Our table was right up near the bar. When there was a function- trivia night- on.
I was seated at the end of the table, closest to the bar and the walk way into that function room. When the large amounts of guests were arriving, it was very awkward and unpleasant sitting almost in that walk way. The guests were dressed up and were very loud and excitable. Not exactly polite to other patrons. Which is not the venues fault. It’s unavoidable. Perhaps when there is a function on, don’t put chairs on those ends so other paying guests, don’t feel in the way and have people bumping into their seat and yelling literally behind them to Other function guests. The food was amazing. The table service excellent. And every aspect apart from position to this function entry was spot on. Well done to the staff on the night!

We had the roast on the Sunday. The vegetables and meat were cold. Not enjoyable. The three of us had it and all were disappointed on the coldness of the food

What a terrific experience, waiters adjusted table to we could watch the footy, changed the channel for us, and quickly mopped up a spilled glass (and re-filled for free). Dinner was well cooked and presented. Staff were eager to chat and do anything to assist. Night was topped off by Collingwood winning as well!

Nice Friendly Staff and a quiet, relaxing and enjoyable view to look over. Perhaps give each table a 'trivia' moment info sheet on the table.... what is the name of that mountain that sits so magestically in the distance.

Yummy food (as always) and accommodating to the kids. We always like coming here for a family dinner!

We were sat near what seemed like a function that made the whole restaurants be a little loud. I feel the group could have been closed off somehow?

Meals were pretty ordinary - Chips were not only salted but over salted which was unnecessary as my husband doesn't eat salt and that's why we have salt and pepper shakers on our tables.

We have gone to the North BALLARAT Sports club quite a few times. The menu is fairly limited and standard fare but it is cooked well and consistent with the quality. The staff are absolutely lovely and we have never had any issues.

The food on this occasion was TERRIBLE. It was dinnertime and we had the carvery. All of the meat was dried out and tasted like it had been reheated from lunchtime. There was a very meagre choice of vegetables and the potatoes were falling apart and stuck to the dish. Very disappointing.

This venue is easy to access and the service is very good. The charming young man at the front took our orders and was most helpful with my elderly mother's comfort and enjoyment of her meal.

Having the carvery the waitress failed to mention what our desert options were. When we went to the counter to order, she never even apologised rather stating "I should have told you what you could have but didn't". I went to ask a question when she jumped down my throat repeating "I should have told you you can only order from the cake fridge but I forgot". No apologies, rude as and never even allowed me to ask the question of "if I pay the difference, can I order from the a-la-carte" menu. This same waitress made the same mistake to the table next to us as well.
Absolutely disgusting.

Really enjoyed our meal. We went for my birthday and we had a great time. The food was nice. I like that there was a free colouring book for the kids, good idea.
The man running the raffle was very entertaining and did a good job.

We waited 40 mins for meals and the steak meals were cold. The beef from the carvery was very good. I rang at 4 to book and left a msg but did not get a call back 5.45. I had already booked on line as I was organising dinner for 7 people and needed to let them know. The staff member that rang back had no idea I had already booked via website and said that system doesn’t work very well.

We travelled to Ballarat to see relative and went out for dinner. We were a bit surprised at the cost of the meals since Ballarat seems to be a mid to low economic area. the food was great though. The bar drinks were also to everyone's liking including the coffee.
The Raffle was on during the period we were there so we were able to take part as a bit of fun.
The kids menu was good with the exception of the noodles that had a lot of vegetables that most children wouldn't eat.
The service overall was great and the venue is agreeable to the club scene with all amenities clean and accessible.

A fantastic dining experience as always at the North Ballarat Sports Club. Staff are friendly and attentive, meals arrive quickly, taste delicious and are great value (especially with a members card) and the view of the stadium is exceptional. Highly recommended, plus they cater for my wife's food allergy.

We had a good evening with family from Melbourne. The good was good and everyone enjoyed themselves. Our only complaint was our the position of our table was such that we experienced a cold draught from the front door constantly opening. This was especially felt by the people on that side of the table.

Of the five meals ordered, three were very good. The Seniors roast beef was dry and appeared to be a left over. It was moistened with gravy. Disappointing
One of the steaks was very underdone. The lemon meringuie was excellent, however the Spanish doughnuts were very oily, not really edible, possibly the oil was not hot enough to prevent them being soggy and oily - again disappointing.
