Excellent food but not hot

Food excellent selection from buffet but cold to lukewarm. Great ambience and not noisy. Very busy but not intrusive. Would have been great if the food had been hot.

We were roped into the seafood buffet on Saturday night. Huge selection all you can eat. Predictably average in the flavour department, but for the price, no one is going to complain.

Was very average which was disappointing. A smaller selection from what some of the other clubs in larger towns and cities offer, so was expecting it to be better quality, but it wasn't. the meats were quite dry, the baked vegies were old (as in the skins on the potatoes and the surfaces on the pumpkin were dry and chewy)....

Nice staff. Normal club atmosphere. Buffet is ok. Nothing special. Roars overlooked. Don't expect much and you will be happy. Good drink prices. Horses for courses.

We ate here on our first night in Port Macquarie because it was close to our accommodation. The staff at "sign in" were not overly friendly and the buffet was average.

Asian, roasts, grill, seafood, salad, fruit, sweets and ice cream with all the toppings. What more can I say, all you can eat. Well presented and they kept the food topped up so you were never waiting for anything. Well priced and popular.
