The Courthouse Restaurant delivers a superb meal every time! On this last visit there, my friend and I were seated in the Cell Block, which has so much history attached to it. This is a great seating location if you are hoping for more privacy. Winter time it is even better with its crackling open fire! 🔥 I look forward to dining there again soon.

Charming and unforgetable this place will always bring you back. It is a must when at least once in your lifetime to step back in time and see what service, history and fine dinning is all about on the Bay with views of the ocean. Take those that are closest to your heart and make memories here, they will cherish you for it.

This restaurant is absolutely perfect for any occasion at any time. We have never had a bad experience here. The food is always served quickly and looking amazing on the plate. The staff are always so courteous and efficient and we are never left waiting for anything - even our water is filled constantly. I cannot fault this restaurant in any way at all but can only praise everything about the entire restaurant.

The menu may not change too often but you can guarantee the food will consistently be to the highest standard, cooked to perfection and served by attentive, friendly staff. The menu has something for everyone whether the seafood lover or special diets like gluten free or vegan.

Simply stunning. Took my mum there for her 60th and we loved it. Food, service, portion, atmosphere and price. Amazing. Great local restaurant to rival the big city restaurants. The best in the Redlands.

Great food for our 20th wedding anniversary. I had the set menu which was great value for $55 probably the dessert was my least favourite. My husband choose off the main menu and enjoyed his choices of pork belly and the lamb rack and with a great cheese cake to end.
Service from the young wait staff was good not intrusive and the right level of engagement. A piano was playing in the background. It was a good local choice for us, thanks courthouse!

For a special occasion, this restaurant is lovely for the atmosphere and sheer history of the place. The main courses were very good, but we were disappointed in the oysters kilpatrick. There was far too much bacon which resulted in the oysters not being cooked properly. Also for the cost of them, the oysters were very small in size.
We did however have a lovely lunch (with a view) to catch up with dear friends.

The Courthouse restaurant is conveniently located just outside of Cleveland and is absolute waterfront. The building dates back into the 1800s and has a great history. There are plenty of choices between outside/waterfront, inside main dining or inside with private rooms. The food is sensational, but probably on the expensive side. We had a $100 voucher and the bill just exceeded this for a garlic bread, 2 mains and 2 non-alcoholic drinks. However, it is a lovely location and certainly something a cut above. It would be a great place for a romantic date.
