Arrived in our motorhome; checked into the campground & headed to the restaurant to make a reservation for dinner. We were very happy we had a reservation as it was Father's Day & the restaurant was quite full. Our waiter Richard was fabulous with great recommendations. We started with a very good Merlot wine from the Okanagan & very delicate crab cakes to share & homemade bread. We then proceeded to our main course - the sirloin steak tips with a great sauce and the trout which was exquisite.
Next came dessert....... The selection was wonderful & we couldn't decide, so.......we asked Richard to choose and he didn't fail. The plate he brought us had two pieces of freshly made zucchini cake, two profiteroles & ice cream!
This restaurant is truly a gem ........an unexpected oasis. We hadn't expected fine dining as we were on a road trip out in the country. What a wonderful surprise .....& thank you Richard for making it even better!

Although not inexpensive, the food here was very, very good, with a lot of wonderful dishes to choose from. Service was excellent. It was not at all busy, but can imagine that it would be during the summer, when the whole area will be. Well worth the $$! And our accommodations were right across the Lake (The Lakehouse), so we could take our canoe back, after dinner. Would love to return!

A very nice outdoor dining experience. The food is always delicious and the service friendly. We really miss this establishment during the winter months.
