Great food and service. We had the just feed me and was very good value if you want to try a range of things. Although if you want less meat maybe specify as its very meat dominated if you dont.

Most of the dishes we chose were lovely, and Shorehouse has a really nice atmosphere on the deck. Unfortunately, however, there was only one available booking time for the two dates my visiting friends were still in Townsville, so our only option was an early sitting on Wednesday. The disadvantage of this was that, with all of the meals being presented to us rapidly after ordering, we felt rushed. I do understand that the chefs want to be ready for other diners arriving later, but it made us feel like we were hurried out, instead of continuing to enjoy the setting and food at a relaxed pace.
Should we have had a show to go to this may have been an advantage, but not in our case.

Went on a Monday, so it was a set menu which took the hard task of what to order out. The menu was great and the food was delicious.

This is the place to go if you want to have a quality restaurant experience. So glad I chose Shorehouse to meet up with special friends. It never disappoints but it was so good to hear our friends were thoroughly impressed. The "Feed Me" is our favourite but the menu has a variety of exquisite temptations. Make sure you book ahead as this is a very popular place.

As a vegetarian, I find this lovely restaurant an excellent option for those with a refined palate and conscious of consuming top notch produce. The wine list is also exquisite and thoughtful in appropriately pairing with food. The ambience is possibly the nicest I’ve experienced along the NQ coast rivalling Palm Cove.
All in all, a truly gorgeous restaurant.

This would be our 6th or 7th visit in the last 12months and experienced a very large difference to previous visits. The wait staff seemed to be more focused on clearing and setting tables, than the patrons (where multiple tables had to ask to order drinks or food) - however when the staff did actually speak to the patrons, they were extremely professional and lovely. Everything else was outstanding as usual, however the customer service was definitely lacking this time. Hoping this was just a once off, as we have experience nothing but 5 star visits in the past.

We arrived to be seated on time and cocktails followed very shortly, from a well-stocked and well designed island bar on the verandah.
Atmosphere and vibe was upbeat with a fantastic cross-section of clients.
Suggested JUST FEED ME menu selection was ideal, and came in the form of a grazing tapas style meal.
The beef cheeks were sensational.
All wait staff wee very attentive; Andrea the Duty Manager should be very proud of her team.
It all culminated in a very special Anniversary night for us.
Sincere thanks to all the team at Shorehouse.
