Staff politely indifferent
Food overpriced for value
Bar staff wouldn’t give us drink voucher discount unless we found waitress and brought it back! Why would I lie for three dollars!!!

The service was a little slow, my sweet the pavlova smash was not nearly as nice as the first time I had it, it seemed like it was an after thought. The menu says full table service but that didn’t happen all the time & people were getting up & going to the bar & ordering food, so it was confusing. My mum wanted a Gin & tonic but there was no tonic. It wasn’t up to its usual standard.

Food was very tasty but such a small serving. Seemed as though the kitchen thought it was going to run out of food so served infant-sized portions.

the food was very good but the service was very slow. had to check in at front desk and it took them at least 10 mins to get around to it as they kept walking off to do other stuff and forgetting. and food service was poor as staff was not paying attention and was just talking to each other. This was a disappointing thing to see as I been going to the club for years as a paying member.

Friendly service, a limited but well considered menu and staff totally in control of new Covid 19 procedures makes for a refreshing culinary outing for the budget and safety conscious.
As for ambience. I loved having a meal and conversation at a club without having to compete with the flashing and crashing of pokies. Remember to book!!

Really nice to be back. Food and service excellent as well as greeting at the entrance. It is a real pitty that this government has created so much interuptions both to North Ballarat Sports Club and other venues in Regional Victoria. Trust that you will be able to enjoy many more patrons enjoying quality food and service sooner than later.

Look forward to making a new booking quite soon. The 'Open Tabl' booking service is really really good - well done!

Again nice to be back - good food, quality service. Nice to win a couple of the raffles!

Disappointing thgat lockdowns are in place and trust that we will return sooner than later.

Wouldn't have been nice to have some support from Local MP's - nothing to be heard of and from our perspective not supporting and assisting small buiness in Ballarat and local environs.

Been going to the Ballarat sports club for a while now. Portion sizes used to be really good but now they are very small. Really appreciate the staff being there through covid 19 and they're very polite but I can get much better bang for your buck elsewhere.
