Live very close. Would love to go there more, but menu changes infrequently and offerings can be dull, although I believe they have a new chef. Pub food at restaurant prices. Family of 4 with 1-2 glasses of beer/wine for the adults (no entree) = $100, which seems expensive for pub food. Can go to the local Italian restaurant for... More

I didn't eat here, just came in for a few minutes to lose money on the pokies and look at the view. I love this place. The view is spectacular.

Terrible. If you like cafeteria food you will love Nobby's SLSC. The Beef Thai salad was ordinary and the burger connoisseur rated it as lousy.

Not sure about the last couple of reviews, we have consistently visited Nobbys at least once or twice a month for the past year and have never had a bad meal or service. Despite visiting other restaurants and surf clubs on the coast, I have never eaten a more perfect chicken schnitzel in my life!! It is Devine! The staff... More

With a wonderful location this restaurant really could offer so much more. We arrived with friends on a week night during school holidays to find the restaurant closed at 8pm and our choices of dinner were limited to fish and chips The food was ok but nothing to celebrate. I would return, but only if I didn't' have a choice.... More

Let me start by saying this is really a one star place, but my wife said her Greek Lamb Kebab was "quite nice". OK, an extra star for that. It started badly; our "reserved" table was located outside the dining area in the TAB betting area. Great for Dad perhaps, but not young kids. Anyway, they thankfully squeezed us onto... More
