That was the most delicious calamari, melted in the mouth but most importantly the membrane has been peeled off YAY! Nothing worse than calamari with rubber bands around it and getting stuck in your teeth... Wtg chef ! This calamari connoisseur is most pleased ✊ Everyone enjoyed lunch so cheers guys!

As we live in palm Beach we eat at the "Palmy" Surf Club regularly. The service is excellent & friendly. Food is always good & plenty of it. Coffes are excellent & beers are cold...Perfect combination.

We went there on a wed night which was steak and oyster night... we waited ages in line to be served and then they had run out of natural oysters not even 45 minutes into the dinner session... Asked for steak medium rare but it was more like well done... Disappointing.. We wont be back..

It's a bit hit & miss here... Sometimes awesome & sometimes mediocre... Considering the price Surf clubs charge these days you would expect it to be great food always. Take a shop a docket to toughen the blow. Awesome view though
