Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

I had heard from a friend that the Toronto Hotel was good for a Sunday Lunch as they had weekend specials so our family of 7 decided to give it a go. The views of Lake Macquarie from the balcony are great. We arrived about 12:30 to find many of the outside tables taken or reserved but managed to find one on the balcony at the front of the hotel. There was a jumping castle which my 3 kids enjoyed. The Lunch menu is extensive with specials being $15 on weekends. We ordered 3 kids meals at $10 each that came with a juice popper, meal and paddle pop. We also ordered the chicken schnitzel, flathead fillets and beef bacon & cheese burger. The muni does state that waiting times can be long when busy as the food is cooked fresh. The kids meals arrived after 30 minutes and even had salad on the side of the Nuggets and chips. The adult meals arrived a further 45 minutes later. The meals were well presented and hot. A large well cooked schnitzel, salad and chips and the garlic sauce on the side was delicious. There were 3 flathead fillets supplied. The patty on the burger was tasty. So $90 for meals for 4 adults and 3 kids for a relaxed Sunday lunch with entertainment for the kids and a great view and surroundings the Toronto Hotel was an enjoyable surprise.

Our family went here for a mid week lunch. Staff were reasonably friendly, all meals arrived within half an hour of ordering and were quite generous for the price. View of the lake was lovely from the verandah. Please consider painting the rusty chairs outside to make it a bit more modern and appealing and making the main entrance a bit more user friendly. We will be back. :)

Arrived to see a good Aussie band. Area isn't bad, not bad for a W'end afternoon. Sadly with everything going for this place, food is horrible, dry and you could do better at a local takeaway. Feed up before you get here and beer was cold and its a good spot for entertaining. Just let down by any chance of good food.

While food was ok, nothing to get excited about. We (6 people) ordered at 6.55pm straight forward things, at 8.10 we were told it may take another 10 minutes. After asking the licencee we did receive our meals at just after 8.20pm. I understand things can happen orders go astray. The lack of concern from the owner/licensee was truly was amazing. No explanation or even a sorry. Not any approach. There are many other options in town.

Stumbled on this beauty. Fabulous atmosphere with the live music, but not so loud that you coukdnt talk. We sat inside and it was very busy. We were told our meals would be an hour wait, but that the kids meals would come out quicker. The kids meals came out in 10 mins!! Kids meals were good quality and quantity and great to see sausage and chips on the menu. The kids meals were well presented with a nice side salad. Jumping castle kept them busy once they finished eating. Schnitzel & burger really nice too. $60 for 2 adults and 3 kids. Great value. Lovely view over the lake and a beautiful old pub. Staff were very friendly and apologetic about food wait times (even though this was explained before we ordered). My only hiccup was my toilet cubicle had no toilet paper. We will be back.

Such a shame, lovely spot and great potential and you get the feeling someone cares, but our experience in the restaurant was dreadful. The food didn’t are and after some time it became clear that they didn’t have the ingredients. So they just didn’t bring us anything! In the end and after asking numerous times the entree and main all came at the same time. The beef salad was nice, but the steaks were all overdone- even rare was well done. Even the chips were nothing special. You need to get it right every time if you want to have a successful business.

Ordered the southern fried chicken burger, something tasted gross on it so I pulled it apart and realised there was a sauce that tasted like a Bolognese sauce. It had tomatos, herbs and pine nuts in it. This was not stated on the menu. I tried scraping it off but it had soaked in the bun and went all over the salad leaves so i ended up taking the bottom bun off as well as salad leaves and ate the rest with a fork and knife. I later read on the menu that the sauce was a sundried tomato pesto that is meant for the vegie burger. Southern fried chicken only had a crispy coating on about a quarter of the chicken, the rest was bare and dry. Chips were nice. Other family members had the schnitzel who were all happy with their food.

I have been frequenting here on and off for years, however on this occassion the food was at a next level of garbage I havent tasted before. Charcoal snags, burnt schnitzel with more oil on the plate than the "Exon Valdez" oil spill, the fact that they argued the point on return of the food and refused a refund just shows the measure of this business to it's clientele and how they operate. Won't be going back...

New cooks? Something seems like it’s changed in the kitchen here. The quality of the food was really good! Perfectly cooked eye fillet steaks, fresh salad and a delicious honey mustard dressing, and crispy chips. Nothing wrong there. The selection of wine and gin was lacking but the food was reasonably priced and spot on.

Ordered three meals tonight for takeaway however when we got home discovered they had only provided two meals in the bag. Moral to the story, check your order is all there before you leave. And don’t expect an apology or even a “sorry about that” when you go back because you won’t get one.

Being pressured by the barman to order immediately because it is 2.29pm and the kitchen closes at 2.30pm (I can't tell the kitchen what to do...") is simply ridiculous. It's a shame really. The outdoor seating area with water views are quite appealing.

The owner/ Manager is moody with no personality creating an unhappy atmosphere, it would be so much nicer if his attitude was happy and positive. From my observation the female staff are upbeat and happy if only there were more female staff. For atmosphere I would give it 2 out of 10. The menu has been the same for years but more expensive now ! A change of menu would be welcome, and not so expensive. New ownership would be amazing it could be a beautiful place. The ladies toilets are original and disgusting. Cheers to change !
