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.

Two mates and I decided to give Curlys a try for one of our Grouchy Old Geezers lunches and came away with nothing to grouch about! No doof doof music or traffic noise to put you off your food, a menu selection that rose above...the usual, good size servings and fast and friendly service. 10/10 will be back,More

Always deliver 110% I used to visit Curly’s quite often while visiting my friend who resided in Mt Coolum. At that time Curly’s also provided dinner. We have tried breakfast, lunch, afternoon tea and dinner - they always delivered. The food had always been phenomenal....I remember carrot cake was exceptional. After my friend moved interstate I stopped coming over to Mt Coolum but last month my bestfriend for decades came to Queensland for first time. Of course I brought her to Mt Coolum and visited Curly’s. After years absent, I am so glad that nothing hasn’t changed much except that they don’t serve dinner anymore. This time we went for breakfast and ordered Mince and sourdough, Egg Benny’s and Haloumi for aside plus coffee and fresh juice. All were too notch! My bestfriend who travels around the world and visited so many restaurants was so impressed with the quality of food and service… and I am so glad I brought her to Curly’s. Thank you.More

Fantastic setting with great indoors and outdoors seating suitable for all weathers. Great menu, we brunched, and catered well for standard and gluten free. Very good, but not quite excellent coffees. And really great service. Allied to this is the great board walk through the...native vegetation to the great sea views.More

We haven't been here for quite some time and overall for us it was a pretty average experience. Service- Average Atmosphere- Average Food- Average Staff weren't very friendly. It was very quiet which was surprising given it was the weekend. Food was just ok, although...the bacon was undercooked. Asked for almond milk and received normal milk. Didn't give feedback at the time as I felt it wouldn't be well received unfortunately. Probably wouldn't go back which is a pity as it's so close to home.More

Took a friend there because I love the ambiance. When ordering breakfast I asked three, yes three Times for my coffee to be hot. Coffee arrived luke warm and my partners fritters and bacon were cold. I had my coffee replaced for a hot one(why...not get it right the first time) and my partners second coffee was complimentary after we mentioned by his hot meal was cold. Staff lovely and very obliging, but still the meal was a disappointment.More

I had the temerity to criticise the service four of us received from the FOH waiting staff on a recent visit. I received a phone call to to say I was banned although I’d been there since it opened years ago and am in a...group of about 30 who used the place. We don’t go anymore. It’s a lottery if this place is open these days. Cheers and good luck to them.More

The change of ownership hasn’t been kind to this business. The young FOH staff are not very friendly and lack the skill of properly addressing their clients. The quality of food however remains adequate.

Curly’s on the Boardwalk has recently changed hands and I am glad to say under the guidance of the new owner, Renee and her daughter Sky, is still excellent. It was a sad occasion, a 'wake 'for an old friend, but Renee and her team...did a wonderful job of cheering everyone up. The food was excellent and never stopped coming and the service was perfect. I have frequented it many times, including my 80th BD, and I am glad to say I would recommend it to anyone as a venue Michael Roch michaelroch45@gmail.comMore

We had the best experience from phone contact right through to our lovely lunch with friends there today! All the good reviews it has received are exactly right. The atmosphere is relaxed and it is more of a mature crowd. Definitely not trying to do...the hipster thing. The food was perfect, 3 of us had the snapper special and I would say it's one of the best fish meals I have ever had! The desserts are only your bought in standard stuff but that's the only ordinary thing about the place.The coffee is good and the staff are very friendly and attentive without being annoying. We will definitely be back!More

This is a first I’ve heard of it being closed for large groups as the few times we’ve been during the day it’s been truely open. I know they have a FB page that might post notices like this.
