A delightful summer lunch with 8 ladies was very relaxing and delicious!
A club member booked a lovely " marina" fronting table looking onto expensive ' boys sailing toys'!
Good service on entering - was fairly quiet then but filled up later on. Menu is fairly extensive with good prices. There is verandah seating also but our table was slightly inside restaurant and could appreciate the A/C for a rather hot day. Nice ambience , and decor. SYC has all the usual amenities of clubs on the Gold Coast. Well run also! Reasonable amount of parking directly outside though fills up quickly at busy times.

We loved it - the specials were fabulous, the setting is beautiful. Can't wait until our next visit, we would definitely eat there again.

Our group of 7 had a table for the first time here for the special NYE dinner event. They seated us outside under the terraced area, which was absolutely wonderful with the evening view of marina and water so close, especially it was a bonus to have a glimpse of fireworks in the background that went around 9pm nearby. The table was decorated with some fun paper caps etc., and the music was on most of the time by a live band, creating busy atmosphere (albeit the repertoire was a couple of decades out...).
However, the food in general was less than expected, as it lacked in variety and it was more like a school canteen than a A$89 p.p. 'seafood buffet', with some piled up prawns, roast beef, breadrolls etc., together with completely overcooked vegetable stir fry...... and we still had to queue up to get to any food. Many things about the restaurant can be improved, but we did enjoy the night, it was still a reasonably priced spot in the area for the night, and the view is always going to be quite special there.

We went for a 60th celebration with a large group of friends and the whole party was catered for by the club. The food that was served was delicious, the staff were very professional and the Yacht club was a great place to eat and look out on the boats all moored there. If we came down to here again I think that I would have a meal there.
