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.

Had a great first experience. Took the kids- they loved the animals and playground. It had a great atmosphere and the food was excellent. We will be back again on Sunday!

We ordered our meal at 12.50 and did not receive our meals until after 2pm. It was busy however this is unacceptable especially for a hotel meal.
Very disappointing.

Booked a table online, had a lady say to us once we arrived that we only had 2hrs and were told we should order. I also asked for an outside table in my booking. Was sat inside and told we couldn’t sit outside as they’re booked out months in advance. Which I find hard to believe.
Once the food came out, we all had cold chips and a very average Thai beef salad that definitely wasn’t worth $28.
It’s such a great location and great for families and get togethers but it’s such a shame that your on a timer and told that when you arrive. It defiantly ruined the experience that was for 2 family members birthdays.

Unfortunately we didn't have a great time. My pregnant wife found her $37 steak to be cold and raw in the middle after a few bites. The supervisor tried telling us that it was medium rare and that we should have ordered medium well. Bit insulted after eating medium rare steaks for 20 plus years. We asked for a new meal with the steak cooked properly but instead received the old piece of steak recooked to medium well. As all recooked steaks are it was inedible, tough and rubbery. Would have been much happier with just an apology rather than the denial and food we were re-served.

I live nearby and absolutely love the Sandy. There is always s lovely atmosphere no matter what time we go. Lots of my workmates who live in the sunshine coast frequent the hotel as Well as rave about it.

We were looking forward to tying the famous Sandstone point, but I must say it was mediocre to say the least. The food was nothing special and my fish and chips was only just warm, with the chips looking like scraps off left over plates. I didn’t feel it had any special ambiance and wouldn’t choose to go there again.

We have had some great experiences at this location, however we were really disappointed from the 1st contact waiting to be seated and then when ordering our meal.
The food was great, and location perfect.

Me and my Husband are frequent visitors to Sandstone point however this is the second time we have been seated right next to the childrens play area, therefore whilst dining we had several children running around our table. May I suggest when you have sufficient empty seating perhaps seat guests without children in a different area.

We would recommend Sandstone Pt Hotel, but we do think the Resturant menu prices are a bit higher overall than a lot of other hotels and the chips served with our meals are a poor quality choice.
However it's a nice modern venue with lots of great attractions for families, with great views and open space for the kids to play. But can be a tad noisy if your looking for a quiet meal.
Top makes for the Mooloolaba Prawns!

We frequently have a get together with friends at Sandstone Point hotel and always enjoy the food and the service. It is a meeting point between Brisbane and the Sunshine Coast. During the week it is quieter which is always lovely.

We went to SPH for lunch with family. The food was great, the venue is the best and the level o service was second to none, in particular Amber and Nikita who made sure our time was special. Strongly recommend it to anybody thinking of coming there.

This was to be a special occasion, but was disappointing. Oysters Kilpatrick we ordered were the worst Oysters Kilpatrick ever, probably reheated from yesterday. Turkish bread was very ordinary. Main course seafood tier was better, but still blow par. Noisy even on a Wednesday evening.

We love spending time here and coming for family meals on weekends BUT
the toilets are really substandard and not at all adequate for the amount of people visiting the venue. There are definitely not enough toilets available on busy weekend days. Given the popularity with families, the addition of a parent room would be fantastic. We are no longer comfortable with my husband taking our 2 young daughters to the toilet in the Men’s room as it never feels like a clean or safe environment for small children. This is mostly due to the traffic and sanitary issues, but in particular one incident where a stranger approached our daughter in the toilets. So unfortunately I am always on toilet duty, which I am fine with, but this doesn’t seem like a very ethical nor practical solution.

Booked a table for lunch on a Saturday, pleased I did as it filled up pretty quickly. Venue is very nice and a great location. You choose your food from a menu then go to a counter to order (no table service ordering), go to a separate bar to order any drinks you may want. Food was average 2 out of 4 of enjoyed the meal. Delay in the order coming out together so we waited for the final meal to come out before we started so was cold. Tables are close together and unfortunately has someone next to us who coughed their lungs out the whole meal so we rushed to leave our table as soon as we could.
Outside there was entertainment and a great view. A nice way to spend an afternoon if your not fussy about food and are organised to book.

As a family venue on a weekend we found it exceptional. The hotel had large open areas for the kids to run around safely and we enjoyed the day.
