We came to visit some friends and had lunch with them. Not expecting anything show stopping to arrive on my plate, until the oysters arrived. Wow!!! They were very generous in size. We ordered Kilpatrick that had not been over cooked, they hadn’t sat under...a heat lamp to dry out and they were cooked to perfection. Our other meals were great as well.More

We are staying with family just around the corner (in Australian terms - 1.5 km) and joined as soon as we arrived. We all ate there the 3rd day and then visited the Saturday between Christmas and New Year for an early evening late afternoon...drink. Having used the Free transport option for members👍👍👍The club was busy but we found a table and had our drinks within minutes. Great choice of Local and foreign brews at very good prices.More

Cant really put a review about the food on here cause we never got the chance to try it ... I had organised and booked a table for sun lunch .. I booked the day before .. it was for a going away surprise for...a friend ... we dragged the children and a new born baby out of the car in the heat only to find out the girl that taken our booking had put us on 2 tables ... at either end of the restaurant ... needless to say the people I had I voted were not happy and we left .... the supervisor was lovely and very apologetic and embarrassed...maybe your staff need a lesson in taking bookings won't bother making another bookingMore

We pencilled in a visit to this Club during an overnight stopover in Mackay, purely to watch the AFL Grand Final and it’s name (our boys follow Collingwood Magpies). Although I received no response to a question asked a week prior via the Club’s contact...email on their website, I received a speedy response through Facebook messenger and we followed through with our visit. We were impressed by the size, service and food that was served. There was a slight hiccup initially with the TV sound at the start of the game, but was rectified fairly quickly. The gaming room is huge and the cafe is very popular too. Coffee wasn’t great, burnt, but the desserts and sportsbar burgers were yum. Recently we stayed at the Stamford Plaza in Brisbane, a 5 star hotel with private toilet & vanity cubicles in the common areas. To find the same individual restroom setup at a Sports Club in Mackay was fantastic and unexpected! Really happy with our visit there and the locals are lucky to have it.More

Rib fillet nearly uneatable, Vietnamese stir fry terrible, pokies returning approx 2% return. Only give one star because the beer is cold. Don’t think I will ever go back.More

If you're planning a visit here I would book if possible as this is a really popular venue. Staff are really friendly and meals are generous us portion and presented well. A good variety of meal types are offered including gluten free and vegan options.

We decided to try this club on a Friday night. Bar prices are reasonable with a good selection of beers on tap. The Centro casual dining was in some ways disappointing. My steak was cooked not to my preference however was tender and enjoyable. The...veges however were okay but were not hot when received. The chicken palma was quite good though. Although busy the service was below par in my opinion. In the time we sat there the waitresses, in some cases 3 of them were just standing around chatting while food was sitting underneath the heat lights and not being served to patrons. Apart from that club is clean and well laid outMore
