Just over the road from Caprice with windows right on the beach front. Broad menu and big meals. It felt good to support local life saving club

Great place for relaxing, taking friends and enjoying the best of the coastline. It is not a 5 star dining experience but as a total package with the sun and surf , it is most enjoyable.A wide variety of dishes and prices to choose from, it is good value. A good place for families to dine.
Probably more enjoyable for lunch to get the full effect of surf and sun.

Our last visit to the coolum surf club 2 years ago was a disarster - vowing never to return. Begrudgingly we visited recently for a friends birthday dinner - a quiet affair. 6 diners, 6 really enjoyable meals. Staff were well trained and extremely pleasant. Restaurant has been remodeled and is really pleasant. We will return. Thank you for the turn around.

Thank you for taking the time to review the club, and thank you so much for returning after your disappointing experience.

Until just over a year ago the restaurant was leased out, however since March 2012 the surf club has taken back over the control of the restaurant and since then, due to the hard work and commitment of the staff, it has gone from strength to strength.

We very much look forward to you returning soon.

What a great surf club. We sat outside and listened to the surf while we had dinner, you can't beat that. We thought that it was a bit expensive when we looked at the menu, but the quality of the food was worth it. Without a doubt the best steaks that we've had in a long time
