Being a Cairns local we always enjoy taking our visiting guests to the Yorkey'. The food has never failed to impress. The atmosphere on the timber deck overlooking the boat marina and inlet are a welcome place to relax and unwind. For locals, don't forget the two for one on Mondays.

We have had lunch here several times now, sometimes with guests from down south. The Friday special can be quite a treat. Last time we had crab, chips and salad and a glass of very nice wine for $27.00. The staff are efficient. The menu is quite extensive and it's easy to find something nice to choose. The food is...

Lunchtime at Yorkeys Knob we found the boat club quite busy in the bistro area so decided to try the Tender Hooks restaurant. A very nice selection of seafood plus an exceptional beef selection. We were after a lightish lunch and two of us ordered the baguettes, prawns and chicken/avocado but for the other two the surprising dish was the... More

Great spot to eat or have a drink and watch the sunset. Meals are reasonably priced and a good variety - $12.00 oysters on Saturdays!!

Really gorgeous location but get rid of that guy ! The one behind the counter taking orders at Driftaways. Popped in 3pm Sat for a dozen oysters as they advertize "Oyster Saturday" all day for $1.00 each. Went alone and grumpy man seeming annoyed I was there to order told me I could not sit out on the deck as... More

Where do I start. The courtesy bus,rang it at 7 and it came at 8.15. So it was a late dinner that came out cold and eating seafood cold not good. Then after spending $200+ on food and drinks for three people we were ready to leave at 10.15 and the guys said oh sorry the bus isn't going back... More

My family and I went to dinner last night at this facility and we were just appalled at the carelessness and overall treatment we received from the staff at Yorkey's Knob Boat Club. To begin with, the skinny bald man with whom we ordered and paid for our food, acted like he was doing us a favour by taking our... More

Whether you prefer a red on the deck watching the sunset, a hearty meal overlooking the marina, fine dining in Tenderhooks Restaurant or just hanging about with friends in the lounge you will find this Club has a great atmosphere where the staff go that extra bit to make sure your experience there is enjoyable. The service is exemplary.

We have often eaten here for lunch, the last time in May. Great place to relax and catch up with friends. Relaxing setting on the water over looking marina. Staff are helpful and the food has always been good. It's about 15 minutes from CBD.

Sitting at a table on the deck overlooking the marina, mountains and ocean is just amazing. My husband and I visited first and though the food was lovely the service was quite slow, but they did have a large party in. However, the second time when we bought the rest of the family the service was much better and the... More
