The Surf Club at Coolum is like a lot of other clubs: decor, layout, people. There are some renovations happening at the moment to enhance the bistro area, which will be good. The selection on the menu was quite good, as were the specials board. Nothing out of the ordinary though. We did come in towards the end of the... More

This is a great pub on the beach at coolum. The service here is really good. The view is fantastic. The location in the beach is perfect. As a pub its a great place to have a drink. The food is OK, but it is just pub grub..

The pizza is very basic and hard base, although the topping was alright. Other meals were reasonable considering the price

Many years ago we visited the Surf Club at Coolum and have always recalled it as a very friendly establishment that was part of the community.I am pleased to say that on our visit this time we found that the club had expanded, offered great views of the beach,and the service was still of a high standard.

Over priced for what is provided and therefore no incentive to return if staying at Coolum for a holiday. The staff are friendly. Even at night, the view is worth taking in.

Typical surf club - good place for drinks overlooking the beach. Staff are friendly. Generous servings for meals but overpriced. Very family friendly.

Great place to take visitors for a drink but not a meal. Food terrible. Go for a pre lunch or dinner drink - then go elsewhere for a meal. The views are fabulous - especially with a schooner or gin & tonic in hand.
