We went to the breakfast last Sunday for the first time, and couldn't fault it. The variety of cooked meals was really good, and the meals were huge. You couldn't walk away from there still feeling hungry. The restaurant was clean and the staff very helpful. I wasn't able to find better value for money during my trip to Surfers... More

My husband and I went to the Surfers RSL while on holiday recently and the food was terrible😫 I ordered a chicken roast and couldn't eat it. The veggies were so over cooked and the outside of the roast potatoe was as hard as a rock. Do yourself a favour and don't eat at this venue.

New menu, only a few things on it. Caters for everyone, but not exciting. Did how ever enjoy the Diggers burger and husband had steak. Both cooked and presented well. One waitress running around like a mad hatter, making coffee, pouring beer and serving tables. The chef did deliver meals to tables. Nice to see the person who cooked. Overall... More

This venue provides good quality and good value meals for all ages. Service has improved again and there have been some menu changes for the better. A convenient location in Central Surfers in air conditioned comfort.

A quiet oasis to escape the crazy shopping malls on a particularly wet day in Surfers Paradise. They offer a very good range of options to suit all tastes. Staff were all very friendly and helpful.

Meals are basic pub fare, friendly staff and reasonably priced, a bit outdated but you get that! Overall a good place to go.

We were here for dinner. The service was fast, friendly and attentive, prices were very reasonable and the meals were ample and great value. The large public parking directly opposite is also a big plus.

We had dinner here last week and we thought it was so good we went back last night! Bistro/pub type fare with a good variety on the menu to choose from. Garlic focaccia was really nice. All our meals were lovely. We tried the calamari, grilled fish, chicken parmas and pasta carbonara. Good side serves of either salad and chips... More

The breakfast here is very good for the price you pay. It's cheap and cheerful and in a quiet setting looking over Surfers Town.

Place is a bit rundown. However the staff were extremely friendly, especially Chris the Duty Manager, who went out if his way to make you feel welcome as well as answer any questions asked. A lovely man. Very cheap drinks!!
