Yorkeys boat club, it's a local institution. Unfortunately, being a local institution makes for lazy chefs. We hadn't been for a couple of years and felt like a change. So we went through the new sign in procedures and were shown to a terrible table on the deck, which, given the very slow night and lack of patronage we ignored... More

We have been coming to Palm Cove for years and have never been to this place. WHAT A FIND. Sunday afternoon lunch, beautiful setting, great food that's well priced And and couple of guys on guitars to set the mood for a relaxing Sunday lunch. This was our first visit- it will definitely not be our last.

Visited sometime in OCTOBER 2016 for RIBS on a Wednesday and boy we had a feast of tasty ribs probably the best in Auz. To top it up the ambience is beautiful and the staff are there to save you for sure.Will be back next time we visit Cairns.

The best part of this venue is the location and view over the Marina. The food is up market pub food and generally good. Good selection. Nice cold beers to savour while checking out the million dollar vessels in the Marina.

There's a great guy called Steve who works at the Boating Club at Yorkeys Knob. If you visit, say hello. He's a Kiwi but still congratulated an Irish man on the convincing win against the All blacks past weekend. Let Steve recommend you a beer and I doubt if you will be disappointed. Try the Seafood Basket at around during... More

On a recent stay at Palm Cove, we dined at Yorkey's Knob Boat Club. What a top spot! We had a window table, great view and lovely meal.
