Not great
May 2021
Food was good. Large screens throughout with betting and NRL blaring. Ugh! Over zealous floor staff patrolling. 3 men, unskilled and inexperienced at appropriate Public relations . A sour note was a group member and his wife being left standing while the "courtesy bus" departed with a blokes holding slabs of beer. Inappropriate especially when the senior manager condoned this action.

Such a shame!
Jan 2021
As long time regular summer visitors to both Gerringong and the Bowling Club we as usual very much looked forward to our visits. We dined weekly for the two weeks previous to what I would have rated good meals with some somewhat adventurous dishes for a bowling club bistro. For example the salmon ceviche' nachos was really quite good.

It is disappointing that I have to detail what we experienced on our next visit on a Tuesday at 5.30pm (Not exactly a busy service period).
We were a large group and keen to first feed the children, The order for 3 portions of chicken tenders and chips and one of the kids chicken quesadilla no BBQ sauce (A mere squiggle on the top) was met with a polite waitress explaining she had just been advised that changes were not being accepted. I must have looked a bit bemused she offered to check with the kitchen, she returned with a sorry we can't???? I explained my disappointment, stressed that I understood it was beyond her control and ordered chips, my son had this dish the week before picked the inside out and left the sauce drizzled wrap explaining the sauce was 'Yucky" he is 3 for reference, fair enough I would order it without, or so I thought

The matter was not done, the kitchen promptly had the chicken tenders dished up, they were pre cooked, yet still the ability to hold a squiggle of sauce was not an option?? The wait staff were exceptional in how they dealt with us as patrons, the head waitress came to apologise that due to the busy service it just was not an option, I explained that I was both disappointed and confused given the time, day and the place being relatively empty . I was further bemused and frustrated at this point many staff had wasted much time and really soured the experience for us and our group.
Long story short, Tuesday first orders and a kids meal without sauce should be something that a family friendly establishment should be able to assist with, I wasn't having fish and chips crumbed not battered, salad not chips and by the way I cant eat tomato tomato was I ??

We will be frequenting other local eateries on future visits when having our group dinners.

Such an unfortunate conclusion to what should have been another great trip to the 'Bowlo'.

Great meal!

Fabulous dinner! We both had the seared salmon and it was cooked to perfection. With potato rosti, and roast fennel, it was one of the best meals we’ve had for ages!

Disapointing
Oct 2020
A little disappointing, meals are not consistent, kitchen quality always varies, have been there a few times.
Tables were dirty, had not been cleaned, we thought that COVID required cleaning of tables as soon as customers leave, and before next customer, but, it was lunch time and it was obvious tables were dirty from the night before!
Children are allowed to run wild, they should be away from the main dining area to give adults without children a peaceful meal.

Average and expensive
Aug 2020 • Friends
The food was so average I don't really understand how someone in the kitchen is happy to send it out. I wouldn't even write this review if the prices of the meals were around $16 but they charge $24+ for mains that are real average. Ps don't get the nachos they use cheese sauce

Fabulous meals
Jan 2020 • Family
Excellent meal

We luckily made a table booking as the place was packed out - maybe as Sunday raffle, holiday period, evacuations from the fires etc .. or just great food

All meals were enjoyed on our table of 8 family members - from Sweden :)
