Where To Eat While Visiting Lake Macquarie

Hughzies LakeSide Brasserie

If you're looking for the perfect spot to enjoy breakfast, Hughzies Lakeside Brasserie is it. They're open for breakfast at 7AM Monday-Friday and at 8AM on Saturday. They're breakfast is so good, it has won awards for being the best breakfast in the Hunter Valley.

Hughzies is all about casual dining. It overlooks Lake Macquarie, so you'll have the chance to enjoy a great view (from every table) while you indulge in a delicious breakfast.  We recommend you try the Smoked Salmon Scrambled Eggs. You won't be disappointed! If you've got a sweet tooth, you'll also have to try Hughzies' dark chocolate brûlée with peanut brittle and vanilla bean ice cream. Trust us, it's delicious.

Deck 56 Restaurant

If you're visiting Lake Macquarie for lunch and you're looking for something delicious to eat, you've got to try the oysters at Deck 56 restaurant. All of the oysters served at Deck 56 are locally sourced from Port Stephens, so you know they're super fresh. If you're in the mood for something more filling, try Deck 56's beer battered fish and chips. All of the fish is locally sourced and caught in the lake, so the type of fish they're serving will depend upon the day.

Deck 56 is located in Belmont. It's located right across from the water, so you can enjoy stunning views of Lake Macquarie while you dine on delicious oysters.


If you're looking for some Asian cuisine to enjoy while you're visiting Lake Macquarie, Toronthai can't be beat. Not only is their food delicious, their service is incredible. Located just off The Boulevard in Toronto, Toronthai has a wide selection of Thai cuisine. They also offer a number of menu options that are vegetarian, vegan, and gluten or dairy free. You can eat in on their second floor patio, looking out on Lake Macquarie, or you can take your food away to enjoy a picnic near the water. 

We recommend trying Toronthai's pork belly salad if you're craving something with a little bit of spice. If you're in the mood for a curry, try their jungle curry. Your mouth will thank-you for it.
