The kindest thing that I can say about this place is "the cutlery is great". You can stand in a queue for 20 minutes to order your meals and then not have the order taken because YOU do not have a table number. They can't give you a number when you order, like in 99% of places up here. Staff... More

We have been meaning to visit for ages and finally did. We had a large group and rang 30 minutes before to check for a reservation. The view is spectacular so lunch is great just for that but in our group of 9 everyone was happy with their meals, and the waitress was very happy to consult with the chef... More

Service was good, food was wonderful, ambience lovely & the two kookaburras hanging around the edge of the overhead sails canopy were obviously "locals" (very cute!) Would definitely eat here again.

I am an ex Yorkey's resident and the Boat Club used to be one of my regular haunts. Great views and location, however service can be hit or miss. Also don't expect club prices, they are more in line with a normal bar. Also Food can be very expensive, also inconsistent, sometimes very good other times not!

Have visited several times in December, the views alone are worth it especially at sunset, the food is fantastic, haven't had a bad meal yet, great prices, staff very friendly and attentive. Some nights require a booking.

If you enjoy sea food this is a great location with some superb food. Mainly locals at this restaurant as it is further out of town but well worth a trip here.

As a local i am truly embarrassed that this is our local restaurant. The food is so bad i have not heard one of my friends or family say anything nice about it. The table service falls well short and the food would be better at any food court in the country. Given we have such a beautiful place with... More

I visited on boxing day lunch with my mum and partner. Service was horrific except one young guy who was super friendly and working hard - even dusting the TV whilst it was quiet, whilst a ridiculous amount of staff stood around doing nothing. The maitre'd- if you could call him that - was very unhelpful. We asked if we... More
