Considering the building in which this business is situated, it is very sterile. Inside a pianist which was a nice touch however as soon as you got outside you sat in silence. The order was wrong but quickly fixed. The staff were knowledgeable and courteous. Good service.

We are regular visitors to the Courthouse for dinner. Unfortunately the quality of the food last Saturday was very disappointing. The Fillet Mignon was only average , normally a better quality meat and the red wine jus had no flavour at all.
The pan seared Atlantic salmon was definitely not pan seared more like it was broiled and the sauce was an insipid watery fluid that had the vegetables were swimming in. Hardly any flavour.
Presentation and sevice was excellent as usual but overall a disappointment especially as we invited friends for dinner as well. As they had never been before they felt they cannot comment.

The Courthouse has excellent service, lovely location but not a lot of ambience, a little dated maybe but the food was excellent, very tasty and fresh. Overall we had a very enjoyable night and would return and recommend the Courthouse.

I have been there 5 times and the food every time was absolutely full of flavour. I would suggest though that the wine list is in need of some research .
I will continue to visit regularly. Perhaps they will consider some ch ages to the wine list .

Very good food and excellent service from the staff. Lovely ambience. Only negative was being placed right next to a couple who were talking quite loudly and at the time of our arrival there was no-one else in restaurant. Overall good and would go back again.

The portions were slightly on the small side but adequate. Veges were cooked to perfection.The porterhouse and salmon were cooked well but perhaps lacked that extra ‘zest’. The ambiance was fantastic.

Fantastic meal in a lovely location. I had the barramundi with a macadamia nut crust and it was delicious. The other guests also raved about their choices. Waitresses were lovely and very attentive. We sat outside and it was a such a relaxed setting with the fairy lights shining and enjoying the peacefulness of the bay. A definite do again restaurant for a special occasion.

Thanks for being such a beautiful venue for my parents 50th wedding anniversary lunch. It suited our whole family from 3 to 73 years old, with excellent food and a lovely view. Our waitress was very kind and understanding of our family’s needs. Perfect lunch out

Lovely venue if you actually want to enjoy your food and the company of those you are dining with. The staff are wonderful and the courthouse has a simple elegance that doesn’t require black tie but nonetheless makes you feel special.

We enjoyed an absolutely amazing lunch at The Courthouse yesterday. The service by Piper and Taylor was outstanding. Nothing was too much for them. The food served was absolutely delicious and such good value for money. Our definite go to restaurant when anywhere near the Bay.

A great night as usual. There only thing I can pick on and maybe it's just me, I don't understand the onion rings with fillet mignon. The meat was cooked to perfection but the onion rings just don't do it for me.
