The surf club is a pleasant and friendly place for a drink or dinner. Service is friendly. Food was average - nothing to write home about. Standard pub fare.

Stopped past for late lunch on the way through from cairns to port D. Pub meals but fairly good. I enjoyed my Arancini. Service was good and quick. Sitting outside on a deck area with beach outlook. Good location.

I've never written a review on trip advisor before but the steak was so tender and perfectly cooked. Great service too.

The Palm Cove Surf Club is the place to go to experience great old fashioned friendliness in an atmosphere with “normal “ people, some of us are even LOCALS!!!! We won’t try to impress anyone with our Lamborghini key rings on the bar…… The meals...are “fair dinkum” scrumptious, at a price that won’t force you to sleep on the beach, or in your car….Have a flutter on the pokies with a cool drink…….Catch the footy on a big screen, and watch the smiles on the faces of Eugene and Terry as they “bend over backwards “ to attend to your every wish……this place ROCKS…….and remember that every $$$$$$ you spend here helps to SAVE LIVES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!More

The Surf Clib offers good selection of pub/club food in a casual, non-pretensious atmosphere at a very reasonable price. Good for a break from the fine dining offered at Palm Cove's up market locations.

Had a surprisingly nice meal here. Had the salmon, on bed of mash, and they have Guinness on tap, which I rate. Very nice meal.
