Price Point: Mains from $15 - $30

Overlooking the yachts at Parkyn Parade, enjoy waterside dining and a lively atmosphere at this contemporary restaurant.

The menu offers a variety of delicious dishes with an Italy-meets-Australia theme. From tasty pizzas to lasagne and chicken parmigiana, there’s plenty to appease all tastes. Tuck into a mini big rig burger (note: there’s nothing mini about it!) stacked with a beef patty, bacon, cheese, pineapple and onion rings. There’s also a wide variety of vegan dishes, from yummy nachos to a vegan hot dog with smoky BBQ sauce.

Wash it all down with a great selection of beers, wines and non-alcoholic drinks like creamy milkshakes.

Chances is 10/10 from the flavoursome food to the gorgeous waterside dinning.
We had salt and pepper calamari due to the other reviews saying how tender is was and that was 100% correct! My fiancé had the mini big rig bugger and couldn’t even finish it all. I had the Moreton Bay Bugs.... so delicious and we finished the evening with something we’d never tried before deep fried Oreos!
Thanks for a great date night and tasty food! Will be back.

Nice location at the wharf & good atmosphere. The resturant was already filling up at 5pm. There was a bit of a wait for food, however that didn’t phase us because we knew they were busy & once it arrived it was delishious! Simple meals (burger & hotdog) done right! The only “let down” was my $20 mango daiquiri had no taste of mango at all, that was super disappointing, other than that it was fantastic! Thank you for having us Chances

Had a great meal but we did over order and had too much food as the meals are very large. Meals are ordered at the bar so we did not really get service, but the girl taking the orders was very obliging. Lovely setting overlooking the marina.

These guys do a pretty good job! We eat plant based/vegan so its great they have so many options on their menu. We enjoyed the quesadilla, the chilli and the fritters...plated up beautifully and lots of avocado on the fritters was a winner! Great position overlooking the boats and river. Aircon in summer is a bonus!

There no chances taking when dining at Chances. Service was exceptional, friendly and easy to approach. Food was delicious, ordered more than we could possibly eat to try a few things and weren't disappointed. Special mention to the loaded fries, did not count on them being so filling and tasty.

I have to admit, I was a little skeptical, but for no reason as it turned out.
The wait staff were expecting us, the service was great, the food was delicious, the view over the water was amazing and it was a bargain! We shall definitely be doing this again and encouraging our family and friends to do likewise.

Excellent night. We went with another couple and ordered food to share. Seafood was lovely and fresh, pizza was delicious and the service was great. The menu was extensive with so many nice choices which made it difficult to choose hence we went share plates. We all enjoyed our experience at Chances. Highly recommend to family and friends. Prices great too.

We had a fantastic dinner last night. Beautiful outlook. Best pizza I have had in ages, my husband loves his lamb and was delighted with this lamb rump (even ate his veges!!). Decadent fried Oreos with two flavours of ice cream .... soooo good. The waffles ... well you will have to go and try them, so save room for dessert. Lovely service and great portion sizes.

Chances is a casual pub food dining place. We started off with chicken wings which were all drumsticks and had a great flavour with a unique individual presentation. Try the korean sauce with these for something different. We then had the onion rings that were tasty and then the battered prawns that were very nice. My husband (MH) then had the worlds tallest Qlder Schnitzel that was stacked with bacon, cheese & pineapple which he enjoyed immensely. I had the Morton Bay bugs that came with a delicious garlic butter that was very good value for the price. The service by the young waitress was excellent and nothing seemed a problem. A good selection of craft beers which always makes MH very happy. A great place to get great food.

We had a lovely family dinner. They catered well for vegetarians and the chicken parmies were also outstanding - quite possibly the best we've ever had. We'll be back.

We loved the food, servings were large, so keep in mind that if you aren’t a big eater then skip the entrees.
My husband and his brother had the lamb rump, they both declared it was delicious. My daughter and I both had chicken parmigiana, and we both loved it.
Only issue was the entrees came and then five minutes later main courses were served, but a slight hiccup didn’t spoil the night, it just meant we took a doggie box home.
Would definitely eat here again.

The food was reasonably priced and good, not exceptional but still good. Somethings were outstanding like the chicken wings that had an amazing flavourful crumb and my friends pine nut salad was also delicious. I had the moreton bay bugs which were a tad dry. I would definitely return specifically for some of those things on the menu though. There was also a lot of variety on the menu. The best reason to go though is the atmosphere. It is a beautiful restaurant with beautiful views (we got to witness the sunset while there) which makes it a great place to go with friends.

We had dinner at Chances on Mothers Day and we had a fantastic experience. From start to finish we were looked after by the friendly staff and the food was delicious. My husband was impressed by the local beer on tap and the kids loved the pizza! Already planning our next visit.

With two little kids not only are we generally not that excited to go 'out' for a nice dinner (cue whinging, half eaten plates, noise, mess etc - hardly relaxing) we're also usually poor AF. Taking the early slot means a calm, easy, stress-free and affordable eat at a fancy place (not a happy meal in sight!). We loved every bit. We ordered up big and ate our body weight in food. The kids loved it. They had delicious food and there was a play room too! Excellent night all around and we were home in time for a cuppa tea.
