I like the food here.. They have a small variety of dishes.I like to order the small share plates rather than having a main. The bucket of prawns, Asian salad chicken skewers are great to share ... The atmosphere is always good here Don't forget the mosquito repellent!

A must do, if you love to sail or would love to sail. Wednesday night go along @ 4pm and put your name down for a twilight sail on one of the members boats. Its great fun. Afterwards sit back and enjoy a great meal and a few drinks with your fellow sailors and support a fantastic club. Great Fun...

We popped on over to the Yacht Club for their Wednesday afternoon sail. When accepted on the sail you are asked to stay for dinner afterwards. We were happy with the entire evening. Sailed on a beautiful boat with enthusiastic crew and fun guests then dinner at the "Yachty"--the yacht club's restaurant. We'd expected pub food but were really surprised... More

We were recommended to have supper at yacht Club, it was very busy but it was Easter Sunday and it was raining hard so everyone was packed inside Over priced for very average food We found much nicer places e.g. Hemingways

A very unassuming place hidden away off the main drag. Super food and sensible prices. Chilled out atmosphere. Kids happy, grown ups happy. Bring mozzy repellent just in case theirs runs out! We loved it so much we went straight back the next night!

We had dinner there the other night, was very good. There were vegetarian options. The food was well priced. The location was wonderful, love the sunset and strung up fairy lights.

Having been recommended to try this place we stopped in. Really great battered fish and fries and salad. Absolutely beautifully cooked and definitely the best I've had in a week of eating fish and chips in the area. Definitely recommend this place to everyone!

Even though it was raining, a great spot to kick back and relax and have a drink. Menu looked good. Drinks VERY well priced. Staff extremely friendly and so were the club members. We will try and get back there again

I was fortunate to join 4 other friends to enjoy excellent food & service.I had the Thai beef salad that was delicious, one had fresh fish & chips, one had calimari, one had curry & one had steak all of which were equally delicious. This is a great venue watching the boats go by & very relaxing.I would not hesitate... More

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"!
