Only suggestion would be to provide wet wipes or water bowls for finger food. Food was outstanding if sticky.

Have been a few times. The quality of food fluctuates - it was ok this time around. The duck was very fatty and made us both feel a bit unwell. Oxtail and parfait were the stand outs.

Food delicious, the venue is fantastic. The only issue we had was getting our drinks orders delivered. Had to chase up for these. The staff were very friendly and we had a lovely time.

Awesome dinner once again!!
Food was perfect, my friend is gluten & dairy intolerant. The menu has an extremely vast range of these options. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves & would recommend your restaurant in a heart beat.
Thank you!

Food was delicious and great value for money. We were seated outside and it did get a bit warm at times but not enough to really tarnish the night. Service was good overall. Really enjoyed my dining experience!

Overall, it was Poor service. Our group Had to continually wave staff over for more drinks. The Drinks aren't poured to a full nip, tested this theory after drinks tasted weak. We Asked for shots both on the rocks and neat was appalled to see barely a 30ml nip in the glass, on questioning the staff was told" its because our glasses are big". When ordering mains we asked what sides go with the mains chosen, we agreed with what the waitress recommended, but were dissatisfied when the meals came out in 20 min intervals and we couldnt enjoy the sides with the mains. When questioning staff on this they stated "we bring the meals out when they are ready, the menu is designed to be shared". We would have appreciated this being raised when ordering as it was not enjoyable watching each person eat their meal and looking around waiting for the next meal to come out. Not one of us ate our meals at the same time. Would of gladly purchased more drinks if service was up to par. Responses from female manager were somewhat confrontational and not what i would of expected.

Our group of 8 friends, all found food that tantalised their tastebuds - even our fussiest eater!

You can sit by the bar, sit inside in a group or have a cosy date.

The food was good as always but i found the service a bit lacking. The reluctance to remove the soiled placemats and bits of crab on the table stunned us. We actually had to ask for them to clean the table and they did not seem to think it was necessary?!?!? We still had dessert coming and did not wish to sit with food remains on the table. Also, after the table was cleaned, no replacement placemats were given so the remainder of the meal was eaten on the bare table. Odd and very disappointing. Just a lack of an overall pleasant experience. Also, the level that the music was on was a bit too loud for comfortable conversation. It became a feature rather than a lovely background accompaniment to a pleasant meal.

Been twice now and I love it. Good came out pretty well timed, however, the person who ordered the Tofu did seem to wait a very long time for her meal, and it did feel very odd eating while she was waiting and being completely finished our meals for a good 20 minutes before her meal came out.

Hadn’t taken my partner on a date in 4 weeks and your restaurant topped it off nicely. Was an amazing atmosphere, food was amazing (we couldn’t finish it all) and the customer service was great. Was awesome that we got to take home what we couldn’t eat.

Wonderful service - on time meals and fast at-your- table drink service. The staff were very friendly with smiles all around. Ambience is very romantic, and also chill for afternoon drinks. The best restaurant in Townsville, hands down!

Didn’t realise it was fees your Tuesday. Would of definitely come another night if we knew prior. Service needs an overhaul. Wasnt asked once how the meals were! Not even when paying! Would of bought dessert if you bothered to come back and take the order after being given a desert menu. Would of drank the bar empty too if wait staff would have been bothered to ask if we wanted more drinks!

The entree’s were very nice. The beef in the main was so tough I couldn’t get a fork into it and no knife is provided with the table setting. The waitress was very friendly and polite, however we had to ask for water. No salt or pepper was available, it had to be asked for. I am still waiting for the dessert menu. Doubt that I would go back. Such a pity as the atmosphere is very nice.

Shorehouse is always amazing and always worth a visit for amazing and creative food. We love the sharing aspect of it all. The only damper (literally) was the rain got in from a small gap between the outdoor seatings sail and the roof. Surely we thought there would be some sort of blind that could be lowered but alas no. However we were happy to wait out the worst of it and could handle the light sprays. Honestly once the food arrived you didn't even notice. Service was a bit of an issue as it was hard to get someone's attention but overall wonderful night, great food, would reccomend willingly.
