Food and service were fantastic. Lamb rump was massive and delicious and my partner really enjoyed the parma.
Table service is very unusual for a pub. Prices very reasonable. Good wine list. Just a bit noisy but definitely recommend '

The calamari was thick and fresh. I really enjoyed the flavour and how it was a gluten-free option.
It's great to see that they have multiple options for gluten-free - entrees, mains, kids, senior and desserts have a good variety of gluten-free options which is great to see at a place like this.

The staff were nice! However; the food was awful, we couldn't eat it. It's just really disappointing especially because I had high expectations for an up and coming beach pub. I thought it would be better, but I guess I was wrong. The fish and chips were (extremely) oily, and my friend had the pork pie which was really dry and with little meat. Not worth the money! Big disappointment!!! I highly recommend the Inlet Pub instead!

Typical Oz pub style hotel with decent selection of alcoholic beverages and average food. Service is good and attentive though. My personal rating for this place is 4.0

Wow this was a pleasant surprise to find. We had a great lunch. Scallops were amazing. Beetroot salad was really fresh and nice. The salmon entree was interesting although I'm not a fan of the crumbed poached egg. The burgers were loved by all. Service was good. This is not a typical pub style menu. It's a step above. Def worth a visit and I would def return

Nice meals and great service right in the heart of town.

We walked in for a lunchtime meal here and went to the bistro. Spacious and open our server Dom was attentive and excellent in providing rapid and accurate service with great recommendations.

We ordered the beef burger, espy chicken burger, the curry of the day (Moroccan lamb) and the kids calamari.

Not a complaint on the table with sizes being just right, flavours excellent and not bad price for the quality.

I finished with the creme brulle which was presented nicely and tasted just as good.

Big shout out to tall Dom there for his excellent service and chilled yet professional approach.

Awesome food and fantastic service!
This place was absolutely packed when we arrived on the weekend for lunch. Although we did not have a booking the staff were very accommodating and found us a great table to dine at.
We ordered the Baja Fish Tacos, the KFC (Kentucky Fried Cauliflower) and the Beetroot Salad to share.
With how busy this place was and the amount of food coming out of the kitchen, we were pleasantly surprised at how quickly it arrived and at how great the meals were! Absolutely delicious and the Beetroot Salad was not what we expected - it was way better!
Again, with the staff being so busy but yet so helpful (in particular Sam who was friendly, informative and an absolute star!), you can tell it's a team effort here.
Would definitely recommend this place and we will definitely be back!!

They were very busy on this night. We had a table for 10, had to wait a long time for dinner. I don't hold that against them at all. Food was good?. They were aware of the long wait, so let us off paying for 2 meals that were later than the others.

Great place to grab a feed! Located in a fantastic location within walking distance to the beach and the local shops. The staff were all super friendly and very helpful. And the service was also super quick! The food was great, with plenty of options on the menu. And the kids were happy to see a small playground area to keep them entertained for hours! The prices I believe were okay, at about the normal expected prices for a hotel feed. To make things even better, there is a bottle shop right next door. Big shout out to all the staff! Thank you for the great hospitality. Because of you guys, myself and the family will be back for more! Be sure to also grab yourself a stubbie holder from either the hotel or the bottle shop drive-through next door.

A solid beach-side, country pub. We have eaten here a handful of times over seperate trips to Inverloch with our most recent being this past weekend.
With a decent menu and good wine list, all parties were catered for. As others have mentioned, it does get a little loud and difficult to hear during busy times. Playground is small and I had to pull my three-year old out when it got busy as kids were on top of one another.
Service was lovely, warm and efficient. We will be back!

We have just had dinner at the hotel and we both agree it's the best fish we have eaten in many years. We had the Seniors option, everything was hot, crispy and well presented. huge servings for Seniors. Great service from the girls, we will be back. Thank you. ???

We ate here during winter, the family bistro was a third full I'd say.. the service was nice, the food was nice, fresh and quick. The chips were a generous serving but would want to be for $9 as a side.
Sea food was fresh and delicious.
Nice seating out the front. A small kids play area, enough to distract them but it's very small..

This place really needs some proper hospitality training for employees. We've been here multiple times, yet every time there had been serious attitude issues from the staff members.
The first time they over charged us 14 dollars on the bill, then as we raised the issue, we were told that's how it is, and received plenty of eye rolling from the staff member.
The second time the meals were cold, lamb, broccoli were both cold, only roast potatoes were hot. We were asked how our meals are, so we mentioned the meals were cold, yet the waitress rolled her eyes at us and walked away. We requested for some extra serviettes, the waitress rolled her eyes again, walked off and waved her hands at us said use the ones on the table (which weren't enough). Our drinks were taken away without being asked whether we are still going or not. Then we called manager to give some feedback about all of these, yet received more eye rolling. We were told if drinks got taken away, they can simply refill, which isn't the point, as the point is the poor manner from staff.
Just to clarify, there were two girls there were very humble and with great attitude, but some others including the manager really need to probably have some review on their hospitality training. Rolling eyes at people when people are talking or communicating professionally isn't an acceptable manner. We are both respected doctors who are used to interact with people with manner and respect, it was quite shocking to have this kind of experience multiple times within a few days. The first time we took it as an accident, everyone makes mistakes, but when things like this happen multiple times, maybe it's the time the Inverloch Esplanade Hotel management to look into this a bit more seriously.

Had the best burger and chips. The service was good, not too noisy. Inverloch is a lovely beach town.

Standard Aussie pub. Good selection of drinks and food is pretty good too. Staff are super friendly, super efficient, and attentive. There's a kids' playground in the bistro, and the inevitable gaming area is sufficiently removed from the bistro that it's hardly noticeable.
It is noisy, and a little pricey.

Staff were very friendly especially the gentleman that took our order. He checked our meals were ok. He was funny & attentive to a few different tables.
Food was delicious & a good portion for being a seniors meal. We loved our lunch & visit to Hotel & Inverloch.

Dog friendly outside dinning. Pub lunch was as I ordered. Nothing too exciting. Ordering food by their QR system didn't work for me. Staff happy to help though. Friendly staff. Offered water for our dog. Happy with this service.

Bustling, modern pub with lovely staff. Kids spaghetti bol & calamari went down a treat as well as my nice crispy skinned salmon, unfortunately the beef burger let hubby down as not much flavour other than some cheese and mince patty. Drinks were good.

Decent pub grub. Tasty steak, sauce was average, chips & salad were excellent. Sports Bar is a bit soulless and bistro was packed for school holidays, but food still came out fairly promptly.

Great cosy environment for the family and friends. Food portion was very big and their cocktails are divine. Food was also very tasty.

Good for a pub mealFriendly staff and a busy vibe on a Tuesday night - not many other options available.Personally, I think they would be better off having patrons order their own food and drinks and collect cutlery. Table service was ordinary - had to keep asking for things like cutlery, water and plates (shared entrees). There was no offer for a second drink or to order dessert. Felt like staff just wanted to get home.

The chicken burger was good a good sized meal.. Don't trust the pics on the website they are much bigger..The sports bar was good fun too.

Possibly the most soulless pub Ive encountered yet. Indeed, its as though generations of successive publicans have strived to remove every possible remaining trace of ambience that one might expect from a pub.We skipped the front bar, although a cursory inspection revealed bright lights, bent metal chairs and plastic surfaces. The back bar is a slight improvement but feels more like an upmarket airport lounge than a pub with high tables and stools next to oddly clustered sunken sofas. Confusing.

Service was great! Chloe was awesome. Food was good for Bistro food. Steak was cooked correctly but the cut was on the lower end of good.
