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.

Usually very good. However the last time they messed up the table booking. Ordered salmon for lunch. The salmon was very nice but the broccoli and sauce were cold. The meal was served in a bowl. Last time I ordered the salmon it was served...on a plate, much better. Definitely not worth $30. Maybe they have changed their Chef.More

This venue has great atmosphere, it is friendly, and all staff are very welcoming. The staff go out of their way to assist and provide recommendations with food and drinks. We have eaten at Emerald Lakes Golf Club many times and the food, service, menu...selection, bar and atmosphere has always been outstanding. The Operations Manager, Stefan Bowditch, is professional, efficient and extremely customer focussed, and he has a great team. Highly recommend.More

Nice atmosphere. Meals are good especially the seafood linguine which is as good as any Italian restaurant. For some variety check out daily specials.

I went to a funeral yesterday, and they choose to have refreshments & food at Emerald Lakes Golf Club. The staff where excellent and well organised, tables settings looking beautiful,couldn’t fault this setting.

Went for family dinner tonight, was not busy but still took over an hour for our meals that were average. It has gone down hill in food and quality since about june last year when manager and staff had big changes. Used be packed with...customers with great menu choices. Last visit 2 months ago was not good either but thought id try again tonight but no not nearly up to the quality it used to be. Disappointing when our family used eat there regularly over many years. AFL is nearly starting and if this is the quality and service to be offered then visitors may think twice before eating there. Need to Bring back the previous manager staff and menu which was exceptional.More

Paid $13 for APERO Spritz drink and no orange slice included, then order a gin and tonic with no lemon or lime added. When questioned the bar staff just looked at me like I was stupid. Must hire fools only there behind the bar. We...never got what we ordered.More

Everything on the Menu is value for money, and the quality of the food would suggest you are dining in a much more expensive restaurant.

A group of 10 of us all enjoyed our meals. Apparently the beer bettered barramundi was amazing. Only disappointment was two of us had $15 Margaritas which were over priced for the quality and quantity of the cocktails.

Sadly i don't know if i should go back , as i was told by one of your Barstaff to not come to his/her work ( not wanting to get the bar staff into trouble that is why i said his/her) i just think management...should have a little idea of what is being said by their staff to there customers all because the bartender has got a personal problem with me. So sad because the food and the drinks where amazing and the other staff members are beyond lovely. Might just pop in one night and if the bartender is there i will just leave. My friends enjoy going there on a regular basis but sadly i just don't feel comfortable going back to this amazing venueMore

As a couple, my husband and I have enjoyed lunch here many times, on our own, or with friends. We've also enjoyed dinner here with friends from interstate recently. On each occasion, the food has been excellent, tasty, hot and very generous. The ambiance is...great, overlooking the golf course and the river. At night-time, you need to book specific tables to take advantage of the scenery outside, much of it lit up by lamplight. There are two dining areas, both are well situated, and the feeling of being relaxed hits you as soon as you're seated. The service is very good, and timely. Prices are average for the quality of the meals. My only criticism would be that the wine list is a little spartan. Try it out, see for yourself.More
