We dined here last Saturday for my 40th birthday. Unfortunately I won't be remembering it for the wonderful food or service. It was a shambles from the and Fawlty Towers has nothing on this place. It started with the courtesy bus. We booked our table earlier on the week and when we enquired about the courtesy bus we were told... More

We have been to the Boat Club on quite a few occasions but only once or twice a year at most being an interstate visitor. I should have been aware of their dress code but it slipped my mind.

45 minutes and still no soup and oysters. Staff attitude "tough luck that's the way it is". Only 1/2 full. Not busy as I have been before

I love going to the boat club for some cheap oysters and a cold cider with the family. There's always great service and the presentation of the club and staff is immaculate.

Vegges were cold. Chips were old and soggy. Pepper sauce was jelly, it fell out of container in one big blob. Steak was 30 % grizle. Tom Yum soup was an insult to Thai food. It was nothing but flavoured water. Obviously just opened a packet and added water.

Visited Yorkey's Knob for lunch, but sadly the staff insisted on dragging tables near where we were sitting. Very off putting when you are trying to enjoy a meal

We really enjoyed eating here and watching the boats sailing by even though it was a rainy day. The food was good and well priced. The staff were really friendly.
