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.

Thank you "Shorehouse" I booked a table for 6 for birthday celebrations and the service and food was exceptional. This was only the second time I had dined there and just loved it both times, we will definitely be back!!! Keep up the good work guys :-)

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...

We had a lovely night with delicious food. The service was great, as well as the food, and the food came out really quickly which was great when having a toddler with you!

The food was great as always. Couldn’t fault it. However, I think our table was forgotten about as we weren’t even asked for drinks for about 45 mins. Eventually, a new waitress took over our table and she was great.

Service was excellent. Staff clearly knew the menu, were able to advise and suggest options, and took the time to explain. Food came to the table in good time even though the restaurant was fully booked. Food hot, delicious and plentiful. A wonderful and relaxing evening. Only one minus, background noise loud however the eating experience diverted attention away from this.

Storehouse has a lovely ambiance, modern and edgy, yet intimate. Had a lovely birthday dinner on a Wednesday night. Food was lovely and the service was very good. Looking forward to coming back again soon and trying out different dishes.

Only in one course the meat was tough and gristly. Everything else was beautiful. Just too dark to read the menu was the biggest problem. Maybe a small light on the table would have been good.

I love the food but I found the lack of lighting gave me a headache and made it quite difficult to read the menu.

We have eaten several times at tha Shorehouse....welcoming, seating, ordering food very good as usual....
Two things though...
No one took our drink order for quite a while and our food arrived before we had been approached to order drinks. When our drinks arrived one was incorrect.
Secondly ...when our mains arrived they were cold. We mentioned this when paying our bill and were given an apology and a discount. Unfortunately this does not alter the fact that my wife’s 70th birthday dinner was spoiled.

it was a VERY BUSY night and the noise level was uncomfortable for us oldies. The sound just bounces around in there. We did request an outside table for that reason but ended up inside.
Food was really tasty, varied, very morish and totally adequate. We had 3 Just Feed Me serves between 4 of us. Weeknights in future for us. :-)

Everything was great except for the table service. Once the first order was taken there was no further offer for drinks or more food. Eye contact seemed to be avoided in the hope we didn’t ask. I think the staff are very busy so don’t seem to have time to offer a second round of drinks or food. We basically had to wave people down or stop them leaving our table so quickly to order anything else.
