“It's a Winner”
Reviewed September 24, 2013 via mobile

Tuesday night $15 Parma night at the Surf Club is an absolute winner. We got there at just after 6.00pm and the place was packed, we hadn't booked and thought oh well we'll have to go somewhere else, but one of the staff said hang on and grabbed a table for us as a table was leaving, we thanked her very much and appreciated her help (great service already).
We were lucky to get in and decided to order before it got to busy. Drinks were very reasonably priced and the food was fantastic, everyone enjoyed their meal. The service was faultless. We will look to return for another meal before we leave on Sunday.
10 out of 10 and we will definitely recommend the Surf Club,
David & Nic

“Great spot”
Reviewed September 21, 2013 via mobile

This place is a must visit for meals and a drink or two,we had some friends over from NZ and they loved it the meals were very good and the service had people who were happy and informative the times we were there were good and we travel from one side of Cairns to go out there so the club gets our dollar,keep it up it leaves a lot of eateries in Cairns far behind.

“Glad we dined there”
Reviewed September 14, 2013

We walked past the Surf Club on our first night at Palm Cove but thought it would just be your typical pub fair so decided against dining there and instead went to Ming's Dynasty, the sole Chinese restaurant which we regretted. We met up with a few tourists by the pool the next day and they raved about the Surf Club so we decided to give it a try. We dined there on a Friday night where the night's special was lamb shanks which hubby ordered. He loved it. I had the seafood basket and loved it too. Our daughter had the kids meal of crumbed chicken and chips and she finished the whole serve, which was surprising considering she would typically demolish the chips but not the chicken. A reviewer commented that the Surf Club was noisy. We dined at about 6:30pm. It was buzzing but I wouldn't say very noisy as my family and I could still be heard when conversing. It's definitely not a place to go on a quiet date - it's after all, similar to a pub's bistro.

We were told that Wednesdays are steak nights. It's unfortunate that we are heading back to Melbourne on Tuesday or else we would definitely be back there again.

All in all, it was a very pleasurable meal and great value too. The staff were friendly and the food was served very quickly.

Will definitely dine there again on our return trip to Palm Cove next year.
