Traditional bowling club, 2 choices of food, either buffet or single meals. We opted for single meals and paid less than $18 in total for salt & pepper squid, chips and salad, plus chicken snitty, chips and salad. The meal was fresh, hot and there was plenty on the plate. Absolute value for money and the meal was delicious. We... More

Danny's is one of only a few all-you-can-eat buffets in the Manning/ Great Lakes area. Situated in the Bowling Club, the restaurant itself lacks finesse, the tables set close together in a huge hall, the cutlery given out in paper sleeves.

A very interesting Bowling club with a Family orientated Restaurant, all you can eat with typical Chinese style food, fresh cooked prawns, a simple salad bar & desert bar consisting of Pavlova, supermarket-bought cheesecake with some cup cakes & mousse with fresh cream.

Disgusting, arrived about 7.30 pm, paid and checked the Bain Marie. Food was cold, overlooked and tough. Most dishes appeared to pre prepared items with a few meat dishes thrown in. Even the noodles were tasteless. Meal repeated on me all nite.

My husband and I ate here each night for the 2 nights we stayed in Forster. The club was only a few minutes drive from our motel so very convenient. I normally do not like buffet meals and the food is usually very stodgy and doesn't always taste fresh. Here the salads and seafood were very fresh and tasty. The... More

Scruffy bargain hunting clientel which would have made Homer Simpson feel at home. The food was reasonable, the roast pork was well had a strange texture and the prawns quite tasteless although they looked attractive enough.

Great selection of foods, bottomless soft drinks, kids were all happy feasting on a little of everything..and even the big adult kids enjoyed stuffing themselves. Desserts were a great way to end the night. Will be definitely returning soon.
