“Great location and great food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 February 2014

What a great location looking over the water. We moored up our boat at the public mooring and strolled across to the club for a beautiful lunch.

Very reasonably priced, friendly staff, excellent view and a lovely meal.

Definitely worth the trip or if you're on eh boat there is a public mooring close by that allows you to stay for up to 3 hours. We will definitely go again.

“Ok nothing special”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 January 2014

Its a busy place with pleasant service and too many pokies, so you'd think for the number of pokies the food would be cheaper!

“Great food & very friendly staff.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 January 2014

We were here for dinner with our kids on a very busy Friday night. There was lots going on with a band & raffles. We were very glad that we booked! Even though it was busy, we found the atmosphere to be excellent. The staff were super friendly & hard working, very efficient. The meals were delicious & arrived in a reasonable time. Great fun night. Brilliant staff!

“Waterfront Dining”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 January 2014

Caloundra Powerboat Club (which started life as a real power boat club in the late 1960's as the Golden Beach Power Boat Club, and to be a member you had to own a power boat) is excellent value, and a delightful venue right beside the Pumicestone Passage, with houseboats and various other craft moored in front of you.

The open kitchen is I think always a plus, and seeing 4 or 5 chefs at work in a clean environment gives the diner a sense of confidence at least about the cleanliness.

The food is standard Australian fare, with occasional specials like crumbed brains, and apart from having everything except soup buried in chips, most of it is good; perhaps a touch on the dear side for a pretty casual restaurant. Wines from the bar however are very well priced, and the beer is really cold.

Recent improvement was the bituminising of the large car park between the club and the boat launching ramp - big improvement.

Well worth a visit.
