Service was prompt and pleasant. View is magnificent. All one could ask for of a surf club. Sports bar, resturant, pokkies.

We had heard the press about the awards and we're keen to visit with friends for dinner. Very predictable club food. Vegetarian pizza does not have to be tasteless. Nothing at all that we would return for!

A great place with a beautiful view of the beach from the balcony. Staff are very friendly and the food, that's I've ordered there, has been consistent with the surf club expectations. They offer colouring in for the kids and great kids meals. It can be a bit sticky sometimes, the tables and chairs could do an extra with a... More

I love this place - but tonight's dinner was too staggered a service even for a surf club with meals for 7 people arriving over an hour long period (after they found last two meals). Food was fine and view is great - now the service needs to match.

The service was quick and friendly and... More

Had dinner on Sat evening 25 March. The entree of salt n pepper calamari melted in your mouth. The steak arrived in perfect time and was cooked as requested (and the veg n chips were great). The wait staff were friendly and efficient even though the place was packed. Great views of Coolum Beach, would definitely recommend a meal there.

The surf club has all amentities for both families and couples. The view from the deck is amazing. The food was excellent but was a bit overpriced if you had a large family to feed. Certainly higher prices than other surf clubs I have been to but for us it was worth the money

My husband and I have been here twice for dinner. Not impressed. My steak was over cook and the salad with the meal was lacking. Busy place but I like my steak cooked properly. Average meals for a mid range price.
