We went on a Thursday night for the Seafood buffet and were very pleased with the variety of dishes and the quality of the food. The seafood was delicious and the roast meat was tender and moist. There were ample salads and vegetables to accompany them and we also enjoyed the desserts. It was excellent value.

On 14 March 2017 I visited Brothers restaurant (Lanterns) for dinner with family. It's the first time I have been there and I'm sorry to say it will be the last. The buffet food tasted very bland and the quality was poor. The roast beef was tough and just about every hot dish had little taste. It gave me the... More

If you want a quiet and cool place to have a meal in hot days. This is a good choice. With under $30 per person in a popular tourism destination, they have a good variety of food and great service.

The variety and volume of beautiful foods were sensational. Staff were very friendly and quick to clean plates away for the next round. My favourite part was the desert bar which I always try and leave room for, the lovely variety of deserts are amazing especially the pour your own soft self serve ice-cream. They even have a pancake machine... More

The food was great. We enjoy driving from Mareeba just to have a family meal. Great atmosphere and the live entertainment was really good as well. Well worth the visit.

I came here expecting a quality buffet only to be disappointed with tasteless and bland choice of food. This wasn't a $20 pp buffet and advertised seafood which was what initially caught my attention, however the seafood was frozen prawns that were White and tiny and mussels that had no flavour. I think this buffet is set up for the... More

Poor variety and selection of foods. Some of the dishes were dry as they had been sitting out for a long duration of time. Poor option for dinner and I would not recommended this buffet at all.

The club looked nice. The food was disgraceful. Dirty cutlery and plates. Food that was such poor quality, no one at our table of 8 could eat it. The prawns smelt and tasted 'poison' such a strange overpowering smell and taste. I can only say that we aren't fussy eaters but the food served at the 'all you can eat'... More
