We dined here for lunch on a unseasonably wet May day. Meals are generous in size. My husband had battered fish and chips which he enjoyed and I had the fish special - Moroccan mackerel which was quite dry which was a little disappointing. The...beers were cold though. :)More

Used to love this pub, but apparently they bucked the Covid requirements, and can only trade takeaway food and drink. If this is wrong, my apologies - if it’s right, fools fools fools. The nearby bars and food outlets must be very happy….

We had a few beers and meals here during our stay. Prompt service and cold beer makes for good business. Worth a crack. I’ll return again

It's a shame we found this place towards the end of our stay in Mission Beach. The staff here a so lovely and friendly. The meals are brilliant, can't beat a good old fashion pub feed. My partner is Gluten free but loves beer so...it's hard to find gluten free beer. The staff went out of their way to find a gluten free beer. That's perfect service, if we're ever in Mission Beach again, will most definitely be coming for a feed and beers. Plus the pool tables are only $1 could spend hours drinking and playing pool hereMore

Not many places have consistent quality of both food and service but Mission Beach Tavern definitely does! Great atmosphere and people-watching opportunities out the front with a beautiful plant-filled beer garden in the back! Have been back so many times and will continue to!

Staff are friendly but the food was not edible. The chef needs to be sacked. Broccoli cooked to an inch of its life and old shrivelled mushroom on my plate. Yellow chicken and pre sealed pork chop. Yuk! When they replace the chef with the...‘chef wanted sign’ at the bar, we might be back.More

It is unfortunate that you didn't enjoy your meals, it is also unfortunate that you choose to use this channel to voice your opinion rather than approach management at the time of your so called Inedible meal being delivered. No such complaint was made,which I...More

Had two dinners and one afternoon indulgence, first dinner was good, the sticky date pudding was excellent but the last meal I ordered 300gr scotch fillet med. rare cooked perfect but only 50gr of the steak was edible the rest was fat and gristle. It...cost $35 so I would expect nothing to be left on the plate but not this steak most off it was left. I was offered a free drink and declined, the response was "oh well sorry about that"More
