We came here due to a friends suggestion. We didn't join because we were only in surfers for a small period of time, but if you do you get 10% off. We ate here several times because everything we ordered was just so scrumptious and tasty. The soups were fantastic, the steak specials were amazing. One day we had a... More

What a great little club!! The new reno's look fantastic and although the first couple of meals we had were not quite up to par they have certainly got the hang of their new kitchen now and the meals are great! I recommend becoming a member so that you can take up the members discounts. They also have the latest... More

I'm the Managing Director of The Punchline Comedy Club Asia and Australia. We had our first show here in March 2014 and had approx. 300 people attend an otherwise very quiet night at this run down establishment. The bar and restaurant made in excess of $6000 and you would think as a business they would be pleased and welcome us... More

We became a member to make the most of their specials, ie two T-bone steak meals for $25. Pub food but a worthy cause, remembering what RSL stands for so very happy to support them. Great service, the chef recalled our food before we even noticed as the steaks had not been cooked to our specifications, meals returned very quickly!... More

Really felt like having a roast meal after being on Gold Coast for a week. Went to rsl and ordered roast of the day, meal average and baked potatoes tasted like they were left overs from the day before and microwaved , they were terrible. Staff nice tho

The Surfers RSL is not a huge club, both in size and members. It's a local place with an interesting range of members. We have made friends quickly. We enjoy the food and the drinks. The staff are fabulous and we also win a few raffles and lucky draws. what else can one ask for.
