Breakfast with a view

Magnificent meal overlooking Coolum Beach at sunset. We loved it so much we came back for breakfast. Take your sunnies so you can drink in the view. Food & waiting staff top notch.

With the new bar and kitchen in full operational mode, we were very hopeful....SPLAT! With a plethora of staff trit-trotting hither tither, you would anticipate efficient service? Officious yes but hardly efficient. The imperious attitudes coupled with a ponderous cue to be seated system and the perpetuation of allowing tables to be reserved for ages without being used will always... More

Sterile atmosphere....or should I say, atmosphere lacking? Great location, efficient service, good food, if overpriced a bit...but no vibe, few smiles, nothing to call you back, or welcome your arrival. Could be so much better with minimal effort!

Went for lunch and overall had a poor experience. Table service is good however dining room noise was so loud we struggled to hear each other. No particularly noisy groups just bad acoustics. Entree we shared of Fish and Prawn cakes tasted like tinned salmon was used and no cucumber could be found in the cucumber salad- lots of bean... More

Our group thought the meals are overpriced for a Surf club. We didn't have to wait very long for the meal which was good tho wouldn't return.

We arrived for a meal on our stay at Coolum and showed straight away to a table. Orders were taken quickly and received in a timely manner. We would go back again if we were in the area. Diane NZ

We found the welcome rather bizarre. We were told in no uncertain terms the club had a no caps policy. On querying this I was advised at reception that it was " a respect thing". On pointing out that women could wear hats in church the female at reception admitted that the policy existed so that people who created a... More

The food was very good at the surf club, restaurant quality, but too expensive for a club. Most of the people at the Caravan park said the same thing, enjoyed it but won't be back, can't afford to go a couple times a week.

Thank you for taking the time to review your experience at our club. We are sorry to hear that you find the menu items a bit pricey, our prices do need to reflect that of our suppliers and the quality of our produce. We do offer a different special Monday to Thursday and have offers in our monthly booklet which... More
