Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Very disappointing. We came for lunch as we wanted to try the mixed serving of oysters. It was displayed beautifully but for the price we paid the oysters hardly had any toppings, you couldn’t taste them. We paid nearly $90 for two entrees and 2 drinks.
A young waitress had no customer service skills to the point I had to say hello as she just stared at us. Then she forgot to give us our drinks and my partner had to go up and get them after our meal. Then when she came to get the plates she didn’t communicate just took them. Didn’t even ask if we had finished.

One positive is the lady behind the counter as you first walk in was very welcoming and another lady who apologised about our drinks. But unfortunately we won’t be returning.

Once again, the staff at Waterline provided an excellent service from check-in to boat familiarisation. Best boats on the river. Very flexible dock staff allowed us to berth multiple times to pick-up/drop-off family. Highly recommended.

We booked online. Waterline Boathouse was an absolute pleasure to deal with. We had a wonderful morning fishing.

Great staff, great place !!!
My family, many of our friends and their families have visited the Waterline Boathouse on many occasions over the years and have never had anything but a fantastic experience. The boats are clean and reliable, the Party Pontoons are very easy to navigate and superbly comfortable for a luxurious day out on the water.

The leisure equipment is first class and hire fees are well priced.
After a day out on the lake, you can return and relax on the deck for an afternoon sunset, great food (oysters and prawns to die for !!!) and ice cold drinks or a hot cuppa if that's your thing.

The staff are all wonderfully helpful and cannot do enough for you, whether it be from a simple coffee or all the way through to boat / equipment hire and a great feed. If I could give 10 Stars, I most certainly would.....I encourage everyone to drop in if you are close by....I won't be going anywhere else. A great atmosphere to just chill and relax in the sunshine. Keep up the great work.

Well what a fabulous little spot this is… water side seating, with excellent views. The food is amazing and the service is brilliant. Visited twice during our coast stay and bringing local friends with us, who said they would also return. Great business well done to all involved.

The waterline boathouse oyster and wine bar was exceptional. We had our wedding reception lunch here. The staff were friendly and wonderful. The food we had sesfood platters and ploughmans platters with champagne absolutely delicious and amazing. Sweet blue swimmer crabs Local oysters, prawns sushi So much food so fresh. Lovely setting backing onto the Wallis lake at Forster. I recommend this venue to anyo e whether it be for an intimate couple or a family and particularly for an event.

Best looking boats on the river. The Bennington was great for cruising along. Staff were very flexible with changes due to weather. Grandkids had a ball.

After a couple of nice hours out on the water we made our way back to Waterline. It was a bit busy at the time but the owner furiously waved at us to come in and dock. Unfortunately the front of the boat hit the jetty and did make a small dent.
We were told that they would have to have the assessor look at if before they could refund our deposit.
All this is fair but what is most annoying is that they have made zero contact with us regarding the outcome even after many emails, texts and phone calls and promises that they would.
We considered ourselves good customers and always returning our hire boats in great condition.
The owner/manager was extremely rude and difficult and really treated us like dirt.
The boat hire businesses next door will be getting our business from now on.

Hired a half cabin cruiser for 3 hours, was just about the right amount of time to explore the waterways. Boat was very easy to use, and ideal size for 4 adults. Easy to book, and nice friendly staff. Recommended!
