Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

I came here for lunch today and ordered roast of the day. It consisted of ham, pork and turkey. All of it was salty and tasted like processed meat! To me these meats seemed like a substandard hang over from Christmas! The vegetables were of a better standard so that was something good. Staff were friendly so that was another positive. I have been here quite a number of times over the years so I hope to see a difference the next time I return.

I went here to have lunch today and I decide on a Veal schnitzel which cost $30 on the specials board for the day, It was over cooked and tough and the gravy with the meal was very salty. The only good thing was the chips, I would have expected a little salad with the meal at that price. I have going to the club for a number of years and can honestly say that it was the worst meal I have had at the Wantirna club.

Dining at this place is quite okay. went into the pokies , this blonde hair lady with shoulder length hair, which is a stuff member, was quite rude ! l ask her a question about something, her remarks were disgusting, like what do you want ! If l went there again and seen her there I won’t what to face this person. She needs to treat people with more niceness .

Met up with a group of friends and the menu selection was excellent. Bar staff were friendly. Friday night entertainment was not too loud and very listenable.

This place serves a variety of good food but the experience is let down by the wait staff. An elderly gentlemen in our party asked the wait staff what was the curry of the day. The reply, “I don’t know but it will come up on the screen eventually”. The screen being a tv displaying a rotating description of the menu. Our elderly visually impaired gentleman was not impressed. Gotta lift your game and give staff the appropriate training.

We ate here last Monday night, 2 mains for price of 1, and both enjoyed very much our calamari, one with chips and one with salad. We always find the serving size good for two new seniors. Monday night is unusual for us to eat at the Wantirna Club, but we will return.

If you have allergies or intolerances do not go here to dine you may end up Unwell like I did! There is also no choice, and only one size of serving Other observations: The roof in the bar area appear as blackened white ceilings, the air cond. ducts are filthy, the carpet is severely stained, some cracks in walls, and the toilets need fixing and like the rest of the club proper maintenance repair and replacement of things..... Visit and make your own judgement

Tonight we dined at Wantirna Club and it was absolutely superb! The manager Osanda goes above and beyond to make sure that you are comfortable and that everything is as you would expect. What an asset Osanda is to this business. We regularly dine at fine dinning restaurant’s and tonight this would excel the best of meals that we have had anywhere. Service 10/10 food 10/10 and 10/10 for atmosphere. We are from Bendigo but when we are in Melbourne we will be back!

Always great to get the specials and here I was super glad I did. My mates had the Burger with the lot and I had the Ribs. Well under twenty dollars including a complimentary pot of beer. Other than that there was a nice and tempting menu with regular pub fares and a nice range of beers and drinks behind the bar. Atmosphere lovely, manager even checked on us as well, making us feel welcome. Good thinking 99!

my wife and I visited the Wantirna Club today. When my wife stopped to chat with friends I went ahead and placed my lunch order of Fried Flat head tails. The wife placed her order about three minutes later. My fried Flat Head Tails was absolutely beautiful. Delivered hot with beautiful crunchy chips. My wife could not resist and tried them and agreed with my comments about them. Forty five minutes and two visits back to the register her Double meat Christmas in July meal arrived along with her two friends meals. The other twenty six in our party had received, eaten and enjoyed their meals, Most had ordered after my wife and her friends had placed orders for their meals. A lovely experience for most but spoiled for a few due to their long wait. A higher rating would have been given but for this break down in service. ALL meals were excellent, hot, flavourful and no complaints except for the service isssue.

Curry not specials. While the chicken was extremely tasty the curry was not overly hot in taste but plentiful with the rest of the meal.It was the Sunday special with a pot of beer or glass wine cannot go past that. Very filling meal and will return to try other specials in the future.
