    4 star review  Tonight for dinner. Less of a review more of a supportive comment. While can't guarantee it table next to us sent meal back as 'not cooked .... one meal salmon? Staff redid it. Same complaint. Handled perfectly by staff .... huge congratulations to both wait staff .... eventually .... having eaten a large amount of both meals customers accepted a refund. Mmm. Our meals cooked to perfection, precisely as ordered, served with smiles. Afterwards I had to reassure chef and kitchen staff and waitress of our total satisfaction with food and service.

  • 4 star review  Had a nice meal with an awesome view over lake Macquarie. Good tap beer and not a venue that is dominated by gaming lounge like so many unfortunately are. That's not saying they don't have one, they do. It's just not their draw card. Friendly and funny staff.

    5 star review  The Gunyah Hotel is one of my favourite places to visit. Food service was quick and staff friendly. My husband and I shared 4 light meals which were divine. I would recommend Hungerford Chardonnay with your meal and the courtesy bus.

    5 star review  Lovely meal... Schnitzel with Gunyah topper... Small one was more than I could finish... Yum. Very busy, and that's just awesome... Noisy, but what the heck. Recommend booking for lunch just in case you hit a busy day.
