We decided to pop in after our beach walk and have lunch and a cold drink. Our first visit this surf club. Was slightly taken aback as was told we had to "sign up and become members" before we could go in and eat. Found it strange as we have visited many surf clubs and have never been forced... read more

This surf club is friendly and has great food. But they also care. In addition you are so well looked after that Mick their chauffeur will drive you home and enjoy keeping you safe and out of the rain. That is so even if it is only a couple of hundred yards.

Great place for a meal or beer or both with a view. Friendly people and great service. If your too far from Nobbys then give Mick a call and He'll pick you up with a smile and have a chat on the way and put a coin or two in for the club.

We attended a private function and the food & service throughout the night were fantastic! The club's facilities were great & the courtesy bus driver offered an outstanding service, a pleasant and friendly guy who picked us up and dropped us back at a time that suited us, it couldn't get any better than that!! We will be back!

Beautiful location with an amazing view of the beach. Food was well priced and the meal was lovely. It's worth booking a table because it was very busy.

We went on a miserable and rainy night however the atmosphere at the bar was wonderful. Friendly staff, great food. Glass windows at the front give great views over the beach and surfing.

We had a table by the windows overlooking Nobby beach, what a view. Food is ordered at the counter and was promptly delivered. Most of our table ( 6 ) had the daily specials, they were excellent meals and even better in value. Definitely rates as one of the best surf club dining experiences on the Gold Coast.
