The menu has vegetarian, steak, chicken, seafood, rice and pasta based meals, and salad options as well as a dessert menu. Wines can be purchased by the glass. My friend chose lamb skewers with...

My partner and I came here for our anniversary dinner and a couple drinks. The service was incredible, even for a busy Saturday night. Our dinner was equally as great. We will defiantly be back, thank you!

We have been to The Ship Inn numerous times previously. We have always liked it. Our latest visit, on a balmy Saturday night, was a big disappointment. The food was good and most of the staff were friendly. However, the Head Waiter or Duty Manager was abrupt, rude and disinterested. He rushed us through our order, slammed plates down, looked...

Stopped by this restaurant because I saw a claim they had the best lamb in Brisbane. I asked the server what lamb dish he recommended for dinner, and that turned out to be the Souvlaki. OK that's fine with me - and in reasonably quick time it came. Staff were friendly and efficient. However, I was extremely disappointed with the... More

We went as a group of eight and all the meals were just wonderful and at a reasonable price. I had the pork and scallops and it was huge and so delicious!

The ship inn provides excellent food and reasonable price. Good size portions alongside a friendly environment. The seating area outside is greeted by a nice green view.

Nothing fancy like new restaurants by the Brisbane river but 150years history, good old taste, classic pub ! Very relaxed atmosphere, specially beer garden, small but cosy and comfortable. We had " Beef Cheeks ", slow cooked in Fat Yak pale ale and served with a parmesan scone, creamy mush and greens. So tender, so tasty, heavenly delicious ! Also... More
