Enjoyed several meals here and not disappointed. Good food, good service in a friendly setting. Stand out service from Heidi who really looked after us during Airlie Beach race week. Sure there were times when the kitchen was overwhelmed with masses of hungry sailors but generally great place to enjoy a meal and drink.

Called in for lunch and sat out on the balcony. Nice spot, but pity about the angled sun shade as it does detract from the view. Big tent set up below for the race week entertainment which also blocked a bit of the view. Food was good and plentiful, well cooked and presented. Staff was friendly and attentive but busy....

We visit the gambling room for an hour before ordering a meal, partake in the monster meat raffle and have a ticket in Keno. Good entertainment for us, great meals and a great venue... More

Stopped in for lunch and got the chicken pot pie. Delicious and excellent value. Staff friendly and lovely outlook on the balcony overlooking the harbour and boats. Will definitely come back.

Had lunch with 14 others for a 50th birthday. Were not able to reserve a table - but when we management had no issues with us moving table around on the deck to accommodate our group together. Food was lovely - good value prices and a good sized portions for the money.

With water views and an affordable menu, we enjoyed a long lunch at this club. The food was nice but not devastating. An easy walk from town and a great spot after the Saturday markets

This sailing club may be a bit of an institution, but now that the marina has been built the expectations have been raised and this isn't keeping up. An entrance dominated by pokies and a tired decor. Would be ok for a cheap drink but there are better dining options close by

Had a great $12 pasta, it was good food and value for money. We had kids ranging from 7 through to 16 and all enjoyed it.
