“Awful.....just awful food.”
Review of Fishermens Recreation Club - CLOSED

Fishermens Recreation Club
Cuisines: Australian
Restaurant details
Reviewed December 28, 2013

Being a "Fishermans Club" one would expect reasonable quality seafood on the menu, this is not the case at Eden Fishermans Club.
We ordered the Seafood Banquet for 2 people, being as this is the most expensive item on the menu and being a "Fishermans Club" we had reasonably high expectations.
Unfortunately, there is no nice way to review this restaurant, the food was quite simply crap.
When we complained to the Waitress she told us that everything on the plate was frozen. She was very apologetic and agreed that the quality of our dish was poor.
We also had to remind the serving staff a couple of times to bring out the sauce, and the advertised Wine list was poor as basically none of listed Wines were available.
Horrible crab, rubbery dry fish and some awful scallop contraption that just tasted like cardboard.
If you're the "Chef" who dished this up, you should be ashamed of yourself.
You have been warned.

Had dinner there twice this week. Good menu, good prices, good service, good club food with wonderful views across the bay with the whales jumping about. The steaks and seafood are really good here as are drink prices.

Highly recommended.

We were staying opposite the club, walked across for 6pm dinner. Was Saturday night and in before any rush. Had window seating looking across the buildings to the sea.
Enjoyed the seafood platter for 2. Plenty of variety on the menu. Restaurant could seat 100~.
Has lift if needed to the top floor restaurant. Has wheelchair access ramp.

Pretty laid back club with an extensive menue that caters for all tastes. prices are very fair and the size of the mains are more than adequate to satisfy an appetite.
There are also good views of the bay from the dining room which if lucky you will be entertained by whales.

The Fishermans Recreation Club is opposite the Twofold Bay Motor Inn. You don't need to be a member to visit. The food was ok (fish slightly overcooked - chicken teriaky was fine) Is ok if you want a bit better than a pub meal for a reasonable prize. Lots of families attended – if you don’t like kids stay away.
