Went for a family meal on Saturday night. Big mistake. Ordered 4 meals and they took almost three quarters of an hour to arrive. One meal was a chicken schnitzel. When it was served, it came without gravy. I asked for gravy and it cost another dollar!!! My tai burger was 1 cm thick! One piece of tomato, a few... More

if you are visiting old bar nsw, you should pop into the club, nice cold beer friendly staff, good food, at reasonable prices, you only need to sign in once as it gives visitors 7 day of access without resigning each time.

Very friendly club. Meals are very tasty & very reasonable. The specials are extremely cheap, but very much appreciated by visitors and locals alike.

Actually your photo shows the Old Bar Surf Clubhouse but if you want a review of Club Old Bar it is my experience that Club Old Bar does not produce tasty and quality meals on a regular basis. The quality is haphazard and unreliable.

My husband and I went for a chicken schnitzel special and unfortunately I had an upset tummy for 2 days after. The meal was lukewarm and greasy. I had eaten at the bistro once before with the same result, perhaps its the oil they use or perhaps the oil is not changed enough. I will go back to the club... More

We were looking for a compromise half way point to drive take my dad out for his 70 th birthday as he was less mobile after a knee replacement and lives at manning point. My dads lamb chops were two very small and pitiful portions for $19 and a tight serving of chips. The marinara was bland and far too... More

The club was good once upon a time. But now staff are not polite or helpful and the toilets are terrible as they are usually unclean. The food at the bistro is quite average....with all of it tasting quite bland.

We really enjoyed the dinners we had at this club. On Monday, Wednesday and Thursday we enjoyed the $9 and $10 meals. Excellent value for money.

absolutely awful food. Frozen pizza for kids meals! Come on. Thats pathetic. Best bistro food ever! who wrote that. Obviously a director or employee of the club! Staff were rude and un-helpful and senior members of staff were the worst! (especially in the office at the front) Terrible customer service and toilets were a disgrace! Never going back. Ever.
