Nice views but the food needs to come up to the level you pay fore ( over priced meals ) I had fish of the day swordfish was very under cooked ( never again )

I was pleasantly surprised. I ordered a rib steak meal here and was amazed at the quality of this meal - as good as some of the best (and expensive) steak houses in the big cities. Great views, friendly staff and well worth a visit.

Had a lovely dinner. I had fish of the day, swordfish, amazing, tender, moist, and so much flavour, fabulous salad and great chippies. He had fish of the day, beer battered Barramundi. Both served with a great and very fresh salad. Only black point!! Way too expensive for a surf club.

Extensive menu, friendly staff, great view. All round a great place to visit. Offers full range of TAB and Pokies plus live entertainment on some days. Kitchen refurbishment is due for completion in mid September and the menu should be even better then. I have been a member for 14 years and eat there with my husband at least twice... More

Four of us signed in around 7pm on a rainy Wednesday night. The place was not busy but that was probably due to the rain keeping those without transport away. However that worked to our groups' advantage. We got seated by the window and both the barman and cashier taking our orders were efficient and friendly. All four of us... More

Food is average, over priced but the view and atmosphere is great so check it out but don't expect a meal to die for

We had been here about a year ago and came back with a large family group for lunch. Food was almost inedible - poor quality, presentation and value. The view is lovely but service and food need to be upgraded.

We recently ate with the family at the surf Club again and without fail the seafood was great. Nicely presented, plenty of it too. Nice atmosphere and a view to die for.......consistently good.....it does get busy in the season but well worth a trip to this place!

Staff are not very friendly and the meals leave a lot to be desired. We went expecting an experience similar to that which we had at the noosa and mooloolaba surf clubs (brilliant) however left feeling like we had intruded on their surf club. Very disappointing and not family friendly. Go to the coolum bowls club instead - so much... More
