Crusoe’s on the Lake, which you’ll find in the Lake Macquarie Yacht Club at Belmont, has taken full advantage of their lake location. The massive deck space is built for long lunching or afternoon sessions so you can take in the sunset over Lake Macquarie.
With the restaurant facing directly out onto the marina, there’s plenty of boating action to keep you entertained. With an extensive menu that covers all the classics like; burgers, schnitzels and smoked buffalo wings to 5 spiced duck breast and braised pork shanks, the serves are more than generous and there’s something for all tastes.
As you would expect, there’s also plenty of seafood selections like the seared scallops and pan seared ocean trout, Italian mussel and clam spaghetti, and that Seafood Platter!
The Crusoe’s Seafood Platter has got itself a reputation for being pretty awesome. The platter of blue swimmer crabs, bugs, fresh king prawns, oysters, steamed mussels and clams, also sit alongside another platter of battered seasonal fish, panko prawns, chilli salt and pepper squid and fresh seasonal fruit. It’s big, and perfect if there’s a few of you wanting to share.
Whether you come by car, boat or otherwise, Crusoe’s on the Lake makes for an ideal dining destination.
