I love this club. Love the atmosphere. The staff are great. Food lesser. Share platter was bland at best and pretty ordinary. Oysters Kirkpatrick dry and tough. Bugs dry. Prawns fine but obviously from frozen and oysters natural were ok but on the small side. The brains were ok but the "nimbin cheddar mousse" was foul. Dry, crumbly and tasteless.

What a beautiful location, especially to view the amazing sunsets on the Gold Coast. The restaurant is in a perfect location overlooking the harbour, it is nice to be able to enjoy dinner whilst admiring all the boats out in front. The wait staff were very friendly, it was a very busy night the night we were there but we... More

We went to breakfast with extended family as we live locally and thought a walk with Breakfast would be nice. First you are received at the entrance asked to prepay and handed a plate. We were not shown to a table, no table setting and cutlery up at the bar. The offerings were dismal, there was no egg options just... More

We have been members for years and have watched the changes, you have a great outlook of the marina with. Sunday's they have a BBQ on the pontoon and the normal lunch menu, so you have plenty to choose from.

It's been pretty quiet most times I have been to the Yacht Club. They have a fantastic position overlooking water and feel they could do more with it to attract more people. Lacks atmosphere. Food is ok.

Tired of booking a table to be given 2 hours to vacate your table? The SYC lets you sit on the deck with a magnificent view for four and half hours and they reap the reward of trying to fill a table twice in one sitting. Yep, we drank more than we ate but lots of places would like to... More

Family dinner with 3 kids under 10... We got a seat by the bay which was nice. The food arrived promptly and was of agreeable quality. The oysters were somewhat bland while the steak was rare as requested and very tender. Overall just a lack of atmosphere prevented a higher rating.

Buffet breakfast @ $15, I expected better. The food was very ordinary. The choice was very limited, only 3 sugary cereals to choose from, fruit platter was most unappealing, it was just 2 fruits, watermelon and maybe pineapple, sitting in a soggy liquid. Bain marie offered just scrambled eggs, little sausages, hash browns, bacon and baked beans. We found out,... More

Thanks for your feedback JLorKen Sorry to hear you found our buffet ordinary, but certainly appreciate the feedback. Cold water was most certainly available, and especially being a hot day, was situated on the end of the bar beside the hot section of the buffet, for ease of access. Serviettes were with the cutlery and next to the coffee station,... More

The yacht club offers some great specials early in the week, with a Tuesday $12 parmigiana night . Large tender chicken parmigiana generous chips and salad that has a bit more flair to it than the usual side of salad! Lovely view of the Southport Marina and fabulous boats.
