Unless you are very observant you will miss the turn-off to the club, arrive at 12 for lunch and the best table.
The food is well above average and the prices are very reasonable.

Give the parma a miss very dry and tasteless
However everything else we tried over a few meals was really great
Good service great burgers and an awesome view out to the bay from the deck

Having been to this yacht club many times, it was really great to see the upgrade
they have done since visiting last year. A great restaurant, good service & good updated menu. They have change all the dining to the new part of the ckub, where it used to be is now casual sitting either on comfortable sofas/chairs or at bar tables with stools overlooking the yachts. It is also a place where the cruise ships dock for stopovers to visit Cairns & all the surrounding places of interest. Prices are very competitive fir both beverages & dinner. Great place to watch the sunset.

Went for lunch with Brisbane guest, greeted well at the door beautiful view but all down hill from there. Ordered 3 meals,1st arrived 1hour and ten minutes later the other 2 one hour and 15 minutes. All surrounding tables experienced the same issues, people were finishing or half way through their meal whilst others at their table were still waiting. No explanation given other than we didn't expect it to be this busy. As a local in Cairns I do not consider it as a busy afternoon. Food ok.

I never leave reviews so this is my first and probably only time I will do so. I just hope this feedback will help after yesterday's lunch visit (06/06) We've come to the boat club on a number of occasions and have seen a lot of changes the last few months in particular. The restaurant is no longer on the main deck which is fine as its now in a beautiful room overlooking the marina. We hated the queuing system so we're very much glad table service was given a go and the service and wait times improved massively and we just have a much better time that way and loved it more and more. However why why why have you changed it back to Bistro service??? And who's idea was it to put the queue right next to the entrance so when we arrived yesterday afternoon we were greeted to a big queue at the entrance which we couldn't walk through properly just to be able to get into the restaurant!!! Not very inviting at all! The staff seemed just as annoyed and confused as us as to why they have changed the system again!! We can't imagine the chaos it causes on a busy night...where do they expect us to queue especially with tables right next to the tills where you order so you'll be queuing on top of people eating!?!?!!!

The food and staff are excellent which is why I've given this review 5 stars but the management get a BIG FAT ZERO from me!!!! Poor move!!
