Great view, great service, good food. Had the prawn yellow curry which was lovely the prawns were a little over cooked and there could be a few more. Saying that it was a great experience and can’t wait for it to reopen.

The service was not the best. It appeared that the restaurant had overbooked and there weren't enough staff to cope.
We were disappointed that the Duck Curry was not available.
We had to get our bill printed off 3 times as the first 2 they produced were incorrect.

You will not be disappointed!
Food is absolutely divine with a superior location to match.
Water lapping under our toes literally while our taste buds where tantalized...
Amie's table service also second to none which both my partner and I greatly appreciate.
We will be back!

Wouldn’t take young children there again but that was my oversight. Kids were a bit too young but the staff were super accommodating and did their best to cater for us. Cocktails and food were amazing. Can’t wait to have girls dinner or a proper date night/day there when your renovations are done!

A good day with very nice food , service was excellent couldn’t ask for more. I realise there are renovations to take place, if there was any negetive it would be lack of refurbishment. I must give the staff a rap, great service they added to the atmosphere and they enjoye there job. Sahara your a gem.

We had a beautiful lunch at Rick Shores. The food was very tasty and the meals were quite large, especially the whole chicken. It's great for sharing as there are some really yummy things on the menu. The service was fantastic and our waitress Sarah was very knowledgeable and happy to recommend dishes that would compliment each one. The only downside was they didn't serve Bundaberg Rum so the boys weren't very impressed! Otherwise a lovely afternoon all round.

I brought my family here for the first time as I loved this place when I caught up with friends here. We all loved it and will be back after their renovations are finished. The bug rolls were such a hit, we will be back.

First visit (but certainly won' t be the last) we were pleasantly surprised with all aspects of this exceptional restaurant. It doesn't get much better than looking at the sea while sipping an Old Fashioned.
The wait staff were informative and most helpful - but not pushy.
And you must consider the Red Duck Curry - it is truly exceptional

We traveled to the Gold Coast and wanted somewhere really nice with a spectacular view to go too for lunch - so glad we picked Rick Shores! This place is amazing! The waitress helped me pick out the best cocktails (which were reasonably priced) and the all the food was devine! (The bug roll, prawn curry and chicken..)...just amazing! Will return!

A most enjoyable evening. The food was delicious and the service was fabulous by Julia. We appreciated Michael coming to our table to introduce himself and chat.

Unfortunately, we felt our happy service came to an abrupt end when we only left a small tip, which we felt was expected.
We really couldn’t afford any more.
Our warm welcome and service ended on a sour note where we weren’t bid goodbye and ignored as we left.

Great food, service was very casual & a little hit & miss ( forgot our drink order twice & got our food order wrong) but they were friendly just not really concentrating on their job. Food was excellent, view is excellent during the day. Very cold at night - basically same temperature as outside even with windows closed. Worst part was that our table was sticky!! like you know not properly cleaned for months. Not a nice feel.

Cocktails were well made at the bar while we waited for our table (we were early) - internal ambiance is very nice. Hard surfaces make the acoustics loud but it was ok. Morton Bay bug appetiser signature dish was divine. Trout very good - but perhaps a little worked up - I personally prefer my fish on the simpler side - but this is just a view. Waiting staff were attentive.

This is the best restaurant on the Gold Coast. We have lived here for 23 years and this was our first visit to Rick Shores at Burleigh.

It is a world class restaurant with an amazing view perched right on the beach. I have eaten at the famous Neil Perry restaurant " Rockpool" in Sydney

Rick Shore is half the price and twice the experience especially in friendly staff .

Great place

The food was good but not worth the price. It didn't feel like an intimate dining experience due to the fact we were seated at a bar style seating with other people. The noise level was really loud, so much so that we could barely hear each other despite sitting right next to each other. Cocktails were average. We thought it was overrated for what it was.

We had a reservation at 8:30pm and had to wait 15 mins for a table to be ready which was a slight annoyance (but no problem).

The service was great in the beginning, with a very friendly waiter (and waitress) who offered us a window table that became available. It was quite loud for my elderly inlaws.

Unfortunately the night went down. Fast.

We were seated right beside a table of unruly customers. The ladies were constantly getting up and walking around our table, three time pushing by us with force only to take photos of their food (literally grabbing and physically moving my sister in-laws chair) in clear site of the waiters. The two males at the table were were talking vulgar and swearing loudly (amongst other things) - the waiters/waitresses were reluctant to address them, even when I politely asked. Very uncomfortable.

The food was delicious, however we were lead to believe they would be bigger portions by the waiter (enough for a table of 5). This wasn't the case.

This being said, I would probably visit again in the future.

From start to finish we were so impressed with Rick Shores, yet again. From getting a table with an ocean view (as requested), to great wine recommendations, insanely good food, friendly and funny staff, it was such a great experience. Even at 10.30pm on a rainy Friday night, being the last two couples in the restaurant, we were still offered the opportunity to delay out dessert if we wished. Such an exceptional place and can't wait to come back AGAIN!

We were not able to get a table over the Christmas period as this restaurant was booked out, however on a recent girls weekend I was able to get a Friday night booking and Rick Shores did not disappoint, in fact we will return and not just for dinner, but for cocktails and brunch. We are based in Melbourne, and have a place up here near Main Beach and this place is definitely worth the drive. I would go back here just for the Morton Bay Bug rolls. The views are great and so is the shared plates and cocktails. Melburnian foodies need to try this restaurant if staying on the coast, it won't disappoint.

AFTER READING REVIEWS IN THE COURIER-MAIL, WE EXPECTED MUCH MORE. HAVING BEEN TO THE FISH HOUSE ON PREVIOUS STAYS ON THE COAST, WE DECIDED ON A CHANGE. THE WHOLE RIC SHORES EXPERIENCE WAS TOTALLY UNDER-WHELMING.THE ENTRANCE,GREETING, AND AMBIENCE WAS DISAPPOINTING. THE BANQUET SELECTION WAS NOT AS EXCITING AS WE WERE TOLD BY THE WAIT STAFF.
