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.

The club offers great food from perfectly cooked steaks, to delicious seafoods and classic Italian pizzas with good value for money. Whether with friends or family, you can enjoy the awesome views of Matauwhi bay and the occasional music nights.

Hubby & I decided on the fried fresh oysters ($40) which we shared that were the BEST we've ever eaten anywhere!!! Steak fries were great as well. Food is very pricey in Russell! Bartenders were very friendly, casual relaxed atmosphere & tap beer in cold...mugs, tasty! The balcony sitting was PERFECT 4 sunset!More

This venue was recommended to us so we popped in late afternoon to check it out, very friendly reception. Quirky little clubhouse in stunning surroundings, ceiling festooned with flags in keeping with the general atmosphere. Returned later to eat fish and chips, lights hanging outside...around the jetty, a warm fire roaring inside and locals sitting around chatting. The service at the bar was not so friendly unfortunately, but the commodore made up for this by introducing himself and spending some time chatting to us. Good tasty food and very pleasant evening. Definitely recommend!More
