Well we were in for a treat. We chose the three course set menu $60 pp and found everything delicious. They served us two entrees to share then a generous serving of perfectly cooked Beef Cheeks and to complete the evening a chocolate and raspberry...dessert. Allergies are catered for, the set menu is gluten free. Wines by the glass good but limited. There is plenty of indoor and outdoor seating. We had a delightful waitress who was friendly, efficient and helpful. Highly recommend.More

We went to Orleans for a late lunch with friends - three couples and a young child. My wife and I shared a starter of chicken wings and we had bread and accompaniments for the table. It was all lovely and a great start to...the meal. I then had the seafood gumbo for main and my wife had the beef cheeks. She loved hers, melt in the mouth beef. There were three others on the table that also had beef cheeks - they all loved it. Unfortunately, my gumbo was only OK. It was a bit salty and the roux wasn't cooked out enough. The seafood was ample and delicious though. We also shared a lovely bottle of nebbiolo. All up it was under $200 for the two of us. Overall it was a really nice meal.More

The male table waiter was excellent- didn’t walk but ran to keep up with a private lunch event inside as well as 5 tables of customers on the outside section. He stayed cheerful, efficient and gave appropriate mini chats with each table of people. If...I had a restaurant he is exactly the type of staffer that I would want. We were very keen to enjoy the tastes of Orleans as a nostalgic nod to where we met in USA. Husband declared the gumbo spicy with heat and flavour but not as he remembered his USA multiple gumbo experiences. My short rib was as described - fall apart tender and the flavours on the plate were perfect for my less adventurous palate. My gin fizz drink was delicious and Husband stated the red wine was very good. My dessert choice of brandy snaps was perfect and Husband enjoyed his chocolate mousse. The music had bits of Orleans cliche music but varied to include Sinatra and Elton John etc. I would encourage more Orleans style music to add to the expected ambiance. However, all the excellent service, flavoursome food and palate pleasing refreshments just couldn’t make up for the hideous intrusion of constant traffic noise - and I mean noise not just the hum of passing traffic. In a shared 10 Kph zone this was unexpected and some effort by Orleans with roll down blinds or shrubs may have reduced the echo/magnification of the vehicle noise against the building awning? Inside tables may have a far more pleasant experienceMore

The best food and wine pairings meal that I've had in a long time. With a mix of French and New Orleans inspired food, the wine pairings that came with each course was perfect. The service was great and the atmospheric Decor reminded me of...a bar in Amsterdam. I will definitely be back!More

The food at Orleans is superb and stands up there with great restaurants. A simple menu, but rarely do I struggle to choose a dish - did last night because everything looks delicious and we were NOT disappointed. The presentation was excellent; the flavours and...textures layered and delicious. The staff were excellent, knowledgeable and interactive. Can not recommend highly enough and a great reason to come back to Maroochydore!.More

I can not 100% be sure but I believe you can, if you look at their online site, under events it talks about free BYO Mondays, so perhaps other days there is a corkage fee. Enjoy.
