We had a great lunch of chicken schnitzel, and I had the pumpkin tart with goats cheese, which was scrummy. We had a few drinks, and made a profit on the deal when we won $91 on the pokies and also took a small Keno win. Great atmosphere and very friendly staff.

Visited(from down south) for lunch for first time since renos completed. Atmosphere destroyed. Could have been any RSL/Services club. Prices have skyrocketed. Table service hasn't made meals come out any quicker. Very few patrons - we arrived at 12.30 and got a window seat! It was like a retirement home. Hardly anyone under 40 yo. Only saw 2 toddlers. Obviously... More

Once again the surf club has over delivered we never miss having a breakfast lunch or evening meal when in the vicinity. Also great evening entertainment in a safe and responsible environment a number of other venues on the sunny coast could learn a lot from this establishment.

great venue, great food, great location! Had a private function here and it was AWESOME! The staff were brilliant, bouncers a wee bit over zealous at times but just doing their jobs. The food was superb and ample. Many of our group ate and drank in the main area and we were all impressed. A trip to Mooloolaba is not... More

The Surf Club is good for a pub style meal - reasonably priced, reasonable quality and wonderful views over the sea.

Fun time to have a drink, but not enjoyable to have to line up to order fried food in every shape and form. The food was still enjoyable and the service was quite good once we finally ordered after waiting 30 mins in line. It was a little pricy for what was expected.

We came for a few beers but not to eat.Checked out the menu and it seemed good value and sounded nice.The staff were very friendly and accommodating but the view over looking the beach is what we went for.
