A lovely atmosphere. Great if you just want a coffee and eats and enjoy the view of the Broadwater and yachts. All meals are served at different times. Can be very busy Thursday evenings after local yacht races.

The team at the Southport Yacht Club are exceptionable. Food is a grade above all GC clubs I have attended and the local crowd are very friendly. The outlook is extraordinary and it is a real gem.

This is a lovely looking Restaurant, with beautiful views, staff were attentive, would have loved to have seen waiter service for drinks, and for ordering food. Had pan fried Barramundi, which I thought was many days old and only just edible, but it still gave...More

I read about the Yacht club and dress code so I thought this might be quite nice. Well how wrong was I as the dress code doesn't apply at all. The service was very average and they charge a whopping 3.5% for amex. Wouldn't you...More

We are members of the Southport Surf Club just around the corner from the Yacht club so decided to try it instead. It's a bit more 'up market' than the Surf Club but a similar set-up. You sign in at the start ( unless you...More

What on earth has happened to your food?????? What an extraordinary location but the food has been sliding down over the past 12 months. Time for a manager to have a meeting and get a bit of motivation and passion back into the cooking staff! Come on guys get your act together. It doesn't take too long for word to get around and people eventually stop coming back...even with that magnificient view!!!!
