Unfortunately, we had a long wait but fortunately the food was terrific and worth the wait. I had trout and it was delicious. There are limited dinner locations and if you stay at this lodge, it is the easiest.

The waitress was very good and unlike many restaurants where we at, this waitress followed up quickly on requests and helped identify gluten free selections on the menu. She was prompt and pleasant. The food was very good.

Not good enough by quite a long way. We waited 45 minutes for a table the first night we stayed and an hour the next night. There's no option for reserving tables for less than 6 people, so you can't plan ahead.The food was OK, the wait staff were good and very friendly and knowledgeable but the experience was ruined...

We stayed at the lodge and so this was pretty much only choice for breakfast. We ate there two mornings. They only offer the breakfast buffet. There is no menu. The food was good, maybe overpriced.

Good food and you can sit outside right on the river. great location and good service for the money. Go early to avoid waiting for an outside table

Only had the breakfast buffet. Food was good for a buffet, service was prompt if a bit slapdash. Didn't like paying extra to have a small glass of juice, which really ought to have been included in the rather pricey breakfast buffet. Oh, coffee in the restaurant was bitter and not very palatable.

Cold salads produced earlier and kept in the fridge. Microwaved main courses. Yuk. A very bad meal. Not much to like here and they close earlier. Unfortunately there are limited options in the park but maybe the cheap fast food type options at Curry Camp would have been better.

We come here for breakfast and to use the Internet. Access costs $5.95 and can be purchased at the Lodge. The password is good for multiple devices and multiple days.

We were staying at the Lodge, so would have appreciated being told about the long waits for a table. All we were told was that reservations were not required. When we got to the Restaurant we were told there was at least a 45 min wait. We waited in the Bar, which had really slow service - even by AUS... More
