The Sailing Club is a nice place to share a drink with friends. The beer/drink prices are reasonable, the food is OK/good.

Had the trout and chips and the salt and pepper calamari before, very good. Tonight we had the gnocchi with chicken and mushrooms and porcini mushroom and feta pasta...absolutely the best meal in Airlie Beach. The guys and girls at the sailing club are always friendly and a breath of fresh air, the view and dining experience can't be outdone

Loved the classic beef burger and calamari salad but the in-laws thought the Caesar salad was just average - the chicken wasn't breast meat and had the skin on, which was tough and chewy.

Lovely food, very reasonably priced and the view of the ocean is beautiful. There was a band playing when we were there on Sunday and my husband and I spent the most enjoyable afternoon listening to them. Very friendly staff

This place is the most friendly place in Airlie Beach. Very laid back with fabulous food at very reasonable prices. Specials every day to back up the great menu. Congrats to the chef. Cheap afternoon drinks sitting on the back balcony, what more could you want?

Breathtaking views over the Coral Sea with helpful friendly staff.. Luncheon and I had the chicken and Camembert in filo, my husband the scallops and chorizo with pasta....both 5 star. Would suggest a reservation to ensure you are on the balcony. Worth a visit 👍🏼

This club had divine views for eating, a family friendly atmosphere and a close walk to Airlie beach. We all had burgers which was delicious and good value for money.
