Very nice club, friendly staff, food bar areas. Nice play area for kids. The food was very good and as expected at a club, very good prices especially the drinks. We went on a busy friday night and it took an hour to get our dinner so be prepared for a wait on busy nights. Overall very good.

The fish and chips was great and only $18.5, also had the salmon wrapped in prosciutto which was about $29 and was delicious and beautifully cooked. Had a bottle of the cassegraine Merlot for under $20, highly recommended. Would be a great place with kids as there is a play area right next to the restaurant. They also offer free... More

Stopped in for a quick meal. Wow, what a fantastic menu. Very up market with local fresh seafood on offer. Kid friendly, but not what you would expect from a bowling club. Very pleasant surprise!!

Upstairs is a great all you can eat buffet. The food is fresh. Plenty to eat. We had a family reunion there and the staff were very accommodating making sure we had enough to eat, clearing the plates from our table all the time. There is tables near the window which overlook the greens and water further out. Highly recommend... More

This is one of the best clubs I've been to. It has so many different things to do. The main restaurant is great and offers a buffet. There is a cafe with a kids play area next it and many other options. Definitely worth a visit.

I visit the Club regularly. The standard of food in the upstairs restaurant is excellent now. The new cafe/coffee area downstairs offers an excellent alternative if you dont want a large meal. I dont think I've ever seen an unhappy staff member, they are all happy, friendly and look like they enjoy being a work. A great place to go... More
