Eating at the yach club exceeded our expectations. We had gone there to try to be part of the Wags free sail, but it was cancelled due to bad weather. We really enjoyed the dinner at the Yachtie however. The fish was excellent and the lobster tail in coconut was simply delicious. We also tried the lamb and the duck... More

Recommended by the Captain of The Lady Douglas. Friendly staff, reasonably priced drinks and food. On the waters edge.

A beautiful early evening vista - get there before the sun is gone. Extensive menu to suit most palates and very prompt, friendly service. Very good club-style food. Salads were complex and interesting. Sashimi was exceptionally good. We had three entres and with one shared that was sufficient. Very affordable and good value.

We've dined at the Yacht Club on lots of occasions over the past few years. This visit we found "The Yachty" has not only got a new chef but an awesome flavour packed menu & a smart new bar. Great crew & look forward to many more return visits.

You never know with clubs to what you are going to get. Well, the PDYC surpassed all my expectations. Ketafi wrapped prawns, fresh salad was just amazing. We all enjoyed our meals and the service was impeccable

Went here on spur of the moment following positive reviews. Really glad we did! 4 kids & 4 adults, long tables, kids menu & specials menu. A relaxed atmosphere in the Yacht Club however the food was suprisingly restaurant quality. Friendly staff, bucket of prawns for $20 which were fresh & delicious. The view was spectacular, plenty of grassed area... More

Don't bother, whilst the location is great both the food and staff are lacking. Obviously pre-packaged frozen food in a lot of cases, the wait staff were fine but the bar staff are in desperate need of some hospitality / customer service training. The take away pizza we got after leaving this place was great!

Simon, Thank you for your comment but I have no idea where you get your ideas from! Are you sure you came to the Yacht Club? We are on the Inlet out of town... The Chefs here work from 7am till midnight preparing all ingredients for their gorgeous cuisine from scratch. I have been in the industry for 20 Years... More

We were recommended this place after a river cruise the night before so decided to try it with two very tired kids on our last night before heading home. All meals came out quickly and it was great to see a menu that didn't just include deep fried everything for everyone (especially kids). Can highly recommend the lamb back strap... More

We went for dinner there and the place was very nicely set out. They had fairy lights over the grass and tables out so you could look out onto the river and the sunset. The food was yummy but a bit overpriced.

The Port Douglas Yacht Club is a unique and beautiful venue, located on the Dickson Inlet. Rick Preen our amazing new caterer has recently come on board, so do yourself a favour, come down have a Beer, Wine or Cocktail and sample Rick's wicked cuisine! If you're interested in holding function here, you have come to the right place. Send me an email and I will be sure to give you a call. Look forward to seeing you at "The Yachty"!
