Fantastic portion size. Spot on. Flavors on top of traditional schnitzel that we’ve never heard of but worked so well! Lovely friendly staff and very accommodating.

Front of house guy was friendly, great setting. Food was standard 'pub' fare. Drinks were slightly on the expensive side for a club. Felt a bit left out by serving staff as locals were warmly welcomed. In a town that relies heavily on tourists, treat...us the same please!!More

So i went in here for a coffee and was told they open at 10am. Which was in 10 min. As my watch was a little fast i returned thinking it was 10am and still had to wait 3 minutes. This time I actually waited...till someone else walked in to be sure but was then told i couldn't be served unless i removed my hat. I am in the same industry and we go above and beyond to look after our guests and if they turn up a little earlier we welcome them with open arms. After all business is business and you can't be to fussy now days but it's quite obvious the Cairns RSL can afford not to care. Next time maybe lock the door and the service window till your ready to serve and don't do it after you tell us your not open. Anyway i contacted my friends i was meeting there to meet somewhere more accommodating. Your loss! Train your staff to have a little more empathy when it comes to first in first serve. It was just a coffee!!!More

Great food, great service in the FNQ style. The club is the main reason I will move up there soon. I love the carefree service that you people have.

Great place- atmosphere, staff, meals & value for money. We visited twice for our 1 week stay. A whole GF menu was available (!!) so plenty of options for my Coeliac daughter. Then I was SuPeR happy with the $15 soup & roast deal @...Wednesday lunchtime. Oh, did I mention kids deal/activity... 😁More

We ate early on a Sunday evening. We hadn’t booked but were seated outside which was very pleasant: sea breezes and not too noisy, and a great spot for people watching. There were lots of people in the dining area so we expected to be...waiting some time for our meals but they arrived fairly quickly. The fish was moist and the chips were good.More

The meals are huge enough for two people, on Thursday night have a special crumbed steak with chips slaw and salad, It was great and a good feed. Roast is great value and drinks are well priced. Definitely go there.
