We had been to the sailing club a few years ago and were glad that it hadn't changed! This time we went for a family lunch and the fabulous view from the deck on a clear sunny day is hard to beat. We like that it has the casual atmosphere of a club (bistro, drinks at the bar, kid-friendly) with good quality food. Will definitely go there again on our next visit to Airlie!

The Sailing Club serves your typical food you find at any pub throughout Brisbane. The salt and pepper calamari were tasty, but the accompanying chips and salad were not the best. My boyfriend's steak was a good cut but a little tough (not rested). Prices were a bit much for lunch but very reasonable if you were there for dinner. The calamari were $17 with the lunch special and a 400g steak was $28. Nice place but I prefer Sorrento's!

Went here for a casual Sunday lunch where I ordered the salt and pepper calamari was amazing. My partner ordered a steak sandwich which had a hair in the middle of it. The staff never made a drama of it and offered a replacement meal or money back. I would reccomend dining here.

Whitsunday Sailing Club is located on a point at the end of the bay in Airlie Beach and is a 5 minute stroll from the Esplanade eating strip. Its location gives you the best view in town - the islands, yachts at moorings and a look back at the beach and town. The balcony is the best place to eat, so book ahead.

The food is full a la carte on most days with a good selection of meals and on Wednesday night is Roast of the week. Food is good, atmosphere amazing and live dinner music dinner dance on the last Friday of each month and an open mike with live music on some Sundays. Also has pokies if you want a flutter.

Joining fee is low and members get discounted food and drinks.
