Buffet Breakfast

We were on the hunt for breakfast, and came across the buffet breakfast for $10 signage and decided to give it a go. Easy and fast food, buffet is always good for a breakfast, quite a reasonable selection of food although they were running low or out or a lot of the foods at the time we were there... read more

Pretty poor food in this place,in fact the worst meal I've eaten in any club in Australia. Ordered the roast beef,cold,my wife asked hers to be heated up,the kids portion size were tiny,only saving grace was decent staff,apart from the cook,who can't cook!,

It has long been a pleasure to dine at the Surfers RSL.. I have to be honest and say there has been somewhat of a hiatus of late.. a number of factors have contributed to this, including the fire gutting the place some time back.. However, fast forward to 2015. I rediscovered this restaurant..New clean ( apart from their toilets...still... More

Went there for dinner tonight with a tired 2 year old and staff were great, one brought over crayons and a picture to distract Mr 2 and another came over to check how he was going with his colouring. PS the food was awesome !

The RSL is always a great feed and value for money. It has been refurbished since we last went there and the set up is much better.

Had lunch here and wasn't overly impressed with the selection. The eatery just didn't feel right , felt more like a coffee shop. Young lady serving the food and clearing away was very polite at all times, she was a breath of fresh air!
