These places are great on holidays with the kids as they all get to eat their own choices. Everything was pleasant and there was a high turnover of popular items. Not that convenient to get a drink while eating.

We have been here several times and every time it is busy, so there is always fresh food coming out for the all you can eat buffet. A great variety for everyone, including dessert. Worth a visit if this is your type of thing.

I'm not a fan of this style of eating, but it was chosen by friends. Food quantity - limited only by stomach capacity, and good taste. Food quality - poor to average. Food type - cold seafood, including prawns, salads, Chinese (heavy goopy sauces), fried stuff (chips, fish, frozen stuff) roasts (baked pumpkin and potatoes with ham and beef that... More

First time visit to Forster, where to eat a normal dinner?? The "all you can eat deal" looked ok as we like a Buffet.We generally liked the range of choices available, including the nice fresh prawns, chips meats and deserts/ ice-creams. The vegies were overcooked in our opinion. There was no cold/fresh drinking water available in the dining room, So... More

Read the rules first you can't get a cold entree and go back for a hot main with the same plate BUT even if you had to pay for 2 plates that's a filling and cheap lunch. Green lipped mussels, ham with salad as an entree then follow up with fried rice, mongolian chicken, sweet and sour pork, fish fillets,... More

Where do I start, The club overall needs knocking down, its old cramped and needs an update. The food was very ordinary and had no atmosphere at all. Come in eat in bland surroundings and leave. Wont be going back.

The buffet style has a really excellent selection of food. It offers an extensive range and variety catering for all tastes. Visit the food section and eat as much as you want. Better to try a wide range of small almounts to savour the really good qaulity food available. The $20 price is really good value for money and caters... More

Average food, slightly overpriced. The most annoying thing was having to slice your own meat, particularly when there is many people.
