Lunch Special not so special

We thought we would try the advertised $8.95 week day lunch special. I ordered the fish and chips and my wife the chicken schnitzel. Schnitzel was OK - nothing special. Fish and chips terrible. The tiniest flathead tails I have ever seen wrapped in a soggy batter and soggy chips. We won't be back.

Lunch was extremely poor quality. My partner had grilled Atlantic salmon but unfortunately is was drowned in around two cups of hollandaise sauce. I had a wagyu burger that tasted of nothing but cheap pepper - it was really unpalatable- served with this were cold fries served on a bread board. Overall very poor food for not much change from...

I recently went to the Southern Cross for dinner with my family (which the family almost attend every week), I had roast pork and the vegetables were cold and not cooked properly. The seafood basket my husband had was full of chips, very little seafood.My grandson had chicken schnitzel which was over cooked but camouflaged by dark gravy. On one... More

Went to the one at Jammo and usually it can be okay but lately its been pretty poor. The service is always excellent but the food isnt so good anymore. Why ask how I want my steak done if you are just going to cook it well done anyway? I'd send it back buck you never know what would happen... More

I was taken here on Easter Saturday, when many restaurants in Canberra were closed, by a friend who as a member. We enjoyed a very pleasant meal of the fish of the day, with chips, and then a creme caramel for dessert. The fish was nicely grilled and my desert had the crispy topping just how I like it. My...

My first visit to this club ....I was impressed. I was attended as an interstate guest speaker for a not-for-profit organisation and found the meals and service to be very, very good - quite unexpected. I didn't get the chance to check out all of the club's facilities but noticed a few very large restaurants. I look forward to returning... More

Great selection of food to choose from. Salad & hot veggie bar that you can help yourself too. Seems to be a very popular spot. Area for kids to play with Playstation to entertain them.

We enjoyed a Saturday night dinner at the Thai restaurant upstairs at the SCC in Woden. All the usual favourites including fish cakes with some very tasty chilli lamb chops.

It was about time the Southern Cross Club utilised the magnificent location down by Lake Burley Griffin for outdoor dining. While the set up is well done, there was insufficient shade the afternoon we visited - mid February, and the presence of smokers was very unpleasant. The orders for the food are taken and you are provided with a buzzer.... More
