Stopped in here by chance and glad we did, good lunch menu offering plenty of choice and awesome service. Plenty of ‘special’ meal deal nights on offer. Large outdoor dining area, well presented bar and plenty of tables available. Off street parking available.

Great location! Great food and prices are quite cheap, which is good!! One of the only places along the strip that has air conditioning ( which is great when it’s super hot ) also has outdoor seating with water views.

More like a open pub than a beach club. Good food with a little wait because it is a very bust place at times. Food was good though. Beer was very cold and bar staff nice and helpful. Just don't expect 5 star cuisine at...More

We stayed at Peppers which is just a few doors down from the surf club. We chose to eat here as it was affordable amongst a lot of other restaurants that are more fine dining and expensive. Menu offers a good range of bistro meals...More
