The fishing boats are parked right beside the restaurant and the fish is that fresh. Oysters make a good start, then get one of the fish specials. They cook things simply and expertly, and surround the fish with tasty things that enhance rather than overpower it. No bogging everything down with mounds of chips. Make a rez as it's busy... More

Food was delicious! Service fabulous, very relaxing atmosphere. Kid friendly which is a bonus for me and my toddler. Every time we visit Lakes we visit this restaurant and it's always been pleasant.

The Ferryman's was recommended by our hotel. So, after checking it out on a late afternoon stroll, we made a booking. We were glad we did, because it was pretty busy. And super-glad we did by the end of the evening, because the food - crispy-skinned whole snapper and double-cooked pork belly in our case - was absolutely first class.... More

With lots of dining options in Lakes Entrance this floating seafood restaurant offers a good selection at reasonable prices. The waitstaff were attentive, friendly and efficient. We chose the seafood platter/grilled and the pan seared salmon. The seafood was all fresh and well prepared and the accompanying salads very tasty. We would certainly come again when back in Lakes Entrance.

We wanted a quick lunch and by chance parked outside this place, seeing it was rated #4 in town we gave it a try. It was pleasant sitting outdoors on the water, evidently we were not at the rubbish bin end, as per other reviews. We only had fish and chips to share, which doesn't really give you much to... More
