“Enjoyable family meal”
Reviewed 2 March 2014 via mobile

We visited the bowling club for dinner on the first night of our week long stay in Yamba, and enjoyed it so much we returned later in the week. The staff were friendly & helpful, and were happy to accommodate our special requests (gluten free child's meal). We really enjoyed the Monday night entertainment!

“Don't want to assist with dietary requirements.”
Reviewed 16 February 2014

Simply asked to have no salt on chips, but this was too hard for them to pull some chips out before salting them!! Get up with the times and peoples requirements.

“Ok if you just get the special!”
Reviewed 5 January 2014

The nightly specials look like good value but I would not bother paying for anything else!
We had steaks and they were cooked to our liking but the veggies were not very nice and the mushroom sauce had far to much garlic and not a lot of mushrooms!
If you like clubs I am sure it's a good one but there are many yummy places to eat in Yamba!

“No pleasing some people.”
Reviewed 3 January 2014 via mobile

After reading some of the negative comments I find it hard to believe they are talking about the same place I visit regularly!
Yes it does get busy during holiday season, but any good restaurant in the town does, so I would take this as a positive that its so popular! Don't be out off!
The pizzas are fresh and made right in front of you, and they are happy to include/exclude anything of your choice. I'm a sucker for the pasta dishes and can honestly say they are better than those found in the Italians in the town! The portions sizes are good (I can never finish mine) and always hot.
The family band that play on a Monday (I always try to go in this night for that reason) are fantastic. A real upbeat, feel happy family group. Anyone who doesn't enjoy this must be very miserable! It's great fun and children can get involved as they provide shakers if you want them.
Do not be put off by negative comments below!
Great food, great service, great price and great location!
