Fantastic food and service

Husband ordered the cheeseburger and no complaints with that. I ordered a seafood dish (sorry can't remember what it's called) which was presented nicely and was delicious! Taro chips with salsa and avocado was great starter. Bartender makes a mean triple choc cocktail and was welcoming. The only downfall was that we went on a really muggy evening and there... More

We ate here twice during our stay in Port Douglas and it was excellent value for money. Good food, relaxed atmosphere and the biggest steaks I have ever seen - very tasty and tender!

This is a very informal place on an outdoor deck so no air conditioning. For dinner I ordered the soft shelled crab baco. I would not recommend this dish.

The surf club was a great place to go for a coffee or cool drink whilst visiting the beach. The staff were cheery and helpful.

This has always been a good option situated right beside the beach offering very reasonably priced meals. Very casual and you order at the counter and order drinks separately at the bar. It has taken a leap forward since my last visit to Port Douglas however and the chef here now is preparing outstanding food. The burger is simply awesome... More

The price you pay for what you get is unreal.Great setting and nice cold tap beer. Get stuck into a cheeseburger you won't regret it.

Female host wasn't 2 pleased to see us arrive around 7.30 pm. Weather wasn't gr8 so think they wanted to pack up early. Told to order asap. Overpriced. Do not like plates being removed from the table when others are still eating!!

Been here a few times and tried a few fishes. The pork belly buns and fish tacos are excellent. Friendly staff and quick service. Also about as beachfront as it gets.
