Fantastic location

Really enjoyed my visit here, great location, very clean (always number one for me) food was good though a little pricey for the casual dining experience, but I will definitely return for another meal

We dined here for lunch and couldn't be happier. We booked in advance and had the best seat in the house ( it pays to be organised)! The staff were friendly, the food was good, and the setting was just stunning. A wonderful way to spend a Monday lunch.

We usually go for the $12 oysters and in fact have been going so long they used to be $10, every time the manager is around I vow never to go again, once I had to beg the kitchen to do a bowl of chips for my daughter as the manager had declared that as we did not have a... More

The food provided was excellent with a good range. We chose simple meal of fish and chips, but could see that the lobster meals were very appetising. the location on the water was great and the service was very quick. Can well recommend this establishment!

Driving into Yorkeys this afternoon, being closely followed by a rushed and arrogant courtesy bus driver with the title 'Yorkeys knob boat club on the side' right up our rear end. Not the first time either! After driving out of the the marina road from the boat shed, the courtesy bus loaded or unloaded not sure ( doesn't matter anyway... More

We tried to get in for lunch on the Sunday but it was booked out so we managed to get in for Thursday lunch instead. I would suggest you book ahead if you are keen to go. The view was really worth seeing but I would not recommend the restaurant as you can still see the view from other parts... More

Such a lovely setting, such a shame the food a letdown. Dined with family, 2 of our 4 meals really ordinary, crumbed calamari tasteless & could've been so much better with a few tweaks! Declined to pass on to staff as very busy & to be honest was just so disappointed as had really been looking forward to a cracking... More

We met our friends at the boat club for lunch today. I had heard along the way that they serve a pretty good meal there. Husband and friends were happy with their meal but I was disappointed with my Ceasar/chicken salad. There were a lot of "croutons" in it that were big chunks of tough bread. Chicken was very dry.
