This is not your average club bistro style food, we had dinner at the downstairs Drift Cafe, our meals were delicious and full of flavour and one the best meals that we had during our stay at Port Macquarie.

This is a an excellent place to relax in in summer. The pokies are fun, the bars well run and the food is excellent. The Chinese "all you can eat" on the top floor is very good value for money and the quality and variety of food is outstanding! This Club is a 'must visit' place.

Re vamped restaurant looks great. New sushi train, more variety of food but still lots of the favourites to choose from. Plenty of variety on offer, something for everyone. Salads, roasts, Chinese...heaps more. Oh and great desserts.

We had dinner twice at the downstairs restaurant and really enjoyed each visit. Each staff member we came across was welcoming and efficient, the decor was great, the kids enjoyed the playground and the meals were large and tasty. The pasta was particularly good. Pricing was reasonable. The only thing I noticed that wasn't wonderful was that the cloth chairs... More

This was a great restaurant but very busy as we chose a lunch where it was discounted. The food selection was huge, fresh and plentiful. I finished with a huge helping of apple crumble and custard. YUMMY So much to eat, friendly helpful staff even though they were all very busy
