The Dock Mooloolaba
Kitchen open until 10pm, Supper menu available until 11pm - Bar open until midnight
Excellent food and service. Great location for an early father's day meal. Everyone who served us was fantastic. The food was delicious.
Our food came out cold so wasn't too impressed with that.
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.
LOVE LOVE LOVE!! Came up to the Sunny Coast for a holiday and went here for dinner on our final night. The food, service EVERYTHING was phenomenal!!
Thank you so much for your feedback Brianna. We work hard to make people enjoy our venue and it's always amazing to hear this kind of feedback. Regards Jaime
Unfortunately the 12:30 lunch booking was a comedy of errors from the moment we walked in ... our reserved table 'given' to someone else ... took 20 minutes to get a table.... drinks were quick (thank you) ; food was ordered (it is now 1:30pm) .... watched 3 tables get seated and meals served .... waited, waited ...and waited :(
Asked where our three small basic meals had gone - ummm not sure. The poor waitress said the chef then 'bit her head off!' Gee - it was not her fault the order got lost! should not shoot the messenger.
A male manager came and apologised for the multiple errors with a complimentary bottle of wine (thank you) .
The food was lovely (we all agree to that). it just was a long time coming :(
Lastly ... I know we did not spend hundreds of dollars at the venue but REALLY! is there ANY need to drag furniture around on the concrete floor around us ... we got the hint and left!
We are small fish in your ocean ... and won't be back if this is how we are treated as patrons.
Dear costumer: We very clearly remember this day since it was one of the most uncomfortable situations we have encountered. we love all our costumers and don't make differences base on their expenses. I would like to clarify that we did not give a table away, someone sat on it and refused to move making the whole experience extremely confronting for our team. I hope that all the previous times you have visited and enjoy our venue outshine this experience. kind regards Jaime manager on the day
The Tapas menu contains too many deep fried items and not enough other options.
Ran to book and message was to book online. Booked fine dining online and ... ??? Didn’t happen. Meal was tasteless, had the meat platter and steak. Platter was super smoked with no flavour. Steak was also tasteless. Booked based on reviews as was last night in Mooloolaba with family. Just so disappointed. Not sure why I ticked the fine dining box ?
Hi Deb: We are sorry you didn't enjoy our food, we are quite proud of the food we serve and will definitely look into why this happened to you. In terms of the fine dinning, we are not a fine dinning restaurant and we are not sure why there would be an option on open table for that, we are looking into that. Kind regards The Dock team
Great spot on the water in the attractive wharf area. The food was lovely, however there was live music that was so loud it went through you and made conversation difficult. I would go again but only if there was not live music.
Beautiful decor and friendly staff. Good menu choices and great beer selection.
Nice food. A little cool on the non-meat servings (ie potato was microwaved and other foods were cool that would normally be warm). Food is served fast; service quite good. Decent prices and nice vibe.
Made a booking on line but when arrived no table was ready.
Incorrect entrée came out.
Daily special was over salted and couldn't be finished.
Chips were very oily and not pleasant.
Fish was overly strong and batter although appeared crispy on the outside was actually soggy inside.
Staff member broke glass and even after two different people attempted to clean it up there was still glass on the floor.
Ordered a cappucino but unable to have it as they had NO milk??? 2pm on a Sunday and you run out of milk?
We had a fantastic evening at The Dock. The staff were wonderful and the food was delicious! Great atmosphere and setup. The only slight thing, it was a little cool. Take a cardigan and you’ll have a terrific night.
We booked a table online and got a call 5min later to inform us that they are totally booked out and it was an error on the side. However we are most welcome to sit at the bar near the rest rooms... we did take that offer and as an apology we got our 1st drinks on the house. Thumbs up for great customer service:-)
This was my father in law and I first time to The Dock. It was very busy but we managed to find a place to sit outside for a drink before dinner. The heaters were on so it was comfortable.
The restaurant was very busy but the staff were very attentive and helpful. I had the Wagu beef brisket, and my father in law the lamb shank. Both meals large and the meat fantastic. Serving with a very cold coleslaw and cold cauliflower salad was not good as the night was very cold and just didnt work with the dish so i didnt eat it and had room for dessert but again the menu was more suitable to warmer weather. Good wine menu and an extensive bar of choice so we had a couple of more drinks at the outside bar near a heater before calling it a night. The other patrons were of all sorts of ages.
Our table in the restaurant was near a door leading outside and everytime the private function people needed to access the bathroom they would open the door then leaving it open letting the cold air straight of the ocean hit us. We were forever getting up to shut the door.
I will be back but when summer is back.
Fantastic location and bustling vibe on a Sunday night, and a fantastic menu on offer
Lovely staff, the live music perfect; the food was tasty and we didn’t have to wait too long for our meals. The portion sizes were small for the price especially in regard to the desserts. The kids meals were great size and value. Overall I would recommend a visit.
We had an awesome Mother's Day lunch there. The food was top class and the service was good. Our waitress Natalie was delightful and so much fun. Would go back, that's for sure.
Great beers on tap. Food was good. Large place ideal for big gathering.
Entertainment at bar end at of venue was very loud. It was difficult at the restaurant end to talk. Love the venue, food, drinks and staff
Great location for a family gathering with a good choice of food. Can get a little noisy at night but still has an enjoyable atmosphere.
No complaints at all. Staff were friendly and efficient. Food was brilliant. We didn’t wait long for food or drinks. Ambience was awesome..beautiful setting. Not noisy n great to see u supporting live music. We will be back!
We had a great night, food, wine and a view of the marina. Thanks we will be back.
Beautiful food, great service. Definitely worth the visit!
Music a bit loud while having dinner.
Otherwise it was a fantastic night.
It was disappointing to see that all seafood has been removed from the menu. The staff made up for the menu’s shortcoming. amazing team.
Great steak and great service. Don’t take notice of the less than favourable reviews!
Steak that was ordered was not what was expected. Steak was over cooked, staff not very attentive so couldn't advise them. Served 1 drink, no one came to ask how we were doing or if another drink was required.
Staff were really frienfly and accommodating... had a great evening !!
Great Good, really attentive staff and awesome location. A must visit when in Mooloolaba. We wish that we tried there 6 months ago. We will return.
The food was absolutely beautiful and the staff were so friendly and accommodating. We will definitely be back!
Food was not very good at all.
It was good, service was great when we first arrived - very attentive but half way through we struggled to even find anyone to order a drink, to which we than gave up. Than trying to find someone to get the bill took forever
Amazing place for a birthday lunch. Also an incredible view
A group of four had lunch and considering the price of the steaks and the fact you advertise as a steak specialist I would expect my medium rare to come out medium rare and not medium to well. Lucky the quality of the steak was enough to pull it off and perhaps a bit more sauce rather than a 30ml shot. The atmosphere, vibe and view are great and I would strongly recommend the place for a few drinks and a few tapas.
Burgers where WAY TO SMALL for what you pay for!!!
I have been here 6 times as I need somewhere to take my business clients for lunch. I always enjoy the food and the service but the music is waaaaaay to loud. When I came the other day the music was too loud to talk business. I asked for it to be turned down but still too loud. I think if you kept it a bit lower you will attract a lot of regular business people from La Balsa building who are looking for a good place with good service to take their clients.
Fantastic night. Great food and service
We had a booth over looking the water. The food was delicious and the meals came out quickly
Food was pretty reasonable except for the short ribs which were super tough and dry.
It was a bit disappointing that drink service seemed to stop when our meal was done
I'd also like to add that the bread/dips & nachos - starter were way below par
Don't know how you guys can fix the noise problem
Excellent meal, great value and super service , brilliant setting by the water
