Have been to this Club a few times for drinks and dinner. Southport Yacht Club is perfectly located on the water overlooking the Broadwater at Main Beach. If you’re going to go for dinner I recommend making a booking as it’s popular. The decor inside...is lovely. It has some areas where you can just sit and have a drink before dinner. I’ve eaten there a few times and find it faultless. The food is always good, coupled with friendly and efficient table service. I was there recently and had the special of the day which was Barramundi - it was delicious. Other choices at my table were the Pork Schnitzel and the Chicken Schnitzel. All were paired well with fresh salad and either crunchy chips or vegetables. It did get a bit noisy because the plastic blinds were down in the bistro area so we retreated to the bar after dinner for a drink. Overall a 10/10 experience and we will return. And please be nice to the staff because they are Awesome.More

We've just enjoyed a wonderful family celebration catching up after extended Covid enforced restrictions. Great food, great location, great team working throughout the club. Certainly won't be our last visit.

Cheap and nasty, pub quality 2 star food at 4 star prices. Bruschetta burnt and unappealing, frozen/ defrosted and over cooked panko prawns, , etc Unacceptable noise due to reno on deck, surely this could be toned down during lunch service? Great location, POOR food...service and quality. Needs major changes , as a local, I wont be returning soon. Surf club is much better.More

No tables, no oysters, no seafood. We could have had a burger or shnitty - but didn't bother - you can have that anywhere. Menu fell well short of expectation - based on this place's ambiance.More

Thanks for your feedback. We understand the disappointment in not being able to order seafood. Unfortunately with the floods earlier in the month, the Club, along with many businesses, have been unable to source a lot of the current menu's produce. Deliveries are delayed and...More

This is one of my favourite places to lunch. A lovely big deck right on the water with a view of all the boats. It has a very good menu with reasonable priced food and good service. Drinks are available at the bar so it...is great to have functions so people can buy their own drinks if necessary. A real gem.More
