We caught the courtesy bus from airlie beach hotel to Northerlies, the bus was on time and the service was excellent. The venue was quite beautiful, with a backdrop of palms, the ocean, wildlife and perfectly manicured lawns it was hard not to feel relaxed. The staff were super friendly and professional. The service was fast, food fresh and very tasty. The Pina Colvada was delicious, I could have easily had more than two. The courtesy bus took us back to Airlie Beach once we were ready. A perfect evening ❤️

My wife and I were on our first visit to Airlie Beach, People at our resort and some tours we did with Just Tukin Around Airlie Beach said If we had the time we should include Northerlies Beach Bar and Grill to check out while we were in Airlie Beach. We can say we are so glad we did. The location was stunning, the food was magnificent and the staff were warm, friendly and helpful as it was our first visit they made it a pleasant experience and another highlight of our holiday to Airlie Beach. We do know when we do make it back to Airlie Beach for future holidays. We will certainly going back to Northerlies because once is never enough. Regards Brendan & Glenda Redcliffe QLD

The brisket was slightly dry but apart from that the rest of the food was delicious. The ambience is the best you will find in and around Airlie Beach. Its a must visit establishment when staying in the beautiful whitsundays. Ps im only bringing up the brisket cause my girlfriend will winge about anything.

Beautiful setting and good meals.
A little disappointing that the staff didn't mention that all food will arrive at once, not as entree and then mains. Not told this when originally seated, nor when ordering meals which was clearly an entree to share (bread and dips) and then 2 main meals. First we knew of it was 1 minute after receiving the bread and dips, waitress trying to serve the mains.
If I was being critical, I would say the music could be turned down just a little too, but that might just be me getting old!

Northerlies was recommended to us by other guests staying at the same hotel as us and it didn’t disappoint. We found it easily, were seated at a nice table and enjoyed our evening there very much.
The staff were all very pleasant and helpful, menu selection was great, the food was really tasty and the prices were excellent. Loads of ambiance, plenty of parking, operates a shuttle bus and great value for money.
We would highly recommend Northerlies and if we ever return to Airlie Beach we will most definitely eat there again.

On the night we were there,the atmosphere and of course location was fantastic! The service I felt was lacking. All our food came out at once even though we’d clearly ordered entrees first, then while we were picking over the food toward the end the staff (who had not been near us anytime throughout the dining experience ) kept coming over to clear plates and glasses and at one point tried to take the cutlery away whilst there was clearly food still on the table to be eaten - very odd.
Food was delicious- chefs doing a great job that’s for sure !
Will come back if back in the area
