Nice little club however the a/c didn't work very well. The food was lovely and value for money. Relaxed atmosphere.

The Surf Club is great for pub style food. The staff are really friendly, you can dine outside and watch the surf, while having a nice cold drink. We enjoyed some of the meals here more than at the expensive restaurants along the strip.

Overlooking Palm Cove Beach earns it 10 points, food wa a bit of a let down though. They tried to fancy it up but it's basically pub food, mainly deep fried stuff. Maybe we just didn't order the best on the menu. Didn't really enjoy it.

Didn't really like this place. Probably good for families but I don't like TVs and poker machines where I want to relax and enjoy a meal. Great position overlooking beach and staff quite friendly. Not really my type of place.

This was our little local for 4 days. The staff were fantastic and welcoming. They made us feel at home. The squid salad was amazing and the chips were the best in a long time. Thank you for your hospitality

Went here for dinner. Little on offer for vegans. Tuesday night is Parma night - my husband just wanted a normal parma - not one of the fancy selections promoted and they charged him the normal rate which was $6 extra ??? We had chips which were excellent and steamed vegies which were also good. Spacious club with friendly staff.
