You can't beat the location, which keeps us coming back, but the resaurant is over priced and of very variable quality. We've had to send meals back - over cooked and dried out steaks and seafood.

Have been on a number of times and always look forward to going back. Great eat & drinks but can never get over how great the view is each time. Can't beat the Sunny Coast for a lazy Sunday arvo lunch.

Food was great, and value for money. We could not fault the service from all of the staff. Amazing views from the restaurant.

our meals were ok - average. they were presented very well. the only reason we went there is because you can see the beach as you eat ( why cant you book a table in the outside area though?) staff are friendly.

Coolum S, Manager at Coolum Surf Club, responded to this review

Thank you for taking the time to review your visit with us. I am sorry you were disappointed with not being able to book an outside table, the reason for this is that the deck is weather dependent. If we booked the deck tables, the weather turned and the restaurant inside area was full then we would not be able... More

Probably the best surf club in QLD and the best for food, service and atmosphere in Coolum. We had the seafood entrees, salads and steak over 4 nights. We haven't been disappointed. The service and efficiency of the staff here is fantastic. Everyone in the club seems to enjoy their work. The menu offers great variety and specials.

We have been here a few times now and have never been disappointed! Our last visit was on New Year's Eve. We ordered the seafood platter and i had the bugs. The bugs were delicious and not over cooked at all. The service is efficient and friendly and not to mention the fabulous views! love coming here.

A favourite of ours for a few years now, it didn't fail to impress once again. Menu had great variety, food was delicious and served promptly. Beer and wine was icy cold and refreshing. This was my first visit during the "high" season, and I was equally impressed at how well they managed the additional patrons without making you feel... More
