I was met by a very friendly young man who showed me to our table straight away (no waiting which was great), I was offered water whilst I waited for the rest of my group to show up. The food was top notch with some really interesting and flavor some dishes to be had. We had about 5 different dishes that we then shared amongst us. The pistachio dumplings dessert was a stand out, would definitely recommend this one! But all of the dishes we ordered we stand outs really! A real mix of Asian fused with 'every day' used products like potatoes. The place is just lovely, fab view out to the ocean over the strand and we were seated just on the edge of the air conditioned inside area whilst we were still able to appreciate the 'outside' covered area. 10 out of 10 for the food and service. Hats of the to Shaw House as I've been here 3 times now and each time it has been fabulous! Well done to your chefs and front of house staff!

The staff at Shorehouse are exceptional. Every time I go I have found them to be upbeat and positive, knowledgeable and very focused on executing the little things so well. This is also noticeable in the way they all interact with each other too. Food and drinks are also consistently great. My favourite place to dine in Townsville.

We’ve been meaning to go here since it opened and we are sure glad we did. The views from the bar are awesome (and the drinks) and the food was amazing - we love the sharing aspect!!! Probably best was the waitress - she was just so enthusiastic and obviously loved her job ... We will be back soon for sure ... great times

Delicious food and excellent service. Always a delight to dine at Shorehouse. Love the ambience and intimate setting and staff are always friendly and accommodating. The chicken dumplings are to die for, nice kick to the sauce.

Superb night at the Shorehouse recently. As first timers we chose the chef to pick our menu and we weren’t disappointed. 3 entree, 3 mai s and dessert. Would of liked more vegetables with the meat. Meat was delicious. Pick for me was the lamb ribs and the beef, chicken and everything else was delish. Menu a bit pricey but balanced by great service and ambience.

A must place to visit on the Strand in Townsville, staff are always welcoming, food is fabulous & a great variety. I love you can order small or larger portions to share with your friends and choose a glass of wine to match your foods. Keep up the great work Shorehouse

I rated the service last time I visited (July) as outstanding. This time service was completely the opposite. So slow to get drinks and then food service. Last time we were asked repeatedly and we couldn't fault your team they were brilliant. A real shame.

Had a lovely meal again recently bringing visitors to Townsville with us. Lovely staff but there were not enough to service the bookings. Had to chase down drinks all night. Food was fantastic, will be back
Wish you had pure blonde ultra beer

Fantastic spot for a get together with friends. I would recommend late afternoon so you get the benefit of sunset on The Strand. Great choices for all pallets and a substantial drinks menu. Some of the dishes are a little pricey but overall it's good value for money in a sublime setting.

Truly delicious food that you can't get anywhere else in Townsville and romantic, relaxing atmosphere. A slight mixup on our order but was well and truly resolved by the helpful and friendly staff. We couldn't ask for anything better!! Will be returning again soon for the prawn soldiers...
