We were all quite disappointed in the quality of food. Steaks were terrible. Service OK. Nice views. Wine and beer very expensive compared to other surf clubs. We would not return to this venue.

I always make a point of visiting Nobby's when I am in Gold Coast, the beach around there is stunning and Nobbys is well located to nip up for a drink after a swim. The prices are pretty cheap, food is always tasty, and the staff are really friendly. Mick who drives the courtesy bus is a great guy -... More

Amazing meals. Everything was beautifully presented and tasted sensational. A little expensive, but you definitely got what you paid for. Staff were friendly and helpful. Can recommend you visit. Well worth it. Couldn't beat the awesome view of the beach either.

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
