    Food was great, but even better than that was the very funny guy who welcomed us and looked after us for the time we were there! He created a fun atmosphere for everyone! Food also delicious! Will head back soon!!

    Beautiful location, staff were amiable and attentive and provided complimentary coffeeA while we waited for our food (we were more than happy to soak in the view and we weren’t waiting long at all!). I can’t provide a full 10/10 review as I didn’t eat, however I will definitely be back to do so. Thank you for a gorgeous morning!

    The lobsters were overcooked and just warm, they were served within minutes of us finishing our entree the potatoes were served without the aioli and Parmesan etc. the sticky date desserts were the the star. We have many family and friends in the area are are always looking for a restaurant where we can meet, this place won’t be on our list. Other venues at the Entrance have been much better and we will return to these in future

    Wow I found my favourite local cafe! We really enjoyed weekend breakies, good coffee, delicious dishes with flesh ingredients and nice presentation. Service was amazing, polite friendly and made us laugh with a bit of joke. It’s heritage building with water view, good atmosphere. Definitely recommend!

    From the minute you step in the door, the staff were friendly and nice. The food was amazing and the house beer was nice too. Will definitely eat there again.

    We had a wonderful experience celebrating a birthday while visiting the area. Can't say enough good things about the service, from start to finish. And the food was excellent - there was not a single dish that disappointed. Will definitely head there again.

    A great find as a place between Sydney and Newcastle for a family catch up. Very friendly service and good fresh food covering steak, fish and duck. Very tasty prawns as a starter and a desert. All reasonably priced. If in the area would go again.

    The restaurant was great BUT the booking I made via The Fork was not registered at the restaurant, and we were lucky to be able to be seated. This does not seem to be the first time occurrence of this problem at this restaurant.

    The food was high quality and ample. Staff helpful and attentive to our every need. The lakes location has great views of Tuggerah Lake. There's inside and outside seating for you to choose.

    The Lake House has become one of our favorite places. This morning we went for breakfast but have also had both lunch and dinner here and not been disappointed. We are always warmly welcomed and feel a bit like family. Great food and especially good coffee. The view and sitting by the water is very relaxing. Worth a visit.

    The food was fantastic. Fresh, delicious, and beautifully presented. We had a feeling the entire time that all the staff genuinely cared about us and our experience.

    We paid with cash, and were expecting some change, although none came, they just assumed we were leaving a generous tip! Next time paying with debit card so we can decide the amount of the tip, if any!

    Im very sorry to hear you did not get your change, their must have been some misunderstanding or oversight as we always give back change. We hope your lunch was good.

    The service and food was fabulous, the views and weather beautiful. Spacious interior, clean toilets and a great outdoor area for eating and or children to run around in.

    Although we had a booking the few (one?) staff were overwhelmed by a group of women attending some sort of event so we didn't bother to stay. Noisy, drunken people on the street out the front (not violent, just loud and annoying). So we looked through The Entrance and Long Jetty - not much on offer on a Friday night but chanced on Hernando's Hideaway who served a very tasty / spicy range of tapas.

    Hi David, your table was available upstairs in a private dining space. We are sorry you did not ask so we could seat you. We do run functions and events from time to time to keep the business alive. Giving us 0 without experiencing the restaurant is rather harsh.

    The food was reasonable. The flathead was enjoyable and value for money, The ribs were disappointing lacked a nice glaze and flavour. The entrée was poor value. Three scollops for $18 was pricey. However overall our group enjoyed the service and meals.
