As a local and visiting several times over the past 5 years I decided to visit the Surf Club after a long time not eating here. Having just spent a lot of money redesigning the kitchen I found nothing had changed. The views , the staff, the service AS ALWAYS fantastic. The overpriced meals were not only that but so... More

We dined her last night with 2 friends and although the ambiance was very nice and excellent service, the noise from people talking was so loud and when the disco started up, the sound was deafening. I checked the far end of the restaurant hoping it would be quieter, but it was transcending through to the far end of restaurant.... More

We ate here almost every night, it was so good. Suits all ages. We loved sitting on the balcony overlooking the beach drinking sundowners and having a nice meal. Prices really value for money.

The humidity can be overwhelming for southerners and this is a great escape - excellent views of the beach, relaxing atmosphere and value meals.

While vacationing in Coolum, my stepdaughter suggested we have lunch at the Surf Club and the view is spectacular, there is lots of room and gaming is also available on the premises. Our lunch was very good, prices were reasonable and I would recommend the Surf Club.

This is what it says - a club - and as such is generally pretty busy on a weekends, the food is excellent value, beer is cheap and cold. It is not the sort of place you would go for a romantic meal but rather for a bit of fun in a boistrous atmosphere - so boistrous that conversation can... More

Excellent on-beach location serving tasty, reasonably priced food. However, at least one of your party needs to be a member to sign you in.

As locals we have seen and enjoyed the continuing improvements to Coolum SLSC. This is a family friendly and very happy place for breakfast lunch or dinner. Simply a drink on the deck is a great experience. Make sure you visit to feel like you are on the beach, yet cool, relaxed and comfy on the deck. Food is "club"... More
