"Called in for evening dinner on route to our destination being Noosa. I had the Morton Bay gnocchi. Omg !!!! To die for. Husband's meal also spot on. Service was outstanding. Great location. Great view. Clean and on trend venue. Highly recommend this place for a great meal. Not a pub meal definitely restaurant standard."
"Hidden in amongst the new Brightwater estate near Sippy Downs, the Brightwater Hotel is a little gem! Trivia Wednesday nights is a fun alternative to a dinner out on the coast. It starts at 6:30, we got there at 6 and managed to get a table outside - right on the water, a beautiful sunset, we couldn't have gotten luckier. They have cheaper meals on Wednesdays too - pizza and pasta and a few different alternatives approx $15-20. The service was great and meals came out pretty quickly considering how busy it was, maybe 10-15 mins wait. Highly recommend if you're up for something a little different!"
"Great meal with a view to die for. Great steak and kids meals were huge really enjoyed the meal here and we will return."
"We love the Brightwater. The food is always great, the staff are always friendly. The sunset is gorgeous across the lake..."
"A group of us decided to try this hotel and it was great. Perfect location near the lake so we chose a table outside. Service was good although main meals are ordered at the bar. Excellent range of choices and some real specials. Friendly no fuss casual dining. Very enjoyable."
"I just wanted to thank you so much for all the help with Sandy's 50th Birthday. She had a wonderful time and as did everyone else. The food was amazing! and being right near the kids area was fantastic for the parents with young kids. Once again thank you so much, was such a wonderful afternoon. "

"We are locals in Mooloolaba and we are super impressed every time we visit. It's easy at this time of year to be overwhelmed with Xmas parties, but you guys have an awesome system and congrats to Kitchen, Management, and all involved. Cheers"
"The Brightwater Hotel is situated at Mountain Creek not more than a few minutes from Mooloolaba beach. But why venture there when you can relax in the courtyard of the Brightwater Hotel overlooking the relaxing view of the man-made lake. As the sun goes down you can enjoy a great meal from the restaurant and a cold drink from the bar all at a reasonable price. This restaurant is children friendly with a glassed playroom inside where you can always see them enjoying themselves."
"The staff are very friendly and very obliging. Be warned this is a very popular venue and bookings are essential. Other great features of the Brightwater Hotel are a great gaming room with all the new pokies, a great sports bar and a Lakeside function room that caters for weddings, forums etc. The WOW factor is definitely real when you step into the Brightwater Hotel, enjoy."
"Always find the staff to be friendly and very helpful. Meals are good sized servings and delicious. Atmosphere is great, especially at night time overlooking the beautiful lake. Definitely a great place to bring the family for a meal, including the kids."
"I would like to thank your staff for putting on such a wonderful night for the 21st event. In particular, I would like to commend Candi on her services and kindness to myself and all guests throughout the night. All staff showed professionalism and were of great service in addressing all of the guests needs. Very impressed with The Lakehouse service and set up. Would highly recommend."
"Stopped in for a quick lunch break and beer. Just had simple pub food but what really stood out was the friendliness of the staff and the beautiful view out over the lake. It was just a nice spot to sit relax and unwind."
"The Brightwater Hotel sits beside the lake and has great dining options inside and out. Lovely view and a good atmosphere. My lunch was delicious, mains are from around $18-$26. There is also a lunch special menu for $15. All the meals were good with generous servings. The staff were attentive and checked to see we were happy with the meals. I've been out a bit recently but this was definitely the best lunch I've had for a while. Compliments to the chef."
"While obviously not the locale for fine dining, The Brightwater Tavern does what it does well. The staff are always friendly. The venue is always clean and tidy. The setting is excellent with expansive decks overlooking the lake. All our meals were excellent and especially my Osso Bucco Gnocchi was so so good!"
"Thank you so much for the wonderful job you did in helping make my Son’s Family Birthday Dinner so successful. He was so surprised and he had no idea about it. "
"The food was absolutely wonderful!!! Everyone complimented both my husband and myself and said what a wonderful venue. The room was beautiful and well set up. Rachel did everything she could to make everything go well. It was so nice of Rachel to bring out the Jenga game for one of our 11 year old guests and she had a great time playing with it while everyone was arriving."
