Dining at Moolooaba Surf Club.

Food was pretty usual for this type of venue. Atmosphere was great overlooking the beach. One thing that really put me off was the fact that you paid for the meals by card at the table at the time of placing your order! This is a procedure that I have not come across before. This could be due to... read more

Had lunch here and it didn't disappoint any of us (party of four). Steaks were tender as was the Calamari. Wait staff here were also attentive and helpful. There was quite a big range to choose from and would suit most people if not everyone.

I felt like calamari but it wasn't available in the main choices except in a mix. The waitress pointed out an entrée that I could have a better serve of with a side of fries. It was excellent! Service was fast and the prices reasonable.

Typical fancy surf club food. We prefer Kawana Surf Club as a cheaper option. Alex Surf Club is a bit more like an RSL Club feel. Great view and prime location at Mooloolaba but parking can be a problem. If you are holidaying on the Mooloolaba strip you've got to go there at least once I guess. As a local... More

A canteen style venue with passable food and slightly advice expected prices but everyone goes for the beach views anyway so they're clearly capitalising on that.

It was not our first time there to have pre-dinner drinks. It's a good relaxed atmosphere within a modern decor right on the beach. The staff is very friendly and they make visitors feel very welcome. We'll definitely go back there...

We did not know you can just sign into this surf club but luckily the people we were with did. Its worth going in to see all the displays about surfing. The friendly bar is a good place to watch others surf and to enjoy the sea views.

Went there as part of a group of 18 for lunch on a Sunday. Being vegan, I checked their menu online and noted that they stated they would try to meet all dietary requirements and that their food is prepared on premises. Seeing that they offered toasties on their menu, I started asking the waitress if I could have one... More

Lovely meal, great atmosphere. Lovely club.. Just a little bit expensive.. I found it on par with other restaurants in Mooloolaba but they all seemed a little overpriced.
