All groups of 10 or more are catered for by professional on-site caterers. Special menu plans, including seafood buffets and barbecues, can be arranged.

The two front dining areas command wonderful views of Moreton Bay and its surrounds. These areas are utilised by groups as a place to eat, relax and gather socially. Facing north-west, it is a perfect place to watch the sun set over the Bay and to unwind at the end of the day.
