Awesome with kids great value always good food and kids love it
Very happy with the result.we were greeted and seated professionally.shown how to use our vouchers to the maximum permitted.huge meals and freshly made.
Great staff to.
We all had the special of the day, pork roast, and thoroughly enjoyed it. The ambience of the club was great. And the staff from the time we entered the front door were friendly, efficient and courteous. We could not have asked for a better dining experience.
The venue is great with some tables overlooking the water. The staff were very efficient & polite, the good was great. It was overall a good experience.
The menu has not changed for ages need a bit more variety
We were running late so booking had to be changed to later time. Staff very accommodating, friendly and welcoming. Food hot & delicious, served promptly.
Partner almost left his wallet & keys behind, but friendly staff spotted them and quickly recalled him to reclaim. Very pleasant evening, well presented and delicious meals of chicken schnitzel with chips & salad, plus prawn dumplings in coconut cream . Very yum!
Will be back for more soon.
The food was overpriced and not very nice. Of five meals we ordered only two were enjoyable. Won't be returning.
First time there for lunch and raffle. Meal and service good. Really enjoyed the entertainer. Hope he is regular.
Typical club food - the battered fish though was obviously out of a packet!
Ettalong Diggers is always a nice place to eat and the staff are amazingly friendly!
Very good quality with very polite staff and service.
Great food at reasonable prices and service was good
Food was lovely, staff friendly and club is a safe place to eat
Just started eating our meal when a large group (approximately 15) arrived to the table next to us, all standing and talking loudly 1 to 2 feet from us, oblivious of us and of social distancing. The Covid Marshall came 15 minutes later and asked them to sit down. Unfortunately this spoilt our lunch with my elderly mother.
I often eat here when in Ettalong. It's a rather large dining area in the Diggers Club. The staff are friendly and the food is usually served reasonably promptly, and in sufficient quantity. It's a bit noisy sometimes and when they have a band playing or club announcements it can get WAY too loud to have a conversation. It's family friendly with an indoors children's playground and a few amusement and vending machines. They also have a covered outdoor eating area with beach views.
I have been going to diggers mainly for lunch , I find the lunch meals very good quality and price.
dined monday 22 feb. We understand how club food works, as it is situated under the mantra, and is quite a large venue we were surprised at the poor standard of the food. there were some lovely staff ( the lady on the till and the young bar person male). it could and should have been so much better as we dined at "the box on the water" the night before and it was fantastic and a similar price
The quality of the food was good but service was extremely poor
Nearly always happy with food choices and quality but staff need to lift their game. Maybe it's because of understaffing...most certainly don't seem interested in making patrons time enjoyable.. I'd recommend for food not for service
Great value tasty food, bar service was a tad slow could've done with an extra staff member. Overall very enjoyable.
Was a lovely day with great air conditioning and good food and drink.
Great RSL type food and good value for money. The staff were friendly and helpful
While it is an RSL the food offering is generous and of good quality and prices are very reasonable.
All 3 of us enjoyed the experience and would go back in the future
Great food and service! We were there as a couple with no kids in the school holidays... so maybe a little bias when we say, kids running around screaming are annoying. Would recommend though for food and staff
I ordered roast of the day the veggies were not cooked to my liking, undercooked potatoes and pumpkin, disappointed.
The tables and chairs were cleaned between each customer and all socially distanced so happy with that.
the games room was cleaned constantly, with signs to tell you which were ok to play.
lots of hand sanitisers available too
Great service and food!!
The staff were super friendly and helpful. The food was delicious. The prices (even for a visitor, not a member) were great. Will definitely visit again, it was lovely out on the balcony and there didn't seem to be a problem with social distancing. Would definitely recommend to friends. In fact going back up the coast again soon and will suggest it to friends I am meeting!! :-)
Dinner on a Monday night - prepare to wait a while. Meals, including kids meals, took about 45 minutes to arrive.
Lovely staff and food. Great Covid precautions in place, with tables very well spaced out. Large serves of food, all freshly prepared.
Can’t wait to go back.
Seating was well organised. Food was very good. definite value for money.
Friendly Staff, Food was good, very nice sitting outside although shame people are allowed to smoke in the outside area.
Ordered food for a table of 6 and it never arrived. The kitchen was then closed and we were offered no compensation.
Some one needs to learn how to make Nachos, to much mint in salad, prawns were ok, garlic bread was good.
Consistently good food and service. It’s always noisy and too bright in there though and it’s all very open and vast
We so enjoyed the special Christmas Trimmings. 🎄 The dinner was lovely with a great variety of vegetables and then topping it off with a light and fruity pudding with custard. Gets you in the Christmas mood.
Friendly staff. Excellent menu. Great table servuce
A first visit - very impressed - will be back at some stage - with family members
Bistro 51 always a nice meal, dinner, raffles, what else could you want
That was my first experience of dining at Ettalong Diggers and I look forward to coming back
