If you like a rustic jetty amidst million dollar yachts, you will probably be happy with this for the venue alone (Lake Macquarie Yacht Club). Sprout no longer are the caterers sadly, because the food was very good as well. On the only occasion we have visited since, that standard had slipped a little.

Had a great meal with a stunning view on a perfect Summer's day. Situated right on Lake Macquarie, it is an amazing place to spend a Sunday afternoon.

The location is on the shores of Lake Maquarie, and even if you didn't eat , it's just lovely sitting watching the boats on the water. I have eaten here 4 times in the last month and every meal has been lovely. They are always accommodating if you want a main size of one of the entree specials or share... More

Went to Lake Macquarie Yacht Club for family lunch (6 members), booked outside table, loved the views of the water and boats, drinks were from the bar and were reasonable in price, meal orders placed at counter with delivery to table. Service was friendly and efficient. Everyone enjoyed their meals, prices ranging from say $16 to $30. Dessert and coffee... More

We recently went there for a Birthday. Very disappointed on the qualify and quantity of the food. Overcooked meals and small.. Lovely setting but too expensive for a Bistro with no real service. Will not be back

This restaurant is very good casual dining however in the ever condescending spiral of trying to reduce costs they now omit the salmon from the salmon cakes. Should just call them what they are "potato cakes"

Every time I eat at Sprout Bistro I am so pleasantly surprised! The meals are sensational. The service is lacking but always friendly. Go for great food but DIY service.

When you get a great night like the night we got you appreciate where you are, right on the water with beautiful views of the lake. The feel of the place is very relaxed but you have to order at the counter and get your own cutlery. This doesn't show in the price of the food however, very expensive for... More

Without question the best food in Lake Macquarie region. The quality if the food is excellent, and if you sit at one of the (plastic) tables outside by the water, the setting helps you forget the tacky chairs and table and the lack of ambience. We recently had the tuna steak served with Niçoise salad and could not have been... More
