About
In 1925, the renowned hotel entrepreneur James (Jim) Cavill arrived on the scene and created the legendary Surfers Paradise Hotel. Over the decades we have evolved into one of the Gold Coast's most iconic venues; a home for locals, visitors, and the heart and soul of Surfers. The Beer Garden we know and love has been resurrected, with a fresh and inspired new design. Watch all your favourite sports. Play Games. Socialise. People watch on Cavill Avenue. All with a cold beer or cocktail in hand, and the best food the Gold Coast has to offer. Open daily from 11am.
Duration: 2-3 hours

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Service wasn’t very good, asked for food to come at same time as our friends and didn’t arrive until 20 minutes after we ate ours. When it finally arrived there was a black hair in the cheese platter. Food isn’t good, I mean who puts raspberry and mint in a sticky date pudding.. Won’t be back or recommending.

This restaurant is in a great location and was across from where we were staying, we did not need a booking and there were plenty of tables to choose from however given that there were not too many guests dining at the time, our meals took forever. The garlic bread starter came out with the mains and the staff were not friendly and plonked our food down without even saying a word. The food was ok but nothing to rave about. There are plenty of options for food on and near Cavil Ave, what makes this place unique is that there are Jenga blocks to play games while waiting for food however we chose to sit on the balcony where there were no games to keep us entertained while we waited around 45 minutes for our meals.

Okay me and my partner decided to venture and try a new bar around in surfers paradise, so after a quick web search we ended up at the Beer Garden in Surfers paradise.

Now personally I don’t drink but my partner does so thankfully there was fun activities for both of us to do to keep us entertained. My partner drank and I planned onslaught of games and activities they had to offer such as giant connect 4 and giant Jenga so let me tell you I had a blast. Aside from that I had the staff member by the name of Tatum work her first shift the same night I went and she was phenomenal, she offered great customer service and just made the visit a very personalable experience.

Thanks again Tatum and thank you Beer Garden, I’ll definitely be returning when I’m back on the coast!!!

The location is brilliant and outdoor area lovely for sitting outside, even in winter.

The service and food not so much. We started with the empanadas filled with red bean and beef with salsa and sour cream and were disappointed and found they were boring and flavourless. The overall option was that they were not worth eating, but we were hungry.

The Mexican veggie burger - roasted carrot, kale and chickpea patty with lettuce, tomato, (non-existent) corn tortillas, guacamole and sour cream had flavour but was a sloppy mess. What a shame I paid extra for plastic cheese.

Unfortunately, the chips were the best part of the meal, however it's worth a visit for the location and selection of drinks. We recommend sitting on the balcony in the sun with a nice drink enjoying the afternoon in Surfers Paradise.

During my 10-week language stay on the Gold Coast, the Beergarden was a regular meeting place to have a drink after school or in the evening. Great ambience, fair prices and varied music.

I can't judge how the beer garden is doing today.
But 5 years ago it was definitely one of the best places in town.

We booked a table of 20 for a retirement party and we could not fault the venue. We had 2 tables with priority service for drinks and food. The staff (especially the lady manager) was very attentive and hospitable. The calamari was the best I've ever eaten and a lot of my friends said they will definitely be back for the food. The atmosphere was awesome, a mixed aged group, so all ages were welcome. Would definitely recommend this venue for reasonably priced food and drinks. There were heaps of board games to play but we were too busy catching up with everyone. Congrats to the staff.

My friends were rejected on entry because of alcohol intoxication. We all accepted this and they went home in an uber.
When i returned to the beer garden i was told to leave because my friends were intoxicated.. so i must be aswell I am having a problem with that because they started drinking hours before me and I dont like being persecuted for association.
I've been drinking at the beergarden for many years and am very offended by the hostile behavior of your security personnel
Yes, I'm an old lady, but does that predict how I will be treated at certain venues??

Thoroughly recommend Surfers Paradise Beer Garden to celebrate an event. Great atmosphere and the service was outstanding. The staff were friendly and very helpful, all of our requests were quickly attended to. We loved the pizzas and CC & Dry on tap, happy customers!

I would call this place an absolute sanctuary. Amazing atmosphere, great cocktails, fun games, and exceptional service. Shout out to my server Kyara who was incredibly attentive and made our experience at SP’s Beergarden the absolute best.
