Super Combo - Wood fired steak, next to the beach

What better combination: Steak cooked over a wood fire, overlooking the Beach. Very Australian. Great steak, reasonable drink prices (but not cheap). Beach location. Perfect spot for lunch. Tip: Get a coupon from along the main street that allows you to get 2 steaks for 1 ($21.99... read more

What better combination: Steak cooked over a wood fire, overlooking the Beach. Very Australian. Great steak, reasonable drink prices (but not cheap). Beach location. Perfect spot for lunch. Tip: Get a coupon from along the main street that allows you to get 2 steaks for 1 ($21.99), available only for lunch. Reasonable value, particularly for Australia. Enjoy.

Ate here last night and have to say I would find it difficult to find fault. We booked a table as we were aware that at weekends, it is a popular venue. Restaurant has uninterrupted sea views, and looks to have been recently renovated. Food choice was good and it was good to see a few pasta options on the... More

We have now been to this venue for lunch twice - both times the food and service was excellent. Fantastic views over the beach a very enjoyable place for lunch. I would recommend booking as it does get quite busy. Prices are reasonable and if you join the club this give a further discount. I must also say the ladies... More

We had drinks on the balcony, which was lovely. The cocktails were pretty good too, even coming in a jar with an umbrella!

We were told the Surf Club was good value and it proved so. It was very busy, quite noisy but we had a table outdoors overlooking the beach and it was fine. Steaks were good, potato gratin gorgeous, tuna nicoise salad was enormous! Be aware, you will need to sign in and staff will want to see I.D so have... More

We stopped by for dinner while camping next door at Coolum Beach Holiday Park. We were very impressed, especially once we'd snagged one of the terrace tables overlooking the beach. Even after dark, with the moon coming up over the water the view was very romantic and memorable. The steaks are pretty good and there's some nice beers on tap.... More

Nice atmosphere, we had an amazing waiter very friendly and attentive. The group all received fantastic meals except for one which was the steak. It was a little tough and the tiny piece of potato bake that come with it was a waste of time.

I tried to go to the restaurant here with our children to eat, signed in etc only to be told that the restaurant was fully booked out (at 5:30pm), despite seeing a large number of empty tables around. My wife and I ate here a couple of years ago, but found the pizzas to be tasteless (pre-packaged and cooked in... More
