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.

The Gosford Sailing Club, is located on the waterfront in central Gosford. The club offers excellent views of the Bay Area. The club is relatively small and can get quite crowded, do make sure you book for meals. The menu is fairly good with your basic club meals, which are prepared very well and reasonably priced. The bar is a little expensive but offers a wide variety of beer and wine. The service was good and friendly.

Outlook over the water and sailing boats, makes for an enjoyable way to spend a few hours. Book if you want a table in the restaurant area as it seems to get very crowded. All Covid protocols are in place and dealt with in a very courteous manner. We enjoyed our meals which were very nicely presented and observed meals being delivered to other tables and they all looked nice. It is very “clubby” but still nice. Parking on site or parallel street parking. We did not observe a lift so if mobility is a problem ring first.

Love this place so much - gorgeous views, nice staff and the addition of the bar downstairs is great. BUT such a limited menu for veggies let alone vegans. Needs more Than just a veggie burger. Veggies and vegans care about taste and flavour as much as our meat/seafood eating friends and family. Help us not feel like second class citizens by providing choice on the menu. Choice can only add to the popularity of this lovely spot. Thank you

The menu is not as previous reviews suggest: basically hamburgers and fish and chips at around $25. The only vegetarian offering is a salad. We were a party of six: a medium steak was cooked right through, a panko chicken schnitzel was dark brown with the thin corner so overcooked it could not be cut, and a hamburger patty was hard and dry. Salt and pepper are in sachets scattered on the table. And tell me, when did it become ok to clear one plate while everyone else is still eating? Not a great night out.

Went for a Easter lunch with family. My wife wanted the Salmon dish but NOT with the pea puree and fennel as she is allergic to both. Despite the fact that they have chips and veg on other dishes they refused to change the offending items. She ate the salmon and a small amount of the Pea puree etc but was very ill that night from its effects. I had a sirloin stake which had a great deal of Grisel in it and was very poor. We have taken visitors from Sydney etc to dine there for the view, but NEVER again. The price is top end then they added 15% s.c. for the Sunday Easter.

Our experience was lovely after so many years of not visiting the sailing club. The upgrades were tastefully done. You do need to make bookings. Had a drink first before we sat at our table and enjoyed the atmosphere of the scenery and the people inside. The food choices we made were all great. We shared our food. The spaghetti Marina was devine. Pasta al dente and loads of seafood. Our steak was done as requested and very tasty. We did order too much food but even the garlic bread was too tempting not to eat. Great night out. Thank you.

Food appeared to be shop bought and reheated on the premises, coleslaw salad was dry and brown, obviously cut hours or days before use. Service was terrible, they brought out our mains when we were still eating our starters. Then left our starters dirty dishes on the table. The 'sauces' were basically Gravox with one mushroom in for the mushroom sauce and a couple of pepper corns in the Green peppercorn sauce. We had to wait for the waitress to get off the phone telling someone 'they were absolutely dead here', and the waiter to stop wiping down a clean table to be served. They didn't have much seafood left. Terrible experience. No wonder it was empty.

Good not bad, but not that special. Price ok because the plate was full of food ne and my husband didn’t finish the whole plate. The two waiters that served me were very very rude, two young people, he did registered us when we entered to the premises too, and he was rude there too, and they have been rude with everyone they served. I wish they would be faired, they don’t deserve to work with people, cause they don’t know what customer service is. But I have noticed other 2 waiters very very nice at the table in front of me I wish them could have served me.

We are regulars here. We enjoy the ambience and always find the food to be of a high standard, be it a burger, a steak or seafood. You order your food and drinks at the bar, which makes it a breeze for groups as there’s no sorting out bills at the end of the meal.

Disappointing for such a beautiful waterfront location. The food was below average with little selection. I had a slice of prepackaged Barramundi, like the ones you buy in the supermarket - definitely not fresh Barramundi - with over cooked broccolini and baked potatoes. Servings are small. Chicken parmigiana also very poor. The outdated carpet is hideous. This could be such a great venue with a decent chef and an update. We went to the Sailing Club years ago for a work Xmas event and it was very average then. It hasn’t changed at all, just more of the same, dated and unimaginative. After eating in areas around Byron, the Central Coast needs to lift its game. Fresh, well cooked food would be a good start.

Used to here quite a lot but there must be a new chef as the last 2 times have been just horrible. Bland food served on a limp salad is not my idea of a good time. The club is great so if it’s a drink a beautiful view you are after then all good but for pities sake, don’t eat there.

I made an online booking for lunch for the following day. I was made to give credit card details to secure the booking. An hour later I was called and advised I’d have to work the next day. I immediately went to the site to cancel the booking and was told I’d be charged twenty dollars. I tried ringing the contact number but it was disconnected. There was nothing I could do but cancel the booking as I wanted them to know as soon as possible. I then emailed them to tell them I wasn’t happy about this but have never even received any kind of reply. I can totally understand charging no-shows this fee but, unfortunately stuff happens that is out of people’s control. I’m sure at certain times this venue has had to call staff in at short notice, so should understand that this kind of thing happens. Very unprofessional.

Hadn’t been for many years so the lovely fresh decor was new for me. As always perfect setting overlooking the water. Very fish oriented menu which suited most of us but 1 non seafood eater was disappointed that only 1 pasta dish they could eat was on the kids menu and lacked flavour. But for the rest of us the meal was excellent and we enjoyed a variety of seafood dishes. The best Balmain bugs I have ever eaten!

Great location, excellent for a drink. Calamari delicious but skip the rest. Nice coffee but served with a stale pastry not so great. Could be lovely with a refurb, clean toilets and friendly staff.
