Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Reviewed 24 July 2020

Last night we had our first takeaway meal from the new St Georges Dining Menu. We decided to have the Thursday night Parma Special which included 2 parmas (of your choice) from the extensive Parma menu, salad, chips and a Sqeeler (1 litre of tap...beer) for $40. It was great value for money and a large serve (which we couldn't finish). The meal was perfectly cooked, hot on arrival, the chips were crispy ( always a challenge) and the salad was delicious. Definitely excited to have takeaway again choosing from their extensive menu at very reasonable prices.More

Lovely place. Lots of seating and a warm cosy fire in one area. TV screens in all areas. We had dinner Senior meals are priced $13 for 1 meal $16 for 2 course and $19 for 3 course. We chose the 3 course. The entree...I had was the Calamari and salad perfect cooked calamari and crisp fresh salad. Main was the fish and chips with salad. It was the perfect size just a nice small piece of Fisn crisp salad yum chips. Dessert I chose was Pavlova with strawberries and whipped cream. Yum but a bit small. Dining room is a tad old but there is a warm fire lots of seating available and friendly staff. It also has an outside area in the front and to the back is a small smokers area with overhead heaters to keep you warm. Toilets were very clean and tidy. Will be going again.More

The original Intent was to meet a mate, catch up on gossip and go home, however a group near us were tucking into big bowls of seafood pasta, and it smelled really good. So we had some. The dining room was full so we ate...in the lounge, which was probably better. The seafood Linguini was really good, although I should have worn a bib, I enjoy my food but can make a mess. We had a couple of glasses of the house shiraz, which is on tap. And it is quite drinkable. I have been a member here for years and seen the quality of the kitchen improve markedly, they have recently moved areas around and got a lot of new furniture, so its a really friendly and comfortable atmosphere. A good meal and pleasant surroundingsMore

Great place for a well priced meal. We are seniors and got a meal for $13 each. It’s not the most outstanding meal, but good. The roast of the day was lamb and it was good.

We are members and have been for some time and had some lovely meals here but we went last night, a Saturday, and had the worst meal I've ever had anywhere. It was a special of spaghetti meatballs, not something I'd normally order but nonetheless......The pasta was cold, completely tasteless and dry with no sauce at all, clumped sadly in the middle of the plate. This was flanked by meatballs that were so tasteless they resembled wood chips. It was just revolting all round. I advised the waiter who was quick to offer something else after consulting the chef but it was really enough to frighten you off going again. Such a shame as we've had much better here but this was inedible and scary bad.More

My wife's Parma Chips & salad could have been hotter. The gravy that was ordered and then asked for never arrived ! The bread roll basket was empty and we had to ask for them, luck we got some because our meals took a long...time to arrive. My Paella was on the small side and was overcooked and dry, about 25 % of the rice was burnt onto the steel pan. The prawns were of a good size but again overcooked. They do have Carlton Draft Black on tap, this is a good thing ! I don't know if I would rush back there ? My wife mentioned on the way home that she went to the toilet and on they way she passed an area that had 3 freezers in it and she observed a large amount of mold around the seals, she commented if she had seen that first she would not have eaten there ! A bit disappointing as I am a member of the RSL and try to support them wherever I go. A good meal deal on a Tuesday night but I had to ask about it.More

Was planning a significant birthday event when I was incidentally told about the upstairs function room at Caulfield RSL. When I enquired I was met with warmth and encouraging ideas as to decoration and fitout options. The night went off perfectly from catered food to...a private bar and all at amazing value for money. Our guests were very impressed with the venue and asked me how they could book for an event. As an avid supporter I will be recommending Caulfield RSL Function Room and will hold future events there myself. Great venue, great staff, warmth and hospitality.More

I have been here with a few friends. It is a nice RSL. recently we had the tasting plate which gives you a great sense of the range and different styles. Not just meat and three veg. They also have "specials" nights. Burger nights, steak...nights and espresso martini nights and s few more. The most popular night for members is a Thursday night. They have a raffle which is very popular. Membership definitely has its benefits. Discounted food and beverage. There are seperate areas. The dining room, the bar, the outdoor area, the pokie area and the tab area. A place for everyone. It's an easy, no fuss, families and friends welcome.More

We have dined there prior to a gig/show many times. Usually the food and service is good and the prices are reasonable. Last night the Parmas were tasteless as were the fries. They have also removed garlic bread from the menu. 😕. We ordered 6...apple crumble pies for dessert. After waiting nearly an hour, and after further follow up with the staff, the very small desserts finally arrived. Three of them were missing the top being the pastry lid, leaving just a small bowl of apple with a small scoop of ice cream for $10! (The dessert price has increased from $5.50 to $10 over the last year). I queried with the staff member why three of the desserts were incomplete. He replied 'oh, the kitchen ran out of pastry' and just walked away.. We then had to take the 3 incomplete desserts through the crowd back to the kitchen to express our disappointment. We were promptly given a refund but no apology. Bring back the old menu and realistic dessert prices!More

We have been going to the Caulfield RSL frequently for the last two years and we have seen 3 changes in the Catering Staff. We used to eat at the RSL most Thursdays. On New Years Eve we booked to see the band and decided...to have dinner there with friends. I ordered the Thai beef salad plus one of the desserts. It took an hour for my meal to come. When it came I could only see the salad and no beef. The beef was not sliced it was one piece of 90% fat and gristle. My group looked at the beef and we all felt sick. I took it to the Kitchen Manager and said have a look at this. She through the fat and gristle into the bin and said I will have a talk to the Kitchen Staff. She never came back to me. I then discussed the incident with the Manager of the RSL and still nothing was done. Hungry as I could not eat the beef in the Beef salad, my dessert was not coming and they were closing up the kitchen. I went to the kitchen and asked for my dessert. One of the chefs said I will bring it out to you in two minutes. I thought it was strange as he did not know my table number. 10 minutes later no dessert and the kitchen now had nearly completely closed up. I went to the kitchen and knocked as they had closed the shutter and yelled out for service as they did not respond for 5 minutes. They eventually gave me my dessert and the lady next to the kitchen another customer said to her friend there is your dessert. Obviously they had not served her either. Our friends and my husband and I will not be returning for any meals until new caterers take over. I emailed about the incident Caulfield RSL. Narelle who responded explained that is how their steak comes and did not address the fact the kitchen had no intention of serving my dessert unless chased. We also attended another gig at the venue in November when we came for dinner. We were told there was a function upstairs and they would not be taking meal orders until 8.00 pm. We waited until 8.00 pm to order and when returning to the bar to order we were told they were not taking any meal orders. The band started at 8.45 pm and this made it very late to grab a meal from another venue.More
