Manly Boathouse is a iconic restaurant situated on the break wall in manly Qld.

The Boat House has a seafood focus where produce is cooked over local timber on a custom made bbq.

We are thrilled to be working with one of QLD'S best chefs, Braden White whose cooking style is to use the best local and sustainable ingredients and keep the flavours simple let the ingredient speak for its self.

Our kitchen is open from 11:30am for lunch through till dinner 7 days a week.

    Arrogant approach to larger bookings is surprising but appears more common in hospitality nowadays like they are doing us a favour to be open and take our business. On the day itself, staff were friendly and helpful so a real turnaround. Thank you for the good experience when it ultimately mattered.

    As a newly arrived Queenslander this was our first visit to Manly Boathouse Restaurant and were surprised to find car parking spaces available. And the restaurant didn't disappoint. Every staff member was friendly, polite and attentive. We were given the best table in the room and as we had booked early for dinner were able to take advantage of the vista. Although the restaurant was very busy and full our service was swift and our food and drink orders arrived promptly. Between us we had fresh oysters, Morton Bay bug slider, popcorn chicken, garlic sourdough, scallop risotto, barramundi and the fish of the day-snapper in a Thai green curry sauce. All were well presented and tasty. We had a lovely, friendly evening in a welcoming restaurant and will now become regular visitors.

    Good food and service, however feels like you are getting rushed out as they just pump them out.

    Noise level too much to be able to hold a conversation. Food presentation requires improvement. Price was a little expensive for what it was worth.

    We have loved dining at this restaurant since it opened. The food and service is always the absolute best. To be seated close to the water with amazing views tops off the experience.

    Had our family Christmas lunch here for the first time. Great food, wonderful service and a view to die for. The boathouse will be our new tradition for family Christmas number #1

    Great food and service - but far too noisy. Couldn’t even have a conversation at your table.
