Have written a review in detail, but funny can't find it on your sight. The manager was very rude and very unhelpful. Saturday 23rd at 12.30pm. But he did us all favor we went across the street and now have all our favourite restaurant. Thank you you horrible nasty man.

The surf club overlooks the beach pool at Southbank so it gives the coast feeling in Brisbane. The service is good but the food and drinks aren't cheap but well worth the experience.

This is a very popular spot which is no surprise given its proximity to the lagoon at South Bank. With a family of 5 we had to wait about 15 minutes until a table came available however the host was very polite and friendly and kept us up to date. Finally got our table and was quickly provided water and... More

Situated on the South Bank Parkland beside the Brisbane River complex, this is a large restaurant that had been established for quite a few years. Even on the busy weekends, there is no problem with getting a table where the service is first class and the Manager(?) personally visits every table to make sure customers are satisfied!

The food and service were great. Especially recommend the Squid, and the Barramundi. Big serves of fries, great cocktail menu, live music, just what's needed on a sunny day in Brisbane :)

great place to grab a great feed near the water. Good to sit at the bar and enjoy the scenery overlooking the lagoon and Brisbane city in the background

The location, overlooking South Bank and the river is pretty unbeatable. And the food is pretty decent too. Admittedly, the service is a bit on the slower side, but it's worth it for the atmosphere. Just sit back, relax and take it in. I ate here twice during my visit.
