My husband and I ate here on a Saturday lunch. The menu wasn't huge, but there was enough of a choice. We ordered the bucket of prawns and the Asian fish cakes, and we were both very happy with both. The beer was cold, and the service was friendly. We will be back!!

We haven't been here for a few years, but it will become one of our eating spots again, the food was amazing and great value. The curry was great. Thank you.

We visited this open to visitors club for dinner because it looked relaxed and comfortable in the heat of a FNQ summer evening and we weren't disappointed. Very generous serves of fish and chips and chicken schnitzel were served promptly. Both meals were tasty and very well priced for the amount of food brought to the table. Service was casual,...

If your like me and you love boats you will enjoy wandering around the club. I was told that a multi-million dollar upgrade was in the works so that the mega yachts could dock - that would be a sight to see. Nearby are all manner of eateries and assorted tourist shops if you are in the mood to spend... More

Lovely sitting outdoors amongst the palms. Sit beside the river and watch the boats go by. Great food.

I have now eaten there twice, and was underwhelmed both times. On the first occasion, a lunch with friends, I did not feel that the chicken schnitzel was made from a chicken breast, but probably preformed chicken. The second visit was with a group for Xmas lunch, and I have to say that the roast that I had was worse... More

Pat, The Chicken is bought in fresh and prepared daily in the Kitchen. "Preformed Chicken" what can I say except for your are totally wrong! We had 120 guests at the Club for Christmas lunch and we received rave reviews. Its always disappointing when people choose to wait a Month before mentioning something rather than addressing the issue straight away... More

We enjoyed a really great meal in a nice setting overlooking the yachts and marina. Service was friendly and efficient. We ate sirloin steak and grilled tuna, both of which were beautifully cooked with plenty of vegetables. Kids enjoyed their panko chicken with mash and veggies. A wonderful spot for a reasonably priced meal with beautiful views all around. Highly... More

The Yacht club was very good. We went on a Tuesday and it was very quiet. Service was fast and the food was high quality. Definitely recommend this.

Though the staff were friendly and drinks were cold, the menu was very limited and food was only ok.

The Port Douglas Yacht Club is a unique and beautiful venue, located on the Dickson Inlet. Rick Preen our amazing new caterer has recently come on board, so do yourself a favour, come down have a Beer, Wine or Cocktail and sample Rick's wicked cuisine! If you're interested in holding function here, you have come to the right place. Send me an email and I will be sure to give you a call. Look forward to seeing you at "The Yachty"!
