“My experience”
Reviewed March 12, 2013

My meal was great and good size. Thought having fruit on the kids meals was a great idea. However i think it is all a bit overpriced. One of our meals was a $20 fishermans basket and it didn't have any fish. it was very small for the cost. Apart from that...everything was nice, large, great view.

“Outstanding!”
Reviewed March 10, 2013

Usually when you visit an RSL Club, your expectations are not high. From the moment we arrived at Ballina RSL, we were treated like Guests! We were given an escorted tour of the facilities available prior to being seated in the Restaurant. The service was excellent and the food was of a standard usually found in stand alone Restaurants.... Well done!

“Nice location. Great Gluten Free Brekky!”
Reviewed February 25, 2013

Even though we arrived bang on 11. They still allowed us to order breakfast which was very much appreciated. We enjoyed the lovely location by the river. I appreciated the gluten free options which were very good for breakfast. Thank you.

“5 Prawn Twisters for $20”
Reviewed February 19, 2013

Had the Twisted Prawns thought for $20 would get a decent number of prawns, But when plate arrived ONLY 5. Yes 5 along with salad & not so crispy chips. And they were not HUGE prawns either.
Prawns may be a little exie at the moment but these 5 would have only cost tops $5 maybe & yes I know I know there is labour etc etc BUT at the end of the days it still was only 5. The rice paper they are wrapped in make them look really long but the end have nothing in them

“Cheerful & pleasant”
Reviewed January 13, 2013

Always get a good feed here, quick and interesting enough. Have a band (weekends?) so adds to the vibe. Not daggy, nice water views particularly from tables at the windows. All up, recommended for a meal out when you don't want to cook and not pay a heap somewhere.
