Enjoyed the laid back atmosphere of GSLC and the food was first class and reasonably priced. Give them a try. We had the fillet steak and the chicken schnitzel which were most enjoyable.

Stopped by for lunch with my family - no reservation but early enough to secure a table on the balcony with its fabulous view over Glenelg beach. Extensive menu and friendly staff.

Great food , well presented . Chef's take care to put plenty on the plate. Friday's and Saturdays are busy in summer , so recommend pre-booking a table. The view is superb, especially at sun down.

A hidden gem! Been past lots but never realised there was a club restaurant upstairs. Good selection of pub fare food, well priced and one of the best burgers I have ever had!! Family friendly and some great views across Glenelg beach and jetty from the balcony.

Good honest food served in a casual style. A busy surf club well worth a visit if in Glenelg, you will not be disappointed.
