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.

I had been giving this place a miss for some time as the service just gave off such bad vibes. But, there’s an amazing young lad working here now who is so bright and friendly. I was so impressed, the meal was lovely too! I...never thought this place would turn around but with the new staff, it’s a goer!More

Wonderful service, friendly staff, great views, and well priced food. On the weekend you can spend the afternoon relaxing while having a drink and listening to the local musician. Highly recommend.

🦐👨‍🍳🍽🦀🪸 Enjoyed our seafood lunches today. Large menu with the freshest seafood. The Marinara's calamari, prawns and white fish were so tender. The combo seafood pastry was cooked to perfection, with crunchy pastry and tender flavoured mixed seafood. Barra grilled well, with a house made...tartare sauce and all the salads evening chopped making it easy to eat. Yummo dressings! All our drinks were crispy cold and the service friendly 🪸 Thanks Chef 👨‍🍳 ☆☆☆☆☆More

Very disappointing. Great welcome but everything after that was just awful. Plenty of staff to wait on two tables of people but nobody seemed interested. Had to approach the staff numerous times to even get service. When we did finally get served we were treated...to the most sour face possible. We felt a burden to them rather than them interested in our service. Have been coming for years and has always been a highlight. Today was a disaster!! If you no longer want to provide a good service then sell the place to someone who will!!More

Awful experience. Family of 4 and we walked out in disgust. Why work in hospitality if you can't be hospitable. Give up and do something else with your life and stop putting a dark cloud over anyone that comes to an otherwise magical location. I've...heard hemorrhoid cream is on special at the moment. Maybe that will help!More

Last time I go! Have been to Goody's several times in the last few years and each time the service gets worse. I've done making excuses up for them. We've always taken overseas family/friends here but no more. Firstly, our party of 3 were not...good enough to qualify for a table near the water, we asked if we could sit at one of those. There were plenty of tables available overlooking the water from when we arrived to when we left. They weren't reserved either. Our table, where we were told to sit, was big enough for 6 people, as were the ones by the water. So it wasn't a numbers issue. Mostly all are big tables. The order was taken, then we waited and waited. The 3 coffees arrived after about 20 mins. One coffee was Luke warm and had to be remade. We had ordered raison toast and French raison toast. People arrived after us and were served with large cooked meals before us. It was approximately an hour before we left, as we were due elsewhere, we told them to forget the order! We couldn't wait any longer. One of the waitresses' seems to be constantly annoyed with customers and has no real concept of service or welcoming guests. We left there annoyed and hungry! We will not be returning again.More

We went to Goodys yesterday being a Monday The service was great, however the food took along time to arrive. 2 tables that arrived after us walked out due to no food being delivered. I ordered a fillet steak but it certainly was not a...fillet steak ( I really don’t know what the cut was) I asked for medium cook and it was bleeding on the plate. I couldn’t even cut it with the steak knife provided!! My husband ordered the chicken schnitzel which was very nice. We returned our the steak meal to the front counter and the lady was very apologetic and said she would take a photo and let the owners know! It was the worst steak I have ever been served definitely will not be returning or recommending. Staff were lovely about it so that helped.More

We arrived at 12.45 and had to ask the waiter if we could order. We only ordered one meal to share and then was only 3 other tables occupied so very quiet. We had to continually ask for water. We waited 45 mins for a...burger that had cold chips and a burger that was literally thrown on a plate completely fallen off to one side.More

Very relaxed and terrific view of the Pacific Best Salt and Pepper Calamari in Hervey Bay, I have been a few times now and it is not a once off experience. Occasionally a guitar playing singer, not too loud so good background mood. Being over...70 I enjoy the entre sized meal and a good coffee on the side. Very reasonable prices.More

Right from entering the restaurant, we were told to wait while the staff member performed other menial tasks. Ultimately, we were shown to a table and the menus just cast onto the table as the staff member dashed away. We decided on our order and...I went to the counter to place my order, but was told that it was “table service”. Some 15 minutes later, the staff member arrived to take our order and then returned about 15 minutes later with the drinks. There was a problem with the kitchen, but nothing was said to any patrons, and the time for meal preparation was well past any reasonable expectations. Many patrons were commenting among their groups about the exceptionally long wait time for food. Some tables had to shout to get waitstaff attention for more drinks, as the staff seemed to have blinders, clearly ignoring all but the most vigorous attempts to get their attention. After more than one and a half hours enter ordering, our meals arrived, but not exactly as we had ordered. I asked if there had been a problem in the kitchen. The staff member simply said “ the printer”. I asked for clarification and was informed that the printer was not working and it had held up all meals. This seemed strange as the orders were hand written by the waitress, and it shouldn’t have taken more than an hour to resolve. In summary; The staff do not acknowledge the customers on arrival. You are left to wait like you are invisible. The staff are not attentive to the customers, and strongly resist any attempt by the customer to gain their attention. Problems can disrupt any business, and keeping all of your customers updated on issues, particularly when waiting times are blown out, is typically going to reduce customer complaints. The meals were not uniform in content and were well below expectations. When I offered some constructive criticism at the check out, I was told I was too angry. I was grossly disappointed in the quality of the meal, the lack of uniformity between two identical meals and the overall attitude of the staff team leaders and team members. It was appalling!More

Stopped in a pretty location, friendly inexperienced staff. Took 20 minutes to order. After waiting an hour for a drink and some indication of food, left for a place down the road.
