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 Kurrawa Surf Club is obviously a very popular eating place in Broadbeach. We went there twice on two nights running and found it to be booked out. However on both occasions the cashier was able to find us a table without us having to wait. We found the menu to have a substantial choice of food which made it difficult in selecting a meal. However in saying that, we selected the Hot Seafood Platter as it had a wide selection of seafood quoted. When it was brought out to ur table it exceeded our expectations. The wide selection of seafood was displayed on a three tiered silver plate arrangement and was more than we had expected. My friend was unable to eat his portion of the food so I happily obliged him by eating his share. Simply delicious. We found the meals to be reasonably priced and perhaps slightly cheaper than most of the other restaurants in the area. Apart from that we found the service to be very friendly and fast. Perhaps the atmosphere was a bit noisy at times but not overbearingly so. I would definitely recommend this venue for anyone wanting a meal in the Broadbeach area.

Our Pork Belly (monthly special) and Pan Fried Salmon were both lovely meals and arrived quickly despite being a busy Friday night. Prices seemed comparable to other surf clubs that we've visited, but consider becoming a member if on holidays. Friendly staff and easy pre-booking online.

Ordered the salt and pepper squid. For $21.90 I received eight small pieces of squid, a dozen fries (think kids fries portion at Maccas) and a thoroughly uninspiring salad. Definitely over priced for what I received. Still hungry at the end of the meal. Service was ok but there are way better places to eat in Broadbeach.

We decided to try dinner here one night everyone was happy with their food except me, ordered the salt and pepper squid with no chips was really looking forward to it as friends of our highly recommended it. When all the dishs came out and mine finally arrived there were literally 6 pieces of squid little salad and chips...so dished chips to hubby everyone liked their meal but I wouldn't return again very disappointed

Unfortunately food was not good. As locals we were walking around Broadbeach and thought we would try the SLSC. The location is great but the food was not sorry. It is a slow process to order but the food came out quick. I know why because we ordered the grilled seafood and barramundi and it was clear everything was pre cooked and served on the plate and sent out. The seafood was dry and the vegetables served cold. When you pay $30-39 you would expect the meal to be freshly cooked but with so many people to feed this would not be possible.

The left us standing at the front waiting to be seated for about 10 minutes without even acknowledging us. A lot of bar staff standing around with no customers but no one even bothered to say anything or get someone to seat us. After we were seated they told us someone would be over to get our drinks order, which they did quickly. Then nothing. We waited and waited for someone to take our food order but no one came. After 25 minutes I managed to get someone’s attention, only to be told we had to go to the back of the room to order ourselves. No one had told us that, and it was hidden away with no visible signage. The guy laughed like it was funny for us to be sat there for nearly half hour not knowing what to do. When I approached the girl to order I asked how long the wait for food was and explained I had already waited a long time at the table not knowing I had to order with her. She screwed her face up at me and was dismissive and rude, I felt like I was back in high school being laughed at by the cool girl. The whole experience made me feel like crap and we ended up leaving without ordering food and having paid for drinks that we didn’t consume. It’s not difficult to communicate with your customers. It’s also not difficult to apologise and be polite and helpful in your place of employment.

One of the best surf clubs around! Completely refurbished and immaculately presented club, super busy and run like a well oiled machine! Full bar service available and we managed a table for 11 people with no reservation. Although it took about 20 minutes to place food orders, I was pleasantly surprised at how quick the kitchen turned around the food. They serve a mean chicken parmy and the whole barramundi was good but the best on ground was the seafood grill. Reasonably priced, particularly with the members discount (which is well worth getting even for 1 night).

The setting is fantastic right on the beach in the Gold Coast and the venue has seen extensive renovations over the past few years. However the food is quite basic and plain. The seafood I had felt very much like it was frozen packet stock and the other mains were adequate without being of a quality commensurate with the price paid. With so many options in the area we certainly wouldn't venture in here again.

A recently built surf club right on Broadbeach. Very friendly staff beautiful views of the Gold Coast . If you are staying a week or two it is well worth joining as a social member and get good discounts on food and beverages. A great club.

We visited last week whilst on holiday. I was able to purchase a social membership for $5 which saved me quite a bit of money on the night. It was easy to apply for online and was ready to pick up arrival at the club. We had a few drinks on the balcony then had a meal inside. 3 of us had grilled seafood and vegetables and all thoroughly enjoyed it. The others had risotto and a chicken dish and enjoyed theirs also. We also had a dessert pizza, a first for us all and absolutely delicious. All staff encountered were friendly and professional and prices of drinks and food very reasonable.

Worst meal ever. Fish and chips, fish did not look like fresh fish, more reconstituted, soggy batter. And chips look like they were 3 days old, not cheap meals by ant means, inedible, the worst fish and chips ever. Definitely a no go area for me.

Wasn't as good as reviews here and when charging $28-30 for mains prices (non club members) on average it was way overpriced. Hubby got the chicken parmigiana with salad and chips and I got seafood risotto. The parmigiana was small and flat and was served with about adozen chips. Hubby said it tasted ok but he's had far better. The risotto arrived with three mussels in half shells, three shrimps and no other seafood I could find despite boasting it also had fish and squid on the menu. It didn't have a lot of flavour and for $31 wasn't worth it. We will be going to the little place down the road next time which is much better and won't be back unfortunately because it's a great venue.

Our Kurrawa wedding (2/2/22) was thoroughly enjoyed by us and 45 guests from interstate & from across SEQ. The buffet was fabulous and good value, and the Functions Team worked seamlessly with our vendors (Coastal Events and Sweet Frostings Cake Design) to ensure everything was where it needed to be. We would highly recommend Kurrawa Surf Club as a venue for significant occasions.

We have been to Kurrawa Surf Club for lunch twice in the past week, thoroughly enjoyed each visit. I noticed a few new items on the menu which keeps it interesting plus they have a daily specials board and a specials board for members as well. The introduction of the Pizza Oven is a great idea. We will definitely be back.

The meals were much better on our return visit and found club membership to be worthwhile, due to price reduction for meals and drinks. It is a family venue so if you are looking for a quiet and peaceful experience suggest you try elsewhere. Service was friendly and organised and meals arrived in a timely manner. Most of the tables with ocean views were reserved on the Friday night we attended so seating options were limited without a reservation.
