I have just been to the club to play the pokies and have a drink after a long hard days work. I sat down at a machine and was just about to order a drink when a member of staff (apparently a manager) approached me...and asked to see my membership card. He then informed me that I had been barred (I think because I won money playing last time I was there 3 weeks prior), And that I had received a letter informing me of such and that he would “call the cops” if I came again. I said “are you sure you’ve got the right person” and he started swearing at me using f word expletives, about 10 cm’s from my face (without wearing a mask), looking like he wanted to start a fight, what did I do wrong? I was leaving willingly even though i couldn’t believe I would be barred for no reason and assumed it must have been a mistake. Really, stay away unless you want to encounter “football hooligan” management.More

We have been to Club Rivers many times but this time my husband and I both got sick from eating "Beef Cheeks" which was a special on the night. The meal tasted okay at the time. We both got sick overnight. I don't think it...was the Beef Cheeks. I think it was the sauce they used as we both were bringing it up. Yuk !! Stick to the usual menu !!More

A group of 8 of us attended Club Rivers for a very affordable Melbourne Cup Luncheon yesterday. The cost per head was $29.90. Which included a very generous, delicious main meal, a glass of wine or beer & a dessert. We all left very content....The staff were amazing and very helpful. Thank you all.More

I just wish the new Contractors would get their act together. ??? Terrible burgers, cold in the centre of the pattie. T-bone ordered as Mid-Rare came out WELL DONE ? Vegetables were raw and undercooked. Asked for a Children's Meal for a 90 year old...patron and we were REFUSED. Just so sad that this once GREAT BISTRO is now serving terrible food. .More

The guard who was at the door tonight was really nice and polite but there was 1 other guard who was telling me not to do a video inside the club (restaurant part) wasn't nice and made me feel like i was a criminal committing...a crime. I totally understand about the VDO and had no problem with not making a VDO but at least be polite about it, no need to be harsh and showing off that you are a tough guy! He made me feel like i was begging my way in for free food. He is working in a club where there may be rules but yet he still works in hospitality and the way he treated me wasn't the right way! My intention in making a VDO was to let Thai people who are curious about Australia know how clubs work (member, non member, senior prices etc.) and to let all of my European friends/students who wish to travel to australia but worried about deadly animals see that we don't have deadly animals run wild in the city. Letting the world know that we have beautiful clubs and attractions here in Australia which would be the best place for a family as the club has it all, beautiful restaurants, wide range of drinks, sport channel going and the kids play room. shame on you! RUDE!More

We went on a Tuesday night, hadn't been for a while since they changed hands. We had a Burger Special for the night which was just okay. I still prefer the Menu from the previous owner.
