Food was very nice, it is expensive but fresh and good quality. We where left a bit long after seated until someone took drinks orders then again for food order. Staff apologised. We took family who where visiting from Brisbane and they enjoyed the whole experience. Turmeric Potatoes where very nice. I would recommend this restaurant and will go again.

A really nice evening out. Some dishes were cold when I expected hot. Some dishes are over priced for what they were, avacado and tomatoe tacos, but some dishes were great value.

Very good food and excellent service. Not a huge menu but enough choices to make most diners very happy. The only negative is that the menu is very Asian focused and therefore most of the dishes have chilli to some level with little to no scope to adjust the chillies. I love chilli but for those that cannot eat spicy food, it leaves very few choices.

Amazing food and the service was beautiful. The staff were already smiling, they weren’t pushy and if the weren’t sure of ingredients they asked rather than BS and flounder. We are definitely coming back. An absolute hidden gem on The Strand.

We don't have many good restaurants in Townsville but Shorehouse on the Strand is always of a very high standard both in delicious food and friendly competent staff.
We just keep going back to this excellent restaurant.

Lovely food, atmosphere and service! Great place for dinner with friends and it was a great place to visit as our first meal together post-lockdown. Cocktails were lovely too. Only downside was that there were quite a few flies around our table even though we were sat indoors, but I don't know what can be done about this.

The food and atmosphere were, as always, very good. The Maitre D on this particular evening was rather arrogant, impatient and unpleasant; which was a shame and really "let the side down", as the rest of the staff were efficient, friendly and thoroughly pleasant, as usual. We enjoyed our evening and the restaurant remains a favourite.

Amazing, amazing, amazing! I took my boyfriend here for his birthday and we were blown away by everything! The cherry-on-top was the sparkler they lit and bought out with our deserts for him. Will definitely go back again!

Food delicious as always! Fresh and full of flavour. The restaurant was spaced out but busy. The wait staff were very helpful and knowledgeable about the food. They were accommodating with my disability as i cant chew and must use a straw. They helped me pick suitable foods. I dont eat out often as its too stressful, but they made me feel very welcome and i will definitely be back

Was disappointed we didn't have a water view as its a main factors for us. We ordered the feed me, which changed 3 times. The omelet was substituted for the prawn soldiers, which tasted like prawn toast. Dumpling was a little dry on top. The main was great, the chicken was perfect and the beef cheeks yummy. Dessert took a while to come out and was ok.
The wine we ordered also wasn't available but the bottle we had was nice. Next time we will just order off the menu to try other things. We love the Shorehouse and grateful they are open.
