This place is a very pleasant place to dine. The food is very good but also quite expensive. It is also very noisy. It was NYE so would like to try it another time.

Get there early because this is a popular restaurant mid-week. This is great value for money and very popular. Grab a table on the balcony and watch the sunset. - Perfect

Stopped here for a quick lunch on the way to the airport. Food was cooked in a timely manner and we enjoyed the views and the fish and chips!

A typical Surf Club bistro -food was average, staff were flat out due to a function and therefore difficult to get served at the bar. Great outlook and good for families.

Wife n I attended. Food was nothing special. Biggest shock was that it cost me $9 for a pint of Carlton super dry which at home would cost me $4.50 for the same beer.

I pre booked the small function room two days prior to attending on a weeknight. I attended at the venue together with a large group of friends to find the place under staffed having made the effort to book and explain at length the size of our group (40 adults).

Glenelg surf club has a view to die for and the breakfast was the best! A house made baked bean sauce was very clever with tomatoes properly roasted on the vine, eggs, bacon, hash brown and toast. First day open for breaky so pretty quiet but I reckon once the locals find out it will be packed house.

I think they are focusing on hiring club members rather then decent staff members as most are rude and lack costumer service knowledge.
