Visited the Coolum Surf Club to attend our daughters wedding. They have a large balcony overlooking beach where they set up the ceremony and inside was set up just beautiful for the reception. Food was great, service was great and location was excellent. Also came back with family for breakfast on the balcony next morning. Great place.

We had a very enjoyable meal here. Service was good and super friendly staff. Can get busy so a booking is probably advisable on weekends and in summer. But you can enjoy a drink and look at the view while you wait for your table.

Very nice place to eat. Great views of Coolum Beach, would recommend sitting outside for your meal right on the beach with beautiful breeze and sunshine but is in the shade so you won't get burnt. Nice relaxed atmosphere and friendly staff. I had mushroom risotto and it would have to be one of the best ive ever had it... More

There are specials everyday, all tempting.I had the chicken and my husband raved about the Tuna and said it was the best he's ever had, for desert we had the sticky date pudding and Panacotta, Bellissimo! Great service and reasonable prices for... More

we hit the surf club up, just before lunch was being served. So we sat outside of the restaurant proper - in a great seat, next to the window & in the aircon which was a necessity on the 38 day we were there! Meals were great, recommend the halomi salad.

If you have a large group, or are vegetarian do not go to this place. Absolutely appalling! What was meant to be a meal of vegatables came out in a ramikan dish which took them 2 hours to cook!!

The club has the usual enclosed eating area, but has an outdoor deck that overlooks the beach. It was a late morning visit and I sat on the deck with a milkshake peoplewatching.
