We decided to have our post wedding day brunch at Nobby's Surf Club on the balcony and what a success it was! Thanks to the fantastic events team, staff and chefs, all our guests were treated to a delicious assortment of platters based on what we felt would suit the day. All our guests have raved about the location and... More

We visited the location many times for a drink and ate just twice as the food was expensive and overall disappointing.

We had wonderful food at this surf club, the shared starter plates are some of the best we've had. The driver of the courtesy bus is absolutely wonderful too, Mike, and went out of his way to accommodate us in the pouring rain. We'll be going back again very soon :)

It's a bit of a leap for a Canadian to say surf clubs are an introduction to Aussie culture, but bear with me. It's like going to a Canadian legion or an American veterans hall - you look around and know that here are stories to tell. Add an incredible beachview, discounts for 'members' and you feel that you're part... More

It pains me to write this but I don't understand the reasoning behind the new menu. Gone is my staple, and your crowning dish, the bowl of wedges, replaced by '"Patatas Bravas" in a tiny bowl that can no longer satisfy 2 mildly peckish people. I get it, you use about 1/4 of the potato, and the higher price ($10.50)... More

Loved coming down to the surf club for a couple of bevs with the crew this weekend. Friendly staff, cheap drink specials and amazing beer battered fries. 10/10 for the courtesy bus. We will definitely be back!

We booked a table and after some confusion over the booking we were seated. The veggie burger was delicious. The staff were friendly enough. It's a very busy noisy place but we enjoyed it.

Sensation place on the GC for a Sunday arvo beer. Smaller club, nice and quiet. Cold beer served with a smile. Huge balcony with live music to boot! Not as big and flash as some of the nearby surf clubs but a waaay better atmosphere.
