It's such a shame, as we use to go here quite often but since the kitchen/menu has changed we don't go as much.
We are creatures of habit.
My husband would have the Mixed Grill and I would either go for the Chicken Stir Fry (Noodles) or Butter Chicken.
The Mixed Grill used to be a mix for meat and fish, now it's meat, chicken & 'a fried egg".....really!! This isn't a breakfast option, who wants a fried egg?
Neither of my options are on the menu, unless you're a Pensioner (which I'm not). You're ok if you like pizza or burgers, which is not my fav.
The portion sizes have got smaller and prices seem to have increased.
This is why we come to the club, more affordable drinks and food, and food which is tasty.
The meals have lost it's 'zing' and I'd rather go to other cafes in the area, such a shame.

The value for money is no longer there. The quality is no longer there. Have they just succumbed to accepting the pokie money from the local populace? The Lions club of old is gone. Worst chicken I have ever eaten. Good drink prices for members.

We went for lunch and ordered Trawler Surprise and a Steak Sandwich. Seafood was ok, but the steak sandwich was the worst I have had. Meat was terrible, with a slice of tomato and some onions.

Had an enjoyable night out with friends but would not say food or atmosphere lived up to my expectations for a majors sport club, good range of Gluten Free food but one friend didn't have a good night after her GF food option, Staff where helpful and friendly, I will go back again if invited by friends but would not be my first choice.
