It pains me to write this but I don't understand the reasoning behind the new menu. Gone is my staple, and your crowning dish, the bowl of wedges, replaced by '"Patatas Bravas" in a tiny bowl that can no longer satisfy 2 mildly peckish people. I get it, you use about 1/4 of the potato, and the higher price ($10.50)... More

Loved coming down to the surf club for a couple of bevs with the crew this weekend. Friendly staff, cheap drink specials and amazing beer battered fries. 10/10 for the courtesy bus. We will definitely be back!

We booked a table and after some confusion over the booking we were seated. The veggie burger was delicious. The staff were friendly enough. It's a very busy noisy place but we enjoyed it.

Sensation place on the GC for a Sunday arvo beer. Smaller club, nice and quiet. Cold beer served with a smile. Huge balcony with live music to boot! Not as big and flash as some of the nearby surf clubs but a waaay better atmosphere.

We were all quite disappointed in the quality of food. Steaks were terrible. Service OK. Nice views. Wine and beer very expensive compared to other surf clubs. We would not return to this venue.

I always make a point of visiting Nobby's when I am in Gold Coast, the beach around there is stunning and Nobbys is well located to nip up for a drink after a swim. The prices are pretty cheap, food is always tasty, and the staff are really friendly. Mick who drives the courtesy bus is a great guy -... More
