Try the seafood buffet on Saturday night

For $26.50 it's all you can eat. Fresh prawns, mussels and crab to start, a salad bar, soup too. Then there's cooked seafood, roasts, veggies, AND a huge range of chinese food. the desserts are moreish. It's very popular with families and busy, not a place for a romantic meal.

This is essentially a Bowling Club, one of the early established clubs in Port Macquarie. It is the one of the best one stop shop for entertainment in Port Macquarie and one of the best buffets I have enjoyed. We were having a school reunion, so a private function room was organised. We had the run of the upstairs buffet:... More

The staff are most welcoming and all are very pleasant. The Bistro is good value and meals generally good. The TAB area is good and there is entertainment in the lounge on Saturday night.

Wen't here twice for a meal with a group. First time we all had good meals which we ordered from their extensive list. The seconfd time we went for the seafood, pizza and pasta banquet. Apart from the fresh prawns, the meal was very indifferent. A number of seafood items had way to much batter on them while the pasta... More

Visiting with the family we ate at the buffet two nights within a wk, great selection of food and very fresh. Great price and well. Worth a visit for dinner and a play on the pokies if you so desire!

Great food and apparently a great view over the water (although it was dark by the time we ate in the buffet restaurant). My kids went back to the buffet three times, which is unusual as they're usually fussy eaters!

We dined at the Ocean Breeze Coffee Shop and ordered steaks, 1 medium rare & 1 medium. They were both overcooked & the cook was not happy when 1 was taken back. The replacement steak was also overcooked. Comments were given to the wait staff regarding the steaks. No response was forthcoming from the kitchen. They weren't cheap either @... More

Great convenience - typical bowlo type ambience. If you're into all-you-can-eat buffets, this will be right up your alley!
