We dropped in unannounced for a light meal and we were impressed with all things we experienced. A good selection of wine & beer, great contemporary food and very pleasant service. If we are in the area again, we will revisit. Great location overlooking the...water with the 800m pier just off in the distance.More

We had heard good things about The Vinyard and were not disappointed! From the moment we entered to the moment we left, the waiting staff were helpful, friendly and knowledgeable. My husband has a severe garlic allergy and they took his concerns very seriously and...talked things over with the chef. The food was cooked fresh and was absolutely delicious. Next time I am in Hervey Bay I will certainly go back to the Vinyard.More

Our family ventured to The Vinyard recently to explore their gastronomic delights. Whilst enjoying the in/out sub alfresc ambience we where discussing the lack of real quality fine dining venues through out the region. OMG! I could not have been more wrong or surprised. I...truly tip my hat to the entire staff of The Vinyard. My meal, a kangaroo renditions was to die for. Skilful hands presented this Australian icon as it should, robust and heartier than most game. However there where sublime undertones and uplifting flora flavours tickling the taste buds . A superb evening, a definite recommendation to all whom visit Hervey Bay.More

Another great dinning experience at Vineyard, from the minute we arrived were well looked after by Emily the Manager. After enjoying cocktails we had the scallops ceviche, oysters with wasabi and lime granita followed by seafood chowder that looked and tasted amazing and was so...full of large prawns and scallops. My partner had the chefs cut which he thoroughly enjoyed. We come here quite often and have never been disappointed. A must if you love seafood is the Moreton Bay Bugs which we have enjoyed many times as they are amazing - a great flavour combination. Emily the manager makes you feel very welcome and supports her team to do a great job of making you feel very well looked after. Can’t wait to try the new menu.More

We booked for the New Years Eve multi-course dinner. Although the place is known for seafood, we have always found them attentive to our vegetarian needs. New Year's Eve was no exception. We were greeted like old friends (and we are repeat customers when in...the area) by Emily, a succession of delicate dushes including tempura zucchini flowers,brischetta and one of my husband's favourites, the rosemary baked potatoes. As middnight neared, the staff brought around complimentary glasses of champagne to oast the new year, and Emily thoughtfully arrived at our table with some fruit mocktails as she knows we don't drink. The only dish that let the meal down was dessert, which was a kind of stodgy oat mixture which didn't complement the other dishes. All in all, still a good meal and fun way to spend New Years. We celebrated with a walk along Urangan pier!More

Promptly shown to our table we ordered a cocktail. Which was okay but nothing special The tempura prawns were lovely. Mains a goat curry but I thought it was boring. The little accompaniments yogurt jam and chilli were nice but didn’t help. My mum ordered...the fish of the day and it was dry . Plus not a good tasting fish really. They did not charge her for this meal and that was very kind of them. Great view. But I think we have had better meals in Harvey BayMore
