“Great service and food!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 24, 2012

We try to stop in a few times when driving through Summerland and have never been disappointed. Its waterfront view of the lake is lovely! I had the halibut and chips and the fish was fantastic!

“Yummy!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 11, 2012

This used to be Shaunessy's Cove but has been upgraded and worked into the overall experience for the Summerland Resort and Spa. We ate in the Lounge as the Grille was busy with families and we were looking for a romantic Valentine's Day experience. We sat at a small round table in front of the window overlooking the lake. Very pretty but hard to eat from. Next time, I would request a booth. Great local wine list and lots of specialty drinks. We shared the dungeness falafel as an appie. My husband had the brined chicken breast and I had the salmon as a main. Both were excellent! Beautifully presented and locally sourced. A great experience overall.

“Nice setting but the food needs re-vamping”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 5, 2012

We went for brunch and although it wasn't crowded the service was quite slow. My two eggs breakfast was OK, eggs were good but the "roast potatoes" looked like they had been reheated several times and some of them were too hard to eat. If you put your eggs (served in a bowl on the meal plate!) on the two pieces of toast then that didn't leave any toast for the assortment of jams that came with the meal. The sausages were also very greasy and lacked taste.
My husband had the burger and he said it was dreadful. Absolutely no taste, not very attractive to look at and hardly any dressing or salad with it and his string fried chips were also reheated and tasteless.
Probably won't be going back which is a shame as it's a lovely setting but attention to detail is lacking.

“Excellent service, food not bad”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 12, 2012

We had excellent service! We both had the strip loin which was cooked to perfection, but the sides were only ok-the greens were incredibly salty!! Had soft centre chocolate cake, wasn't as good as expected. Nice atmosphere though
