A great place to settle in for a quiet drink then stay on for lunch or dinner. The location and view over the marina is perfect with indoor or outdoor seating available. We stayed for dinner and found the food to be good quality and average prices. A large selection of drinks available in comfortable relaxed surroundings.

I’ve lived in Cairns for thirty years now and dined at this place several times. The location is great overlooking the boats but the food here is poor, pre packaged chicken schnitzel that are flavourless and uncooked vegetables,tasteless nachos,and hopeless selection for vegetarians. Top restaurant prices and average service. Fine venue for a drink with mates but avoid the food.

Hello. We feel your review is not for our venue, The Bluewater Bar & Grill in Trinity Park.
We do not serve nachos and our chicken schnitzel is very obviously hand-made from scratch, not packaged. We also have quite a number of vegetarian options. Is it possible your experience was at the Yorkeys Knob Boat Club?

Easy wining and dining on the deck overlooking a small marina. Locals eat and play here. That's a good sign. Friendly staff and a well stocked wine shop with favourites. Book your table for Friday nights especially.

We as a family group of 9 stayed down the road for a week so this became the place of choice for coffees, lunch and dinner.

This a really nice place, great outdoor deck and views of the marina. Décor is clean and they even have a small play area for kids. During our visit we saw all sorts enjoying themselves, couples, families and larger groups.

They have a courtesy bus which is a good idea and also small number of pokies which were used by a few of our group.

Food is nice and reasonably priced. The standout is the Seafood Platter. I had the Pork Belly one night that wasn't reheated all the way through, but still tasty.

There are in my opinion 2 negatives. Part of the outdoor deck is for smoking but as there are no walls around this area if the wind blows the wrong way everyone gets to share it!!! Saw a few people move tables to escape the smell. And whilst I am happy to go to the bar for drinks, I think given the prices and décor, lining up to order your food detracts from the overall experience.

Would certainly go back if I was in the area, and now know to sit far away from the smoking area.
