Arrived early for dinner and had a beer and "best ever" lemon lime & bitters. Young guy made it and it was outstanding. Dinner was very good. Lots of space in the restaurant. Rate the pork belly dish highly

Staff don’t listen to orders wine or food, had to keep correcting them. $27 for 6x oysters kilpatrick they were the size of my thumb nail, and the sauce on them no idea what it was, but wasn’t bbq of any sort. Don’t do crumbed...steak as a meal but do it in a sandwich…. What ever, and the chicken parmy was soggy served with Deb mash and I asked for salad but got coleslaw, can’t stand the stuff. Also I had to chase up the gravy. Never will retun been disappointed twice now.More

Excellent food that warrants being a little pricey. A nice dining room environment, and we loved that drinks from the bar could also be ordered from the waitress. The toilets were good for a pub. The highlight of everything though was the twice cooked pork...belly with several unusual other components that made it the most delicious pork belly dish i can remember having. It was amazing!More

I made a reservation for my Birthday Dinner for a table of 20ppl. I requested a table inside due to the weather and so we would have the nice area with table service. I phoned confirmed the booking by phone, once when I made the...booking, and today to confirm numbers. When we arrived for dinner they had no record of my booking.More

Very basic menu and basic food Returned to Bowen for a visit to find that GV has gone down hill as far as menu, ordered a pizza got a dry burnt tasteless pizza with inadequate topping. Chicken snitzel and chips no salad no toppings were...included, entree available was limited and basic.Staff could have been more friendly. Wont be visiting again not worth the money.More

We had been having our evening drinks every night at this lovely pub during our visit to Bowen, then decided to extend our stay one night so we could do dinner at Musical Bingo last Wednesday night. Are we glad we did! The bistro dinner...was amazing - my husband took the spaghetti and asked to add prawns, not a problem, and it was such a lovely dish, he said it was the best pasta he had ever had, I would have to concur. My eye fillet with veg and mash was also excellent - beautifully cooked medium rare as requested and no boring steamed veg, instead they were roasted and so tasty. Musical Bingo is held in one of the back, outdoor sections, and it was a hoot. The compere moved it along nicely and encouraged audience participation, keeping it interesting with drink tickets as prizes. We didnt win, but had such a good time! Special note re staff - everyone is so lovely and cant do enough for you. We will be back to Bowen, it is a town with heart & soul and the Grand View is in the centre of that!More

Popped in for dinner and drinks… The hotel was nice, the drinks cold and the staff friendly… The biggest surprise was the food… the menu is odd… the descriptions are also a bit left of centre… but the taste is excellent. I had the pork...belly and the wife had the Spanish prawns…there was nothing Spanish about them…but they were tasty. Definitely worth the effortMore

Made a booking for lunch, drove 50mins to have lunch with family, turned up on time only to be told our table had been given to someone else who had just walked in without a booking. Food was very disappointing, kids spaghetti looked and tasted...like tin food. The nachos with pulled beef were the worst nachos I have ever had, paid an extra $5 for the pulled beef which was not much and looked like rubber, very tough to eat. The only decent thing was the cold beers. Definitely would not recommend for a nice meal.More
