Sensational Surf and Turf - Rib Fillet w/ prawns and Moreton Bay bugs, and the seafood pasta - our best sellers. We certainly appreciate your feedback with the orders and table numbers - this will be discussed at our staff meeting today. Brilliant.

Right on the sand at Main Beach, well worth a visit with kids for easy basic meal overlooking the waves. Small but attractive enough menu and food is great. Tip: join the club for $10. You’ll save that on the discounts on drinks and meals...More

We do not discriminate! A review of your visit has been completed, our CCTV footage and reservations diary differs significantly to your feedback. We receive many positive reviews from families and there experiences. Not everyone is a happy person.

What a fantastic review - booking a table in advance is very important, however, all our tables offer the same incredible view. Community Clubs in Queensland do require visitors to sign in with a valid ID - no big deal. Great review,

Whether it's the view, food, service, atmosphere - this is our first place to visit when we come from South Australia. Friendly staff, great food and you can see the whales! Very relaxed, quality dining, and kids are welcome.
