Visited here with my family. Great variety of food available on the menu. Good prices and big servings. Nice family vibe. Will eat here again when I'm in the area.

RESTAURANT'S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 1 week ago

Many Thanks for our pick up and return from our accommodation plus the best meal we have ever had in a Surf Club. My husband and son had meat dishes, and I had Veggie, they where delicious. Congratulations, you have "Nailed it" :-) The location is also a winner....Gorgeous, away from the busy main streets. More

Popped in on a Saturday night for dinner. Busy but a good atmosphere, food arrived promptly, wait staff couldn't be faulted, sat near an open window & the sea breeze wafting through the window was lovely. Both had steaks cooked to perfection & the chips & salad was fresh as. Also had a win on the pokies which paid for... More

Went for a weekday lunch with a group of friends. We had a great table overlooking the beach and the meals were great. I had the eye fillet steak ($30) and it was excellent- as good as any restaurant. Add it the great location and it's hard to top.

They have great chefs for a std surf club. Atmosphere is stock std surf club, but the food! WOW. I worked with seafood for several years and it's hard to find good chefs that do it justice. The seafood pasta here is superb! A full cut in half bug sits on top of perfectly cooked prawns, calamari, scollops (not easy... More

Excellent location overlooking the beach, personned by friendly staff, but value for money has definitely taken a slide. We hadn't visited here for a while, but have been on numerous occasions over the years and were always pleased, especially with the excellent size portions at good rates. The menu had changed from our last visit - these days that usually... More

We have enjoyed a meal here each time we visited over the last 5 years and this year was below par. Staff were really nice and the view is to die for but for some reason the meal was not nearly as good as prior visits. We will try again next year and hopefully it will have improved.

My husband and I visited the Southport Life Saving Club on a beautiful spring day for lunch. If you would like a window seat it is best to book as it is quite popular. Great menu and service. The fish of the day was so beautifully cooked with delicious vegetables. The club is next to a park and there is... More
