Stopped in for a quick meal. Wow, what a fantastic menu. Very up market with local fresh seafood on offer. Kid friendly, but not what you would expect from a bowling club. Very pleasant surprise!!

Upstairs is a great all you can eat buffet. The food is fresh. Plenty to eat. We had a family reunion there and the staff were very accommodating making sure we had enough to eat, clearing the plates from our table all the time. There is tables near the window which overlook the greens and water further out. Highly recommend... More

This is one of the best clubs I've been to. It has so many different things to do. The main restaurant is great and offers a buffet. There is a cafe with a kids play area next it and many other options. Definitely worth a visit.

I visit the Club regularly. The standard of food in the upstairs restaurant is excellent now. The new cafe/coffee area downstairs offers an excellent alternative if you dont want a large meal. I dont think I've ever seen an unhappy staff member, they are all happy, friendly and look like they enjoy being a work. A great place to go... More

We visited the Port City Bowling Club for lunch today. We were a group of ten ranging from 58 to 72 years of age. We were warmly greeted at the door. We went to the dining area and looked to see if we could get a few tables together so that we could eat together. I asked at the bar... More

The club is very nice inside, we found the buffet best value for money and they had enough staff to keep the tables clean before other patrons arrived. Staff were pleasant at this club.

A group of 6 of us enjoyed the buffet here last night. Big selection of food to choose from including a sushi train. Only complaint is the tables are jammed together to cram more people in.

We had the $25 all you can eat buffet which was superb quality and choice, unbelievable choice to be honest with fresh green lipid mussels, fresh prawns, octopus, usual popular Asian stir fried, wonderful BBQ pork and so much more. All I can say is that there was too much choice to be disappointed. I am a fish lover and... More

This is not your average club bistro style food, we had dinner at the downstairs Drift Cafe, our meals were delicious and full of flavour and one the best meals that we had during our stay at Port Macquarie.

Thank Jane A
