We wanted to eat breaky and thought the surf club would be good. NOT. On entrance the bar staff just blert out words at you rather than any service. Music that created a cocktail bar feeling.....not great for breaky...The coffee was poor, ordered flat white and got so much foam with old taste at best..with grind down side of cups... More

During a day with the kids at South Bank for school holidays we visited here for lunch. Entering the location a nice gentleman showed us to our table and we quickly decided on 3 burgers and chicken nuggets and chips. We waited for 45 minutes and nearly left because not even the kids meal was brought out. Our waitress saw... More

Over priced for over cooked meal! Ordered a big breakfast...toast was burnt, poached eggs were way over cooked, halloumi was deep fried and unrecognisable and the bacon was over cooked and didn't even taste like bacon.

Very impressed. Have to say the service was great. Right from the girl on the register to the manager who was walking around helping. Friendly and helpful. The brekky was also well priced and very nice! Big thumbs up. Thank you!

We just decided to go in for a drink. It seemed a really relaxed Sunday arvo with live music. Pretty chilled atmosphere. Best thing about here in my opinion is the views across to the city. You can sit here and have some of the best city views about, would imagine at night it would be a superb view. All... More

I ate here a number of times when Ben O'Donoghue owned it and was excellent. Cant say the same now. Food was below average, staff don't seem to care. Won't go back again. Such a shame as is a great location

Can't complain about the location and the staff were great, only downer was the average food, apart from fish of the day which was salmon and enjoyed by those fortunate enough to select it. The rest had the soft shelled crab burgers or the whiting burgers which disappointed given the price. The buns weren't toasted, no beetroot, not enough salad... More

Had lunch here when in Brisbane recently. This is a nice pub style venue upstairs in South Bank, Good food, pleasant service, and the elevated position gives you a great view out over South Bank. Would happily dine/drink here again.
