The food and food service was awesome as usual. The bar service was terrible as usual. Many staff, not serving customers! This has been the same experience on at least 4 occasions. To top it off, they ran out of pinot gris totally! Plenty of beer though!

My Sunday birthday lunch with family couldn't have been a better choice. It was quiet which really suited one family member with a hearing aid! The food, as always was yummy & the birthday deal all added up to a very happy experience. We will be back!

all the food came out cold, and the place was almost empty, not busy. my friends steak was no where near cooked, and cold. the food came out less than 5 minutes after we ordered it which is impossible if it’s fresh, so the food was obviously not fresh. such a disappointment.

We wish you had brought this to our attention on the evening so we could resolve the problem on the night. I hope you would consider returning to the hotel in future so we can make it up to you with a meal for you and your friend on us! Regards, Tim Le Page

Once we found our table and sat down, a friendly staff member greeted us and checked that we were the right people at the table. It was busy, but the food came out in a reasonable time frame.
We often visit the Dee Why Hotel but this was the first time with a larger group. It went really well.

Service is cheerful and friendly. Food is usually ok or quite good. Noise level with people talking, babies crying, music blaring all made it hard to have a chat. But still a pleasant place to catch up with friends.

We have been a few times to Dee Why Hotel. It was just a casual catch up to celebrate my husband's 50th birthday as he really enjoys the burgers there. I had the chicken schnitzel and it tasted like it had been frozen. It was one of the worst I have ever had. Wasn't going to say anything but since the survey came through thought I would give feedback.

However, the staff were really friendly and accommodating.

Responded on April 22, 2019

Happy birthday to your husband Sarah and thank you for celebrating at the Dee Why Hotel. We are sorry to hear that your chicken schnitzel did not meet your expectation. If ever there is any issue at all, please let us know at the time, as we are very quick to correct. Your happiness is very important to us.

We often come to Dee Why Hotel for birthdays etc as we have big family. This time though we were out in the open part and not in one of the sections off to the side which made it very hard to move around and speak to people. We also didn’t have enough space.

Have been to DY Hotel for years as our preferred local of choice. Tried the online booking for the first time when I had family visiting from overseas. Pleased to report that it was a success.

Our table was reserved for us and the service was friendly, and prompt. Being a Friday evening, we were surrounded by the early family crowd. With all the children clamouring for attention, it was hard to make ourselves heard above the music as well. But it was a cheerful sound and we didn't mind it. The baby at the next table only started to wail when she dropped her toy. Everyone was all smiles again when I picked it up for her. It was a happy place.

I had my usual favourite: fish tacos. The best ever on the Northern Beaches. It didn't disappoint. The others had the Caesar salad and the cheeseburger. We all helped to finish the yummy chips. Thanks for a lovely evening!

Fabulous friendly staff. Upon arrival I was holding a cake box for my daughters 17th birthday. Before I even sat down the manager came and took the cake, wrote my name on and put it straight in the fridge. At the end of our great meal the staff bought the cake out with plates and cutlery all ready for us. Very good service. The Tuesday night $15 meals were fabulous. Beautiful Salmon & Steaks. Plenty of variety on the menu. Overall it was easy to book on line and the staff were all very friendly, efficient and all looked like they enjoyed working there.
