The staff were friendly and happy.

Always just a nice place to go for a relaxed-pace walk out on the pier and dinner afterwards

The Barramundi was the best I have ever had - super crispy skin & tender flesh. Delicious!

I’ve been at the full moon hotel numerous times. I have noticed that portion sizes are getting smaller while the price keeps going higher. Also, my meal was tasteless. I’ll come back again and will talk to the management if it is the same standard for my next visit.

The food was lovely but the service of the Bar staff was terrible. I was waiting in line with my friend for a drink and we were having a conversation whilst others ahead of us were being served. Then I heard “Hellooo???” From the lady bar tender in the rudest tone. I was actually really shocked she has said it, I watched her served other patrons with no smile, no interest in being there and as if we were all just an inconvenience for her .

The Full Moon hotel was very noisy and we had to wait a long time for our food which, when it arrived, was very disappointing - that applied to all 4 guests. The linguine in particular was totally overpowered by a heavy dose of chilli, whereas a tiny amount would have given zest, this spoiled the effect entirely. In retrospect I feel that the two diners who had this dish should have returned them. The pizza was dry and not appetising and the burger was unimpressive. The only thing we can highly recommend about this venue is the wonderful view. The service was average. If they lifted their performance in the kitchen I doubt they would cope with the influx of diners of any given day. The coffee and cake was, however, very good and welcome.

What a wonderful evening and dinner, Full Moon was prompt with meals , all were beautifully presented and wonderfully flavoursome, specials were terrific. All meals were hearty and some had to be shared for medical reasons. Unfortunately no small options were offered

Lovely place for afternoon coffee or wine. Sitting outside with the glimpses of water and sea breeze does the soul good .
If you like music and chatter inside is good however the place for a quiet chat is definitely outside.

We had a lovely lunch at the Full Moon. The meals were beautiful and everybody in our group of 7 was very happy with the quality of the food. Your staff member Kieran was also excellent. He was very friendly and helpful to our group.

I enjoyed my experience there but I didn’t like the fellow taking food orders
I thought he was too abrupt and calling “next’ there was my 2 friends and a couple behind us so not a long queue. We knew our table number and what we wanted so no need to rush us That part I didn’t enjoy
Also cake /coffee deal should read cake of the DAY and coffee. Not make out you can have any cake

Booking on line worked so well, and we were seated on the deck, we put this seating request on line. Food very tasty. We would have liked 0.0 Heineken from bar..but not stocked.

We have been to the Full Moon a number of times and enjoyed the meal but this one was delicious. We (2 of us )had the fish of the day which was a Salmon with stir fried vegetables. It was well presented and I would have it again. I was looking for Salmon on the menu and only that I saw others get this dish that I asked the staff. I am surprised that it is not on as a permanent meal.

The dinning table and chairs were old. The person who took my order was rude not just to me but staff also. The food was basic my partners main was Luke warm. The noise from the tv’s around the room and in the next section drowned out any conversation you could have. I know it’s a motel but sports on tv on a Saturday night what happened to music. We went there for a special occasion, will not be back.

I don't make recommendations to family and friends, so I always answer the recommendation question "no". The Full Moon Hotel is a pleasant venue but would benefit from more bar staff and food order staff on a Saturday night. The food is great and pretty good value for the quality but the wine list is overpriced.
