We were greeted rather brusquely and told there’d be a surcharge despite this not being on the online booking site. The emphasis seemed on establishing this and making sure we’d be finished by the next booking rather than welcoming us. Later staff attending the table were more pleasant and attentive. The food was generous but the sorbet desert was disappointing- tasting more like a slushy. Could do better for the price and location.

Flinders is a beautiful area. Staying at Quarters and eating at Flinders Hotel was a great weekend. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay and meals.

Thought the food was very basic for the price
A little noisy, good ambience, service not special

2 orders of Seafood Linguine excellent as usual, mother-in-law wanted a smaller meal of calamari, was tough and bland, disappointing for her first meal here. But we will be back for linguine

We loved our night out at the Deck!
The food was amazing and the service was fantastic! Sitting by the fireplace kept us toasty and warm on what was a chilly foggy night.

The restaurant was very cold, we needed our jackets on to eat dinner. Service was friendly, though food was average. Might have just been an off night.

Different interesting ingredients used well. The restaurant was justifiably busy on a Thursday night. I would just like to see a few more local wines available by the glass to rate higher.

I had accidentally booked the wrong day and they were very accommodating and still squeezed our party of eight into the place. Fabulous meals and wonderful head waitstaff made it a very special night for our table.

Had a booking and had to wait 15 minutes for someone that had “the ipad “ before we could be sat at our table that was booked.
Then had a wait for menus, drinks order and drinks to arrive (they sat at the bar)

As usual the food and ambience is exactly what we have come to expect at The Deck. Great. But last night the service was outstanding. The weather turned very cold and the only booking we chad been able to secure was an outside table. After bringing us blankets, and showing concern for our comfort, despite the fact that we were trying to put a brave face on to the situation, we were suddenly rescued to an inside table. Someone had not turned up. The food that followed amply made up for the discomfort we had suffered. Cannot recommend highly enough.

Food nice, too many chips. hubby ordered steak did not fancy the butter that went with it asked if he could have garlic butter instead. Only to find he was charged $2 extra for that. Go figure??

The food was amazing - as usual. We were in a quiet area that was very new, it was lovely and suited our needs of space for a high chair and a pram, so we were not in anyone's way. Service was great, we are regular's of Flinders Hotel and always recommend it to friends.

We had a great 'get out of jail' Sunday lunch at The Flinders Hotel. The food was good (they mucked up our order a little but it was quickly resolved) and the service fantastic. Looking forward to returning to experience their French Pop-Up dining.

Waiters were very helpful and ambience was good. Kids meals were good value for money. However, the main meals were lacking in both value for money and taste. My husband had the kingfish and it came with no sides, just sauce and an over cooked piece of fish. My steak was one of the worst I’ve tasted. Overcooked and almost tasted broiled not pan seared. No sides except a small basket of chips, no salad or veggies. In fairness, the wait staff did offer to change it for something else or recook another steak, but everyone had their food and were nearly done so I said no. It was suggested that it might be because I didn’t have the sauce with it but I never do, and I see the sauce on a steak as an accompaniment to enhance flavour not to hide bad taste. Won’t be coming back in a hurry and if I do I definitely won’t be be ordering the $43 steak!!

Great service and very attentive. Couldn't fault our meals.
One thing to consider is "Mocktails" for none drinkers, having a cocktail for mothers day was great, but don't drink.
Expand the menu a bit.
