Food good location great. Unfortunately not very accommodating for children in fact frowned upon that we brought a child, made feel like she won’t bring in enough money. Also told at the start of the evening that we needed to hurry things along because there is a booking behind us overall felt very unwelcome such a shame was a birthday dinner.

Love it - have never ever had a disappointment - but would love to see that "Apple crumble" back on the menu - the bug rolls and yellow curry are our favourite. Such a casual but upmarket place all in one.

Exceptional food. Great banquet. Extensive wine list and arguably the best location on the Gold Coast. Book early for a window table.

Fabulous ambience, but don't sit on the western side around lunchtime.

The food ranged from nearly inedible (salty) to excellent, as did the service.

Overall inconsistent and pricey because of this.

well worth a visit. Food that we enjoyed was sensational, disappointed with the one dish I was looking forward to Unfortunately the squid, snake bean, watermelon dish was not at its freshest, beans on the turn and tough, squid tough on the outside and funny softness inside. Overall great Asian influence menu
Staff amazing Thankyou.

As always the food and service impeccable.
But the heat was unbearable. Whilst on the beach, you expect a little breeze. But nothing the heat really impacted the experience. You need to have more fans. This us my 3rd visit, whilst i love the restaurant, i wont go again on a hot day, you cant relax. In Hawaii they have the large square ceiling fans keeping you cool. Please add more fans.

Certainly not as good as the last time while food is still good at peak times unfortunately I think guest turnover seems to be a higher priority need to come out of peak holiday time and try again !

Wow! The food and location at Rick Shores did not disappoint. After the delicious bug rolls for entree we decided to be a little adventurous and bypass the curries for the pan fried snapper and pork hock with some sides. Could not fault! The Gold Coast skyline view and waves crashing just outside made it extra unique.

Atmosphere and decor is fresh yet intimate. Beautiful spot with a full view of Burliegh beach, parking is a nightmare when the beach is busy though so we parked across from the bowling club.
Service was exceptional, the cocktail list in extensive and delicious! We had the feed me option was excellent we didnt have to make any choices and got a to taste so many things of the menu. (Red curry was hotter than expected though!)
We will Be back for more of the bug rolls they are divine!!!!!

This was my first experience at Rick Shores, and was blown away. From the moment we arrived to the moment we left the service, food and beverage were 10/10. I am from NQ, but will make Rick Shores a must do each time i am back visiting family. Hot tip... the bug rolls are the BEST thing i have ever eaten.

We have very dear friends from Sydney that holiday on the coast during the Xmas break each year. And each year we booked At Rick Shores for our annual lunch (which usually goes from mid day to around five in the afternoon!). Fantastic service, fantastic views, fantastic food.

Superb location, tasty food but although the service was very friendly, it took a very long time for the food to arrive. We’d been there about an hour and 15 minutes before the starters turned up.

The food in your restaurant was excellent, but the noise level was gross, we could not even have a conversation across the table. We will never visit again, unless you fix the acoustics. Such a shame to have a special occasion absolutely spoilt by not being able to hold a conversation with our family, who had flown in specially for the celebration.

Amazing view and great ambience. Food was asian inspired and we really enjoyed the bug rolls (Moreton Bay bug tails battered served in a brioche bun with lettuce and mayo), and the duck curry (spicy coconut sauce and tender duck pieces) which we had with the roti bread instead of rice. The prices are at the high end but the service was great and the view out to the surf is spectacular!

Our experience overall was exceptional however I’d like to express a few disappointments.
When I booked, well in advance I requested a table by the window for 4 persons as it was a birthday celebration. On arrival we were not given such a table and a table of 4 by the window remained unattended for at least an hour!
Also we were at the first seating for lunch-12pm. We were told we were to be finished by 2.15pm. We noticed every other table seated for the 1st seating remained at their table past the 2.15 pm time slot whereas we were relocated to the bar to finish our dessert and have further food and drinks.

I felt because we were obliging it was to our disadvantaged and prevented us having a completely lovely experience and I question why other tables weren’t given the same instructions as us.
