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.

Dined with another couple on Saturday evening. Nice ambience. Good choice of meals on the menu. Two of us had the porterhouse steak. Very tasty but unfortunately the steaks and chips were only warm at best. Chips seemed to have been cooked earlier and left under the light until required. They certainly weren't crisp and fresh. The meals must get dished up at the kitchen then left for a good ten minutes before being presented to the table. This has happened here before. Don't know why. Understaffed perhaps. Poor communication and timing. Have had a good hot fresh meal here in years gone by, but not on recent visits unfortunately.

We stay at Tallebudgera Tourist Park every year and always go to the Surf Club in which we are also members. Some times the meals are ok and sometimes you will send back the meal because they have not been cooked properly. It is a bit of hit and miss. But this year they have changed there menu and it is a lot better

Joanne, thank you for taking the time to leave us a review and joining us each year on your holiday. The Club is under new management, with a new head chef, which is probably why you have noticed an improvement in what the Club has to offer. It's great to hear this feedback and we look forward to welcoming you back on your next trip!

I had lunch at the surfclub yesterday at midday. The beach atmosphere and restaurant setting was sensational. I chose from the bistro menu the Wagnu Beef Burger and it was delivered to my table promptly and it appeared exactly as described on the menu. However I believe if I am paying $22.90 for a Burger I should expect a bun that is fresh and toasting does not disguise a roll that has been in a refrigerator or possibly a freezer for possibly a few days. As no staff member asked me if I enjoyed my meal, I feel I had to make a comment here. The staff were doing a great job in clearing wiping and resseting but werent taking the time for a small amount of public relations, which would have avoide a public commen by myself. .... I hope this comment is of some help. Especially as I intend to return..

We appreciate you taking the time to leave us your valuable feedback and we will address the issues you have raised. We are just getting our staffing capacity back but we'd expect the team to still make time to do meal check backs with our diners, so we apologise this did not occur. We do hope you will visit us again as we would love to show you our usual high standards.

Firstly.. this surf club is in such a great location! As a local I wish I could leave 5 stars but sadly that is not the case. "Most" of the staff are friendly.. unless you challenge them on why the price of a vodka lime and soda is 40 cents more expensive 20 minutes later.. and NO! It wasn't happy hour! $7.50 then $7.90.. which is "members prices".. somewhat steep compared to other local clubs.. for example $7.10 at Tugun for the same drink. That aside.. if you are coming to enjoy the amazing new balcony on a Monday or Thursday evening.. don't bother. With kids movies blaring on a Monday barely able to keep a conversation.. expect far worse on "trivia" night on a Thursday.. Seems it is "put up or shut up" if you aren't here for trivia. Myself and our whole table who went for a nice meal left without bothering to spend our money here as it was far from enjoyable. Such a shame given this is my local only 200m from home. 100% to the cute nippers who belong to the "surf lifesaving" side of this club.. beautiful to see them so enthusiastic selling the meat tray tickets 👍

Aisha, thank you for taking the time to leave a review. As a community club, we do have a number of activities happening during the week, so we do apologise if it gets a bit noisy at times! It is strange that you were charged different prices for your drink. We would love to get more details from you if you could call the Club on (07) 5576 4415 and ask to speak to the General Manager?

Havn’t been here for years. What a change. New lift, foyer and glass enclosed open dining area overlooking well used playground and dunes. My partner’s nachos were uniquely presented, not the usual pile of crisps, cheese etc. lovely, as was the salmon on toast. Both served quickly and hot, by friendly and helpful staff. We’ll be back.

Visited the Club for the first time while Vanning at the Tourist Park. Club is beautifully presented and staff are friendly. Big menu and food was tasty and prompt, more importantly the beer was cold. The view is amazing. Will be back for sure.

A modern surf club bistro with great food, views & service 🏆 We love dining at this awesome venue every time we holiday at the Tallebudgera Tourist Park, opposite. The meals are generously portioned, always fresh and well presented. The staff are wonderful and the prices, very reasonable. There are dining specials on week nights and kids are always welcome. Highly recommended to anyone looking for an enjoyable meal with a beautiful view over Tallebudgera Beach 🏖

Absolutely terrible food . Who ever is in charge of the restaurant needs replacing. Ordered Nachos, corn chips burnt & who puts sweet chilli sauce on the top, they do, completely inedible. Second meal, Karaage chicken, 5 small pieces of chicken thigh, coated in an over salted batter with a bowl of gluggy rice & supposed Asian salad of carrot & cabbage & no dressing. This wasn’t a 1 off experience, have had a few meals there, to give the benefit of doubt but all have been poor. Will not be back for food. Bar service, certain staff look at you as if do I really have to serve you & just walk straight past you , other bar staff fantastic As a local it’s a shame as the Club is in great spot & with some great staff & good member discounts.

We met another couple for lunch here. Parking was a bit tight, but we found a space. The venue is quite large and spread out, which is great in these COVID times, and also allowed us to sit and chat for a couple of hours over a meal and coffee and cake. All our meals were very good, but our friends did say their octopus was a tiny bit tough. My calamari was delicious. Coffee and cake were good too. We would go back here. Service is pleasant, food was reasonable,there was no rush to move us out, the view was ok, and it was quiet enough to hear our own conversation.

So you know how when you usually go to the surf clubs and it's over priced ordinary pub food, well strap in cos my friends and I were very pleasantly surprised. Firstly the serving are generous so go hungry, second had the octopus salad perfectly cooked, friend had the calamari NOT over cooked or chewy and my partner had the steak, yum. Thank you chef, cudos to you.

As local Gold Coasters we took our visitors from country NSW to Club Tally last Wednesday night and we all had the seafood platter. All the food on the platter was fantastic, all seafood was really fresh. This is only our second visit to the club but we are quickly becoming regulars to the bistro.

Ordered meal for 4 people, however, only 2 meals arrived. Took another hour before next 2 meals arrived, staff just kept saying that they will be coming soon but never arrived. Eventually arrived, couldn't even slice the signature duck - so tuff. Also order the signature fish - all salad and chips and not much fish for the money. Staff did refund money. Will have to watch what we order next time.

The restaurant had the worst hamburgers we have ever had at a club. No salad, dry patties and cheap cheese slices, all with a small portion of chips for around $25. Pasta was a bit better but way below expectations. No-one in our large group enjoyed their meal. Even the nice staff isn't enough to get us to return.

Dinner, Wednesday night, Ordered Porterhouse steak (medium), nice piece of steak but obviously the cook (won’t say chef) knows how to cook steak, first piece blue not even rare, sent back, second piece cooked well done on one side & rare on the other. Ate the chips & salad. Partner ordered veggies with her meal, runny mashed potato, 2 slithers of carrot, 1 tiny piece of broccoli & a small piece of corn. Seems when certain cooks are working the meals are very ordinary. Have had good steaks well cooked & tender but is hit & miss & depending on who’s working. Service good.

I have raved about this place over the years. This weekend, we had a terrible experience. The club is undergoing renovations, however no excuse for the over priced less the mediocre food and drinks served up Friday night. The club was empty, so I'm assuming the locals are aware. The staff didn't make up for the experience either. I'd stay clear until the renos are done around September 24... and even then I hope they revert to the previous high standard.
