It's a real shame that this place that has such a great location and such crap food - every single time I go here I get told that the Chef is grumpy or unhappy today so I don't think he will add olives to your meal - okay at that point we generally turn around and walk out and go... More

Excellent view. Able to watch people and boats going and froing. Meals all seem to be fried or tired. Would recommend as a drinking place with nibbles only.

The Yorkeys Boat Club boasts a huge covered timber deck beside the Marina, the view is splendid. There is also a smokers verandah and a function room which is great for weddings. The food is always fresh and plentiful and the service fast and friendly . The courtesy bus goes out to the surrounding suburbs and is very popular with... More

Great view, good design, very friendly and helpful staff and good food. Not cheap for a club but not all clubs have a view over the Coral sea and a marina. Have been before and will go again.

Service was slow and staff were very rude. Very disappointing. Nice location. Food was overpriced and not quality food. On a positive note, the shuttle bus driver was very friendly and nice.

This is definitely one of the best locations for food in Cairns but the food is terrible. The menu options are similar to the bowls club or rsl club I think they should bring some class to match the scenery. A fresh Seafood platter would be great! Chicken parmigiana, Thai Pork Curry, Basil Penne and steaks do not match the... More

There are limited dining options in Yorkey's Knob, and the Boat Club has a nice view of the small harbour and good food. We ate here twice during our week long stay.

Location was great. But is wasted by the terrible, un experienced staff members. Very very expensive food and bad quality food. Steak was $31 and iv had a nicer one for $10. Rude bar staff and slow customer service. Go to palm cove.

Location and atmosphere is 10 out of 10 and can't understand why their service and quality isn't the same, such a shame. We last went here a few years ago and had terrible service so never went back. Attempting to give it a go we went last week and were disappointed. The service is in our opinion (6 of us)... More
