    Booking on line was a bit confusing, as there was no explanation of what Hi Top Seating was. Also, we wanted a table near the window, but we couldn't find a seating plan or book a seat in managing our booking

    My husband & I regularly have our Sunday breakfast at the Surf Club. On our last visit our meals took 50 minutes to come out. When our meals did arrive my husbands big breakfast was cold, not even warm. It was not as busy as we have seen it. We appreciate that they may have been short staffed, but there's no excuse for cold food.

    The young lady that took our order was just wonderful. Polite, bubbly smiling face helped us order and made sure we didn't forget anything. Spoke to us personally not just another robotic server. Breakfast was delicious and made to our liking. Will most definitely eat there again when we visit the area.

    Food has taken a while but maybe because the place was busy the time we dine in but our orders all came in all together and Food was delicious. Service was very good as staff even sings when they brought out the cake for my friends birthday. With the new set up of the dinner it was very nice and welcoming. It would be best to book in a table before you go to make sure you will have one reserved for you when you get in as it might be busy on the date you wanted to dine in.

    We have been coming here occasionally over the last 10 years, has always been great. The wait staff seem to be at the best they have ever been, well trained, friendly, helpful and exceptional at their jobs. The woman taking the orders managed to get through 80% of the restaurant in about 15 minutes, a process that used to take a lot longer. The food for the table all arrived within minutes of the first plate coming out. The bar staff were fantastic. I have always recommended this club but do so even more after this latest experience.

    The staff you have at the Surf Club are definately your most valuable asset, always pleasant, attentive and have a great attidude. The view tops any other eatery in town. The food is good and is always of consistent quality. The only issue I have was, that I would like to have an option to order, pre-order if necessary, of more fresh seafood, although the tempura is very good.
