Desperately need to be snapped from that mid-summer stupor? A few rounds of beverages at Blackbird's outdoor terrace bar should do the trick nicely.

Here, you'll sneak a peek at the setting sun while enjoying views across the river to the Story Bridge. There's an impressive selection of oysters and caviar on offer for a truly decadent sundowner session — because nothing screams 'Queensland summer' quite like champagne and seafood on the waterfront.

But despite this, most people flock to Blackbird Bar & Grill for the steaks — all served with coleslaw and beef fat vinaigrette. On the menu's cheaper side, enjoy a Beef City premium Angus cross 200-gram tenderloin or a King River wagyu 350-gram rump. The opposite end of the scale offers up a 2GR 200-gram wagyu sirloin or a Grasslands Angus 400g rib eye on the bone.

If you don't fancy a steak, try the smoked duck breast and confit leg with baby turnips and puffed wild rice or the coal-roasted market fish with seaweed butter and dill. If you're a vegetarian, it's got you covered too, with a bean sprout, almond and fregola risotto and starters such as baby beetroot, blue pumpkin and steamed broccolini.

Their oyster menu is also impressive, while the caviar options include salmon, oscietra and ale blue scampi.
