They definitely do a good job with food, given limited surrounding competition. It is very conveniently located along the Sunshine Coast Hwy, if one is returning from a walk out to the Skookumchuck Narrows near Egmont, a 20 drive from the restaurant.

We have lived on the Sunshine Coast for 20 years and Ruby Lake has always been our "go-to" restaurant for both romantic dinners for two and for large friends-and-family celebrations. The food is consistently amazing, it is in a beautiful location, and the staff are great fun. The surroundings include a floating bridge over a lagoon where one can take... More

This unassuming Trattoria surprised us: fresh ingredients, a varied and creative menu and a robust "wood lodge" ambience, including a roaring fire. The menu focus is on game and seafood. Everyone should start with the caprese salad (fresh, beautiful). My buffalo steak came perfectly cooked (a very lean meat, so not easy to achieve), accompanied by a mixed vegetable sautee... More

We have meant to dine at the Ruby Lake Resort Restaurant for many years. We have a cabin only 5 miles away. This particular evening was a beautiful one with a great sunset over Ruby Lake. The restaurant has an outdoor patio that was very full with about 30 guests. We were a party of 5 and were seated inside... More

This restaurant is excellent, and you could well spend a whole day here enjoying the lovely warm lake (we tried stand-up paddle boarding and hired boards next to the restaurant), doing some lakeside yoga (see posters in restaurant), sitting on the lovely sandy beach, watching the wildlife (hummingbirds feeding on a nearby tree, dragonflies hovering over the pond)...

This was a fantastic restaurant to stop it. It had a beautiful location and the deck was perfect for enjoying our lunch. I had the steelhead trout, as recommended by the server, and it was tender and tasty. My husband had the halibut fish and chips, which was also very good, but the portion did seem a little small. Overall,... More

This was a lovely restaurant but I don't get why they have to charge so much for their food. We had lunch and it was like $16.95 for my salad!! Yikes. Too expensive but I guess that's what you do when you're the only restaurant in "town"!
