Delicious tasty food so fresh & yumi. Took way too long to receive drinks (cocktails) 1 drink was ordered & after an hr of waiting for it the waiter informed us they couldn’t make it. Took another 1/2 to receive replacement drink :( apart from that everything else was great 🏝👍

Third time to Rick Shores and would have to be one of the best lunch spots in Australia for quality of food, cost and location.
You can have as little or as much as you want and being virtually located on the sand at Burleigh Beach, it does not get any better.

Went there to try the rolls everyone has been telling me about. Loved them. But was amazed by the main course - duck curry (amazing) with beans and cauliflower sides (sides are massive and were so delicious).
Will definitely go back.

We had a fantastic time at Rick Shores for my partner’s birthday dinner! The food was fantastic but what really set it apart was the location, the view, and the overall ambiance of the restaurant. It was a busy night when we dined but nothing felt rushed. The staff were so friendly and helpful (shout out to Anna for being so fantastic!) and the overall vibe made for a special but also relaxed dining experience. Would 100% be back again!

We had another wonderful dining experience at rick shores. The day was beautiful so the view of the ocean was spectacular. Food was amazing and there are so many good options on the menu to pick from. The service was outstanding, we really wish we found out our waitress’ name because she was so great! She currently has a broken finger and she was such a laugh. Love it here, can’t wait to come back !!!

This restaurant is one of our first visits when we come up to
Qld from Melb. I always book in advance so as not to miss out. The views, the Rick Shores Martini together with the fabulous food particularly their tempura bug slider makes it a must visit for us. The staff are excellent and our waitress Sarah on our visit this week was absolutely delightful and knowledgeable with both food & wine suggestions. 👍

Very good lunch. Moreton Bay Bug roll was sensational, dessert enjoyable and the red curry was spicy and flavoursome

If I’m ultra critical, crab dumplings were a little bland and the duck could have been more tender.

What was good, was very, very good.

I would return and thoroughly enjoyed the experience.

Food was fantastic as always.

Negatives: took 25 mins from our reservation time to be seated; the table we were first seated at (indoors) was directly in the sun so that all 5 of us were getting sunburnt and needed hats and sunglasses indoors. The team fixed this though by relocating us to a great table as soon as one became available.

We enjoyed the feed me banquet very much. The view was gorgeous and the setting quite unique. Popular spot meant it was a bit noisy and we were fortunate we had made a booking as there were no spare tables. Looking forward to returning and trying other menu items and a sunset!

Really enjoyed our night. The food is really tasty but being our first visit got the ordering / quantities wrong so not quite enough for the 6 of us. The crab rolls were amazing starters though. The Sharing concept was explained well though. We had a great table by the window, we had about 4 different wait staff but all were great especially Shane, who was good fun. It was a long weekend so the venue was really busy, and it was very noisy but a great atmosphere. Looking forward to going back.

My wife and I had dinner at Rick Shores and could not fault any aspect of the food, service or ambience of the place. Loved each dish with the fried bug roll outstanding. Looking forward to return visit in warmer months when the window panels would be open and looking out at ocean. If you are planning holidays, book the restaurant beforehand so you don’t miss out.

We have been a few times before for lunch, mostly with friends from other places. This time it was dinner. Our friend raved about the food all during the meal, which was a set menu. This is what we have had before, but of course it had changed, so that there were plenty of new items. Everything was superb, but the duck was perhaps the least successful. Our only complaint was the canned music, which was often too loud, with an annoying deep throb that made it hard to talk.

Another amazing experience at Rick Shores. The staff here are incredible, every time. Their knowledge of the menu and wine list ensure you're more than satisfied when you leave. The atmosphere is always lively and happy, while still allowing you to each the table conversation. The views are second to none - you could not be closer to the water. Zuzanna (sorry for the spelling!) made our lunch with friends perfect and we left with new favourite wines to try at home. A dining experience at Rick Shores is worth every cent you pay for it. We're just trying to think of another special occasion to go back there to celebrate.

Terrible wine list, wines in the reasonable price bracket are only suitable for cooking and we sampled quite a few, their attempts to be different is clearly not working, portions are extremely small to the point where it is a joke considering the price of most dishes, the Japanese fried chicken and the fried beans were very nice, used to love the place but unfortunately they have decided to put profit before coustomer satisfaction,
