Great Food and great Surf Club. Had the best steak and the kids meals all arrived on time together. Would have preferred to be in main room for dinner but the Club was very busy on the night we attended. Meat raffle was almost ours!!

Great view of the beach from the dining area. We went for lunch and the menu is as expected. All your favorite seafood and meat and burger dishes. The food was nice but the schnitzel was a bit over cooked. Staff attentive and helpful.

Like all the surf lifesaving clubs, the location is beachfront. The club space does not have much atmosphere and you feel as if you are sitting in a hall. Food was OK but not much to write home about.

# I suggest you BOOK it does get busy! Situated overlooking the beach, this is an excellent location for a quick inexpensive meal. Would also suit groups, there is lots of seating and you pay as you go so no tricky splitting the bill issues....More
