The food was delicious and good value. The environment wasn't anything special but clean and tidy. The food was quick though the restaurant was nearly empty. I ordered sirloin strip steak on a Wednesday.

We usually have a pleasant experience with staff at the club but today were given a very unpleasant experience when given a roast meal that consisted of some sliced meat with gravy. When we complained the service person and a member of the cooking staff were extremely hostile. Dave McConnachie 16373

Wow....you wouldn't want to be in a hurry. Slow service, inattentive staff. The Chef couldn't keep up with all the orders....when my Chicken Salad finally arrived pleased to say it was good. After eating, the table wasn't cleared even though there were 3 staff members literally doing nothing. However the Chef was labouring away still trying to fulfill lunch orders

I went from a 5 star to a 1 star because I tried to just walk in, and an old fella stopped me saying I needed to sign in. I have no ID on me I just wanted a few beers but apparently it's not that simple so I went somewhere else. Bloody rediculous to have to sign in and carry a wallet just to drink beer in a 33 degrees day!

Nice club but food is terrible. I've only found one dish on the menu that's palatable and that's the Thai beef salad, but really their is not much you can stuff up in this dish.

Not a good experience today. Lunch, the order was steak/veges/chips. I received steak/chip/salad. The steak was so overcooked it wasn't funny. The chef needs to undergo retraining. With very few customers the chef had plenty of time to cook a steak properly. The staff were chatting in the kitchen with dirty tables left unattended. Not impressed. Front desk unattended until I got a bar person to comeover who was unable to help. She went & got a person who did help & updated member cards. The whole experience was very poor & I wont go back. EVER

Staff were lacking in training, took 10 minutes before we could sign in, and only then when a staff member came from the cafe to help. Lunch orders were mixed up, and the rump steak was tough enough to sole shoes. I used to love dining here, but that has changed and I doubt if we will return.

I ordered the rissolles, when they arrived they looked like meat patties and had been deep fried. ? they were not nice. since when do you deep fry rissolles. I was not well for many hours after eating them as I never eat deep fried food as it upsets my stomach.

Since amalgamating with the Wollongong Golf Club, the Ex-Services Club has taken a few hits. It was great to see it on Anzac Day, where the place was bustling with Two Up; music; and food options from His Boy Elroy. I think the members are hopeful this place can turn a corner and be more inviting in the future.

We bought 5 meals, all plates were delicious and heartily consumed. All was washed down with a delightful array of beverages including our bottle of cab sauv!

Great high quality meals at outstanding prices.. Surprisingly quiet for a Saturday... Hidden gem

Schnitzel and chips really requires the chips to be warmish and gravy to taste of more than water. And how do you burn a burger? And it's kind of a good idea not to stick your finger in a quarter full glass of wine before asking if it's finished.

Don't try the Luna New Year Meal. Totally lower the bottom line of Wollongong restaurants.

Kitchen doesn't open till 5pm, don't trust the website which says it's open all day. Menu looks basic but perhaps it's good, don't know didn't get a chance to try.

It was nice and quiet in here. Seats were comfy. We just ordered a simple Margherita pizza, garlic bread and a drink. Well, the garlic bread was nice, but the pizza was beautiful! Just a simple combo and not even real tomato, just paste, but it tasted divine. Just what we needed for lunch. Price was reasonable, too. Will definitely go back again.

Ordered and paid for food, waited patiently for more than 45 minutes. Noticed staff appeared to be closing the kitchen. Went over and asked would our food be much longer? Staff member said,oh, didn't you get your food?
Oh, our kitchen has closed. Chef kindly offered to cook Parmas which was all he could do. As I'm celiac I can't eat those. He apologised to me, not his fault though. Waitress assured me she had put our order through correctly. Chef didn't receive a meal ticket, so it wasn't cooked. I was livid by now. Then I had to stand around and wait for several minutes for a refund to be organised. I expected a lot better from an RSL. Manager didn't bother to applogise at all. Left it to the chef to deal with. I'm sure if the chef was managing, the place would run a lot smoother. Kids and I left hungry and very angry. Didn't even finish our drinks I was too angry to stay any longer.

Thoroughly enjoyed City Diggers. Lovely staff, really yummy food, great food choices and prices?.

Although, the only thing that disappointed us, was the Cafe. We could only get a cup of tea or coffee, not even a cake to choose from. ?

Amazing service. I was served by a lovely young man named Kane and he made sure I always had a drink by my side. Definitely returning

We were a group of five and we all thoroughly enjoyed our "high tea" experience.
It's very good value - a glass of bubbly, a hot drink and loads of food all for $20.
The tables were well set out and it was lovely to have linen serviettes.

We drove from Sydney to there, ordered 2 barramundi with veg and chips. Chips arrived in 45 minutes fish was still to be cooked. I cancelled my order, very disappointed they take your order and forget about it. Very inexperienced chefs I noticed. One star for your apology .

Since this club amalgamated with the golf club the amenities have deteriorated! For two weeks one of the upstairs female toilets have not been repaired nor the sanitiser in the some areas in filled over two weeks. Is this a club in run down mode and concerningly not supporting Covid safety? So sad it used to be cutting edge.

I have noticed a definite change in the menu and I'm afraid it falls short of what the bistro use to serve. I commend the staff for friendliness, courtesy and good service. Meals are smaller and some noticeable changes that need fixing: a good mix of gourmet vegetables replaced by plain green peas and some pak choi; french fries have replaced crispy, delicious thick-cut wedges; there is no holding back on the salt or dressing. Customers should be allowed to add their own spices or condiments like salt, pepper or dressing. This should not be done by the chef or chef's hand. This was with baked salmon which was satisfactory but too had changed from fillet to two smaller pieces. Visitors and members come to a club for good food. City Digger's had this reputation but unfortunately something has changed. Please don't fall below the standard you once had.

Staff were wonderful. Very helpful and knowledgeable. But I'm not too happy about the new menu. I didn't know you could call a handful of lettuce salad. Really disappointed. Chips were cooked well though.

Booked on line which was an extremely efficient and streamlined process. All staff were very friendly and the bistro menu was very good and our meals delicious. Definately worth a visit
