    Food service was good. Waiter only poured wine when the bottle was opened, after that we had to pour our own. If we can’t bring our own bottle and have to pay top price for wine, waiters should do this. Dumplings and gyozas were tasty but cold and pastry tough. The size of the scallops was hideous, no more than size of 2 dollar coin. If that’s all that’s available then they would best left off the menu. Or is it cutting down on portions to make better profit!!! Overall not a great experience and we brought visitors from out of town.

    Staff were friendly however it seemed like there wasn't enough of them and they were too busy. Service was slow and we often sat for long periods waiting for drinks or for the table to be cleared etc. Food was nice but slow in coming out.

    Always love the food at Shore House. Pretty good ambience, usually quite busy but the service is good and staff are friendly and helpful. You can choose from indoor or outdoor dining. Great for occasions. Nice breeze flows through as well so it's not too hot there. Would definitely recommend.

    Enjoyable lunch with good food. Will definitely go back. Chicken thigh dish could have done with a little more chicken but good flavours through out. Prawn soldiers were yummy and even though I don’t normally like dumplings these were tasty, well cooked and served with a nice creamy and tasty sauce. Can’t wait to go back and try something different.

    Hi all we had a wonderful experience, as it was my sons birthday. The service was brilliant, as it was a very busy night. The food was top notch, the only critique was the Prawn Pad Thai. Which i felt, the dish was a little strong on the fish sauce. It's still a nice dish. The Shorehouse is a very cosy restaurant to dine in with wonderful views. Definitely recommended to family and friends 4 star rating.

    Food was excellent. One of the waiters was clumsy and spilled water over my partner. The waiter laughed it off. I thought it was a little rude to laugh it off. She did apologise but it didn't seem sincere.

    This was our first time visiting Shorehouse and it was amazing. We will be back. The only down side is that once all our food was delivered not a single server came to our table again. We wanted to order more food and drinks. But ended up leaving instead.

    The ‘Just Feed Me’ dining option is the way to go. You get a little bit of all the menu favourites and you don’t leave feeling hungry. Food is amazing. Was a bit noisy inside and our drinks waiter was a little scarce although it was a busy Saturday night. Air con works great for the NQ heat.

    Outside dining a must if you can score a spot on the deck to enjoy the magic Townsville winter. Tasty food; Get the beef cheeks and the crispy eggplant, our faves! Lots of friendly helpful servers however cocktails were a bit slow coming to the table. Looking forward to next time.

    Very disappointed, after being in hospitality for over 30 years we were pushed and hustled to order and to hurry up. We were seated 20 mins late from our booking and then was told to order asap as the kitchen wanted to close, it was just after 9pm. After ordering all our meals they all came at once and it was hard to enjoy the cusine. We discussed this with the manager and were instantly dismissed and not valued. If something is happening or you can not accommodate the booking don’t take it, or at least have better customer service to smooth the issue over.
