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

I do think since they have done all their renovations that the pricing for food has dramatically increased. So we only occasionally go there now. But you can't pass up that view out on the deck.

Not only were we seated on the table of our choice, also at the designated time, but the meal was exactly as advertised and totally GREAT. The people serving paid attention to the order and we were served quickly at the bar afterwards.

The food at present is Pub food which is cheep and cheerful. The view is just beautiful and this is the main reason to have a meal there. If you can get a table at the front either inside or outside. The food, I think will get better with the present upgrade which is going on.

We arrived at the surf club without a booking and it was very busy but we managed to find a table on the balcony, outside. There were heaters but we were too far away to feel the heat. After about ten minutes someone moved so we moved close to the heater, which was lovely. I had steak, along with two... More
