    Wonderful first time @ Hobarts. Only food problem, pickerel listed but perch was being served, which was delicious. Hamburger was really good & cooked exactly the way I like it. Servers courteous & fun. Have already recommended to 3 different people. Will definitely be back in the future. Great location for a special occasion Look forward to my next meal @ Hobarts Thankyou

    I made a reservation over a week before we arrived for a table on the enclosed patio. We were sat inside and told that’s all they had available at the moment. Diners that arrived after us were initially sat inside and when a table became available outside they were moved. We were never given the option to move even though our food hadn’t arrived yet.

    It was really mediocre, hence the 3 out of 5 stars. The location was definitely worth the drive but we likely wouldn’t return. Food was OK (pasta with chicken and chicken was half of a breast but pink inside so I left most of it). Service was also so - so. Not a super friendly server and it wasn’t overly busy so wasn’t because she was rushed. A place to experience but don’t expect much more than ambiance.

    While some menu items can be a little more on the expensive side, most options are priced fairly. Portions were average and manageable; no expectation of a packing up leftovers. Presentation scores above average. Being dockside was noisy and distracting at times, but only briefly - you should expect this as a side effect of being in a high-traffic, high-energy spot. Combine the exceptionally well-mannered, helpful, and flexible staff with the great view of the water, and you're in for a great night out.

    Well worth the drive. Great ambience with a breathtaking view of the lake. The menu has something to appeal to everyone. In my opinion, the rib-eyes are the best in the province. The service is friendly, professional, and prompt. A good wine list. We’ll be back.

    It was ok ,pretty spot patio is fully inclosed, asked for a table with a bit better view and was told it wasn’t possible so the table I asked for sat empty our entire meal and was still empty when we left lol so that was unnecessary. Waitress barley checked on us except to bring the food,energy in the whole place seemed off wouldn’t be worth a second visit as it was a far drive

    The overall experience was incredible. We sat outside so the view was amazing. Our waitress was very nice. The best service we have received in a long time. Food was delicious, we couldn’t get over how great it was. I had the chicken parm and my bf had the steak. The music was great. Overall, I would definitely come here again. It was the best experience we could have hoped for.

    Fantastic spot to stop in for a cold beverage and a quick nibble, or a romantic night out to watch the sunset on Stoney Lake. Their burgers are awesome, with some unique topping combo’s.Their salads are so fresh, and the steak melted in my mouth.

    We enjoyed our anniversary last night in the light house! We had Bellini’s and they were wow, delicious. Highly recommend! We enjoyed Cajun shrimp salad. My husband had the Chicken Parmigiana and it did not disappoint! I had the chicken curry with rice and fresh veggies it was perfect, so tasty and on the light side! Loved it and will definitely go back! Thanks to Hobarts for the cheese cake we will enjoy tonight.

    This is one of our favorites restaurant to eat at due to its patio choices. It has an amazing view, excellent foot, great service and you can either drive or boat to get there. My only advise to add is to install an awning on the patio where it gets very hot in the afternoon.

    Servers were absolutely excellent. Great food cooked exactly as described and of course view is spectacular. Very prompt service without feeling rushed. I felt very comfortable with the restaurant’s COVID protocol. Servers deserve award for putting up with entitled customers thinking they should get one particular table despite it being reserved. These clients were all handled very professionally in a non confrontational way. Look forward to my next visit.

    Parking is a nightmare…on a steep slope and not enough for paying customers at the actual restaurant For a steakhouse the atmosphere is very relaxed…waitresses in shorts or jeans? But then again so are customers Food was amazing…was hoping for more upper scale dinning! Has potential to be with the prices on the menu. Would go again but not to celebrate an anniversary where you want to dress up and look your best!

    We went for a early supper to beat the rush. The service was fast and friendly and the food was great. We had burgers, beef dip and chicken wrap. All were fairly priced and very good! If you have a boat on Clear or Stoney Lake I'd recommend going by boat, it's a fun unique way to travel to a nice restaurant.
