The Sandbar at the Surf life Saving Club provides a beautiful venue to enjoy a quiet drink with friends or a complete bistro meal while checking out unsurpassed views of sand and surf.
The bistro is open seven days a week for lunch (1200-1500) and dinner (1800-2100) and is a big hit for Sunday breakfast/Brunch (0800).
Coffee and cake is available after 1100 daily.

There is a huge range of meals available at reasonable prices.
Choice of:
five Appetisers - $7 to $28 dearest being 12 oysters Kilpatrick.
five Burgers ? all $16 served with accompaniments
three Salads - $16
five Pasta dishes - $19 -24.
At least a dozen Mains from every food group - $21 ? 29
Plus from the grill, a range of steak types and weights (average $26) all served with salad & chips
Seafood Platters are a big hit - cost depending on daily product prices.
The bar serves a good range of draught and bottled beers and a wine list that will not break the bank.
Childrens' meals are available plus vegetarian and gluten-free options.
Plenty of parking near by.

Favorite Dish: My wife and I are pretty set in our ways when we visit for lunch. She has a Coolum Mediterranean style Salad with feta cheese, roasted eggplant & zucchini, olives etc - served with toasted ciabatta bread. He opts for a hamburger with the works - a steal at $16.00 and usually more than I can eat for lunch.

We are talking casual no frill dining here. No white table cloth. Meals are delivered to table after orders are placed & payment made by diners at the service area. Drinks service is at the bar.
However, this does not detract from an enjoyable meal and the gold plated view from nearly every table.

We are not the only visitors enjoying the scene at Sand Bar. In September 2011 it was awarded Restaurant & Catering Queensland's "Best North Coast Family Dining Award".
