We stayed in the hotel but arrived late so after reading the reviews here we tried the restaurant. The dining room, for that is exactly what is was, had tried to make the most of it's corner of the hotel. It was nicely lit, and some nice folky music on - but it couldn't decide if it was retro, modern, upmarket or mid market. The food was very good and the service was excellent. I like to try new places but would likely eat here again.

Because of heavy rain, we decided to eat at the hotel's restaurant. I asked to prepare my sirloin rare, but it was well done. The pork of my partner was dry. We both had the idea that the meat was not sufficiently de-frozen. The Argentinian La Linda red was good. The desert was the best of that nights rather disappointing meal. Next day in town we had much more luck with a tasty lobster.

Went to the Lakeside Grill with another couple and their 5 year old daughter. All the adults had the burgers and they were delicious. There is a kid's menu and the 5 year old enjoyed her mac & cheese.

Parking can be tough. The restaurant is right inside the Chocolate Lake Best Western and if the hotel is busy, the parking is all taken up.

The service was slow, but friendly.

If you get a chance, sit on the patio and enjoy the view of Chocolate Lake, especially on a warm summer's day when the beach is packed.

Good food. Prices are average and food good. The wait staff were terrified. Will definitely return again.

The waitress was excellent- very professional. But the rest of the experience was not as exciting. Our friends were staying there so they went ahead of time to reserve a table for four with a view. They were not warned that a large children's group had booked . They were shown the table and thought it would be great. But when we arrived the table had been given away- as had everything with a view and we were in an uncomfortable booth. One of the benches felt as if it had seen better days- perhaps children jumping up and down. There was another large table of older folk who were having a tough time talking over the noise- so they got louder and louder. It was almost impossible to hear. No one would describe it as a pleasant quiet evening. It got quieter as the groups left but we would have booked for a later time if warned. The food was good - typical hotel/motel type fare. Better than some. Would not go back. The room did not absorb noise well. Had been there in the past before renovations a couple of times and it was much quieter.Families likely enjoy it- but don't go for a quiet evening with friends. You will wish that you had found a quieter place elsewhere.
