Divine food, tasty coctails, staff very friendly (especially those making the coctails) - staff delivering food not as approachable.

Service is always prompt,I’d say very efficient even. No long wait after ordering to receive first plate of food, drinks kept topped up. Inside can b a little noisy if u suffer poor hearing or tone deafness but it still tolerable for me. Nice to sit at the front bar overlooking the strand and ocean and to have a few drinks before settling at the table. Pre Booking is essential as they r very popular

We really enjoy coming to Shorehouse for special occasions and love the Set Menu on Monday. It has always been excellent, but this visit, the chicken curry was very average in comparison to the other meals we have had in the past. Not bad by any stretch.

Food was very nice. Sides came out right at the end of the meal, which is slightly frustrating. We were seated beside a very large and noisy group.

Saturday night, pretty busy, but food came out quickly. Absolutely fantastic. This is one of Townsville’s best places to dine out.

The just feed me menu is terrific and the serving sizes very generous. Great selection of drinks, and beautiful cocktails.

This is how tappas should be.

Food was delicious although the servings were small given the high prices. My $9 glass of wine was barely a quarter of a glass - only 3 mouthfuls.
Staff were warm and friendly.

Food, view and atmosphere were amazing. It did take 30mins for someone to serve us once seated (this was just to take our drink order and I had to go ask to be served). But once we were finally served every thing was fantastic. Food didn't take long and came out one after the other.
Was a really nice night.

Very tasty tapas - we had the chefs choice on this occasion and have had it previously as well as other menu choices and loved them! I also enjoy the cocktails as they have some twists on the original/standard cocktails.

Absolutely exquisite flavours. I went with my husband and father and we ordered 6 dishes to share for lunch. Every plate had an amazing flavour profile. If I had room I'd had eaten another serve of everything. Can't wait to go back and try another selection of dishes.

Waitress was fantastic and helpful, food was amazing, we had "Feed Me" and it was plentiful, so much food. Cocktails were delicious. Only small negative, after desert was served, we couldn't find wait staff to serve is more drinks.

We got the "feed me" option which was excellent value, with a great variety of delicious food, and the added fun of not knowing what you will be getting. Highly recommend.

Food always great. Service inconsistent. Some staff great, others make you feel like they are doing you a favour serving you. The cashier even shouted at one of our guests. Drinks services always very slow.

Always has been a fantastic experience for us and this time was no different. The only very small critic was type music played was a little out of place for the ambiance and the fizzy water is not fizzy - and so would probably best be not served at all. All minor stuff and hope this is viewed as semi positive (but honest) feed back for you guys to keep the restaurant tuned up.
We love what you do, so keep it up - which is our favourite place to dine !

We were dining for a birthday however unfortunately had to wait half an hour past our booking time for our table. However, the staff were extremely apologetic and empathetic. They did advise the party before us that there was a booking waiting so it’s not the staffs fault we had to wait. I would suggest that diners are reminded when they are seated that their booking is until x time (which does happen at other busy restaurants that have scheduled sittings). We were also given an extra desert for someone who didn’t order Just Feed Me which was very considerate. There was one staff member who wasn’t overly friendly, put water bottles down very hard on the table without saying anything and dragged furniture around very loudly- perhaps he was new. All other staff were super efficient and friendly. Th food was, as always, amazing and faultless. Every other experience we have had at Shorehouse I could not fault at all; despite this being our least pleasurable overall it was still pretty great.
