Always a pleasure going to the surf club given the position, position, position of the place. The food is average and OK priced (become a member for $10 and get a sensible discount on everything) - try the sweet potato chips!

Expensive awful, but a great view. Won't ever go back for a meal. Great location and it would be better if the Cafe menu was updated & prices more inline with club pricing.

My friend and I went for a drink, lite lunch and to get out of the stifling midday heat. Managed to accomplish all the above except the "lite" lunch surprisingly turned out much more substantial...It's a good thing. We shared the calamari starter, garlic pizza and roasted pumpkin and feta salad...All so tasty and such big portions. Looking forward to... More

Popped into the surf club at Coolum for lunch on a busy Wednesday. While it was really busy, we quickly had a table and our orders were taken. The food was delicious, my crispy fried chicken burger was the best I've ever had and my husband's steak sandwich was superb. The pricing was reasonable too, so it was a fantastic... More

I have been here several times and the food is VG Club food in a wonderful setting. There is a discount for members. The view is 180 degrees up and down the Pacific a truly marvelous position. The food is good portions generous and all done simply and well.

Headed out on the Monday night to take advantage of the 'kids eat free' and once inside, we were walked past many empty tables, our party of 5, to an empty back room, to the furthest back table. No staff came near us (how could they find us) and we weren't going looking for them. Clearly the surf club did... More

Thank you for taking the time to review your visit with us. During the busy periods we use the back room for overflow seating. I can assure you that even though the tables were vacant when you walk past them they would have booked for customers who rang to do this in advance. We only use this area once all... More

Large group booking for a special Occassion. Took between 1.5 to 2 hours for meals to arrive. Some of the group were still eating mains at 10.30pm. The meals were good and the staff apologised after we complained. the situation could have been managed in a more proactive way. Maybe try somewhere else if you have a large group because... More

Thank you for taking the time to review your visit with us. Please accept my apologies for your experience. That night we experienced an unexpected high volume of diners which we would normally have been prepared for, this resulted in the wait time for your group of 30 reaching almost 1.5 hours. This is a very rare occurrence and I... More