"The main meal was delicious and everyone said how nice the steak was cooked and how nice the chicken schnitzel was. What wonderful serves of food we all had. Everyone couldn’t get over the beautiful pavlova and how great it tasted. The only thing was no one wanted cake because they were all too full, so I made people take cake home with them for the next day."
"Kellie, thank you for all your help in answering all my questions and getting back to me so promptly. And..... the verdict from everyone - “We will be back again to enjoy more delicious food and to soak up the lovely atmosphere.” Well done to all and please thank the chef, the kitchen people and the bar people for making our night such a success."
"Have recently moved to the area and have visited the hotel a few times. Each time, whether its for a few drinks, a meal or a catch up the service of the staff has been exceptional. My compliments also go to the kitchen staff who provide and outstanding meal/food each and every time. I now bring all of my visitors to the hotel and enjoy the surroundings. Thank you so much and keep up the great work!"
"Again thank you! I have worked in hospitality, as has my sister, and we are both blown away by the quality of service from yourself and Elise as well as the quality of food when we ate at the restaurant last week. It was a 20/10!!"
"Just a big thank you for Saturday night! We had such a fantastic night and your staff were great - could not speak any higher for them and food people are still talking about especially the pizzas!! Stephen behind the bar was just awesome he ran the bar with no problems and all our guests commented on how he ran such a great bar don't lose him... We will be coming to your hotel as much as possible. I just feel you need to know you are running a fantastic team of people and hotel. Once again thank you."
"I just wanted to highly recommend the Brightwater Hotel for its wonderful atmosphere, food, service and staff attitudes after holding a dinner there for 25 people for my son's 18th birthday. Whilst most other places were so uptight about it being for an 18th, the staff at the Brightwater couldn't do enough to help which made for a really great evening. Thank you :)"
"I have been a patron of the Brightwater Hotel for over 6 months and would like to say that the people you have employed are a credit not only to your ability to attract talent, but to deliver a great overall experience to all people who visit your hotel. I would like to inform you that I myself run a retail establishment that employs over 140 staff and I find myself in awe of the amount of happy staff that I run into every time I frequent your hotel."
"10 out of 10! One of the best venues I've been to on the Coast. Our experience on 4 seperate occasions has been great food, professional & helpful staff, lovely venue, and a great atmosphere. I've recommended Brightwater Hotel to others who have also had the same experience. Well done :)"

"We had a most enjoyable time and a delicious Lunch at Brightwater Hotel today. For most of us it was our first visit there and we all plan to revisit soon. The décor is beautiful! And the choice of menu was good and service was very pleasant, smiling staff was excellent. Thanks again"
"My family and I went to Brightwater last night for dinner, we have previously been for lunch. We had a most enjoyable evening, we all loved our meals, my 8 year old son was raving about his cheese burger kids meal in the car on the way home, the biggest he has ever received when we go out to dinner he said. He loved the kids room, it is now his favourite pub of choice for birthday dinners, previously his favourite was the Caloundra RSL because of their kids club. From an adults point of view, great staff, great meal, we love the ambience of the hotel. We have now found our go to hotel when we want somewhere nice for lunch or dinner. We have no hesitation in recommending Brightwater to all our friends. Thanks again"
"Last Saturday May 9th I was attending a function in your Pontoon room and would like to pass on my thanks to all the staff that helped make an amazing memorable event . In particular, I would like to compliment you on the food that was served, I did notice that you had 2 other functions on as well as a full restaurant, and yet the food we were served was fresh and delivered hot and promptly via smiling and charming staff. As the owner of a catering business with over 30 years in Hospitality, I know that sometimes functions can be a bit hap hazard and rushed, this however was not the case at your venue. It was like we were the only ones requiring service. Please pass on my thanks to all the floor and kitchen staff for reminding me that local hotels can still provide A grade service."
