We frequently visited the Port City Club and found and found it to be a great place to relax and have a cool drink. The Thursday steak n ight was a great meal not too expensive.

We went to the buffet two nights. Wide range of buffet food and clearly very popular - packed both week nights. Fabulous fresh prawns, and some very pleasant chinese style roast duck and pork belly. Limited salad options for those wanting to eat relatively healthily.

The club has just been beautifully refurbished with a new restaurant and cafe downstairs and a play area for the kids. The Smorgasboard upstairs has changed hands and has a bigger and better variety of dishes including a chocolate fountain. Wonderful friendly staff to help with anything they can...plus the courtesy bus....Its Great little Club!

The buffet consisted of a decent variety of different food but most hot dishes were lukewarm. The desserts were also disappointing. staff were also not very friendly. We went on "seafood night" which provided fresh crab, prawns and mussels although this would prove popular and good value to those who like seafood, it would not be enough to get me... More

Port city is a great club. Now it has been upgraded it is better than ever. Big bars, lots and lots of seating with an eatery downstairs and it's trademark smorgasboard restaurant upstairs. The restaurant is great for families and hungry travellers, and you don't have to be a member to eat there. Sign in and get a weeks free... More

Your staff at the front desk did not give us any help about your facilities, nothing about food choices or the layout of your establishment. We had to walk back and stand in line again only then did we get any assistance. You can tell we were out of towners when we swiped our id. We choose the buffet .sorry... More

Tiger Buffet is great value, we went on Wednesday night and enjoyed the Seafood Buffet. Crisp fresh prawns, nicely cooked mussels and swimmer crabs. Add this to what appears to be the standard buffet ranging across crackling pork belly through to sushi and you have an amazing selection. For $27.50 you get the same quality as have had at Sheraton... More

Thought we'd try this restaurant (downstairs) as we were staying around the corner. Ordered 2 steaks, they were cooked well, but both were truly half gristle and fat. We feel sorry for the chef as he obviously is being supplied with sub standard meat. Whoever is supplying this restaurant needs to be replaced. Passed our comments onto the waitress, hope... More
