Kick back on the elevated balcony as you tuck into the freshest bruschetta and oysters Kirkpatrick in town. Known for their summery menu and huge portions, it's no wonder that most guests here become regulars after their first visit. If you and your special someone have a penchant for the pescatarian then share the 1770 seafood platter as you gaze moonily into one another’s eyes and think about babies. The platter serves two and features king prawns, Moreton Bay bugs, pacific natural oysters, sea bay scallops, calamari and reef fish served with salad and chips, and can also be ordered to serve one — for all the lonely lovers out there. 

Rusty Pelican

‘If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it’ seems to be the mantra behind fish and chip royalty the Rusty Pelican. And judging by the queues of loyal and hungry customers along the marina, it seems to be working a treat for them. With a classic, tried and true fish and chippery menu and a patio adjacent to the dock there’s a lot to love about this family owned and run joint. These guys know where to draw the line at oiling and salting, so you can rest assured that every bite of your briny and battered tucker will be fresh, light and succulent. All I can say is get down early to get your hands on the freshest catch of the day!

1770 Japanese

1770 Japanese serve katsu to rival those found in Niseko, which should come as no surprise when I tell you that this little gem is run by a big city chef with over 25 years of experience in Japan. These guys bring authentic flavour, generous servings and traditional Japanese hospitality to the small-town charm of Seventeen Seventy. Stop by one evening to chow down on mouthwatering handmade gyozas, the freshest sushi in town or their signature Agnes roll. Keep in mind that 1770 Japanese accept cash payments only, so don’t forget to make a pit stop at the ATM en route!

Codie’s Place

Located in the heart of Agnes Water, Codie’s Place might also be the coolest place in town. Pizza and pasta may be their specialty, but they also boast a fabulous menu of cocktails, host the occasional gig, and exude extremely surfy vibes. Settle into this little slice of Italy with a Huey’s pizza (double ham, double pineapple, and mozzarella) and a spicy margarita. As Queen of Eataly Lizzie McGuire once famously said, ‘hey now, hey now, this is what dreams are made of’.

Drift & Wood

If you’re in town on a Sunday drift into Drift & Wood to be serenaded by live music as you tuck into their crowd-pleasing and delectable menu. This is another great option for pizza lovers, but with a little more on offer. If pizza isn’t your thing get started with the arancini balls and garlic flatbread (essential to any remotely Italian meal) then dig into the porterhouse steak, the vegan stack or the barramundi for mains. To best embrace the holiday mode of Far North Queensland indulge in a tropical cocktail laced with Kraken Spiced Rum!
