This restaurant is situated in a beautiful location and has the potential to be a wonderful experience. I have been there twice and have been disappointed twice.
A good menu but quality of food presented does not live up to menus promise.

Wow! A place that has it all.
Amazing menu, (seafood platter)
and lamb in pastry were to die for.
Decent selection of wines, beers & spirits very helpful young lady on the bar who recommended menu items with wines to match. Whilst we only intended on calling in for a drink we ended up dinning the young lady on the bar was so very helpful by making room for us to dine after a table of customers left ( it was very busy)
will definitely travel back to Paynesville just for the amazing meals and friendly staff. 110% boathouse pizza bar & grill fan.

We were shown to our table very quickly, the service was excellent and the meal (seafood platter) was awesome, If I was going back to Paynesville for any reason I would not hesitate to go back there for a meal.

A really nice menu selection, with something for most tastes. The seafood platter was sensational, and the steak perfectly cooked to order. There's a good choice of wines - I was surprised they didn't have any Gippsland wine on the menu, but they did have some in stock when asked. Most tables have a good view out over the lake - yes, it is across the road with a car park in front, but there was still plenty of view. Prices on par with what you get in these regional towns which rely on summer to get enough income for the year - not cheap, but I thought good value for money.
