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.

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

All you can eat buffet style meals. Plenty of variety with rice, stir fries, seafood, roasts etc. Good fresh fruit selections available. Popular with the locals and cheap. It's not fine dining by any means but a pleasant place for a filling meal. No need to book.

Never seen so many pigs in all my life. Not sure what goes on here, do people not eat for a month prior to going to this joint. Yes, it is a buffet, but that doesn't excuse the behaviour of some. Management seemed very un-professional just trying to get as many people through the door as possible. I will never... More

Always a great place to eat. The smorgasbord has a fantastic array to choose from. The fresh prawns and Chinese selection is out of this world.

Have been a member of the bowling club in Forster for a while. Thought i'd take my friends there for a treat. Could not fault the choice (albeit smallish for the size of the dining room). Good selection of salads, meats, seafood and deserts. The kids likes the make your own desert option. Only drawback is that you have to... More

We called into forster in our way from the Gold Coast to Wollongong for the night. We were looking for a good value meal for us and the kids (12&14). The bowling club was recommended and it did not disappoint. Lots of variety, fresh seafood, Chinese, continental and dessert bar. Well worth it

Arrived to have dinner with our Niece, Nephew and 3mth old baby girl. Place was very full with diverse age of diners. Cuisine options from Chinese, Salads, fruit, roast meat, vegetables, party pies, nuggests, chips (fried food over greasy at times, not drained adequately) and last but not least dessert. This variety will sure satisfy the fussiest of eaters young... More
