Great spot for a meal and get-together with friends and family.
Table service was excellent
Meal (three of us had the Feed Me) was really delicious, enabling us to try a number of dishes
Creme brûlée was to die for
We celebrated our son’s 40th and he really was very happy with the night
Thank you

Varied menu with options that cater for all dietary requirements. The just feed me menu is perfect for the indecisive and excellent value!

We have eaten there before and it has been spectacular but we were not impressed by the food on Sunday. Dumplings were a bit dry and turmeric potato’s undercooked. Very disappointed for my birthday dinner.

We dined on a Wednesday evening and the food presented tapas style made our dining experience fun. Every menu choice we made was delicious and well presented. Enjoyed the lamb ribs, chilli prawns, guacamole tacos, tumeric potatoes, asian greens and desserts. Service was excellent - the staff were friendly, knowledgeable and efficient. Relaxing ambience, interesting decor and outside deck diners have a pleasant sea view. Great dining experience all round. Look forward to going back soon.

Love going here for a nice meal. Food is always great. Sometimes though it is so noisy you cant hold a conversation with the person next to you with cups and cutlery clattering and everyone talking loud trying to be heard.

Amazing taste food. We had the sample menu for two and it was delicious (beef cheek to die for). Top service across the board from wait staff to bar staff. We will definitely be going back more regularly 😀

We were celebrating 32 years married and the staff were very accommodating, polite and cheerful making for an exceptional evening. We settled for the "Just Feed Me" (Tapas style) banquet and what an experience. The food was amazing and plentiful and what we couldn't eat, containers were offered to take home. Highly recommended and we will re-visit.

The food was outstanding at the Shorehouse and the service was great. But the noise level was too high for an intimate evening with my wife. It was obvious that everyone was having a good time but I couldn’t hear very well as I have industrial deafness.

The venue was lovely.
The issue was that the Tuesday set menu just wasn’t a wow for me in any way.
Stir fry and baked chicken for mains just was underwhelming. This isn’t anything I can’t make at home, when I go to a restaurant like this I expect something I can’t or won’t make at home... if it something as simple as this, it needs to be 💥 mind blowingly amazing.
It wasn’t.
Would I go again? Yes but never again on a Tuesday night.

This is the best restaurant in Townsville, my absolute favorite. The food is phenomenal, the staff are next level in service, and I love being a part of the atmosphere created at Shorehouse. Their feed me menu is divine if you can’t decide from their delicious choices and you will find you have to return to taste everything.
