The Southport Surf Club has been amongst the best family restaurants on this part of the Gold Coast for many years. We have been visiting friends and family at Main Beach for about 10 years and have eaten here at least once or twice every summer over that time.
The staff are friendly, the registration is well organised, bar service is attentive and the quality of food, for the most part, is best of breed.
It always seems that the burgers & chips, fish & chips etc are the better options. Last night the seafood pasta was rated poorly at our table, however, the other eight meals were rated as very good.
There is a need for more attention to detail with items such as coasters, menu covers etc either not on tables or in need of replacement / repair.
Ah yes, the menu...desperately in need of an update to include a greater variety of options. Less burgers and chips, more stir fry's, salads and healthy options. The wine list too could do with greater variety and consistent availability. Twice this summer our first choice wine was not available.
Still a pleasant venue, still great value, just a little tired and looking for some imagination to remain competitive.
