We came here because it was recommended by friends and we were very disappointed. Two of us had the special Halibut and it was sad. I sent mine back and the other person ate some just because he was hungry and didn't want to upset anyone. The salads were just ok and the service wasn't much better. The best course... More

Our group of 13 ended up here because it was one of the only restaurants that would take a reservation for 13 people. The sign out front says cuisine unique so I was somewhat concerned. However I found the menu to be varied with many interesting dishes and it truly was a great experience. Everyone loved their food. The service... More

The very nice lady told me they have great outdoor seats ( best seats) but she would have to move my reservation to... More

We've eaten at Wolfdale's many time over the past 15 years and every time it's been great. Food is fresh and seasonal and service is always first class. This is a wonderful place for a special occasion.

I can safely say that our dinner there was the best I've ever had at the Lake. Service was extraordinary, food very good, I had wild boar and my fiend had a pheasant breast. A bit pricey, but well worth it.
