Needed to kill a few hour after arriving in Adelaide from Sydney so we tried the drive out to the beach and lunch at the surf club. Great little local establishment with lots of beer choices and a good seafood loaded menu. Service was prompt and courteous and the food outstanding. It was a very nice lunch for our first... More

I'm sitting at a table, roughly 15 metres from the wave break, about 5 metres above the beach. I'm eating seafood cooked well, drinking excellent wine by the glass that isn't overpriced. Relaxing with family and loving everything. Okay, service is friendly not silver service. It's a surf club not a fine dining restaurant. But the location is hard to... More

Not really happy. Mate and I ate there for lunch, got an outside table which had used glasses on it. How much effort does it take to clean off a table straight after someone has just left? No water was offered, it was just help yourself to the water cooler, which was almost empty. The bill came to $55 for... More

Average to poor food. Told no corkage but when got there 10 bucks per bottle. Waste of money time and location will never return. Go their at own risk. Very dated decor. Needs a bulldozer and start again. Some staff friendly others need people training.

West Beach Surf Club provides a dog-friendly fenced deck next to their cafe which is perfect after a walk on the beach with my dogs. Good coffee and great breakfasts with a great view of the gulf.
