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!

    Another wonderful lunch at "The Boardwalk" We were seated in an outdoor area this time and so that added to the overall dining experience. The food was fresh and tasted amazing and served in a prompt time. Covid safe distancing was practiced and the check in point meant only one entry and exit. We also loved our waiting staff they were immediately so welcoming and made sure our day went smoothly. Also the coffee was a great way to end our visit.

    A wonderful dining experience at The Boardwalk. The menu was diverse and we really appreciated all the vegan choices. Our meal was delicious and served in a timely manner. All the extras like great coffee and beverages completed a great day out. Our waitress for the day was friendly and energetic and looked after us from the moment we arrived. We look forward to visiting again soon.

    There were 4 of us we were accomodated as best they could at the time because of the 10 seat polmade sure the blinds were downicy inside due to Covid. The waiter who I think was the head waiter may have been Irish or Engish Im not sure but he was so accomodating making sure we were comfortable at every stage as we were sitting in the annex made sure the blinds were down checking on us every now and again to make sure we were warm enough. Overall a very good experience Thankyou!
