This place was amazing. I was so surprised by the quality and quantity of the food. On the first night my friend and I shared the seafood platter for two and we couldn't eat it all. Everything was so fresh and tasty. This made us come back a second time and I had the steak with prawn topper and my... More

Well done up bistro. Food was fantastic. The rib eye was moist and soft. The sticky date was amazing and a must try! Plenty of kids options with healthy choices too

Oysters were great! Calamari a bit great but with the prawn and balsamic and feta salad tasty! Right on the main drag, easy walk from caravan park. Would go again next visit!

Great views over the waves, and love watching the colours change with the sunset whilst sitting on the deck. Food is ok, nothing special though, but it is a surf club and not Michelin Star.... drinks are pretty expensive if you're not a member... In all, good place for simple meals with a view, but wouldnt say the food is... More

We're semi-regulars at the Surf Club and the food is mostly of a pretty good standard. It can be slightly hit-and-miss, but we wouldn't keep going back if it wasn't fairly consistent. On this occasion (lunch), the fish and chips was very good, except for the batter being a little overdone. Where some batters can be pasty and oily, this... More

Had the seafood platter for 2 to 4 and WOW what a feed, you name it, it was there from Oysters, fish, crab, scoops and the list goes on. Do your self a favour and try it out, but skip lunch so you have plenty of room.

We had visited the Noosa Surf Club and eaten there a couple of times before venturing out along the coast to Coolum. I was pleasantly surprised how smart this club is and the lunch special of an 8oz sirloin steak with all the trimmings for $15 was too good to miss especially as you can see and smell them cooking....
