In this area you do not expect to be served frozen packet fish! Very disappointing! The sunset was incredible, courtesy bus great, but don't eat in the bistro!

Two families were disappointed with the dining experience at The Recky.
We went for dinner on ANZAC Day. It was very busy and I feel the kitchen staff were over whelmed by the amount of people wanting meals.
I would love to say otherwise, but the meals were poor.
After a 45 minute wait, the pork chops were cold and uninviting sitting on a bed of mash (ordered fries and salad - "sign is wrong" when queried. A bowl of salad and fries was brought to us later)
Nachos was burnt.
The atmosphere was noisy and that of a canteen with plastic chairs, hard floors and rickety tables.
This is in stark contrast to the awesome view from the balcony of the setting sun over the lake.
I will certainly be going back to the Recky but will carefully consider dining there again.

Stopped in to have dinner on a family holiday. After waiting an hour in line just to order we were told that they had run out of oysters, chicken schnitzel and chicken parmigiana. The lady taking orders continuously walked away from the register after 2 orders. We were then very rudely told there would be a further 1 hour wait for our meals. When we finally got our meals none of the mains were even close to similar in size, was cold and tasted like it had been sitting under a warmer all night. When we went to speak with the front of house staff about a particularly small meal, the lady turned to us pulled a face and turned her back. After asking her not to ignore us she replied "I am busy with other stuff" at this point the cheif yelled from the back "Give him a refund and get him out". We left hungry and very disappointed. The rocky was recommended to us but we will never recommend the Rocky!!!!! Absolutely terrible service and food. So very shocking.

We stopped twice to have a few quiet drinks. The first day was a Sunday and it was VERY busy. Lots of people out on the grass outside, there was music on the balcony and the weather was amazing.
Monday was much quieter, obviously lots of locals catching up but nothing like the day before.
It was quite expensive, and the staff weren’t the friendliest but it’s a nice club as far as atmosphere is concerned.
Previous times we have been we played pool but the pool cues were available these few times which was a bummer.

Hi Sherry,

Glad you enjoyed the atmosphere!

We still do have pool cues but they are kept behind the bar to prevent breakages until someone would like to play.
Sorry you missed out!

Hope to see you again in the future.

Thanks,
From the Recky Staff.

Visited the Recky for a few drinks after a funeral in the afternoon, and the garden area was perfect for us all to sit and chat, with shade by the trees and beautiful views of the lake. There's even the ability to fish off the jetty.

The friendly safety were great with a good variety of beers/cider on tap and by the can/bottle. There is a games area for the kids, a bistro if you would like a meal, and pokies too if that tickles your fancy. You can also purchase alcohol to takeaway, which was handy.

A lovely place with fantastic views, perfect for a relaxed drink or meal
