A great place for quality and inexpensive club food. Together with a cold beer and a spot on the balcony there are worse places to spend lunch or dinner

We decided to drop in and support the club for something different. Different is what we got. We ordered a T Bone and a Chicken Schnitzel. Both came with salad. The Schnitzel was over cooked and rock hard. Obviously cooked from frozen. It was like eating wood. Actually only had two bites. The T Bone was meant to be 450g... More

Nice cool place to sit on a tropically hot Palm Cove Day. The manager is a friendly hands on guy who is always whizzing around the club serving food or working behind the bar. The staff are friendly and there is plenty of organised entertainment that you would expect from a local club. The food however was disappointing for me.... More

This is a good place for a drink and/or dinner. We did both. Our only disappointment was that the special of the day ( Lamb shanks) was not available after we had set our mind on these. The grilled barramundi was great with a nice fresh salad. The steaks were cooked to perfection and very tasty. A reasonable selection of... More

Are here three times, Sunday buffet breakfast is good value, juice and coffee included. Lunch with family was good, nachos were delicious, dinner, we booked a table outside, calamari salad was nice, Parma a little dry though. Will return next year.

We stayed in apartments right next door to the SLSC. We did have a few meals there but one Sunday afternoon we happened to wander in for a drink and stumbled upon the ukulele players who were playing in the outside area. What a great group of people. We had the best afternoon listening and singing along with them. Sunday... More
