Waited for one and a half hours to get our very ordinary meal in a noisy, cafeteria-like environment. Very disappointing and given the price, will never return.

I have been twice to Surf House and both times very disappointing. View are wonderful but food and service below par. There are much better restaurants in Newcastle which give you everything you are after.

My husband and I tried the Surfhouse Beef Burger and they come served with a side of chips. Nice juicy greasy burger - if you're not concerned about the calories. Really great quality burger - one of the better ones I've tried since Grill'd. Good value for money. Great location. Highly recommended for travellers and residents alike.

I had one of the worst meals I've ever had here and paid through the nose. Yes the view is amazing but each of our 7 meals were terrible. Chorizo stuffed squid was tough and the stuffing mixture had a texture that was just so wrong and so tasteless. The pork belly entree was about 5cm long and $20. Are you kidding me. I will not be back.

What a spot! Right on the water in Merewether & we were lucky enough to see whales right out the front, mingling with the surfers! Amazing food, incredible ambiance and the cocktails were pretty good too :) We will be back for sure!

Great experience. My partner and I tried out the Surfhouse when it first opened and thought the menu was a bit limited though food and service was good. We have recently revisited to try out the new menu and it didn't fail to satisfy. The new menu is amazing with a well balanced variety to suit all and service to match. Will definitely be returning very soon. A must for all restaurant goers.

I went to the Surfhouse for dinner with my boyfriend I hadn't heard the best things about the Surfhouse's menu value for money and the quality of meals but I must say that we were very surprised to see that they have changed their menu and the prices seem very reasonable and the food was great. It was a great night and would highly recommend this place to friends and family.

Recently celebrated our anniversary at the Surfhouse bar and grill. We ordered the most expensive meals on the menu ($43 ribeye fillet) and they were barely edibile. My wife and I were devastated by how poorly the meal was cooked and served.
Way over-priced food, poor and limited menu and the staff had little clue as to what the menu actually contained. The dining itself was more akin to a bistro and the table and chairs were circa 1987 David Jones cafe. Couldn't recommend on this outing and can only hope they improve in all areas.

Highly overpriced for what you receive. The food is what you would expect from a pub, Would not have been a problem if you paid for that type of meal but you are paying premium prices and they simply do not deliver. We paid approx $75 for our main meals 1 x salmon and 1 x rib eye steak.
I walked away so disappointed. Until they re price there meals Or completely change the way they prepare and serve their food to suit the prices. I would not recommend this restaurant, Sorry!
