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.

Staff not knowledgeable about wine they serve. Food was quite ordinary. I think the flathead was previously frozen and no flavor. Chips ok. Salad fair but small. Poor vegetarian options. Smoke from patrons on outside balcony wafted through the open windows.

Had such a wonderful lunch at this venue. Sat at a table with an amazing view. Super friendly staff & made to feel very welcome. Great service. Had the same meal in March at an expensive restaurant nearby. Nowhere near as good as the Surf...Club. Would highly recommend this club & will definitely go back. Big shout out to Jesse & Callum who look after the Door, Bar & deliver meals & to Trevor in the kitchen. Thank you 🙏More

Attended here to provide local support. Had a few drinks and that was all good. Then ordered dinner here instead of walking around the point and into Coolangatta. Ordered 2 grilled barramundi meals @$28.00. Expected to see a whole grilled fillet sitting atop of the...plate. Nup. Looked as though the fillets had been cut in half and we had the tail ends. I placed a drink coaster over my piece of fish and the fish disappeared. The 3rd plate on the table was a steak and it appeared to have been cut in half or perhaps a sandwich steak served up. Should we have said something? Maybe. However when both plates were the same then it’s very obvious of the standard. So, I would look elsewhere if considering this restaurant. I hope they appreciated our donation as the meals did not justify the $28 charged.More

Hard to work out how to get in to start with. Go up back stairs open the gate then the door is locked you need to go around the front stairs. Then staff rudely asked us to check in which I did with a toddler...who was now running around because I couldn’t get the pram up the stairs. Staff member extremely rude about checking in, asked to see vaccination certificates (triple faxed) then he walked off. Had to ask someone else do we just sit anywhere. Sat down and the table was greasy. Decided to get takeaway. The food was as bad as the service. A seafood basket is usually good at a surf club, not here. Tasted like frozen fish, batter awful salad limp. Tried to tell a staff member about the bad vibe and he basically shrugged it off. Won’t be going back. Only bad surf club I’ve been to. Don’t waste your money.More

I came with my friend who is in a wheelchair and our carers and to our disappointment there was no wheelchair access to get into the restaurant, not even a ramp. People with disabilities deserve and have a right to go out as well.

I was really impressed with the club. I have lived in the area for years and haven't eaten here for a long time due to previous ordinary meals but the food and service were great. There covid plan was on the ball, the service was...friendly but professional, the food was the usual club food but really well cooked , fresh and served without a huge wait time. The location is one of the best. Thumbs up from me for sure.More

All surf clubs and many pubs on the Gold Coast serve the same basic menu, 2 stakes, 2 fish, 2 burgers, 2 chicken all served with chips and salad, all to a varying standard. This club Kirra Surf Club dose their version to a higher...standard than many and at a lower price to others. Many club "Welcome Visitors" then to warm their welcome charge you $2 to $5 extra per meal as they see discrimination against non cluby types as their way of showing just how WELCOME you really are! This club Kirra Surf has one price level for all NO DISCRIMINATION. The interior of the club could be described as either old or quant, The major selling point for restaurants and bistros in surf clubs is the beach views. It is astounding how some clubs can get it so wrong and this includes Kirra Surf Club, putting a 30cm barrier at eye level between the upper window and the lower window so as to block out the beach view to seated dinners is about as dumb as you can get. So in summary quant interior, good basic menu, good pricing, good food quality, but why block the view. Fix it!More

Met up with 20 friends for a Saturday night out and dinner. The 2nd outing since Covid 19 restrictions were eased. Bar service was available, meals were ordered from the bar rather than the kitchen. Completely different to a recent visit to a neighboring SLSC....The meals were typical club grub.More
