Description: WINNER BEST CLUB SUNSHINE COAST AND BEST DINING QLD 2017. Our Beachfront Restaurant serves lunch and dinner 7 days a week. We have an exciting menu ideal for those long, leisurely lunches or special dinners. You’ll find something on our menu to suit all tastes, from our all New Tapas menu to fresh local seafood and homemade gourmet pizzas. Our wide variety of salads, juicy steaks and our fabulous house made desserts will be sure to tantalise your taste buds. Our surf club is the ONLY surf club in Australia to feature a genuine wood fired chargrill, all our steaks are cooked over this iron bark fuelled coal pit giving them a sweet smokey taste you won’t find anywhere else. You can watch our chefs cooking up your delicious steaks on this impressive piece of equipment in our state of the art open kitchen. You can enjoy our delicious food listening to the waves on our stunning deck or inside where we’ve created a comfortable seating area with uninterrupted views of the ocean.

Should have been called avacado roll as that’s all you could taste. 2-3 prawns on it, couldn’t even taste them so very stingy on prawns. A rip off for $25

Thank you for taking the time to review your visit with us.
Our Mooloolaba Prawn roll generally has 5-6 prawns in it (depending on size) so I can assure you that your comments have been passed to our head chef for investigation. I'm sorry we couldn't fix the issue at the time and only wish this had been brought to our attention on the day as we could have happily rectified the problem.
We thank you for supporting Surf Lifesaving and hope this won't deter you from visiting again in the future.

We enjoyed dinner at the surf club while on holidays staying nearby. The restaurant was very busy but the staff coped well with the number of people. The view of the ocean from the restaurant is spectacular. Book first. It’s popular.

We went to the surf club with low expectations for food but reading some reviews thought how bad could it be.
Didn’t get to eat, walked out after receiving condescending responses from the children that run the place and “couldn’t care” attitude from the senior staff downstairs.
Not to mention the chuckles from staff when I returned a glass with lipstick on it... they even tried to rinse it off and return it to me...

Thank you for taking the time to review your visit with us, we're sorry you we're disappointed.
All our managers and supervisors are highly trained and experienced in their field and are certainly not of an age that would be classed as a "child".
Our staff are there to provide a service to our customers, however they should not have to put up with being verbally abused and spoken to in a rude and aggressive manner when they are trying to help and do their job. Our staff members are human too and their responses can be a reflection of the way they are treated.
I can assure you the department manager will be following up on the glass you returned with lipstick on it, please accept our apologies as this is certainly not our policy.
