Had to go to the bar to get service or call waiters over. Very uninterested despite there only being a few tables of people in the entire venue

Sorry we missed the mark Matt, I assure that you should not have had to go to the bar and we apologise if this happened, I hope you can give us another chance.

Went on a Thursday night and had one of the tall tables near the bar and outside.
Staff were really friendly and communicated what we needed to know well.
Great food and music. We will definitely be back for more.
Thank you!

Everything was great thank you. Only thing i would say that is slightly negative was just the music act playing at the time were very loud. To the point it was difficult to talk/hear each other. They sounded great, but just a little to loud.

The staff and service were great, the food was fair, there were 4 adults, one had the Seafood Jambalaya , which tasted good but seemed to be missing the salmon, barramundi and squid, the prawns also needed to be shelled. Another had the wood fired king prawn salad, once again they needed to be shelled and were overcooked (tough), the other two had a meat platter to share (Play the Field), the meat was very fatty and only one potato to share, not realyy good enough for $69. Overall a fair meal

Fantastic experience.
The food was exceptional and reasonably priced, however the most notably impressive feature of the venue was the staff; faultless.

My meal was tasty (lamb) however not everyone in our group enjoyed their meal. Our waitress gave good service. Unfortunately the bar service was not great. Two separate rounds of drinks were forgotten- we did receive drinks eventually and were not charged for these.
We were celebrating a birthday. So noisy we gave up trying to talk to each other. I realise this is due to flooring etc but it does make it difficult to hold a conversation.
We did enjoy our evening but left early to go elsewhere for more drinks.

We have been to the Dock a number of times, for drinks, nibbles and meals. We honestly can’t recommend this place highly enough. Food is amazing especially the pork tacos and chicken tenders.
The cocktails are always spot on and the service is next to none. I had my birthday there on Friday night and they had live music. We have taken our kids there and it’s kid friendly too. We have nothing but good things to say about the dock at Mooloolaba 👏🏼

Great location but very mediocre in terms of quality & service. Two meals were OK whilst two were poor. BBQ ribs dried out - obviously just reheated. Had to wait for fourth meal so all others cold
At no time did staff ask if all ok nor did they come back to see if dessert or coffee was wanted. Price would be ok if service & quality measured up. Disappointed as e brought interstate guests. Won’t be going back.

First time at this restaurant. Busy Saturday lunch time and carparking was non-existent, had to park on the streets of Mooloolaba about 5-10 mins away. I had booked a table for 6 people. When we arrived we waited at the sign that said "please wait to be seated", several staff walked past but did not look at us. After a minute the bar tender came over and asked if we wanted help, I told him we had a booking, he checked their system then pointed towards the table area and said "its the last table on the left" and left us to make our own way. This was disappointing. Menu selection was pretty good, not the cheapest around though. Under the 'Small' section of the menu we had Southern Fried Chicken Tenders for $11 and Zucchini Fritters for $16 - both were large serves and adequate for a main meal. The Chicken Tenders were quite large but served (piled up) on a very small rectangular plate and most of it fell off onto the table when trying to cut it. The Zucchini fritters were a bit dry but the mayo helped. Other meals we had were the The Chicken Burger for $23, reports were it was pretty good, Barramundi $30 was very nice although the salad was mainly leaves and drowned in dressing. I had the Grilled Lamb Rump at $32 which was nice and tender although I could not taste any Rosemary or Garlic. I thought the chorizo was an odd addition and didn't go with the other ingredients, I left it on the plate. Would I go back, yes probably, but in the evening rather than battle for a carpark with the Sea Life tourist crowd during the day.
