Tips from locals

OK, Garwoods is usually crowded and a bit overpriced, BUT it can be a great place to enjoy the lake while having well-prepared food and super drinks. If you can catch the sunset on the deck without too much of a mob, fantastic.

More upscale restaurant right on the waters edge! Garwood's has great food and is known for their "Rum-Runners", which is a frozen cocktail you have to try! Great for couples looking for a romantic evening, or families looking to enjoy a more formal dinner.
