Found this place by accident as my partner and I were leaving the beach and stopped in for a drink and bite to eat. The staff was friendly and efficient, the food was delicious, and the outdoor dining made the most of the beach setting. Highly recommend.

If your after a pub counter meal, than the Surf life saving club is the place to eat!! Well worth the walk from the main drag, just a short stroll down four mile beach!! Very casual, you can dine/drink straight off the beach, no glamming up necessary!! Family friendly. Great value Aussie pub menu with a twist, would recommend the... More

First impressions weren't great as looked a bit disorganised and there was a guy standing at the entrance looking vague when I said hi. I said "Sorry I thought you worked here" and he said "I do, I'm the manager". Anyway we ordered and then went to our table and the food was amazing which made up for my first... More

Relaxing atmosphere. Lots of room to move particularly when you have a pram. Lots of menu choices to suit all budgets

What a great find. Very reasonable prices and a great lunch. brilliant for families and right on 4 Mile Beach. Informal, open, sunny and easy. Pub grub, but good pub grub.

My partner and I along with our 5 month old decided to head here for dinner, both after a recommendation from friends that recently ate there and also a vast array of good reviews. Upon arrival we where greated with a smile and that's where the good stopped. My partner ordered the "calamari" at best you could get better from... More

We always come here for a meal when in Port Douglas. The menu has changed this year slightly but it did not disappoint. I opted for the salt and pepper calamari and my partner had the mixed seafood meal. They are reasonable meal sizes for the price and the atmosphere is relaxed. Great for everyone to eat at when in...

Good efficient service, wide selection of food including a broad selection of delicious desserts. Great for families and couples alike. No nonsense, causal dining which is good value and prime positioning next to a park on the beach front.... did I mention the view? Definitely worth a visit or two.

Arrived about 7ish, not many here, menu boring, ordered cheeseburgers - yuck! Quick to close up so packing up around us, go elsewhere, PD has wonderful restaurants and unfortunately this place has lost a lot of its sparkle.
