“Good value if you choose wisely”
Reviewed July 23, 2014

We visited twice while staying nearby in January 2014. For lunch I chose a steak sandwich and it was good value and delicious as I was starving because we had just arrived in town. The next night 7 Jan we arrived to find the place packed so we were lucky to get a table for two on a Tuesday night. However we made the mistake of ordering crumbed fish which was vastly more crumb than fish! Choose wisely.

“Too expensive”
Reviewed June 30, 2014

A surf club is supposed to offer affordable meals & drinks. This club charges top dollar for both, but doesnt offer top service, the restaurant service is non existant really. It never has happy hour or drink specials. So drinks are always over priced. The roast is cheap but very average, steak was supposed to be medium rare but was burnt on outside and the rest was raw.

management1298, Manager at Maroochy Surf Club, responded to this review, July 1, 2014
Thankyou for your feedback. As an active surf club, our pricing across our food and beverage is in line or more competitive with all other surf clubs on the coast. We do have a champions hour (happy hour) every Sunday afternoon, and provide FREE live entertainment 4 nights a week, along with nightly food specials which you can find on our website. We also cater to the seniors on the coast with 5 x $12 lunch specials on Mondays and Tuesdays, accompanied by a "chook raffle". We respectfully disagree with your "top dollar" comment, as our pricing is below or comparable to other Clubs or Hotels, on top of the fact that we offer unspoilt ocean views which you would be hard pressed to beat, whilst still maintaining a competitive offer to locals and visitors alike. It is disappointing to hear your steak was not cooked to your liking, our staff are more than happy to rectify any unsatisfactory meals, had they been notified. Unlike other licensed venues our Club’s sole purpose is to raise funds to keep our beaches manned and every cent of our profit is donated to the Surf Life Saving Club of which “41” lives were saved over summer with equipment brought from the valued dollars spent here at the Club from people like yourself. Thanks once again for the feedback.

Kind regards.

Reviewed June 30, 2014

If your looking for good value food and entertainment with stunning views this is your place. Pizza made fresh is a great choice along with other daily specials. Friendly local club with interstate and overseas visitor's made welcome. A must visit during any sunshine Coast holiday

“Ok”
Reviewed June 25, 2014 via mobile

Very ordinary food at high prices
'Wild Barra' had been tamed frozen and crumbed a long time ago. The snapper had suffered a similar fate. Do your self a favour and go to a Resraurant for a little more money
