Second time to this restaurant and both times our meals were excellent. We did not have a reservation but luckily were able to be seated inside (we wanted patio which is right on the lake). Our server was knowledgeable, and friendly. The menu is pretty...More

Good customer service and something on the menu for everyone, not to mention that view. A bit on the pricy side, but it's quieter and not a 'party place' right on the main strip of Pennington so you get a higher quality of food/ beverage...More

It is a very nice place. Romantic dinner or business. Right on the lake, doors open breeze coming through. Service and food excellent. Pricey.

Food and service were outstanding. The offerings for kids are equal quality to the adult meals and the view from our table was amazing. Check out the pic!

This restaurant has an amazing location and view on the lake. I wasn't impressed with the calamari - the portion was very small. Not enough to share. My salad was also soggy and was lacking some flavour, I would give it another try though.

We stayed at the Lakeside hotel, so this was a convenient stop for dinner. The atmosphere and service were beautiful, but the food was just average. When we asked if the halibut was fresh or frozen the answer was "as fresh as it can be,...More

Sorry, I don't know. No one in our party had any dietary restrictions so we were not sensitive to that option.

Named after the rare and reclusive North American duck that shares its name (and flew onto the restaurant patio during name selection) the Hooded Merganser is a culinary and architectural masterpiece that straddles Okanagan Lake to offer panoramic views of the lake and mountains.Inside, the décor is luxurious, the atmosphere is casual and the menu diverse yet surprisingly reasonable: contemporary local cuisine and phenomenal views of the Okanagan Valley.
