Sandstone Point Hotel, just a short drive north from Brisbane, offers a beautiful location at which to enjoy contemporary, globally-inspired meals with something delicious for every type of taste. The chargrilled garlic prawn skewers with lemon mayonnaise and the slow-cooked chili pork belly with shaved apple and watercress make sharable and taste bud-warming starters. Some of Sandstone Point Hotel Ôs specialty mains include the grilled chicken supreme wrapped in prosciutto and stuffed with creamy brie, the angus striploin steak slathered in creamy garlic sauce and the sand crab and scallop mousse lasagna. More casual fare, such as the Point slider plate with a barbecue pulled pork, barbecue chicken, beef with horseradish mayo and brie and avocado sliders and the spiced lamb pizza with cucumber, mint and spinach yogurt, are also popular.

Sandstone Point Hotel also has a full kids' menu, making it an excellent dining choice for the whole family.

Nice restaurant with good food. Can get a little noisy. Most nights you need to book to get a table.

This was the third time I’ve been & this time I went with my husband & daughter & two grandchildren.....our booking was at 2:00pm, so maybe that’s why the food wasn’t as good as before. My Chicken Parmigiana was very ordinary & seemed like it had been cooked for a long time as it was dry & a bit burnt, the salad was mainly lettuce with one piece of cucumber & a tiny tomato cut in half. The chips were beautiful. The 2 steak sandwiches had a little piece of dried steak & salad on a bread roll that was bigger than the steak & they said their chips were not hot at all. The granddaughters pizzas were ok but they didn’t eat it all. The atmosphere was incredible & the girls had good fun in the play area. We spent just over $130 & thought it was too expensive. I bought a bottle of Diet Coke & that cost me $4.70....much too dear, especially when we are pensioners. I know it must cost you a lot to run a beautiful place like that, so it’s such a shame we can’t afford to come back for awhile. Thank you for listening. 🌹🌹

It was very hot in the restaurant. No air conditioning. Tables are packed in, no social distancing and you can hear the people talking on the next table. Thought the food was on the expensive side for a pub.

Two meals 2 nights in a row, both very average and with service that is generally disinterested and like they are doing you a favour. Great venue, location is awesome for the kids. More friendly service and food that is prepared with a bit more love and it would be unbeatable. Happy to recommend for ambience and overall venue, but caveat being to set expectations for food low

Entry was a debacle. We were told there was another booking of our table one hour after hours and yet I counted five empty tables near us when we left.
We won’t be rushing back any time soon

Thank you for taking the time to send through your feedback, All of our table assignments are done by our superstar restaurant team, you may have been been on a larger table that was required for the following booking hence the vacant smaller tables Our entry system is difficult at the moment given the restrictions in place, we are constantly working to make the process as simple as possible whilst still working within the current guidelines Kind regards, Management

Lovely venue. Decorated beautifully with a certain charm. Food took a while to come out but taste was amazing! Unfortunately, $12 bread and dips came out with 3 dips but only 2 very tiny pieces of bread to go with it....and I mean TINY! Not worth the money at all! For some reason my steak was served with a dish of salad dressing instead of gravy...weird! We had a main each - a salmon and a steak - both tasted delicious, steak cooked perfectly!

Hi OliviaM! Thank you for the kind words about our unique venue. I'm sorry to hear about the quantity of your breads for the platter, there must have been a mistake on our end and I deeply apologise about that. I have passed the feedback about the bread and dips as well as the sauce issue onto our team and will ensure further attention is given in the future.

Beautiful location, have been previously and thoroughly enjoyed. Unfortunately, duty manager Matthew’s service on the evening was anything but welcoming and hospitable. Was really looking forward to a special Christmas Eve dining experience with family and friends, but very disappointed by Matthew’s lack of hospitality demonstrated to our party.

The quality of the side salad was extremely poor. A couple of pieces of very tired looking lettuce, a few strands of onion, one very small piece of tomato drowned in dressing was very disappointing.
