Hurricane Grill and Bar
This steakhouse is a fairly new branch of a restaurant chain that is known and loved in Australia. Take a seat at one of the many tables and enjoy views of the beautiful beach. The simple and industrial decor and style of the interior serves to highlight what is special about the eatery: the food.
Take your pick from the menu that will have your mouth watering. Try the famous ribs and steaks, which are 100 per cent free range and grain fed, and coated in a rich basting sauce. Other great dishes to try are the seafood platter, which is created from fresh and quality produce; spicy barbecue Portuguese chicken; burgers; and skewers. Whatever you choose, it's sure to be delicious.
Hard Rock Cafe
This restaurant is a classic. Many things make this place special: the classic music memorabilia on display throughout the space, the live performances and the food. The climate, beach right next door, easy-going layout and friendly staff also prove to make this spot a winner.
If you're unsure about what to choose, the hickory smoked chicken wings, burgers and steaks have a reputation of their own for being beyond delicious. The legendary Aussie burger is made with melted cheddar cheese, caramelised onions, crispy bacon, beetroot and finished off with a fried egg.
Hog's Breath Cafe
This chain of steakhouses has been loved by Australians since 1989 when the first grill opened in Queensland. Atmosphere, style, service and food come together to create a unique dining experience that's casual and friendly.
The prime rib steak is a signature dish and a must-try. The meat is slow cooked for at least 18 hours, and is then cooked at a high temperature to seal in the flavour and give a chargrilled finish. They're said to be some of the most tender and delicious ribs and steak in the country. Try with a side of vegetables or a salad, along with Hog Tail Fries, or baked or mashed potato.
Finish off your meal with something sweet. The Hoggies Sundae Bar will sort you out with a sumptuous ice cream sundae. Choose from Grandma's Trifle Sundae, which incorporates flavours of vanilla, strawberry, cake and whipped cream, the rich and chocolaty Black Forest Sundae, or go for the Hoggies Rocky Road Sundae to share – this dessert combines all of your favourite flavours in a huge portion perfect to share with your loved ones.
Benihana Japanese Steakhouse
This restaurant combines what is loved about steakhouses with an authentic Japanese twist. As the largest specialist teppanyaki restaurant in Australia, it's a popular place in the area that makes eating out an experience.
Witness the pure talent and expertise of professional chefs as they cook your meal right before you. With flair and flourish, they will whip up your steak, seafood or chicken. With every meal, you'll get a prawn appetiser, hibachi vegetables, salad topped with the distinctive Benihana dressing and steamed rice. If you and two other people feel like a feast try Samurai. This is fillet steak, chicken and prawns served with mixed sushi and ice cream.
Pair your meal with one of the many wines from the beverage menu, or try sake for something more authentic.
