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.

I hosted my ‘special’ birthday party on the Deck at BMD Northcliffe Surf Club at the weekend. Wow! What a wonderful day it was! Leah, the event coordinator, made things so easy for me. She decorated the space beautifully, and organised the finer details of...food and drinks exactly as I had requested. Melanie very capably supervised everything during the party, and the wait and bar staff were friendly, helpful and professional. It really was a superb venue. And the million dollar views were to die for!More

The vegan burger was revolting and I had never had such bad pizza. They really don’t care when you tell them how it could be improved. Pity because I’m a local.

Fantastic venue, Great service and the quality of the fare was top shelf. The view is ideal and the only thing that is a challenge is “parking”.

Best spot on the Goldie for Breakfast !! Food is fantastic, friendly staff and a view to die for. Certainly for a full Breakfast experience none better. The outside deck is also great for just a coffee or beverage with a bar that wraps around...the entire north/east corner offering spectacular views out to the ocean and right up the beach. Highly recommend this spot.... best to book as it does get busy !!More

Great place for a birthday lunch. Service for most was excellent except the oysters which came after everyone else had nearly finished their meal. Staff however were apologetic. Must book however as many people were turned away. We had booked so no issue.

It’s appropriate this surf renamed themselves after a construction company sponsor - their offering is typical of what a Gold Coast construction company would provide in a canteen. Bland, overpriced food served by apathetic unprofessional staff. I challenge anyone to find a redeeming feature of...this place other than the view. A setup designed to fleece boomer landlords of their weekly takings via gambling, my 12 yr old daughter can prepare tastier dishes. She certainly wasn’t impressed with the small bowl of lukewarm pasta with cold cheese sprinkled on top or her miniature drink - at $16+ for a kids meal surely they can get a full sized post mix soft drink? The cauliflower bites were cold inside. Literally cold. The Brisket sandwich was burned and not worth anywhere near the price paid, especially considering it was missing ingredients from the menu description. It was an embarrassment to anyone in the establishment that calls themselves a chef. Don’t forget you’ll have to line up either. Line up for a table, lineup for a drink, lineup to place a food order taken by staff that have no idea what they’re selling. Paying over the odds for poorly prepared food doesn’t even get you table service. Watch out for the entitled older ladies that will jump the queue at any opportunity too. Surf clubs used to be the lifeblood of Aussie beach culture. But this place is best avoided, maybe try somewhere that actually cares about patrons and isn’t just exploiting them. You can get better food anywhere else.More

Pretty average gluten free bun with the burger. Not toasted, just cold and stale. Buyer beware, especially coeliacs, everything marked gluten free is cooked in the SAME oil as the gluten containing items. Very deceptive. And risky. I don’t know how they can say anything...is gluten free with their kitchen protocols. Speaking to the locals who dine here, they say it’s hit and miss wrt quality too. Very disappointing.More
