    Food was excellent. One of the waiters was clumsy and spilled water over my partner. The waiter laughed it off. I thought it was a little rude to laugh it off. She did apologise but it didn't seem sincere.

    This was our first time visiting Shorehouse and it was amazing. We will be back. The only down side is that once all our food was delivered not a single server came to our table again. We wanted to order more food and drinks. But ended up leaving instead.

    The ‘Just Feed Me’ dining option is the way to go. You get a little bit of all the menu favourites and you don’t leave feeling hungry. Food is amazing. Was a bit noisy inside and our drinks waiter was a little scarce although it was a busy Saturday night. Air con works great for the NQ heat.

    Outside dining a must if you can score a spot on the deck to enjoy the magic Townsville winter. Tasty food; Get the beef cheeks and the crispy eggplant, our faves! Lots of friendly helpful servers however cocktails were a bit slow coming to the table. Looking forward to next time.

    Very disappointed, after being in hospitality for over 30 years we were pushed and hustled to order and to hurry up. We were seated 20 mins late from our booking and then was told to order asap as the kitchen wanted to close, it was just after 9pm. After ordering all our meals they all came at once and it was hard to enjoy the cusine. We discussed this with the manager and were instantly dismissed and not valued. If something is happening or you can not accommodate the booking don’t take it, or at least have better customer service to smooth the issue over.

    It’d be nice to see a menu change. Also when ordering sides it’d be nice for them to not come out last after all the meals. Wine & service was great. Beef cheeks always amazing. Feed me seems to be the same choices every time we go. Maybe we go the same day each time🤷🏽‍♀️

    Food was excellent as always. However the table service was average Our waiter checked in maybe once during our entire time there. Us having to flag someone down every time for drinks or other. We ordered dessert and sat waiting 40min for a piece of cake to arrive. We couldn't wait any longer and left without it.

    The food was fantastic but the service was quite poor. Our waitress ‘forgot’ to (she said this to us too) take our order after we had waited for 35mins. We were not offered more drinks or checked on at all through the night, only if we caught the waiter’s attention which was harder to do than usual. Dessert was ordered after waiting 20+ minutes to catch someone’s eye, and then it never came out. We had to leave by that point to go meet other people elsewhere so we missed out on dessert. The waiter was kind enough to take the amount off our bill.

    After our first share plate, we waited almost twenty mins to be asked if we wanted to order more food, despite the empty plate on our table. The staff member responsible for our area was setting a vacant table for a later reservation instead of serving the people already there. After ordering our final two dishes, the food arrived and we were immediately told we had 5mins to vacant our table / move to the bar as there was another reservation after us. This should have been mentioned at the time of ordering, as we would not have ordered given we needed it rush. The beef cheeks were significantly smaller than all other times we have eaten at the restaurant.

    Thank you for the lovely food and fantastic service. The menu provided for a wide range of taste with an excellent wine list. Staff were very friendly and accomodating when we asked for slight variations. one of our party was Coeliac and due to the variety of meals offered there was no difficulity in finding suitable food.

    Vegan options need some attention. Chick pea curry lacked flavour and was drown in coconut milk. The eggplant battered sticks were below par again lacking flavour. There is so much that can be done with vegetables it was slightly disappointing. The hit was the vegan bao. This was truly sensational. It ticked all the boxes. Nutritionists are generally advocating less meat in our diets. Overall it was an enjoyable experience. I hope this feedback is of benefit to you.
