Dined here twice on our recent trip, great menu with plenty of choices and also serve meals until quite late. Could not fault any of the meals we had which ranged from the chicken parmie, seafood basket, garlic prawns to the children's meals. Staff were friendly and helpful. Would definitely visit again.

After an afternoon on the beach and pier, we randomly picked the surf club for dinner and it turned out to be a good choice. We both opted for the chicken parmigiana, which we later found out is a bit famous, mainly for its sheer massive size! Quality was ok – up to surf club standards and definitely ok in... More

A nice local restaurant featuring a menu with many nice selections from burgers to sea food featuring really great French fries prepared as fries ought to be prepared which includes twice frying the fries. A nice upper level dinning room with nice views of the beach several blocks away and pictures of the local beach life saving club.

Perfect views from the balcony straight across Glenelg Beach vastly improved the below par food. We went on the offer night and therefore it was okay value however I would have been very disappointed had I paid full price.

We took a home made banana cake for friends birthday dinner, nothing was too much trouble, they even gave us plates, spoons and serviettes and didn't charge anything. Some locals having a party were a little noisy. Bit bright and lacked ambience, but food was fantastic!

Smelly oysters. Unfriendly staff. We ate smelly oysters and felt sick straight away. Couldn't enjoy our dinner after. Told the staff didn't do anything. Ruined our family dinner. Overpriced, good wasn't that good. I would not recommend to go there.

We sat outside which was perfect. Pub type meal all good and didn't have to wait long. Waitress was friendly and obliging. Prices very reasonable. Fish and chips were delicious.

The location is great being right on Glenelg beach. The Fish and chips were good but took a long time to be served. We had been warned when ordering that it would be 45 mins and it was probably over this time. May be better to visit at a quieter time than over the Christmas period.
