Nothing better than ordering a beautiful steak, fries & salad, heading to the bar for an ice cold beer and then going out onto the deck watching the boats come and go - better than sex!!!

This is the second time we have dined here and once again the food was disappointing. The chips were terrible and the steak sandwich had hardly any sauce and a horrid large lettuce leaf on it, with an overtoasted bun. The chicken nuggets tasted like dog food. Not reccomended.

Have held functions at the Club and their success can be contributed to the very helpful and professional staff which has made the organisation less stressful. We have always had a nice meal at reasonable prices and served by very friendly staff.

The fish and chips was tasty and portions large. Fresh flathead with chips and dressed salad was one of the best meals I've had in a restaurant. The wait was 30 minutes but we were quite happy to wait as we had a view where we could view the bridge opening and closing as well as boats nearby.

Very clean and well positioned dinning area for a casual dinner at a reasonable price. Excellent choice and staff are very accommodating. The view to the waters edge is perfect and often you can watch the fishing club weight in the biggest catch of the day, sometimes its sharks!.

Only a short stroll from caravan park at Blacksmith;s beach to RSL club. Very comfortable and homey. Menu selection was excellent, Could not go past the fish. Even though she who must be obeyed had a steak, which was prepared to her liking, medium rare.
