    Comparing it to the Townsville one.. Townsville 1000 times better. Gold Coast one was okay, a bit old, chairs old and no table service at all apart from bringing you the food. Very overpriced for what you get.. the Townsville one has waffle fries and always have so much good. GC one - $14 for the tiniest kids meal ever.. food was average and a bit cold. Bit disappointed but otherwise it was okay. 3 stars.

    Food was good, but what’s the point of having starters on a menu, if they’re going to be delivered at the same time as the mains.

    This was the second time I have dined at longboards for lunch and unfortunately the experience was not great. There was 3 or us, we ordered 3 drinks, 3 burgers and chips - everything came out a different times and the burgers were cold. The restaurant was not busy, otherwise I would have understood the mismatched timing. Disappointing, we won’t be back.

    3/10 average service and food…. App driven service… surcharges on everything…. Food came out lukewarm… although favours where good…. Staff running backwards and forwards to and back to the kitchen… not knowing which table to take the food to…. Food sitting to long under food lamps before being delivered to the customer’s

    Great night out, happy with food and drinks in general. A little disappointed that everything on the menu was not showing available via the me&u app, however the options we did go with were tasty & generous. Word of warning - the ring burner chicken burger IS HOT (not a complaint, I loved it!)
