“Disgusting”
Reviewed 20 October 2013

Hair in our daughters food, shell still on prawns, meat over cooked - could not cut into it. The risotto was swimming in oil. We ordered prawns with steak, they charged us $7.50 for 3 small prawns. The cook refused to come out to discuss the state of the food, he hid out back and left the waitress and waiters to speak to us. Disgusting, really not safe to eat here until the cook is either retrained or fired. Avoid!

“Average food and not cheap”
Reviewed 9 October 2013 via mobile

It probably is what you would expect at a Surf Club, but too expensive for what it was. It's very noisy, there are much better alternatives!

“Good pub grub”
Reviewed 6 October 2013

Modern, bustling, family-friendly bistro style food. Good range of beers on tap, good kids menu. Specials on many nights of the week - we happened to be there on the parma special night: great value.

“A must if travelling with family”
Reviewed 2 October 2013

Even though this surf club is situated towards the end of Palm Cove Beach it is a must if travelling with a family. Great value, great food, friendly staff.
