Relaxing Lunch

We had a lovely lunch out on the deck overlooking the Boat Harbour. The weather was perfect and we had a great view of all the yachts in the harbour. A good varied menu, not too highly priced, and a couple of good specials. Service was friendly.

Its such a shame because the location of this restaurant is so nice but we have had bad experience after bad experience here. From warm oysters (served natural) to overcooked steak, soggy fish..we keep going back because it's close to home and on a nice day location wise it doesn't get any better...but on our last visit I could not...

Meal was fair to average at best. Fantastic setting and views somewhat spoiled. You expect $26 fish and chips to be stunning, not near inedible. A real disappointment

The boat club is just perfect for weary tavellers who need good food, fabulous setting and a cool breeze, can't fault it. If you turn up in a scruffy tea shirt expect to be loaned a jazzy shirt (quite reasonably). Lovely friendly staff too.

Noticed the Boat Club from Palm Cove so went for a drive and found the Yorkeys Knob Boat Club, just in time for lunch. Service was friendly and the menu had some nice options that didn't include deep frying which was a nice change. Serving sizes were large, my daughter and I had the lamb Kofta entrée which was perfect... More

Very welcoming staff, just sign in at the door.Huge place with extensive decking around the edge. Great restaurant with the biggest shade sail in the world! A very family orientated place obviously used by locals which is always a good sign!

My wife and I took a friend visiting Cairns for a farewell dinner. We had booked beforehand and asked for a table by the water. We were shown straight to a table overlooking the harbour, with marina on one side and boat ramp on the other. Lots to see with boats coming and going, and planes coming in to land... More

If you want a nice breakfast that doesn't cost an arm or leg the the deck at the Yorkeys Knob Boat Club is the place to visit while in Cairns. Watch the boats in marina or the outriggers training on the open waters Great for lunch and dinner 7 days a week but breakfasts on a Sunday morning are the... More

After steering clear of this place for a couple of years due to terrible service and below average meals we decided to go and give breakfast a try this morning after friends had told us how much it had improved. We waited 40 minutes for breakfast and after enquiring was told it would be a further 5 minutes. 15 minutes... More

I am a regular local here & have noticed the place (especially the restaurant) very dead every time I've been recently. On Sunday I overheard a conversation between a customer and the bar tender. She had apparently been refused a double gin and tonic by a very rude bar man the following week. This was not good to hear. Today... More
