It was a bit noisy, but we enjoyed the meal. The Black Angus was very good value ($26 each), but would have been better if it was thicker, not longer! Tasted good though, and a generous size with good side salad and chips. We also bought a bottle of wine for $25 (took the remains back to our motel). Staff were friendly, service was good. It would have been nice to sit outside given the setting, but no tables out there, maybe this was due to impending cyclone; don't know! The Bowls Club also offers a free courtesy bus. We walked 15-20 mins each way, which we like to do, but nice to know the bus service is available if needed. We would return!

Very varied menu, all made quickly and imaginatively presented. The chef kept smiling at everyone, and the other staff were all cheerful and willing. All our choices were excellent.

Four hungry adults ordered coconut prawns, steak and barramundi. Most of the main meals are massive, you could easily share a main meal if you werent very hungry. Presentation was very nice. Nice to have fresh beetroot in seasonal side salad. Compliments to the kitchen staff. Drinks were decently priced.
