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.

There aren't a lot of good vegan options in Taupō, so when we found The Social Club we were excited to see they had some great vegan food! They offer vegan fish and chips with vegan tartare sauce, and also vegan fish tacos. both were delicious! They also have a cool astroturf outside area which was nice and relaxing away from the crowd inside. Would highly recommend it!

The service was top notch and the location, near the water, is a plus. We shared two different dishes. I ordered the pork ribs, which were tender and tasteful. My wife ordered a pasta dish with chicken, bacon and mushrooms. I would recommend this restaurant.

Great location and great service from the manager and team but sadly the food not so great. Couscous salad with chicken was cold and chicken not fresh soft and hamburgers average but served with frozen fries. Could have been so much better if salad was warmed and fries were fresh. But the views and service amazing

We went to the Social Club for dinner as a family while staying at the motel it is in. Staff are friendly and inviting. The restaurant itself is a little dated but loved the fire which was on to warm the place. We ordered the Garlic Bread, Chicken Tacos, Fish and Chips, a Kids Cheese Burger and a Kids Fish and Chips. We also ordered a cocktail, a mocktail, a beer and an apple juice for drinks. Drinks were great. Mocktail was a bit overly sweet but other than that the drinks were great. Garlic bread came out a little over toasted on some bits (no biggie), Chicken Tacos were good but could possibly have had a little more flavour or a salsa (or something to add to the tacos if customer was looking for more flavour) accompany the dish. Both kids and main Fish and chips were good. Portions were large and fish cooked very well. Crispy but not burnt and after the meal you weren't left feeling like you just drank a bottle of oil. Kids burger was also great and was gobbles up pretty quickly. The total bill was $133 which I thought was very reasonable for a full family meal with drinks which we all left full and happy. Would definitely return again if I was staying in the motel again but probably wouldn't come here especially to have a meal.

Fantastic service - Jessie was lovely - never had to ask for a drink or service - always going by our table to see if we needed anything. The food - omg - heaven. We had the fish and chips and Lamb with mash and it was amazing.

The food and selection of tap beer and drinks were great. Food was good value went away very full and everything was delicious. Background music was just that ... in the background. Great banter with the lovely lady who served us. Thank you for an enjoyable evening. Sorry I didn't take any photos. Next time

The only star I had given was for the beautiful view. Food was BAD and drink was BAD. We had chicken tacos which was alright, but the steak was really bad. Veggies and steak were both super bland, I can cook better than that.... Mocktail tasted like medicine/cough syrup.... There was only one other table when we arrived at 4:30pm and our reserved table was right next to them. They swore a lot and stared alot.... It was a complete different experience compared to the one in Mt Maunganui. Very disappointed. When the staff asked how was everything, I replied 'it was alright' but there was no follow up whatsoever. Felt like I have wasted $8x for a BAD experience.

Great place—food and service. The restaurant is located one floor above ground level affording great views of the lake. The food is expertly presented and delicious. We went multiple times for dinner and breakfast. Give them a try. You will not be disappointed!

My sister booked us a ‘first table’, 50% off the meals, but I would have happily paid full price. The view over the lake is amazing g, the service was great and the steak I had was possible the best I have had I. A long time. My sister had the same and agreed, my wife and brother-in law Wes not disappointed with their choice of meal either. Well done to the chef!

Was looking forward to dinner after all the great reviews but let down The staff were not very welcoming to start and spent time watching vidoes at the bar, bit blunt to begin with and perked up when the other waitress brought food and the bar got a little busier the manger on the bar perked up . But entrance was hard for us as due to covid there is no accessibility for getting in only two staircases perhaps me being a little irritated by this and lack of help from staff to even open the door up put off the server when we first came in , it felt like it did . Food wasnt great , average tacos but tasty none the less , polenta chips very over cooked on the outside but a good vegan option. but my main wasnt good , i had the lamb , over peppery sauce so hard to eat, mash was grainy and covered in the packaged dried shallots . Sadly despite the great review the food didnt live up to this at all
