When you eat in pubs like the Bayswater you're not expecting Michelin star food - just good quality, good value food. This is what we got. Two dishes, including a steak, for 56 A$ that were quite edible, and provided a fantastic view of the ocean. Add to that a decent pint (well, schooner), and what more do you want?

I really would like to give them a good review. I enjoy having a drink there - but will never return for the food. Great location - food overpriced and well below average. Whiting fillets - greasy and overcooked. Veal rack - chewy and overcooked. The jus was over reduced. Very saly and inedible. I don't expect high quality from... More

This place has a beaut location (it's attached to a relatively new resort overlooking the ocean) and is quite well furnished, but after three disappointing visits , enough is enough, I won't be back! The bar staff do a good job, but the drinks are more expensive than in any other bar in Hervey Bay that I have visited. The... More

This is a lovely spot for a cold drink and a meal on the verandah overlooking Urangan Pier and across to Fraser Island. The food is good and presented beautifully.

A gorgeous location and restaurant but unfortunately it's very much let down by its good. Very overpriced and and when we let the staff know our oysters arrived COLD, the man was quite rude. Go for a cocktail, not a meal.

As guests staying at The Oceans Resort next door to Bayswater Hotel, we visited twice a day. Lucky for us, this establishment was family friendly and fabulous views of the ocean front. A great spot to have a drink or two after a Pier walk, but also great for lunch & dinner. The salads are hearty and so so tasty.... More

Great spot right across from the water, relaxed atmosphere, and a good spot to spend the afternoon. The staff were friendly and happy to accommodate. The meals were big, fresh and good value. Plenty of parking within walking distance.

Unfortunately again the food was a let down , so bad this time that we didn't finish our meals and asked for a refund , this wasn't a problem and the staff were very apologetic, we frequently eat there but not anymore , not sure what's going at the Bayswater it's not like it once was ! Disappointed
