Whether you’re a Sunday breakfast regular, or you’re just stopping for lunch on your way through town, you’ll be sure to leave The Boardwalk Bendigo feeling satisfied, smiling and relaxed. Oh, and did we mentioned that we love dogs? Our resident Labrador, Chino, loves to make friends, so your four-legged pals are more than welcome too! Our renowned lakeside venue is a cool and classy combination of rustic timber decor featuring antique telegraph posts, and polished concrete floors. You and your guests can also kick back and relax outside on the timber decking by the water’s edge of Lake Weeroona. We love it here. So will you!

    Service ok. Food ok. Music too loud and way too much bass. I asked the waiter if we could move to a quieter table or at least turn the music down as we were directly under the speaker. It was difficult to talk to each other - he refused without even asking his manager. I see no reason to return.

    The Boardwalk BendigoResponded on November 16, 2021

    Hi notcomingback Thanks for taking the time to post a review. We're sorry that you didn't enjoy our music. Just for the record: your waiter did ask if he could move you to a quieter table, and you declined this offer.

They were always smiling and welcoming. It made us feel at home. The food was delicious and the cost was reasonable. I will recommend this place to anyone. We are going back soon to visit. Wonderful view too. Thank you for your friendly welcoming.

    Very disappointed in the kids breakfast. We were told by the waitress that meals cannot be altered in any way, and that we can't opt to have no maple syrup on the waffles. Which literally makes no sense. Just don't out it on? It's not like we were asking for waffles to be made without a certian ingredient, which would take more time to make up a new batch etc. We simply asked for them not to pour syrup on top. Nothing else was suitable due to allergies. So we decided to go ahead and order the waffles after being told it would be a small drizzle over the top and wouldn't be very noticeable. When it arrived, the plate was flooded with maple syrup. There was probably more of that than anything else. And my daughter barely ate any of it. Thumbs down on the food. Unfortunately, we probably won't be returning.

    The Boardwalk BendigoResponded on November 9, 2021

    Hi Lauren, We’re sorry you feel that your experience with us wasn’t a positive one. We pride ourselves on providing friendly & efficient customer service, therefore in order for us to serve meals in a timely manner, we aren’t always able to accommodate requests (unless it’s to meet allergy requirements). We do make adjustments to accommodate for allergies, our apologies that this didn't occur when you visited. We will follow up with our team to ensure that we assist with specific sensitivities.
