“Worst night out in quite a while!”
Reviewed May 4, 2013

Worst night out I've had in quite a while. My wife spilt her drink handing the menu back to the waitress and the waitress just walked off leaving us to clean it up. Staff were rude and the seating head cramped. For the price the food was very average and ok if you like everything battered and fried. Honestly there are so many better options for the price in caloundra I'd avoid this place. The live music was awful. I was eating my steak (which was overlooked) to the hokey pokey!

Hi Niveus42,

Thank you for your feedback. I am sorry to hear that your experience at our club did not meet your expectations.

We pride ourselves on our high standards of meals and service and your comments will help us ensure that our standards are maintained with our ongoing training program.

On occasion, the 'Hokey Pokey' has been played by the Live Artists to give the kids something to dance to, but I understand this wouldnt suit all patrons song choice over dinner.

If you choose to visit the Club again, I would love to speak with you directly and take the oppportunity to amend your previous experience, please ask for me or phone me on 07 5491 8418.

Kind Regards,
Melissa Brooke
General Manager

“Great little club”
Reviewed April 14, 2013

Called in here for dinner one night. a little bit tricky and night to work out where to park so parked above the club on the hill it is not vey well lit at night. We walked down to the club and it has a very good local club feel. It seems a little old inside but dont let this put you of as the food is great and the views are lovely.

“Nice food and friendly service”
Reviewed April 6, 2013

I came here for dinner on a Saturday night with a large group of friends and family. It was a pretty busy night and was a bit noisy, but not too rowdy. The staff were very friendly and service was quick.
Our meals came out faster than expected and were lovely big meals. Most of the group opted for the chicken schnitzel, barramundi or vegie stack.
The seating was a bit crammed and was a bit difficult to get up or move about. The view over the ocean however, was very nice and kind of made up for it.

“Great meeting place, but leave the car at home ....”
Reviewed January 10, 2013

Excellent views, good food and wine, the best value during my entire visit. Not geared for children, so perhaps a child friendly zone below in the wasted areas near the pool would capture this market. Ignore the comments about the staff, as a 'pom' I noticed that many people extremely rude, not even a please or thank you. The staff the greatest asset, especially Tenille ....
