We always go to Watsonia RSL for dinner & have for many years. Recently my husband & I went for dinner & found the quality of the food had gone downhill but prices had gone up. We found the meals are not such great value anymore.

I went with family to enjoy Christmas Lunch here. What a disappointment, the food was very average, the queues for the food were huge, I had to ask the staff to fill up empty meat trays, salad platters and desserts. The potatoes were hard - must have just been waved over heat. The musician/singer was far too loud and we... More

The Wednesday night specials are such good value for money and lovely meals. I would recommend it. I have been there regularly and never had any problems.

Thought we'd try 'Burger Night' (Thursday nights). The burgers were $15 each and very basic with only lettuce and tomato. They had a list of extras at a cost. So if you wanted the equivalent of a burger with the lot you'd be paying at least $17 and the burger tasted no better than a burger I could buy around... More

Great RSL, we had a table of 10, are members so got extra discounts on meals. Seniors meals for our parents where huge, they enjoyed them. All meals are big, kids meals came out quickly, staff very friendly and helpful.

Thank Tammy S
