“We will be bringing the Dapple + Waver you all know and love back, including some of our most popular dishes, drinks, and a few familiar faces too,” the restaurant announced via social media.

Diners can look forward to the return of popular menu items like juicy steak, battered fish tacos and shareable appetisers that made Dapple and Waver a go-to spot in Toombul.

In addition to mouthwatering food, the restaurant prides itself on a drinks menu packed with a rotating selection of craft beers on tap, handcrafted cocktails and an extensive wine list featuring domestic and imported bottles to please every palate.

The new, 160-seat Yeerongpilly Green location will allow the restaurant to serve more customers. The reopening comes after the business faced numerous challenges over the past few years, including operating during the COVID-19 pandemic and associated lockdowns.

Although Dapple and Waver was undamaged, the catastrophic 2022 Brisbane floods also affected the Toombul Shopping Centre. In July 2023, Brisbane City Council approved the demolition of the flood-damaged Toombul site 14 months after the floods forced permanent closure of the centre.

The closure directly impacted the restaurant along with many other retailers. However, they have persevered through the challenges and found a new home in Yeerongpilly Green.

The new urban village development Yeerongpilly Green is home to the large, modern mixed-use retail, dining and entertainment centre YG Riverside Village. Major tenants slated to open soon include a Woolworths supermarket, BWS liquor store and Priceline Pharmacy. Dapple and Waver will join the village’s offerings when it reopens this month.
