Entree of Salt & Pepper Prawns were delicious and light and the Spicy Malaysian Sambal Fish was awesome. A terrific pub with good food, relaxed NQ atmosphere and one of the best beer gardens in Queensland.

We had several evening meals at Grand View. Welcomed on arrival and directed to a table. Pleasant atmosphere, friendly and very efficient staff, generous servings, and very cold beer. Will be back.

In airconditioned comfort you are offered a varied menu - something to suit everyone - beef, seafood, pasta, salads. The service is quick and the meals well presented. Recommend highly for first class food and service.
