It’s moments like these that confirm that my life is on the right track.  Brad Pitt was spotted in some of my favourite Palladium kicks (Pallabrouse baggy), at THE SHIPWRECKED SEAFOOD BAR & GRILL in Airlie Beach.  Hell to the yes!  Who ever knew all these great things could merge into one massive piece of awesome?  I hope I still have this much style when I’m 50.  I also hope they got better service than Trip Advisor “Lauraloo” who slammed the grubby grill house with this shocking review.  Or maybe she was just miffed that she missed a chance to catch Brangelina.

“Just horrible”
2 of 5 starsReviewed 22 January 2014

Let me start off by saying that the waitstaff here are lovely & rather good at their jobs & the atmosphere is great. It’s such a shame that the food is abysmal.

I had the sizzling prawns & the ‘Bugs Coral Sea’. Prawns were an underwhelming bowl of butter with some prawns but OK. Bugs Coral Sea was atrocious, overcooked, dry bugs with no ‘citrus butter sauce’ to moisten them up, rice was sticky & overcooked (a theme perhaps) mandarin & semidried tomato salad reminded me of a Sizzler salad bar.

My partner had the reef & beef, which was ‘alright’, though for $36.5 you expect a little more than ‘alright’.

Cocktails overpriced, the mojitos are pretty poor, also they took forever to come out from the bar. Nobody offered to refill our water.
Left completely unsatisfied & $140.00 poorer. There are so many great places to eat in Airlie, this isn’t one of them. Such a shame, as it’s in a great place & has a lot of potential.
