Amazing taste food. We had the sample menu for two and it was delicious (beef cheek to die for). Top service across the board from wait staff to bar staff. We will definitely be going back more regularly 😀

The food was outstanding at the Shorehouse and the service was great. But the noise level was too high for an intimate evening with my wife. It was obvious that everyone was having a good time but I couldn’t hear very well as I have industrial deafness.

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 ♡
