Ate here while visiting friends in Bendigo. Very busy on a Tuesday evening. Food was good. Atmosphere is also great and the restaurant area is huge.

Big Parmi's is exactly that. Big meal with chips, unfortunately I'd say the chicken comes in pre crumbed and tastes a lot like the ones you get at Woolies. In saying that the meals are good and large, service is friendly, drink prices are average....Worth coming to. Only issue is trying to get staff to understand you whilst wearing masks.More

Very impressive RSL. Reasonably priced drinks, nice decor and great facilities, this place is well worth a visit if you’re in the area. The most impressive feature is the spacious beer garden, which comes complete with heaters, cooling spray and an array of classic and...modern war machines. Tidy.More

.. Visiting Bendigo from interstate we booked in for a meal on New Years Eve .. A great decision as we had a absolutely beautiful meal. They were reasonably priced & we were served by friendly staff in a very timely manner (even though there...were many diners, being NYE) Everyone’s meal was delicious & plentiful and I have to say my Mongolian Beef stir fry was the best I have ever eaten. Would recommend the Bendigo RSL to anyone looking for a mouth watering meal ..More

Made an infrequent visit for lunch on NYE. I had the whiting fillets. Couldn't help but feel it was industrially prepared fish. A bit dry and lifeless as were the chips. Salad was ok. At least their winelist has been somewhat updated with a better...selection of reds. Perhaps something like the RSL burger would have been a better choice - at least it looked largely assembled on the premises. As a venue ro relax and have a drink, it still rates as a pretty good place to go to.More

One of the best clubs we have ever visited. It’s not huge but big in quality. We had lunch there twice while visiting Bendigo and the meals were large, fresh, delicious and very reasonably priced. The service was excellent, toilets very nice and clean, and...the lounge area comfy and quiet. Ample parking off street....a great place for a yummy meal in the aircon.More

Visited Bendigo RSL today for lunch. Enjoyed one of our favourite meals (corned beef, potato & veg.) which was very tasty & well cooked, followed by a delicious dessert (apple/rhubarb & icecream) with both courses being off large proportions and well priced meals. Staff were...polite, caring & helpful.More

We were on holidays from Melbourne and this was a highlight of our stay. Beautiful new looking building with some excellent sculptures and other reminders of our war history. Excellent play areas for kids and teens. The menu was huge and had plenty of gluten...free options (even burgers and wraps). All of our meals were delicious and the portions more than enough. My only “disappointment” was I didn’t realise they had some big tanks out the back until after I got home. I must go back just to see those! Thanks for the great experience. Easy five stars.More
