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.

We came here on our first night on the island and we started with a drink at sunset followed by some exceptional entrees of fish cakes and a yellow fin tuna ceviche which were both outstanding. Our mains consisted of a king fish in black...bean sauce stir fry which was very tasty and a fish burger which although looked a little plain was very tasty too. The beers were cold, the wine lovely and the service was very friendly and lovely people. Would eat here again.More

A very popular venue with club type food at reasonable prices and of course fully licensed. A good variety of food and complemented with smorgasbord sides. Best not to go if very windy as the full-size glass door and walls open up looking over the...golf course which is a beautiful course but can get cold.More

We ate at the Sunset Bar and Grill on their fish night. Both enjoyed our meal, and thought that the people taking orders and serving did an excellent but friendly job. Happy to recommend to others!

Make sure to book before you go. You just ring and leave your name, where you are staying and number of people, then consider it confirmed - I love this place. Get there early to see the sunset over the water. We found many people...arrived too late to see the beautiful sunsets. My suggestion arrive for happy hour and just take in the view and fresh air and maybe a beverage or two.More

This place is very popular and is a must to book (pre-visit if you can OR asap with your host). They have set special menu- eg local fish night -really encourage you to try it. Scenery is stunning and overlooking the golf course.

Missed the sunset this time but the restraunt had a great variety on the board to choose from and the meals were good. Good selection of beers and friendly staff. Bus takes you to your door with the driver keeping the conversation going amongst the...passengers.More

We visited twice. Once for my 70th birthday, when they kindly fitted us in, and secondly when the weekly "chicken run" was on. Both times they were very busy. The friendly staff managed very well and the kitchen turned out good solid food at a...reasonable price. Throw in the magnificent sunset views and we were happy.More

We enjoyed two dinners at the Golf Club on a recent stay to Lord Howe Island. Once just wasn't enough (although the clouds didn't help the sunset on our second dinner). All of our meals were superb, and the sunset view is absolutely spectacular! The...staff are very friendly, the service was prompt, and we couldn't fault either of our experiences. The staff will drive you back to your accomodation after dinner. One of the young female drivers is a bit of a hoon, so maybe wear your seatbelt! We can't wait to return next time!More

Our package deal included a couple of dinners at the Golf Club. The staff were very courteous and helpful. Best Prawn Linguine I've had for some time.

This is supposed to be good spot for sunset, so i booked in advance. Unfortunately the sunset did not happen as clouds came over. Had a nice meal, fish burgers and schnitzel. Then dessert, mud cake. Family 3. Meal was nice. Prices similar to other...venues on island. They can also give you lift back to your accommodation as it is up the other end of island near Mount Gower My only negative with Sunset bar and grill is booking a reservation Bookings are recommended, however making a booking is quite challenging as i made our booking before we left for our trip. They do Not answer the phone. You have to leave a message on answering machine and hope for the best as they do not ring you back. (You cannot book online). So i had no idea my booking was confirmed until the staff at our accommodation rang and checked for me. I think this is something they need to fix as other places on the island you can email. Can also play golf here.More

Four of us loved our night. Had a table on the window. Got to the club at 530 to enjoy the sunset. Highly recommend that you get there early. Line up to order food which was fine. We all enjoyed our meals.

Could have easily been an - excellent+ rating ; The location and sunset is amazing, the staff and service (order at bar area ) friendly and helpful no issues , the food enjoyable, quick service, pricing similar for the island. - but it was a...booze-up night, and chook raffle in the middle, for the locals and friends; so noisy that we could not talk ; so the romantic dinner for two was a complete failure with people wandering through the dining area. Added to that the bus back to your accommodation leaves much later in the night and when there are 10 passengers ready to go.......so you wait and wait and wait. Ok its their club for them to enjoy I understand that's what they want - but wish I'd known how crowded and noisy it was before we booked. If your going with a bunch of noisy drinking friends you'll love it.More

We arrived early to sit over the gorgeous golf course and watch the sunset as we sipped on house cocktails, which were lovely. The atmosphere was lively, with many locals congregating to do the same. The wine list was good and the food was exceptional!...Would recommend any menu choice as it was all orchestrated beautifully. Could not fault a thing!More
