The Cinderella Man took to Twitter after his night out in Airlie Beach to praise the venue and its hospitable staff.

"Loved the experience at the coolest restaurant in Airlie Beach, your barmaid Chey is gold. I taste franchise!!" his tweet read.
 

Restaurant owner Mitch Andrew said Crowe's appearance took the team by surprise but they were happy to accommodate him.

"(He) just rocked up for a feed - lucky we had a table."
