We placed the order, paid, and then they said they were running out of it. We had to choose something different, and it was cheaper. No refund provided. We won’t come back.

Newer area in Mooloolaba, at least for us. The restaurant looked a little dark in the main part but we found a more brighter spot on the side over looking the marina. Nice view with seats up against the window, Opted for the tapa’s style...dishes and the food was very very good. Nice spot nice foodMore

After eating in nearby restaurants and noticing this restaurant was very busy we tried it for ourselves. It wasn’t too busy on a Tuesday night but we recommend booking ahead for a weekend visit to avoid disappointment. We booked a table at the rear of...the room which overlooks the boats/harbour. Otherwise the high roof makes the main dining floor area noisy when the room is full from our observations. The staff were excellent in their commentary around the food and drink to how it was presented and tasted. We had two staff attend to us for the evening which made for a good rapport. We were suggested the smalls plates were then way to go and focus on the smoked meat options. Dishes we enjoyed included the chilli prawns, schezwan shrimp, chicken wings, pork belly and smoked pork cigars. The gao gao was tasteless and don’t waste your cash there. Maybe that’s typical of gao gao, we weren’t expecting much with that one. They were able to do gf bread to accompany the chilli prawns sauce. The only real fizza was they weren’t doing the smoked beef steak dish which was what the staff said was their most popular dish due to the chef not being happy with the cut of meat supplied by there supplier that day. Strange reason but I guess they have a standard they seek for their customers. We would recommend trying this restaurant, and think you will enjoy it.More

The Wharf Mooloolaba has a great pub restaurant called the dock. The staff are well trained and very helpful. Good selection of great food at reasonable prices. The outdoor tables in the sun are a great place to relax.

We came here for dinner. We had hoped for the tomahawk steak, but unfortunately they were out of stock (hence 4 and not 5 stars). Instead we ordered some share plates. Pork belly bites are great. Nice flavour and melt in your mouth. The Jalapeño...peppers are also a must with just the right amount of heat. Not a place for an intimate dinner, but definitely good food and great for a celebrationMore

Thank you so much for your review. We are glad you enjoyed your visit. Unfortunately we did have to remove the Tomahawk, since sells were slow and we could not guarantee a fresh produce.

Average over priced food, considering there is no table service I just can’t justify the cost. Won’t be returning in a rush.

We are very sorry you feel that way Frank. We assure the cost comes from local and high quality produce, and we are sorry you didn't feel they were worthy.

Menu is great for sharing and family groups. We ordered a share plate of the slow cooked smoked pork with a side of greens. Prices were reasonable and the drinks menu was extensive with a number of beers on tap. Excellent friendly service.
