    Just a friendly, relaxed and hospitable environment. I could hear my wife for a change, so was able to get some answers right to her questions. Great outlook, plenty of room to move and feel safe in these covid times. The staff are a delight, wine list good ,food well presented and tasty. When in Southport we will make the effort to enjoy this experience again. Cheers Terry & Jan Grayson

    We visited the club only 2 weeks ago and returned because the prawn linguine I’d had was amazing only to find they had revamped the menu and no longer available ( old menu still on site) chose the nearest thing which was Crab and Prawn Raviolli ( as I adore seafood) sauce incredibly fishy and ravioli uninteresting I’m afraid, hubby had steak and not impressed either. That being said the oysters we had for our starters were amazing and the panko Calamari very tasty. ambience remained good just disappointed with the mains.

    Did not really stay as we had booked a table way in advance for a particular time. When we arrive we were shown a table near the bar and there were ample empty tables on the deck. When asked to seat on the deck.. was told they were fully booked...Umm yes hello I did book a table 10 days in advance and I was not just a walk in. I think the waiter realised this after he sat us and then showed us to a worst table on the deck. Also being a Sunday.. and Sunday Roast is touted as an evening special... one would have assumed Sunday Roast would have been on the menu At lunch time as well. In any case the menu needs revamping. We did not eat or drink in the establishment and left and went to another restaurant that was more accommodating!!!! Key maybe maître’ d needs to learn not to be arrogant or firstly check that we did have a booking when we had already told him so.

    Meals are very nice and reasonably priced. Service was good to start with and then was a bit slow as it got busier, but it wasn't a big issue. Will definitely go back. Great ambience and view.

    Location was beautiful, had a table overlooking the water. Wait staff were excellent. Unfortunately when we made the booking the menu they attach is not the menu on offer. We were planning on having seafood platters, only to be told that this on the Summer menu, not available until November. Have to say the food was nice but not exceptional.

    As our meal was lunch we were pleased to be able to order two dishes off the entree menu. The seafood chower was a generous entree size it was hot and contained a good selection of seafood and was delicous. My next dish was the pumpkin arancini balls which were also a good choice and my friend had coconut crumbed prawns which she was very pleased with. The dry white bubble we had went well with the arancini balls and crumbed prawns. Overall, a great setting on a lovely day sitting by the water-thank you.

    The SYC has continuously provided a great atmosphere by the engagement of people focussed staff! Their customer service skills and affability are, in my view, well above the standard at similar clubs. Yesterday, after a slight accident off SYC premises, both Jess and Erin were most helpful in ensuring this slight injury was addressed. Additionally, Glenn Stevenson assisted with added bandaids at our table and we relaxed for lunch (phew)! Lunch was great (as usual) and Kiahni provided a friendly face and excellent service (as usual). In my view, the recruitment of staff at the SYC has been extremely successful. My working background in Senior Human Resources/ Industrial Relations roles over 33 years in "People" has given me that knowledge.
