We ate at the Phillip island rsl today. The food was the worst food we have ever eaten I have had better side salad and chicken burger from maccers. My 1 year old son waited 45mins for his lunch every adult was served befor him we were offered refund for his meal then every staff member avoided us until we left with out our refund. His chicken nuggets were like grey tasteless rocks. I would be ashamed to serve this food.

Foods generally good, the big dining area can be a little loud but thats what you would expect in places like this. Staff are friendly and if you like pokies there is those too. Senoirs meals are great too - according to my inlaws.

In mid Jan (school hols) we went here for dinner on a Wednesday night, during our holiday. It was so busy we couldn't get a table for over 30 mins... so we booked for the following night instead.
.
The following night, we attended & the food was EXCELLENT and the staff coped well with the masses of patrons.
.
The venue was great, as were the staff, but I would not go back again during peak times owing to the long delays.. from getting a table to buying a drink.

We visited with 2 children and were seated near the small play area which was great. The kids also received a menu which served as a colouring activity and crayons. Good meal options, the standards- roast, parma, fish and chips, and garlic prawns as well as a few surprises such as stuffed chicken with camembert and prosciutto, pork belly and a haloumi and beef burger with onion jam. Bookings are a must- we rang at 4pm on a Wednesday and couldn't get a table till 8pm so we reserved one for the next night.

Our menu offers patrons several standard "old favourites" as well as dishes that are influenced by our team of international chefs promising a few surprises! We have the belief that everyone should have a good time at our RSL so if we can keep the kids happy, then hopefully we keep you happy too!

We ate here last night with the kids and it was ok. Confusion from staff re "specials of the night" when ordering and most listed desserts not available.
Food was fine. Usual RSL fare- roast of the day, Parma etc. Kids menu available and small play area.

We had such a busy week last week that we literally ran out of desserts and were awaiting delivery which is such a shame, as there are some wonderful sweet treats to enjoy after your meal. We hope next time you visit, you will be able to try our dessert range.
