I chose to go to North Ballarat Sports Club for a late Valentines dinner with my partner. It was perfect! We got a table by the window, staff were extremely friendly and helpful and the meals were quickly delivered and tasted delicious.

The carvery pork was dry - needed lots of gravy to get it down. Either over cooked or sat around for hours since the lunch service, or both. My wife said her beef was dry also.

Food was all great best fish we had for a while . Great value for mums seniors meal . And she enjoyed greatly, Bar man had to be told the order a few times then still got it wrong. The dinning room was a little on the chilly side but always has been when we been there lately . Over all great night out Jenny.

The table we were given was near the order counter and people were queued all around us, talking loudly and making us feel very closed in. Would not take that table again.

I think that the quality of the meals has dropped off. I also think that the raffle drags on for way too long. I was a little disappointed overall to be honest.

Roast meat had a re-heated taste rather than freshly cooked which spoilt things for us.

Garlic & Cheese bread is best in Ballarat. Steaks are tender and reasonably priced. Good selection on the Menu.

We had the Sunday Carvery. Ample serves, tasty, but the food could have been a little warmer. My companion thought it was ok. Sticky Date Pudding was spot on.

It would be great if they listed on their website that Sundays have a reduced menu due to their carvery.

Food was very poor. Garlic bread was soggy and undercooked. Kids had nuggets and chips the chips were hard and undercooked. Me and my partner had the parmigana and there was so much tomato topping that you couldn't taste anything else. The salad was dry, dull and boring. Very disappointed and won't be rushing back

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.
