The venue was lovely.
The issue was that the Tuesday set menu just wasn’t a wow for me in any way.
Stir fry and baked chicken for mains just was underwhelming. This isn’t anything I can’t make at home, when I go to a restaurant like this I expect something I can’t or won’t make at home... if it something as simple as this, it needs to be 💥 mind blowingly amazing.
It wasn’t.
Would I go again? Yes but never again on a Tuesday night.

This is the best restaurant in Townsville, my absolute favorite. The food is phenomenal, the staff are next level in service, and I love being a part of the atmosphere created at Shorehouse. Their feed me menu is divine if you can’t decide from their delicious choices and you will find you have to return to taste everything.

I had 3 tapas and enjoyed 2 of them thoroughly, the third wasn’t to my liking.
The staff were mostly great except one young lady that just dumped items on the table anywhere then leave before we could ask questions. The young an that looked after us was great. I think he finished his shift before we finished our dinner because once the plates were collected no one checked on us for desserts or drinks.
I would still recommend and go again myself. A big plus for having vegan options.

Outstanding modern Australian Asian fusion menu - we took the 'Just Feed Me' option as first timers and were so glad we did. Widely various Australian wine list and the citrus brûlée desert topped it off. We'll be back with our kids, we loved having a classy grown up date night too. Shorehouse does both well. One of the top plates in Townsville and FNQ!

We just love Shorehouse and particularly taking all our out of town friends there for dinner. The ‘Fill me up’ selection is amazing - a taste test of the menu if you like and the table service is excellent.

Great atmosphere, great selection of foods especially GF & DF options. A little disappointed with the waitress, would take finished food plates and not ask if we would like anything else to eat. We then ordered more food, was delivered then we had to ask for more plates. Just some minor things but otherwise awesome afternoon. We will be back :)

The perfect end to a shopping day in Townsville. Took a friend who hadn't been before. Needless to say, she will be back as will I. Food is always fresh, tasty and the vibe is amazing. Shorehouse is becoming a regular eating spot for my husband and me. Love it ♡

Drinks are overpriced and waiter staff are very slow to organise drinks. Would sell a lot more if they weren’t so slow or crazily overpriced

Great food and menu. Service was good, but the venue was quite hot to sit and eat in for summer. I would have preferred the doors closed to keep the Airconditioning inside.
My wine was not great, but the lovely hostess took to wine off our bill at the end.
The thrice cooked rice is to die for- the best rice I’ve ever eaten.

On Tuesday 3.12.19 my wife and I went to shore house to celibate our 14 year wedding anniversary.
It just so happened to be just feed me menu and was absolutely amazing, great food, great value and great service, cant thank everyone enough for the way we where treated form the lovely lady dealing with my annoying phone calls about the food/seating and going to the trouble to bring out our desert with a sparkler and wishing us happy anniversary. was an amazing way celibate cant wait to come back. thanks guys

We have been to shore house now three times, this time we found the staff to be very pushy with ordering quick. Payed for the bottomless water however was not cold. Took quite some time trying to get our waitresses attention ended up asking another for help. Food was great. A bit disappointed that where I had asked to be seated in the reservation was ignored and their where empty seats that we could of sat.

Place has a vibe about it and definitely recommended.
Only two of us and a 'trap' I fell into was to order six dishes at the onset. The waiter did tell us that they will come as the kitchen prepares them and not in any particular order. I now realise that it would be better to order the dishes just a couple at a time, rather than all at once. In this way you can take control of the sequence they will be served at and in an order that suits you, rather than say end up with spicy dishes coming out before milder ones.
The meals came out just as he waiter said they would ie as soon as the kitchen can dispatch them. So we ended up having plates of food piling up in front of us faster than we could eat them. Another reason to order just a couple at a time, and something which the staff are OK with.
This isn't a criticism of their service, but rather a suggestion as to how to get the most enjoyment out of what is an excellent restaurant.

BYO - $15 per bottle corkage is quite expensive
$40 feed me - would be great to include a small dessert, disappointed this was extra. (it's more or less the $55 p/head without dessert and more dishes in the $55 feed me)

I'd recommend Shorehouse to the Queen, any prime minister & Liam Neeson. Food is outstanding and service to match. Great wine list, awesome cocktails and roll me out the door serving sizes. And did I mention the perfect location as well. Thanks gang!

Food amazing and good value, service friendly and fairly timely considering how busy it was. Only issue was that in the back it was very loud. Apart from that great times had and will definitely return
