Very nice food, great atmosphere. We had an awesome experience, while we were waiting for our dinner there was also a raffle on and after the raffle there was a band there as well for entertainment. No complaints.

My wife and I live in the area and we are members of this club. It is on the edge of the canel entrance from the Pacific Ocean to Lake Mcquarie. The food is very good and competitive pricing. Lovely location.

This club sits on the water with magnificent views. We sat in the "conservatory" for our coffee and then moved into the main dining area for our lunch. Friendly and efficient staff and good food.

I visited Swansea RSL a couple of times while in the region for work. Food was consistently good, with a good variety of dishes and specials. Drink prices are good...not expensive. Excellent views and a great atmosphere. Gaming area does not detract from the experience...More

In all honesty. I would not bother with Swansea RSL. It is very ordinary. Greasy, more than likely frozen seafood. Both my girlfriend and I said "never again".
