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.

Have just eaten @ the oyster shed beach shack with my family & whilst the food was enjoyable the fact that it is served in cardboard containers & wooden cutlery was a great disappointment to all. Our total food bill was over $300 so really @ those prices surely proper crockery & cutlery would not be too much to ask for. View was amazing & as previously stated food was enjoyable.

Lovely part of the coast. We stopped in for dinner after visiting Bribie Island for the day, and we’re really impressed. The meals were lovely and the staff were great.

Sandstone Point Hotel impresses with its delectable cuisine and inviting ambiance. With a diverse menu featuring fresh seafood and flavourful dishes, it promises a delightful dining experience. The attentive service and scenic location overlooking the water add to its charm, making it a must-visit culinary destination

I wrote a good review a few years ago but unfortunately the experience here is now bad enough that I won't come again. Over the past year or 2 I have been for a lunch about 3 times (most recently in March 2024) and these times the service has been poor and the food very average. It's such as shame as the venue is fabulous and has great views and there are many dining options. The Oyster Shed is basically a fast food takeaway but is nicely situated near the mangroves and so with the food is ok. The staff on the bars and restaurant seem to be unhappy - if their demeanour and service (not with a smile) is anything to go by. By contrast, the owners have the Eatons Hill Hotel which we visited this month and that was fabulous!

We booked our engagement party on the poinciana deck. Unfortunately the weather was not in our favour. But the venue team & management were all over it. We still had a gorgeous location! The food was Incredible! Our venue manager Jess was lovely & we were her top priority for the night. Can’t thank the team enough! We’re super lucky to have this as our local venue! Thanks for catering to our needs and making our night truly special.

Set in beautiful grounds and what a lovely children's play area. However they should lock the door to the video games room which adjoins the lovely play area. My grandchildren who are two and a half had easy access and were facinated by the machines that could kill dinosaurs. Not appropriate and trying to keep them out of there was a nightmare. We eventually got them out and they were a le to play on the trampoline and run around on the beautiful lawns outside. We ordered a vegan pizza which we were not able to add vegetables to it, 2 pieces were eaten and the rest was left. The Gnocci was cold and had to be sent back. I don't think I would by choice be re visiting.

I love this venue I have been here for a variety of events and they never fail to disappoint, which is why they won Australia’s best entertainment venue 2023. I was here for Australia Day and they had water available around the whole venue which meant you weren’t waiting at the bar for it and made it easily accessible. Staff are friendly and food is yummy. I had the harissa chicken pizza on a gluten free base and crème brûlée. Both are a must try. I cannot comment on the regular pizzas bases. My only con for Australia Day would be they closed the 50m Slip n Slide with no sign up stating a time it would close so people were unaware and only got one turn after paying $5 for unlimited goes. It was super fun however i know a few people wished it went on longer. Overall a great fun filled day and will always return. Thanks Sandstone Point Hotel!

We ordered starters and main course at 7:15 ppm and by 7:45 both meals were out. We were still eating our starters when my main meal came our. We ordered steaks medium rare ( not cheap ) I said to the waiter we are still on our starters, they had just been brought to us and his attitude was oh yeh well people like them out straight away , but we’re still eating we said , alright I’ll leave them under the light he said , then it won’t be medium rare any more. We ended up just taking them. I was still a bit full from the starters so I had to push it aside ( waste of money ) and the main was freezing cold and we couldn’t eat it because we had no rest time. Wouldn’t mind but the booking says the table is yours for twos hrs .. the waiter should not be serving people he had no hospitality manners at all

We were there for a Xmas get together. We couldn’t hear the people around the table Talking we notified several staff in reguards to the loud music. It went down for about 15 minutes then back up again. We were then back again the following week for another Xmas get together and the music level was worse spike to 3/4 staff again same thing music went down then went back up. If you want to go to dinner there and actually talk to your friends around the table. I wouldn’t recommend it. management don’t seem to care as long as they get there customers .

Worst tasting scones ever, dry hard tasteless. Cream out of a can strawberry jam served in a takeaway containter. We went here with a family member that was supposed to be a highlight as we travelled up from far north Queensland to visit. Never again

Had dinner here with the family, the location is beautiful and has a great playground area for the kids. However the food and service was disappointing, the menu items we wanted were not available. Ordered a pizza it was average nothing to rave about, couldn’t order the drinks we wanted from the QR code. The toilets were disgusting you could smell urine from the moment you walked past them. I advised a staff member about it and she couldn’t have cared less.

We are on holiday from Scotland, staying with family nearby who took us to the sandstone point restaurant. Arrived and it was set up nice. Very big and busy, lively atmosphere, which we enjoyed it! We sat on a long table outside. Ordered food and drinks. Kids loved the play park and the arcades (pokies?) Food was really really good. I had the lamb kebabs to start and really enjoyed them. Rest of party had prawns which looked great. We then most of us had chicken parmigiana which was so nice. One of our party had the fish curry special and said it as nice. Portions large and filling. Only down side was I asked if my son (8 year old) could have the mussels plain steamed and was told no. Nothing in the menu to indicate they would be with a spicy sauce so ordered them, he ultimately couldn’t eat them as far too spicy, and (extra!) jalapeños to top. Apart From that, food fantastic. Drinks nice. Setting perfect, we didn’t mind the chatter and noise but it’s probs not somewhere for a quiet intimate meal. Great fun!

Horrible and not recommended. The family met up for a meal and a get together. Could not chat above the squealing loud music? Drinks were expensive but the food was inedible. Pulled pork pizza was big globs of sauce and chutney with a slight sprinkle of meat and was too awful to eat. While chatting and exchanging gifts in the car park later, staff swooped inferring that one of the gifts, a high chair, was stolen from them. Of course it wasnt, they had no proof... nothing. It was just a family who live a long way from each other, exchanging items before they parted. The staff have horrible attitudes.
