My husband and I went to the surf club for dinner. The place was very busy but service was fast. I ordered a steak sandwich which came with chips and my husband had the roast pork. The food came very quickly but my steak sandwich was inedible , the roll was very dry and as it hadn't been buttered it... More

We attempted to dine for lunch at the surf club today. My partner was in a work singlet - nicely presented and we both had enclosed shoes on,. I had my collared singlet on. The lady on the front desk advised my partner he couldn't come in with a singlet on but didn't seem to object to my bare arms.... More

Past visits not enjoyable however they now have the food ordering and service organised with very pleasant waitresses. The food selection is varied and well presented and tasty. Recommend the Chicken Parma. Drinks reasonable and they cater for kids with a separate menu and kids drinks.

We have eaten at the Surf Club on many occasions, brunch, lunch and dinner. Always good food (pub-grub style) at a reasonable price, friendly service, great atmosphere and wonderful views if you manage a window table. Also a great place just to catch up for a drink with friends.

Yes all Surf Clubs have awesome views, but this is one of our favourites because the service is so very friendly and the food is fantastic - very family friendly too which is great when you are on holidays and the kids get a meal and icecream for $10. The seafood linguini is fantastic so is the Asian Chicken Salad,... More

Only eat here is you like noisy busy venues. It does have a good location by the beach ,friendly staff and fairly priced meals if you are a senior and good for families but not somewhere to go for a quiet evening.

Modern surroundings combined with a glass wall the whole length of the restaurant facing the beach make for a pleasant environment for lunch. Table service is provided. The food is club standard and as such is quite good but nothing fancy. We can recommend the carvery. If you want a window table, either reserve one by phone or arrive no... More
