“Impressive venue with unremarkable food.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 23, 2012

A beautiful bright and modern facility that gets packed in peak times...Without a booking you can forget it!
The crowds aren't only coming for the meals though. It's more the beautiful atmosphere of this impressive dining facility ...it is most impressive. The food is sub-par pub style cuisine. The fish is seldom fresh which is disappointing considering the commerical fishing boats only a few miles away. The boiled vegetables are blandly piled on the side of the plate...not in abundance I might add.

“Standard pub food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 18, 2012

The rsl has a large menu covering lots of different types of foods. Nothing really spectacular about the menu. It is designed to cover all tastes. Food is ok, service can be very slow during busy times. Large restaurant which again fills early with families during holiday times.

Lots of people, food is above average for an RSL and decent bar and of course a medium pokie area if you wish...

“Great service but poor food”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2012

Lovely friendly waiters but lengthy wait for meals and when they finally came we were disappointed with quality especially for the prices they were charging.
