Not as cheap on price as I thought it should be, however the food was great. The real bonus is the local pick up and drop off "drunks bus". Will collect from local hotels and residences and drop you home again afterwards.

Waited over forty minutes for meal even though it was not very busy. Received our medium rare steaks served on vegetables that looked like scraps scraped from anothers plate, accompanied by bits of chips. Cut into the steak and was happy to see the pink inside, but spent the rest of the evening trying to figure out how a lovely... More

Marcoola is a great beach [except when the jellyfish are around and the jets takeoff and land] and the surf club is a nice and handy "local". Bar and restaurant are all pretty friendly and helpful. When things don't go right at the Club you have to remember it is a surf club not a 5 star restaurant/pub. The profits... More

This venue is a typical surf club, in that it is a huge food barn with little character, but makes up for that with sweeping views of the surf. I wasn't expecting much but thankfully I was more than pleasantly surprised. Lots of food options to choose from & our meals were excellent. We had a parma (really good), an... More

This place is right on the beach overlooking the water. It has a small lift for better access and quite a lot of tables. The menu is broad and children's meals are only $9.90 including a drink and ice cream. The children's play options include a sometimes working Xbox and toy skill tester for $2 a go. The meals were...

The Surf Club was spacious, clean, the food was well received. Our only complaint was that some of our party arrived later than us and it took them nearly 2 hours to get their meal. It might have been worth waiting for but most of us were ready to leave and they were just getting their meals. This was a... More

My husband and I went to this large establishment on Christmas Eve. It was very much like an RSL except it was full of families with small children. I had a great cocktail and the bar prices were very good. I also had the lamb shoulder with cous cous for dinner which was huge, great value and very tasty (although... More

Tourism Australia should be backing this place. First, some context. We are a family with a solid surf lifesaving background from New Zealand and have visited more than 20 Australian surf clubs over the years. So we are pretty well placed to pass judgement. Nothing even remotely compares to the hospitality we experienced at the Marcoola Surf Club. Usually at... More
