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.

First time visitor and will never return. Staff very unhelpful, even management shrugged off my questions/concerns about my meal. Very Poor form. Left my number with reception and received no reply

Although the food came out quickly, it was the most bland chicken parma I have ever eaten. Others in our group found that their chicken pieces (both for a parma and a chicken burger) were all overcooked crumb without any chicken and served almost cold....Also couldn't remove avocado from the parmas - we figure the food must be pre fried and frozen and then served from a microwave.More

Terrible food. Cheap…. But nasty. My parmi was virtually chickenless and so over cooked I couldn’t cut it with a steak knife. We ordered food and before we got back to our table, our kids meals were already on our table. Awful food.

Make sure you book ahead as seating is limited, our table was window seating overlooking the Lake, you have to order your meal at the desk which was really quick, our food came very quickly and was excellent, large portions and presented very well, the...meals were very tasty and excellently prepared, would recommend dinner at this placeMore

They have two sittings for dinner- 545pm and 715pm. 545pm sitting was close to capacity for a Thursday night. Service is okay for a club with awesome waitresses being the older women as opposed to the flustered and inexperienced young staff members (sometimes it felt...that we as customers were an annoyance to them). The food is plentiful but I think they are trying to do too much. There is the roast of the day, seafood, steak (including the same dish as a competitor down the road) , Italian, Thai and Chinese cuisines available. Doing a few things really well might be a better approach instead of a vast and expansive menu that crosses continental taste buds that results in confusion as to what type of restaurant they want to be. One suggestion for improvement would be to allow the kids roast of the day to swap out the veggies for chips. There was a sign on the counter saying that changes were not allowed due to the large number of dishes on the menu. If you want more family diners, the menu should at least be flexible for kids. Otherwise, okay for a club meal.More

Not a great experience. Turned up on a Sunday, it was packed, some sort of members draw thing. Actually felt a bit unwelcome. We tried to make a booking for dinner only to be told it was too late. We ended up leaving after one...drink.More

Great food in a great location, staff very helpful. If in doubt about where to dine don’t hesitate to come here. I didn’t photograph it, but the Pork with Scallops on the June menu was yummo! We did visit twice whilst in Merimbula, so that...is saying something.More

I was in town for a work trip, and was turned away at the door at 5:30 on a Wednesday night, with the reasoning being “it’s school holidays we could have large groups coming in, we won’t sit just one person” It was 5:30 and...there were only a couple Of pensioners dinning. So solo travellers don’t waste your time.More

Dinner has two sittings at 1745 and 1930 and it gets very busy. Ordered a marinara linguine and a fishermans catch. The marinara was ok, linguine cooked well, but somewhat short on the seafood, with only a couple of microscopic pieces of fish and a...couple of prawns. The fishermans catch was disappointing with two small fillets of something, two prawns, and two potato cakes. We are next to the sea and yet the seafood being served up is below average.More

Yes there is a dress code, my husband was asked to remove his hat, I believe thongs might be an issue, but it’s worth asking the man at the door as the atmosphere is lovely and the food is fantastic.
