First time back in Katherine in quite a few years and was looking forward to a nice dinner at what used to be the RSL, now Katherine Club. The reception staff was lovely. The bartender was lovely. But the food? What a disappointment! My husband’s...medium rare steak came out blue. Very rare. He sent it back and when it came back it was better, but bland. The chips were good, the salad was not too bad. My friend’s lemongrass coconut barramundi was disgusting. The fish was tough and rubbery, the sauce was very oily, the rice was not fresh, and the roti was dark grey and unappetising. She just couldn’t eat it. I ordered the chicken tikka masala. I thought it odd to be asked whether I wanted chips or mash, salad or veg with it, and I said but it comes with rice, right? Staff responds that I can have it with rice if thats what I want. So out comes a plate with 2 chicken breasts lightly covered in sauce, and a cone of hard dry rice. For $27!! I ate most of it as I wasn’t going to risk trying to change it for something else, but there’s no way it was worth the money. Aside from that, there were no coasters, so we used Keno forms. We had to request cutlery after our meals arrived as we hadn’t received any, and it took a while to arrive, and she didn’t bring enough. We also had to ask for napkins as we hadn’t been supplied with any. I asked for extra rice as the amount I received was inadequate. The staff complied but didn’t look impressed about it, and when taking the plates after the meal wouldn’t even make eye contact, much less smile. We will never bother returning here, and would strongly recommend against trying to get dinner here.More

Horrible food and overpriced for a family club. Wings where $15 for really small portion, burnt, dry, luke warm, tasteless and came with a cheap bbq sauce. Dips plate was $12 for horrible jar dips that just tasted of sugar. Schnitzel and chips with dip...was $26.50 for a overcooked piece of what I assume is the lowest grade chicken you can get, chips where barely cooked, soggy, and unseasoned. Pepper dip tasted like it was about to turn sour. I never write reviews on anything but this was so bad I had to say something. I was a chef for ten years and currently a manager in the same sort of club (not in Katherine) so I do regard myself as someone who knows what I'm talking about and would hope if a place I was a manager of was this bad someone would tell me. Still can't believe how bad the food actually was.More

he food is so bad I feel morally obligated to warn people to STAY AWAY. Over priced $15 for less than 3 wings no flavour, no seasoning. Dips were sugary. Even the gravy was of. I felt sick after my meal. The chef should be...ashamed of the filth he served as food. DisgustingMore

Took the fam out for lunch today - clean venue with busy kitchen. Spent $100 - We ordered buffalo wings - weren't hot and came with BBQ sauce... the chips were soggy, the steak sandwich with the lot was good but expensive at $18. The...caesar salad was ok, except they forgot the egg, didn't use cos lettuce and we said no to anchovies, so the dressing came on the side, which meant we had to toss the salad ourselves... the southern chicken salad was dreadful! They smothered the deep fried chicken in a green sauce which made no sense - ranch, yes, chipotle, perhaps, but herb and wasabi??!!! Then, the creamy dressing on the salad was tasteless. Everything deep fried had the same colour, I seriously suggest they change their oil. Tip: go with the classics - snitzel, burger and don't order anything fancy.More

I used to having dinner here on a weekly basis. The food was excellent and the salad bar was amazing, but they have reopened the standards have dropped significantly. There seems to be new kitchen staff and they all look so miserable like they don't...want to be there. Whenever I or my friends enquire about what's in a dish the kitchen staff are always so rude. I can't believe how bad the food is. Since reopening we've had dinner several times and every time the meat is raw in the middle. We've ordered chicken, lamb and pork chops and the meat is not rare in the middle it's actually raw and cold. We've had to send our meat dishes back to be recooked every time. The flavours are also terrible. The tandoori lamb is just a big fillet of lamb covered in some sort of tasteless sauce that's not tandoor. The southern style crispy chicken salad is literally 3 small chicken schnitzels encrusted in salt (you need to drink water with it) on a garden salad with mayonnaise. The side salad is more exciting than this salad. This salad is an absolute rort for $20. I seriously hope management changes the kitchen soon.More

After office, we decided to have our dinner at Katherine Club. To my amusement, the only thing that ruins both the food and a very nice facility was the attitude of the staff at reception. This was one of the worst experiences we had in...any resto. I dont mind house rules but what I do mind is when you get to be asked for an ID as if you killed someone! "ID?!" put it in the checker then just handed back without even saying anything or wearing a smile. Talked to us like we were not paying customers. And told us "You are not allowed to eat after 3 times" in a very condescending tone. If not for that poor customer service and worst experience, I would definitely be going back. Not a kind of place I am confident to recommend to friends and family.More

Visited Christmas eve for dinner. Food was great and very large servings Priced well once you saw the size of the plates, prior to this is was thinking a bit expensive. Our friends were happy when they were told they could take the leftovers from...their kids plates home. Only shame was that the courtesy bus did not opperate that night and jumping pillow was deflated so k8ds could not use it. Great staff in restaurant and bar, all very very friendly.More

Had dinner at the Club and it was your typical pub meal, very tasty and filling. The atmosphere in the bar area was good although a little quiet while we were there.
