Nice place to come after a morning swim. It's open for breakfast from 7.30. For $15 you can get as much as you want traditional fry up, cereals, fruit salad. Drinks are included. The place overlooks the marina, but book your table in advance if you want to be at the water edge. There were two things that could be... More

I use it as my office e and the Lo action is second to none and the staff are excellent from Pete to the Chefs. I've seen dolphins come up to the beach and my kids love going there. The meals are a little pricey but it's a great place for a good meal and excellent views.

Casual club-oriented environment but setting is great, overlooking almost at water-level, the luxurious marina. The seating is rather basic as in, hard on the bum but the staff are pleasant and are some excellent. The food was scrumptious, served at the correct temperature and the wine list is very good as well. Highly recommended if the aforementioned appeals.

Sometimes the food ticks all the boxes but beware of the whole lobster mornay they put on special now and again--Why insult peoples intelligence with rubbish like this.God knows the country of origin of this cheap imported crustacean but it was dry,completely tasteless except for the mornay sauce and an embarrassment to my guests. Shame on whoever was responsible for... More

My wife and I dropped into the Gold Coast Southport Yacht Club for lunch with friends. While the bar and table service was good, this had to be positively one of the worst meals we've experienced for some time. We chose flathead fillets and they were so tough it resembled dried up old boot leather. I spoke to a chef... More

My partner raved about this place and the wonderful oysters. Unfortunately that was not our experience. Staff were friendly and the view lovely but food very much over priced for the quality. Oysters were very gritty and some were green. They seemed old. Chips were soggy. Unfortunately we wouldn't go back.

SYC_Management, Manager at Yacht Club, responded to this review

Thank you for your review Steviegoeswest. As we are supplied with this product daily, and most times run out (so that they are fresh daily) it is very unusual to receive negative comments in regards to the Oysters, however if you could please contact us via marketing.manager@southportyachtclub.com.au with further details of your dining experience, and we can look into your...
