Absolutely loved Rick Shores.
Such a beautiful setting, sitting right on the ocean, it doesn't get any better than that.
The staff were amazing, so attentive.
The food was fabulous such beautiful flavours, I could not fault this restaurant at .
It was our 36th wedding anniversay and we wanted to go somewhere special, we certainly went to the right restaurant and will be going back for our 37th anniversary

The fixed menu is hit and miss, with the desert being particularly awful. There should be some form of choice. Until this changes or the normal menu comes back, I won't return or recommend.

Many People have recommended Rick Shores. Our group of friends were quiet disappointed with that restaurant. To start with, aircon & fan was blowing towards us like crazy. Set menu was hit & miss, can only highlight their signature rolls.

Saying that, it was enough food for us, and service was good! But I won’t return back.

Great food, service and atmosphere. Ordered the set menu - the red curry was a touch too spicy for my liking but that's the only thing I can fault. Highly recommended and I cant wait to go again!

Had a great lunch for our anniversary. Book early to get a good table down on the window. Still set menu only which was nice but I look forward to coming again when the menu is back to a la carte. Thanks

As a regular diner at Rick Shores we were extremely disappointed with the level of service. We know Rick Shores is better than that and the regular staff appeared absent. The floor staff on duty with the exception of two young female staff members were outrageously bad......I hope for the sake of Rick Shores that the floor staff on duty that night either receive further training or find another vocation

Scored a table at the front so the view was amazing. The service was great - not over the top just the right amount of checking in to fill Drinks etc. And the food OMG - it was a set menu and felt like it was never going to end! Every dish was delicious. Highly recommended

When it comes to location, rivals Cafe Sydney (and food) and Doyle’s(but better food). When the weather turns it on. It’s just the best and the staff are amazing!

Great ambience, good food and attentive waiter made for a pleasant lunch. Couple of the courses were outstanding - bug brioche, and dumpling were standouts. It would be good to have more wine by the glass options - the only pinot noir by the glass was not great. Service was very good.

We were sceptical about a set menu before we came but loved every mouthful. We have been many times before and eaten a la carte. Had the best table in the house just for us two. It was overcast but then the clouds parted and the sun shone through in all its glory.
Service as usual was infallible. Thank you once again. Rickshores.

Rick Shores offered a set dinner menu when we visited. Serves were appetising and generous. The staff were great, moving us to a prime table that became available soon after we had been seated in a less desirable location. The Asian inspired menu featured the specialty Moreton Bay Bug Roll - which was absolutely delicious. So nice when the food lives up to such an epic location - it doesn't get much more beachfront than this. Highly recommend.

Great food and atmosphere, service was very attentive. Only minor issue was that it is set-menu only in the dining room. Would have been nice to know that at or prior to placing our booking.

Love The bug burger and mini pork bun(ciaolongbao)! the fried bug inside the burger was so Juicy and tender but at the same time crispy outside, it made a perfect combination with sauce and bread.

My fourth time at Rick Shores
the banquet is excellent and so are the staff
what made it special was a table by the window at the ocean end
realise you cant book specific tables but it makes such a difference but it makes such a difference

Wonderful dining experience at Rick Shores. There's not a bad seat in the house and i loved the concrete architecture, never seen form work like that before. The lunch was incredible value for $89, so much food and each course had so much flavour and looked beautiful, it was food art.

absolutely enjoyed our experience at Rick Shores. Only negative only having tap beers and as my husband is an old hotelier he was not impressed with taste and smell of his glass of beer. I would have liked my Expresso Martini in a martini or cocktail glass not a champagne saucer but it was a wonderful taste.
