I have always loved and supported Southport SLSC, when i was in my teens i patrolled the beaches outside the club and was a member for many years. We regularly eat here at the club and most of our family birthdays and get togethers are at the club. The staff are very welcoming and good customer service always when visiting... More

RESTAURANT'S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 17 April 2017

Many Thanks for our pick up and return from our accommodation plus the best meal we have ever had in a Surf Club. My husband and son had meat dishes, and I had Veggie, they where delicious. Congratulations, you have "Nailed it" :-) The location is also a winner....Gorgeous, away from the busy main streets. More

A family visit to Southport Surf Club for dinner was underwhelming. A rump steak ordered medium came out rock hard and rubbery with mushy chips. Kids meals were the usual nuggets and pasta. The salmon main was ok. When surf clubs charge $30 for main courses then you could expect a bit better. Service was good with meals arriving promptly... More

Just had a wonderful casual lunch at the club, excellent meals and quality drinks and service. Meals are reasonably priced and you've got a great view directly of main beach!

With the latest storms in the area we decided to have Brunch at Main Beach to see the result of heavy surf etc. The food was average and perhaps it is time for the outlet to review the menu and catch up with other food outlets in the area. Serving the same fare for too long may affect trade in... More

Popped in on a Saturday night for dinner. Busy but a good atmosphere, food arrived promptly, wait staff couldn't be faulted, sat near an open window & the sea breeze wafting through the window was lovely. Both had steaks cooked to perfection & the chips & salad was fresh as. Also had a win on the pokies which paid for... More

Went for a weekday lunch with a group of friends. We had a great table overlooking the beach and the meals were great. I had the eye fillet steak ($30) and it was excellent- as good as any restaurant. Add it the great location and it's hard to top.
