Reasonable price club food

The Bowling Club has reasonable priced drinks, a specialty meal each night and reasonable priced food. Good for a quick simple night's tea.

After 50 minutes of waiting and three attempts to have our meals served, we ended up with a raw coral trout and 2 very poor quality rib eye fillets (which were certainly not rib eye fillets). We then requested to speak to the chef, and were told by the waitress he was "too busy". After a short wait, he arrived... More

We ate at the bowls club. The staff at the bar and bistro were very warm, welcoming and friendly. I was happy with the quality and price of the meals - $28 for an adult and 2 children's meals. The girl at the bistro was very accommodating to our son's fussy needs with meals. I would recommend eating at the... More

Had some time in Coolum in February, had meals in quite a few venues but once I had a meal at the bowls club I and my friends just kept going back there. The chef couldn't do enough for us and the staff were very friendly, I don't understand why they would get any bad reviews.

Having lunch for $7.00 is a bargain these days. I usually have a lunch there once a week. Good deal, or so I thought, until I choked on a staple that was in my fish/chips and salad dish. Very glad it was not a child. Informed a kitchen / waiter staff member. She was most apologetic and baffled as to... More

Very dissapointed and unsatisfied. Waited over an hour for our food to come out (nightmare with kids) then it was chewy and overcooked and there was about 5 chips on our plate and a miserable dirty tasting salad. I don't usually write reviews. That's how bad it was.

Place was loud and rough with chef abusing patrons. Food was very ordinary albeit cheap on Thursday nights. Go to the surf club!

We went there again after swearing off the place a couple of years ago, thinking that new chefs different staff etc etc, we were so wrong, staff attitudes were not improved neither was the terrible soup kitchen type offerings, the beer was warm and they still had the same old Pokies which had close to zero payouts, never again.
