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.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Solbar has that “young” vibe. We’re in our 50s and having stated that, we were greeted and welcomed by a friendly staff, standing outside with her own little area to tend to outside customers. You have the option of eating on their footpath area or...indoors, we selected the footpath area and it was table service. We ordered ‘MegaDeath’ pizza – I love their description “the worst vegetarian pizza on the Coast” (pulled pork, Solbar spice grilled chicken, pepperoni, bacon, chorizo and red onion) with a side of ‘Cauliflower Bites’ (Solbar spiced fried cauliflower and chipotle mayo). They take both cash or credit card, we paid cash but you have to go to the bar area to pay cash, which that lovely lady escorted us to the bar. We were given a bottle of water, while we were waiting, which we didn’t have to wait long. The pizza was quite impressive! The topping was generous and delicious – I have no clue what the Solbar spice consists but it’s really nice and tasty. Their pizza crust is delicious – not too thick or thin, just right, which allows you to enjoy the pizza and able to eat the whole lot, rather than feeling bloated with pizza crust. Their cauliflower bites were “interesting” - didn't look appetising. On its own, it was dry, with the coated Solbar spice – but moist and tender on the inside. However, when you dip it into that chipotle mayo, it’s magnificent and has that delicious added bite – we scooped every drop of that mayo, perfect combination, without the mayo… it wouldn’t be a “yummm” factor. Highly recommend Solbar, just for something different. The service was welcoming and very friendly, the footpath dining area was comfortable. The evening was a little cold but they do have outdoor heaters, which they turned them on, just to give you that extra comfort. But do check out their gigs, if you’re interested? They offer a gig per night, with meal deals to go with it – worth checking and make it a fun night, as a group?More

Just a good place. Not pretentious at all. Reasonable prices. Staff would be the friendliest on the coast. Even made an old bloke feel welcomed.

Frankly disappointing, we have been to see Hope play serval times and she was incredible like always, the let down was the venue, the live sound was honestly tragic, it was so loud and so much low end that it was unintelligible, hope was almost...drowned out by the poor quality live sound mixing, and there were several occasions where microphones fed back. Wouldn’t go to another concert at this venue, but I’d go and see Hope again and againMore

I have been to Soul Bar multiple times for a drink, but for some reason they rejected me for wearing a footy jersey, I find that very odd considering I was wearing long pants, R & Williams shoes and a denim jacket. I was prepared...to spend a lot of money there along with 5 of my mates. I lined up for 30min, ended up being a big waste of time, won’t be heading there again. Would not recommend to anyone, Duporth Tavern are way more tolerant and a better bar/club.More

Had dinner here tonight and very impressed. Friendly staff who made us feel welcome and checked all was good without being overbearing. Order taken promptly and did not have to wait long for our drinks and meals to arrive. Best calamari I have had in...a very long time. Definitely recommend.More

It's rare to find such good customer service as we had from Kelsey when friends and I had lunch there recently. The chips weren't bad either!

We come to Solbar every Thursday night for the Where Is My Mind music trivia hosted by Drew and Tommy. It's the highlight of our week. The boys are so funny, we love their style and have so much fun. Cheap drink and burger deals!

My partner and I had never been to Maroochydore and had been bowling and our friends had said to meet them in Solbar. We sat very quietly in the line as I was keen to head home but wanted to see our friend for her...birthday and the group of boys in front of us were “coaching” their friend on how to get past security as he was clearly on drugs. He got in and hi-5 his mates. The head security guard was busy swanning around with girls he knew, touching girls in the line, when he walked up an whispered in the security guards ear who was scanning my licence and next minute after waiting in line for 20 minutes I am told I’m not being allowed in as security have flagged me. As someone who worked in night life and with security in my younger days, I am the first to support not allowing in disorderly people. This however was pure discrimination as we were not mid twenties, were not in skimpy outfits and were simply standing quietly waiting to get in. We didn’t argue at the door , we just contacted our group of 8 friends and they all promptly left. Talking to police and security on the street the word was that this is a common issue. Don’t spend your money hereMore

Food was great and really enjoyed the live open mic night music, but let down by the waitres who was very rude to myself and a few of my friends. I was accused of eating other peoples food orders even though we were given a...table number for our order and I was handed what I had ordered, as well as being patronising to one of our party who pronounced the name of a beer worng when ordering. I assume she was just having a bad day however this did put a sour taste in our visit.More
