The staff were all very friendly and pleasant and the view great during the day. The only thing is if you eat on the verandah you have to order yourself inside and pay... read more

Went here for lunch. Service was excellent. Huge menu to choose from. I had the special 200gm rump which was ok. My partner had the 350gm rump off the menu and it was smaller than mine. The peppercorn sauce was inedible (tasted off) as was the cauliflower gratin (raw). Overall we wont be back.

I have eaten at the surfclub on multiple occasions. The main reason for eating there is to fill a hole after a few beers soaking up the view of the ocean. I would never come here as a destination. Food is way overpriced, there is no table service except for a couple of table clearers. It surprises me that the... More

It was busy and school holidays great service pizza was amazing and definitely a mid range family meal price. We walked from our hotel, few drinks dinner and it was beautiful weather - nice to see young kids working and supporting local community.

Every time we are in the area we go to Coolum Surf Club for lunch. It is very good food and the staff are always friendly and helpful. The kids love the colouring in packs and it keeps them quiet while waiting for our orders. We have never had a bad meal here and there is great variety and specials.... More

Been here many times and the same food and service is just great. Friendly staff and real wood fired steak... The location is the best in Coolum so paying the price of food and drinks is expected. Will we go back.... Absolutely!

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
