Rick Shores is always amazing. I took my best friend for the first time and she was in awe.
the food was so delicious, the service is so good and the view is outstanding. It also was my friends birthday and they made desert very special for her which I was unaware of. So that ended our lunch off well. We are coming back at the end of the year to celebrate my big birthday. Rest assured I'll be back before then.

Rick Shores again delivered a fabulous evening. The food was superb. The waterfront views amazing.
We know we will be joining you again. A special Thank You for the front row table as requested. Nothing beats this to wow southern guests.
See you again.

After booking a month earlier we were seated at a concrete bench not a table, the place was packed and the noise was ridiculous, we were told we could have a table in an hour ???

A beautiful venue and the food was outstanding!
Charging $35 for a children’s meal was slightly high, but overall a wonderful lunch.

I flew in and went straight to Rick Shores for a girls lunch. We had the best seat in the house- decided on set menu that was absolutely Devine. The service was exceptional, oh and the cocktails and wine - perfect. This is why Rick Shores in one of my favourite restaurants on the Coast and a must try as once you go once you will be hooked on their Bugs rolls!!

You know you're somewhere special when all the staff greet you and welcome you with smiles all round. We had a great table location with views of the surf and northward to Surfer's Paradise. A glorious Qld Winter's day set the backdrop perfectly. Service was great, and as newbies to Rick's, they took the time to explain the menu, size portions expected, and did not rush us. The food was superb (we had several entrees and a main of barramundi), followed up with desserts and coffee. A great experience and one that we'd definitely do again. Highly recommend you book way early to get a table - I mean weeks in advance!!

Having been impressed on our last visit a couple of years ago, we were extremely disappointed this time. We were given menus for both the set menu and the a la menu. My husband was happy with everything on the set menu but I was keen to try a few others thing. After deciding what I would have, the waitress (Darcey) informed us that we both had to have either the set menu or the a la carte (no explanation for this reasoning and not advised when menus were offered).
Another waitress (red-haired) spilled quite a bit of my Margarita on the tray and table (bench) as she delivered it. She took it back to the waiters’ station before coming back to clean up the mess. We then watched her go back, wipe over the glass and bring it back to me, with no apology and without having had it topped up (or remade) and the salt having been wiped off.
When Darcey replaced our entree plates she pushed the cutlery and chopsticks that we had been using onto the table before leaving clean plates - no offer was made to replace them so we sat with used cutlery sitting on the table.
Finally, we had just finished our meal, our table had been cleared and as we were finishing the last of our drinks, Darcey came over and proceeded to wipe over our table (navigating around my purse, phone & glasses!) with a blue Chux! We had only been there for an hour but certainly felt then that we were being rushed out of the restaurant.
The food was actually very nice but the dining experience, despite the stunning location, was absolutely not worth the $180 we paid. Waitstaff are obviously encouraged to write their name on the bill when it is presented (I guess this is for allocation of tips). We deliberately did not leave a tip because the overall service was way below the standard you would expect from a restaurant that prides itself on being one of the best on the coast. Staff have either become complacent or are lacking in proper training. Very disappointing - won’t be back.

We always enjoy our Ric Shores. Food wine location however just thought the attention to our table was lacking this . Maybe it was there were too many of us and that was 13.
