We decided on a buffet meal, so as members, it was off to the PCBC. As always plenty of choice in this excellent buffet offering. I went back for more of the delicious omelette. We've been going here for nearly six years & it's always been good. Very good value for money. You could actually cover the cost by just... More

Ever heard of a bowls that doesn't have fish and chips on the menu? We walked to the bowlo for a casual meal and discovered that they didn't have fish and chips on the menu - this is a beachside holiday town and one would expect that the bowls club would deliver. Cafe was tired and decor needs an upgrade.

Have been eating here for years. Always come here when family are visiting. This time round the food was terrible to say the least. The price was too high for a club. The food was tasteless. Being seafood night I thought my partner would be happy. He said like me not worth the money.

We went here on a recommendation with a group of adults and children last week for the buffet whilst we were holidaying in town. It was one of the worst meals I have encountered in a long time. The crumbed calamari and other deep fried asian food was burnt and rubbery. The salad was dripping and brown. The only thing... More

The upstairs dining turned our buffet loving 12 year old off buffets! The variety was poor, the fried food in the Asian selection was revolting to even look at. The bolognaise was pretty crappy. The salad bar and seafood was fresh (cooked prawns & mussels only). Spend your money somewhere else if you can.

First night in Port and walked to the Bowling club. Had a couple of drinks then went upstairs to the buffet. Most of the food was barely palatable and the crumbed calamari was more like crumbed rubber bands. The prawns were tasteless and the roasts and Chinese selections were pretty bland. Not worth the $22 per head.
