We are members of the Southport Surf Club just around the corner from the Yacht club so decided to try it instead. It's a bit more 'up market' than the Surf Club but a similar set-up. You sign in at the start ( unless you are a member of another yacht club). Menu prices are a bit more expensive but... More

This is a lovely place to meet with friends or family for a wonderful casual dinning experience. Food was delicious and service was quick. The view of the yachts while dining is lovely. Highly recommend it

I love this club. Love the atmosphere. The staff are great. Food lesser. Share platter was bland at best and pretty ordinary. Oysters Kirkpatrick dry and tough. Bugs dry. Prawns fine but obviously from frozen and oysters natural were ok but on the small side. The brains were ok but the "nimbin cheddar mousse" was foul. Dry, crumbly and tasteless.

What a beautiful location, especially to view the amazing sunsets on the Gold Coast. The restaurant is in a perfect location overlooking the harbour, it is nice to be able to enjoy dinner whilst admiring all the boats out in front. The wait staff were very friendly, it was a very busy night the night we were there but we... More

We went to breakfast with extended family as we live locally and thought a walk with Breakfast would be nice. First you are received at the entrance asked to prepay and handed a plate. We were not shown to a table, no table setting and cutlery up at the bar. The offerings were dismal, there was no egg options just... More

Thank you for your feedback GoldCoastFee, Sorry to hear you were disappointed with your breakfast experience with us. We do have guests pay for their plates at the counter before being seated, guests are then directed to choose where they would like to sit ~ settings are not on the tables, as a lot of guests also do just come...

We have been members for years and have watched the changes, you have a great outlook of the marina with. Sunday's they have a BBQ on the pontoon and the normal lunch menu, so you have plenty to choose from.

It's been pretty quiet most times I have been to the Yacht Club. They have a fantastic position overlooking water and feel they could do more with it to attract more people. Lacks atmosphere. Food is ok.
