Food was excellent, service excellent, this is a destination dining spot but excellent for locals. The refurb is great.

Spent almost $200 on meals , the chops and ribs were dry. The chips in the kids meal were still half frozen. The cheese on the pizza was burnt, the creamy garlic prawn topping on the chicken was a cold blob. Never will we eat...there again.More

We had an enjoyable dinner with family and it was great to not have to worry about driving home after a few drinks! The waiter was prompt and provided excellent service - he was quite entertaining and made us laugh too which always makes for...a great experience. A lovely club and the bistro has been done up really nicely too. Everyone was satisfied with their meals :)More

Great service friendly and comfortable. Entree and dinner you can't beat. Dehmian is professional and a character. Recommend a cocktail or two you won't be disappointed

The old club is getting a makeover and the results are very evident in the bar/bistro. The atmosphere is modern eatery and the menu is very broad. There is a weekly lunch menu plus an interesting bistro menu. Service is prompt and the food tasty...plus well presented. Prices are fair and reasonable. We were there at lunchtime on Tuesday and the sizeable dining area had a good sized crowd. This place will give several local eateries a run for their money as word gets around. Staff were friendly and attentive.More

Do yourself a favour! Service was absolutely fantastic from the Californian bar man. Honestly some of the best service I’ve had in Australia. Above and beyond. He made every person in our group feel special. The menu was great, I could easily eat there for...a couple weeks and pick something different every night. 10 people ordered and all the food came out within minutes of each other. My meal was absolutely delicious and the portion size was great. Everybody else was really happy with their meals and all of the adults commented on how impressed they were with the restaurant. They said they will all definitely be back. Unfortunately I won’t be back for quite some time because I live in QLD, but I wish they would come and take over Mooloolaba Surf Club!More

Heard the great reviews about this place and decided to check it out, we weren't dissapointed at all, there were lots of choices, extremely friendly staff, good sized meal portions and some of the tastiest cocktails around. Will definately be back as it ticks all...the boxesMore

We went to the restaurant on our last night staying in Swansea. We were not expecting too much but WOW, we absolutely loved it. The club itself was clean, modern and spacious but the food was amazing. With hubby being a chef we were surprised...at the different choices on the menu (not the normal 'club food' menu) and the taste with all of our meals including the kids cheese burger were all soooo good. Thank you for making our last night such a welcoming surprise. We only wish we were staying another night so we could come back!!More

Hidden in the back streets of Swansea, this club is undergoing a transformation and a new al a carte restaurant will open soon. Thursday night trivia night is a must.
