Good honest no fuss filling food. Don't go here if you after a fancy deconstructed meal. But if you want a good roast or great schnitzel the this is for you

Surfers Paradise RSL is actually the oldest RSL club on the Gold Coast. Centrally located yupstairs , in Beach Road, SP, this Club is handy to everything. Recently renovated after a large fire destroyed a large part of the premises, the RSL can feed, entertain you well! Open every day - try their great breakfast for $ 10.00 for everything.... More

Dropped in here looking for a cheap, good feed. I had the chicken parmigiana and my wife the roast of the day (pork). Both meals arrived quickly, were large and tasted great. Drinks were well-priced (even got non-members and service was excellent. Typical traditional RSL club in decor which delivered exactly what we expected. We'd go back.
