We went for Dinner on a Sunday night and were very surprised that the last courtesy bus home is at 7.15pm. Unusual to say the least. The food was ok however not the best club in town.

Great club with two places to eat, we ate at the first one and the choice of food is fantastic. The staff are very friendly and helpful, we felt right at home. The steaks were cooked perfectly, the place was busy on the night we were there and rightly so. It is a great place to eat.

Loved the new look at the Port City Bowling club, its stylish ,bright and modern. Drift food was really enjoyable, we sampled, steaks, Burgers , Rissoto and Fish all were good. The only improvement would be a better choice of cakes and desserts, each time we have been in they have been the same. Staff are friendly and helpful and... More

We visit Port Macquarie regularly and were pleasantly surprised by the bowling club's new dining facility. Tastefully furnished with good tables and chairs, it was a nice change from having to eat upstairs. My husband had the pork cutlet and I had duck. Both meals were better than most club meals. Service was excellent.

Recently refurbished, the downstairs restaurant is limited in selection and very expensive, wouldn't recommend, however, the all you can eat buffet upstairs is brilliant ! Huge variety of foods, great service, beautiful views over the ocean, have to book in during peak seasons and weekends.

The food was good pub fair, very reasonably priced and served as quickly as could be expected (under 30 minutes) given the large number of patrons. The dining area is quite small and it was difficult to get a table early due to the large number of visitors during the school holidays. It would seem sensible to open up an... More
