I chose Yorkeys Knob Boat Club as my wedding venue & couldn't be more happy. There is not a moment we would take back. The staff were amazing, easy to deal with & had a great night along with our guests. Canapés & mains were delightful. Everything went easy sailing. If we could relive it every year it would be...

The setting for the club is fabulous, with views out over the Coral Sea and the many boats moored at the Marina. The Restaurant service & food unfortunately detracts from that experience. Service is very slow and the food overpriced and ordinary. We have been visiting on & off for years and while chefs and staff change, nothing else does.

With the exception of Natalie, the staff are disinterested and aloof. We did not feel welcome, in fact it seemed that having customers was the... More

Popped in for dinner. No reservation made but were able to squeeze the 4 of us in. Tacos were great cause you made them yourself as you went. Ribs special was very tasty and mum had the seafood basket. Very reasonable price. 4 mains and drinks for $100.

We've visited Cairns 3 times over the last 5 years and make it a point to have lunch at the Boat Club, preferably on a sunny day. Located at the marina, it is a picturesque setting and there is plenty of room to spill outside under cover. The bar menu is very reasonable with a good selection but we have... More

Great place for an afternoon drink and to listen to some live music. Nice to watch the boats going for a sail on a nice day.
