we had the seafood platter at $90. had enough seafood to easily feed 5 adults. managed to get a great table without booking...word of warning it packs put early. so pre-book a table away from the back inside of the restaurant (where they put all the kids tables and isnt too attractive). book towards the open front area and you...

10 month old daughter loved the other kids. $25 lamb rump with roast potatoes and blueberry sauce quite nice. Lamb medium and tasty. $32.50 grilled snapper special was tiny (estimate 75 g) overcooked and still smelt fishy suggesting it was 3 days past prime. Salad was big to make up for tiny fish. Have to order drinks from bar and... More

Above average prices, well below standard food. Wagyu Beef Burger for $18.50 was a sorry excuse for a burger. For that sort of money one would expect a fresh bun not a defrosted one. The meat patty was very tasteless, and as it was only topped with the minuscules piece of ''house pickle" (not sure what a house pickle is)... More

What happened straddie pub? We have been coming for years and each time our visit is slightly less in quality. We love your view but the bistro really lets you down. The quality and service has definitely declined over the last 12 months. Food is average, and it's a real shame to see this place go downhill. Bring back the... More

Visited same time last year, the place was legitimately terrible. Someone has obviously seen the warning signs, with a changed menu and improved service making the hotel a viable visit for a meal. Have had the lamb rump twice, very good. Wife has alternated between steak and chicken salad, no problems there. No pizzas available for ordering during our visits.... More

It's a nice outlook during the day. But at night the view can't save it, and you're left with ordinary pub food & sour staff. Showed up before 8pm for dinner, the place is 3/4 empty. Was asked snappily- 'Do you have a booking?!' No honey, we didn't think a booking would be necessary for your empty bistro... She dumped... More

The view is 5/5 but the food and service is dodgy. Expensive for the size of the servings and service can be very slow.

Great amazing views. Food is adequate pub food. Service okay but a bit slow. Worth a visit now and again.

Had both breakfast and dinner here each of 3 days we stayed at the hotel so we could take advantage of magnificent view. Prices very reasonable. Breakfasts were better than dinners. Staff very friendly and helpful.

Stradbroke Island Hotel bar and food area have quite pleasant surroundings and a nice outlook over the ocean. The food is average and relatively expensive for pub food. A downer was paying $36 for a dozen tiny oysters with no sauce or dressing - and one was well and truly off. Their calamari and battered fish were nice and fresh... More
