Belmont 16 footers: "Welcome to club land" Lake Macquarie Restaurant Tip by iandsmith

Lake Macquarie Restaurants: 3 reviews and 1 photos

In Australia, a club means basically a hotel style place with a gaming licence. This has allowed the larger turnover clubs to look nothing like a hotel but support their restaurants and food outlets with poker machine money.
This club gets its name from a type of sailing craft, i.e., a 16 foot length boat but, what makes them amazing is the unlimited sail potential. These open boat really fly along the surface of the water and, if the wind is up, they look spectacular.
The one thing that this club has that is a huge plus is its location, right over the lake. Where you eat is actually situated on piers over the water; lovely views thus ensue.

Favorite Dish: The bistro is where most people head and I have to say the food is of reasonable quality but somehow I can never get quite excited about it.
It's certainly clean and wholesome but tends to lack a little imagination.
If you're looking for a reasonably priced meal though, you could certainly do a lot worse than eat here.
I like their seafodd dishes, particularly the ones that they have on special.
