Group Functions

Longboard can seat a maximum of 16 guests for a sit-down lunch or dinner on our longboard bench style tables inside. Unfortunately, we do not cater for larger groups than 16 guests, however, we do have options for stand-up cocktail style functions.
The Buffalo Corner, is the area to the left as you enter the restaurant next to the main bar. This area can cater for 8-15 guests. There is a high longboard table with bar stools and a service window directly to the main bar. This area is a very popular spot to enjoy some Buffalo wings with ocean views along the beach.


The Captain’s Nook Room is in a stunning spot facing out towards Magnetic Island. This little area can be booked for 8-15 guests. Similar to the Buffalo corner with the high longboard table and bar stools although this room is definitely prime real estate. On Friday and Saturday afternoons right outside of the Captain’s Nook is the Island bar which is open with drink specials. The island bar is also open for the iconic Sunday sessions.

We visited during our recent stay in Townsville. Located on the ocean side of The Strand, this restaurant has some of the best views of the whole beach area of Townsville.

Great service, excellent food, and great views. Our servers were well traveled, and once they knew we were from the US, many of the servers, and manager stopped by to chat, share stories, and provide some great hospitality during our visit.

Ample restaurant, bar, and outdoor seating is available. One thing about Townsville, is that there is no shortage of upscale food options (small quantity, exotic offerings, great presentation, small portions, and large prices). The Longboard bar and grill has a mixture of this, along with some good ole regular Australian fare at an affordable price.

The owner has history with St. Louis BBQ, and this shown on the baby back ribs. The prawns were excellent, as the offerings of wine and beer. You can't go wrong at this place!!!!
