Indoors or outdoors dining. Great look of the lake. Any food you order will be good. Large selection of local wines. If you like wines this area is full of wineries.

The food is pub faire well prepared. I've eaten here many times day and evening and they handle the high traffic of summer well with good friendly service. I've been here with just a few people and with large groups. Great summer spot with music some evenings.

We had a family (reunion type) experience here. We spent about 3 hours in this place. We enjoyed a variety of appetizers, a variety of entrees, several different beverages. We enjoyed the comfort of the furniture, the view, the service and the ambiance. We all agreed this is just a wonderful experience and would happily go there again.

Visited on a few occasions during our stay in the Lakeside Casino Hotel. Loved the decor modern, romantic, yet comfortable enough to have a family with older kids to dine. Delightful ambiance, great service, good food! Would recommended to a friend

Drove 20km to get here for dinner. Closed. Checked Website for hours open every day 4:30 to 11:00 pm - not it's not it's closed. Told front desk we'd checked their website - no apology. Poor poor poor. Will never set foot in place again.
