We ate dinner here on Monday night. We arrived at 7.30 and were told our meals would be quick as we were the last booking. We waited 50 minutes! After half an hour I asked the waitress where our drinks were. She then told me she’d forgotten to place our order. It then took another 20 minutes before anything arrived. Given that we paid $10! Yes $10 for some bread, the least they could have done was given us this on the house. Poor,poor service. Very badly managed and organised. We won’t be going back.

Two people- we enjoyed a glass of wine and a main meal . After that we were ignored by the staff (a male and a female) who preferred to chat to each other. We were not offered the dessert menu or coffee.
Not a good reflection on the hotel!

The service and friendliness of the staff was outstanding. The only thing that disappointed me was when my main meal arrived and was stone cold. The staff bent over backwards to remedy the situation.

Fish of the day was the best dish, my husband would not stop talked about it. The vegie dish called "From the Farm" was the winner for me

Was really disappointed with the venue and meal it’s self. Didn’t think you could ruin a chicken Parma but evidently you can! No flavour to the meal, couldn’t taste the ham or tomato sauce. The aoli had been sitting on our plates well before the meal was served as it had a skin on it. The slaw that was served with it was just sliced cabbage no dressing. Our reservation was at 7.30 we had left by 8 due to poor food didnt want to get desert I case that was bad too!

Our group loved the great food and will return again in summer only.
The experience was somewhat diminished by the icy gale when doors are opened.

We were sat next to the fire which was great, but automatic door kept opening which led to cold draft entering the restaurant every time person enters :(

They had packed in the tables, and the service as a result was poor. The food was pretty good, but not special. I think they need to provide a more considerate experience for customers.

Oversauced duck on uncooked quinoa.
My son enjoyed the burger.
The chicken Parma was disapponting and the coleslaw bitter.

Double jackpot, allocated a table adjacent to the toilets and the automatic doors. Blasted by a freezing cold wind every time the inner door opened because the outer door is left open. Constant stream of traffic in and around our table by people wanting to relieve themselves which triggered the doors. Asked to be moved out of the draught only to be offered another with the same problem.

Two excellently produced meals were presented to us by friendly staff. The seafood tagliatelle was made with fresh seafood and tasted delicious served with a selection of home made rolls, oil and dukkah. The other meal, the burger was a large and thick patty served with chunky, crispy chips. Both cooked to perfection. The only reason I didn’t give five stars for ambiance was because when the door opened the cold air came in. But it was a very cold evening when we dined. I missed the Oyster special as I didn’t see the special menu nor was it pointed out, but honestly glad as I wouldn’t have had any room.

I was slightly disappointed as I expected it to be more a restaurant rather than the hotel bistro, the food was exceptional however and we had a enjoyable evening.

No vegan options and did not even attempt to assist with an option from the kitchen. Told the menu is the menu and that’s it.
Failed to deduct “free drink” deal with the parma.
On the 9/7 we arttended for a drink only. When we returned the house champagne because it was flat, the bar tender was great about it but manager made us feel like it was our fault and in the end my wife was apologising.
Great food but service very ordinary.

My daughter and I had the pleasure of dining at The Deck at Flinders Hotel earlier in the week, and we had a fabulous time! The meals were outstanding! We had the calamari to start and then I had the Roasted Barramundi and she had the Beef Cheeks. Both meals were absolutely devine! It's a lovely restaurant and with the roaring fire, it was nice and cosy. The staff were very informative and also very attentive. We thoroughly enjoyed our evening. Many Thanks to the Staff and the Chefs at The Deck! Next time we are in Flinders, we will definitely return.

The staff at The Dock are very friendly and the food that we ordered was very tasty, but the staff lack a lot of attention to detail and made many mistakes both during our service and the service of other tables while we were seated for dinner (e.g. two groups of two were walked past and ignored while waiting for a table, another table with a broken wine class wasn't noticed by staff for a considerable amount of time, some of the drinks on our table had to be asked for a second time while bar staff were cleaning glasses and sorting cutlery). There is a lot of potential for service here to be amazing, but I would only recommend this restaurant if you don't mind waiting for, well, anything to happen here.
