Booked for a meal with my mother who is visiting from the Uk (it's Mother's Day in the U.K. Today) Didnt even make the meal. The complimentary pick up failed to pick us up despite us waiting outside our accomodation for half an hour and them having my phone number. Would happily have got a cab but it was too... More

Since its revamp we've had a couple of meals here . The setting overlooking the Coral sea and the harbour full of white boats is fabulous. There is a great play area that distracts the children ( always a bonus ) The menu is reasonably priced with a good selection , I had a prawn and squid salad and it... More

We recently held a family gathering here. The location is marvellous - overlooking the water is really lovely. The function included a bar tab and finger food. The finger food was fantastic - everyone enjoyed it. Bar service was a little bit hit and miss > some drinks weren't available at the bar we had the tab at, but could... More

We had a luncheon here for four and I would certainly recommend a reservation on the beautiful deck. There was a lovely breeze keeping it nice and cool, it was well shaded and we enjoyed watching the boating activity and admiring boats that were moored in the marina. The staff here were very attentive and personable. The prices were quite... More

Even with a boat moored at Yorkeys, the food is always so bad we only eat there once every six months. We were pleasantly surprised the other night when the steak was cooked nice and the creamy mushroom sauce actually had mushrooms in it and was creamy - been waiting years for this. My friend had schnitzel with seafood which... More

Have now eaten here many times on our visits to TNQ. Always consistent pub type food with an excellent marina location. The staff are very friendly. We had the fish special last time there, which was very very nice. I just wish they had a few more non-fried dishes, as I don't always want batter on fish, calamari etc. Otherwise,... More

Basically this is your typical pub meal but served with a fantastic atmosphere of watching the boats come in during the day, and watching the planes come in overhead at night. Meals are basic pub meals but very nice quality - service is good and the waiters are very friendly (ours noticed we were a fun group so joined in... More

Dinner at the Boat Club. Always go here for dinner at least once when staying in Yorkeys, when in Cairns, this area is our 'go to' place (Villa Marine Motel). Huge eating area overlooking the yacht/boat club. Big enough for the locals and the visitors so they're not tripping over eachother. Food always excellent, arrives quickly and the waitstaff are...

If you want to impress your friends then this is the place to go. Maybe not the most scenic of drives down to the waterfront but a wonderful deck eaterie when you get there!! Pre-book a waterfront table if high season or just take your chances as most tables here have a great sea view. The food is not cheap... More
