Average food. Average service. Average atmosphere. I had a chicken Kiev, it was obviously bought in frozen. It certainly wasn't homemade quality. My dessert tasted stale and dry. Not impressed at all.

I am a RSL service member and was disappointed with food quality and prices .The food was sub standard and overpriced. I wonder why we went through all the trouble of our country's in the past.!!!

RSL interior is a step back in time, needs some love. Make sure you book or you will struggle to get a table

Had the all you can eat buffet on Monday 8/12/14, very disappointed. The garlic bread looked liked it had been re-heated from the night before and some of the food especially the southern fried chicken and the spar ribs was over cooked and all looked re-heated. On the positive side the prawns and mussells were good as was the roast... More

Have eaten here for several years on our vacations...food is still ordinary and lacks taste..some spice and salt will help...portion sizes have declined and the eating area is noisy...no idea how to cook asian and the Aussie meals are meat and veg with chips..the free tea/coffee is a plus but this area is usually not cleaned often

Unfortunately the fried Western dishes are a tad "gluggy" and didn't suit our tastes however, in saying that the Asian dishes are well portioned, flavoursome and varied.

Service was great and the meals were huge. The premises were neat and tidy and the white tablecloths reflected the staff's attention to detail. When one charges the meal to one's credit card one can't also charge your drinks to the credit card. Drinks and meals are treated separately. This means two transactions.

Great choice of Australian or Chinese food, we have eaten here many times now & have always had a great meal at a reasonable price. The deserts are all a huge serving, we couldn't fit desert in after our tea so went back the next day for afternoon tea.

We ate here several times during our long weekend. We loved our first meal and all after it. Soft drinks are a different matter, no where in Lakes could we get a lemon lime and bitters that was any good, nor was the lemon squash, they don't seem to add the flavour to the soda for some reason.
