Popped in for a quick lunch and all meals were tasty and pleasantly presented. Unfortunately, the quiche cup arrived a bit cool but it was quickly wisked away and reheated.

Lovely restaurant and people. We ordered the beef burger with slaw. It came without the slaw just a burger on a big plate! It needed the slaw! The burger was nice but a bit on the small side. We probably should have asked for the slaw, maybe they ran out but no explanation was given. Coffee was good but took... More

After a days hike we were famished Andy was recommended that we have dinner at the Lodge Glenorchy. We were NOT disappointed. The staff was professional yet personable and humorous. The meal was excellent and substantial and the ambience lovely. Just what we were looking for!

I went in for a hot chocolate, It was hot but it was very insipid and habitat barely seen any chocolate. I asked what the cakes were and was told the one was walnut and caramel, yes there were plenty of walnuts but it was apple. It was pleasant but the staff should know what grey are selling as there...

This restaurant's sign actually says Bold Peak Lodge (we were thrown off by "The Lodge" as written on TripAdvisor). We are fairly picky about food and many meals we've had in other places in NZ over the past 10 days have been disappointing. At Bold Peak Lodge, we were impressed at the quality and flavor of the food. The crispy... More

A good range to choose from. We ordered the chocolate cake to have with our coffee. We are glad we took up the suggestion from the girl serving us to have the cake heated and with ice cream. Lovely! We found the cost a little more affordable (for what we were looking for) than the other popular cafe in town.

We stopped in here on a drive from Queenstown, to stoke up with lunch before doing a walk in Glenorchy. Two coffees, one of them de-caf, really good. Hot steak and cheese pie, chocolate cookie and ginger cake, all good too. Fast service and plenty of seating. Friendly people running it. Nice place for lunch!

Stopped off for light refreshments after driving out to Glenorchy. This cafe was a pleasant and unexpected find. It also serves as a pub with a separate cafe area with both interior and outdoor seating. The cafe served divine Allpress coffee. My partner enjoyed her English Breakfast tea. A good selection of slices, muffins and scones were available, in addition... More

Popped in here with a friend for a drink and something to eat. We waited for ages to be served whilst a lot of staff moved around behind the counter. The woman on the counter was very slow serving the one person in front of us and no one else or her said 'i'll be with you in a minute'... More

Looking around this small tourist town in mid winter, this place at least looked liked they had some "home prepared " food. It was a good call, with the beetroot soup being delightful. Not expensive, not fancy, but enjoyable.
