A bunch of us had dinner at the bowls club on the weekend during our visit to Cooktown. The place was pretty busy, the staff were friendly and the food was ok. That was the general consensus of the food amongst the group too.
My bruschetta was pretty plain and the salmon special I had was well over cooked.

Also, there was live music playing and there were plenty of people up dancing, if that’s your thing.

Best views and fantastic reasonably priced food. Try the daily seafood specials fresh from their backyard.

We came in from a fishing trip and decided to have a Sunday Dinner here. We had a party of six and we had a variety of meals, including steaks, ribs and chicken. All of our meals were great and the boys loved the ribs and steak. The restaurant was busy and we had great service.

The bowling club is well located and within sort walking distance of very good accommodation.
We , a group of 6 fishermen, were recommended to dine at the Club as the Chef ( Murray Pierson - spelling ? ) knew how to look after patrons - what a great tip.
Our first night was a Tuesday and it was impressive for a bowling club. After that it just got better - anything we asked for Murray and his team presented meals , particularly seafood, that we did not expect from a club environment. How fortunate the Cooktown Bowling Club is to have such a capable and amiable chef.

We were holidaying in January for a week, we were told the Cooktown Bowls Club had a new Chef and to give it a try. To our surprise the food was fantastic. We ended up eating here 3 times. Try the steaks, you won't be disappointed.
