The food has always been really great here except the oyster kilpatrixk topper I had with my steak ... one was as small as a pea....
Otherwise everything overall, price, quality, staff are amazing...

As we are only new members we didn't realise how busy it would be on a Sunday. And how 'frazzled' the staff would also be. After such we thought we would go and sit in the coffee area and have our coffee's there....its a tad too small an area for relaxing in. No chairs left in there at 1-00pm.

The service was slow the take orders but getting the food and drinks was quick. There needs to be more gluten free dessert options.

We came in for my birthday dinner just for two our table right next to the reception desk so was not relaxing Monday was the only option for sports club and it just happened to be a kids eat free night which meant it was noisy. It had atmosphere which was good for families not for couples.
The service was quick which has vastly improved since club first opened and the food also has improved as well but we felt due to the fact we didn’t order desert our plates were whisked away and we had to settle our account before we had finished our drinks so we vacated the table and tried to find somewhere else to sit of course most table were all taken due to raffle. So felt like eat and run canteen.

Very bad customer service seated at table lady came over asked if we wanted food said no we would like a drink

Jasmine looked after us and she was amazing ! It was nice to feel like the person waiting on us actually wanted to. She was helpful and genuinely friendly and went above and beyond.
The food was as always delicious and brought out in a timely manner.
We are yet to have a poor experience! Well done to all the staff at north lakes sports club for providing exceptional service every time !

Beautiful Meal, the service was excellent. The noise was energetic to say the least, only drawback. Even so, we are looking forward to our next visit.

We enjoy coming to the club to eat but feel that 2 problems have emerged lately.
One is the noise level is excessive and could do with with maybe a kid free area for those without children to enjoy.
Two is the menu really does need changing as it appears to have been pretty much the same since the club opened so we probably won't come back for a while.

I had the halloumi, pumpkin and fig salad. The pumpkin was boiled and tasteless, and I don’t believe there was any salad dressing on it. The halloumi was the best part. A very boring and disappointing meal. My husband had the seafood risotto though and thoroughly enjoyed it.

Food was lovely as always but there was a mistake with my meal and i had to wait for someone to make eye contact with us so we could get it changed. That meant by the time id got the correct meal everyone else was almost finished theirs.
magician was Great, made my kids night.

Lovely atmosphere restaurant that is bright and airy. Both my husband and I had the lunch rump. We both agreed that our steaks were undercooked and slightly tough. We have the steak regularly and this is the first time we have experienced either issues. As I like my steak well done, it was verging on being returned as it was more than pink and you could tell when the plate was placed before me it was under done by the colour of the juices. We had two waitresses of which the second one was more friendly. We will definitely return.

Dining out with kids and babies can be very hectic but the team of ladies from the front counter, seating, kids club made it very enjoyable.

Staff were all very kind going above and beyond to entertain the kids with drawings and were just plain lovely but without going over the top being intrusive.

All meals were perfect and delivered to the table promptly and very filling and delicious.

We will definitely be back again :)

Ordered an entree and a main meal for 2..asked that the main meal would not come too close to the entree. Main meal arrived before we had half finished the entree!! Main meal was fairly dry and the steak was not great.

Great service, not all clubs have table service and this venue has it just right. Value added I say, as I hate queuing up to place an order for special dinner as it feels like a canteen!!! So Banyan has my vote.

Enjoyed the meal. We tried to hear the MC using the sound system and had to go and ask each and everytime what was said. Not supportive for us patrons.

All meals were amazing & full of taste. The only thing we could criticise on is the Chef's Special Lamb Rumb was a little over cooked & didn't have the nice pink in it.
But overall, very good & we will be back again.
Regards to all Staff for their amazing work including the kids room.

Unfortunately on the night the meals at our table came out at different times, some were slow. One meal was wrong and was sent back. This person waited an extra 20 minutes for the meal, nearly an hour from ordering the meal.
Normally the service is very good, hoping this was just a one off.

Beer, service, staff, and surrounds were great. Food was very average. Someone commented my garden salad looked like it came from a Coles packet and we’re fairly sure the turkey did. The steak was WAY overcooked. The salmon salad was wet with little salmon. Very cheap presentation, cheap tasting, badly prepared. Price range itself is suitable but not for what you actually receive.
