Visited last night having dined there a few years earlier. Food and service was good but was an expensive night out for a family if six (6) totaling $165+ for what we would cassify as a typically standard dinner. But with that said, the quality of the food was good for a pub/RSL/SLSC type of venue.

Friday arvo couldn't have been better spent than at Nobby's s.l.s.c. With family and friends. The atmosphere was awesome, the bar staff were great, the kids enjoyed their wedges, the pokies were winning and to top it off a courtesy bus to pick us up & take us all home safely. Shout out to the courtesy bus driver who was... More

Met a group of friends for a christmas catch up. Great position though parking could be a problem. Fantastic views over the beach. Staff were very busy but not in the least bit personable. I realise that they probably have their regulars that they connect with but it is the Gold Coast so would get many visitors such as us.... More

We ordered n got our meals in about 30mins. I got a caesar salad it was very yummy! The dressing wasn't plastered... More

We were staying nearby for 3 weeks and joined as social members so that we could take advantage of all that Nobby's has to offer. Great decision. The staff are very friendly, helpful, and always checked to see what we'd been up to and how far we'd walked that day! I would particularly like to mention Peter who made us... More

Visited as a family of 4, kids had the Plucker burger, hubby Parma & myself the calamari. We all thoroughly enjoyed our meals, they were very reasonably priced, service was quick and with a smile! Would recommend and return in a heartbeat.

Thank RoobyB
