“Good food at reasonable prices”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 29, 2014

The Surf Club does not pretend to offer fine dining but it does offer good food at reasonable prices. Drinks are at bar prices as well. I purchased a casual membership for $5- which enabled me to also purchase package drinks. The place is informal ,relaxed and at times busy. During our stay we visited on a number occasions and found it to be a pleasant experience.

“Not so cheap and cheerful”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 28, 2014

Recently renovated and in an excellent location. However, very noisy and overpriced. Good for those not interested in an intimate dining experience or quality food

“Good food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 27, 2014 via mobile

This place offers good food at a good price ... It's varied in menu choices so you can have something small or a feast ... We went on a Sunday arvo and they have a live band outside ... Very entertaining and great views

“Value for Money”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 21, 2014

Lovely new clean restaurant with beautiful views over the Ocean.
Has daily specials which are different each day.We tried 3 different ones.Rump steak,Battered Barramundi both of which came with fries and salad and the Sunday Roast which was Pork with gravy and vegetables.All good sized meals and only $15.00 each.
If you have other meals and eat between 5pm-6pm you get a 10% discount and if you have children the kids meals are half price between 5pm and 6pm and come with a drink and iceblock as well so great value for families.Service is friendly and quick.

“new breakfast buffet was not good”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 18, 2014

Having read previous reviews mostly about lunches being good except for one titled "won't be coming back"... this too was our breakfast experience.
The buffet offered on sundays was very pricey for a family and didn't even include tea or coffee! The food was almost cold in some of the bain marees (obviously not efficiently heating) and the sausages tasted off. The pancakes were rubberey and inedible. When asked how are you enjoying your meal, we were completely honest about all of the above. We were told by the manager that they did consider the tea and coffee should be included... so why didn't they???We had to really push to get him to recognise the other faults, which he then reluctantly returned a third of our payment??? Anyway he concluded that its all a bit of a trial as they have only started doing the breakfasts so with some better management this may improve. I wish them success because the view and seating etc was great.
