“Had high hopes...”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 14, 2014

My husband and I recently had the $58 three course menu each. The entree of pork belly was dripping in oil and incredibly chewy. What was surprising was how sticky the pork was, so much so that it actually got stuck in our teeth. The entrees were cleared from our table with barely a bite taken from them. A main of snapper was uninspiring and bland in taste and the sirloin was full of gristle. The food served was less than average. A home cooked meal would surpass the taste and level of pride taken in producing food.

“Good, even if for only a coffee”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 7, 2014

We have been 2 or 3 times and only had a drink or a snack. The service is warm and friendly. The views over the water from the seats outside are good on a dry day.

This place has a good reputation for casuals and functions

“Really nice but could be a little better”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2014

The decor and atmosphere of the Entrance lake house is great for The Entrance, it is clean and modern and service is pretty good, nice wines. Generally very good, but they just seemed to have a little off night with the meals and the menu was a little uncoordinated.
