We enjoyed our meals and the service was okay, although waitstaff have to be encouraged to serve.
The dissappointing feature was the excessive noise from the live music and raffle announcements,
overall it was a good experience.

Airconditioning too cold. Chicken Parmigiana was cold, overcooked and lacked taste. Overall, your menu (including drinks) is too expensive and now I am being bombarded with texts and emails. Too intrusive!

Nice relaxed atmosphere, good prices and great food! What is not to like? We took an overseas couple to dinner and were very happy with the evening. A nice friendly atmosphere where we were able to eat, talk and generally enjoy each other's company, all with a very reasonable price tag! Highly recommended!

I always have the pleasure of going to this club with my wife and daughter. I love the atmosphere, neat and presentable. The customer service is awesome and they always seem to have staff willing to assist at anytime. I also love the baby seats as my daughter enjoys being part of the table🙂. The area is spacious enough to wheel a stroller or wheelchair through and the coffee area is also lovely. Top place to be for sure, I will definitely be inviting friends and families there for a get together soon🙂

Booked lunch for eight people for 12pm. Shown to alcove next to register which was excellent as it was very private. Staff arrived at our table within minutes of us being seated. Meals ranged from pork belly,fish pie,and chicken dish and were all excellent and arrived within 15 to 20 min. We have been to different restaurants all over the world some good some bad but the service,food,staff and atmosphere were excellent. Will be coming back.

Was disappointed that I wasn’t allowed to swap the salad for vegetables and was told even if I had an allergy I couldn’t change the salad as it came premade and if I had an allergy then I shouldn’t have the salad but there was no other option for me. Poor form.

No I won't. we had to wait, then once we sat down, we were told some one would be over shortly to take our order, but we waited and waited and ended up chasing some one up to take our order. when our order came my duck was over cooked and my husbands dish was suppose to come with whole beetroots. but it came with sliced beetroot instead.. We could have walked out their was no one there when we went to pay our bill, so we had to chase some one up again so we could pay our bill. I know the table next to us was not happy either.

Firstly we felt unwelcomed by the staff at the counter on the way in as they did not hear us when we said we were members already, and said we had to at least know someone who was...Then the menu was a bit unclear, but all good, went past that, then the kids did not feel like staying in the kids club as the only way they could get out was if we signed them in and out each time, that is a great idea safety wise but our kids didn't feel comfortable knowing that they could not come to us when they pleased. Overall it was an ok night.

We have eaten at your venue several times and we have always been 100% satisfied.
On Saturday 3 from our group of 4 ordered the 200g eye fillet, medium rare. They all arrived well done. We sent the 3 steaks back. The waitress was wonderful and she sincerely apologised. She provided a complimentary drink to each of us and we were impressed. The replacement steaks arrived a short time after but they still were not medium rare. At this point the 4th member of our group had completed her barramundi, so we didn't return the steaks. So in conclusion, it was disappointing but it won't stop us returning to your restaurant.

Very open sitting with a lot of families with children initially. Probably should have just gone to the cafe/bar area as seemed better value for money and not so many families with small children. The club is also really that central either. The staff were nice and friendly.

The Sunday night roast was scrumptious. Only downside was no baked pumpkin, maybe next time. Also the airconditioning was so cold, we had to eat and leave, even your staff had jumpers on.
On the whole though I would recommend your club to any & all. The staff really know how to show what Customer Service is

Everything was good except there was nothing that a person who is GF, DF and can't have soy sauce had nothing to eat except a bowl of veges, I don't know if we should have rung up prior to our event if a dish would have prepared for the one person who had lots of allergies.

Food was the main disappointment. I ordered 2 tapas for my meal and both tapas were overwhelmed by a huge amount of green pesto on each plate. I couldnt taste anything else and didnt enjoy the pesto at all so it ruined my meal completely. It would be good if the tapas were kept varied and maybe try a different sauce on one of them, that way if you dont like the sauce, your whole meal isnt ruined.

80s night was great fun. Surprised that there was hardly any tables or seats set out when this night always draws a big crowd. Loads of people with nowhere to sit or nowhere to rest their glasses. The older bouncer was really helpful and carried through as many tables and chairs as he could. This should have been set up initially though.

We had a good night. Food was a bit disappointing, but we had a fun night in the end.

The evening was pretty good except for the fact that we were not offered water for the table but had to ask twice the eventually got some at the end of dinner. This only after I asked if they forgot about us when waiting 15 min for desert. Guess at this time of the night it was more around the aim to close shop for the night
