Our group of 6 stopped in for a late lunch yesterday. We were out for a snowmobile ride. The restaurant had a place for our gear. Our waiter was fantastic. Friendly, fast and thoughtful. He was quick to see that your drink or beer were near empty and checked to see if you wanted another. Each beer is served with a frozen glass. The cocktails ( Caesar and Paralizer) were excellent. The restaurant was clean and cozy. Fireplace throwing heat if you’re cold from the ride. Bathroom was clean as well. And the food... piles and plies of delicious hot goodness. The portions are huge! Prices are very reasonable. Our waiter came by to check how our first bites were tasting because he noticed how quiet we’d become. Laughing, “can’t talk, eating “ If you happen to be in the area don’t miss this awesome restaurant and make sure you come hungry!

"Delicious Greek Salad, Nice Patio next to the Lake, Beautiful Setting!"

I stopped for lunch at Brereton Lake Restaurant on my way home after a weekend spent in the Whiteshell. The restaurant was on the main highway through a small development of cottages in Brereton Lake and it had an inviting and charming atmosphere and appearance. There was a spacious outdoor patio at the front of the restaurant, looking out to the highway and with views of Brereton Lake. It was a beautiful and peaceful setting. I ordered the small Greek Salad and it is one of the best Greek Salads I have ever had. It tasted amazing and the portion size was massive! I can't imagine what a regular or large salad would look like. The prices were very reasonable for the amount of food you received. The service was friendly, though unfortunately, it was extremely slow. I waited approximately 45 minutes for my salad to arrive (and the restaurant wasn't that busy), which I thought was a little bit long. Other than the slow service, the food was amazing and I would eat here again.

"Amazing food. Great prices"

The service and restaurant was fantastic! I found the menu prices very reasonable and as soon as you get your food you won't even question prices. I got a B.L.T.C. with frings and it was delicious. Also worth saying you don't get 4 measly onion rings for the side, there was plenty of leftovers (i actually ended up taking half my plate home lol). I had ice tea too, not sure if it was homemade but it was delicious (and definitely not Brisk). Would definitely return! Maybe on a sunny day so we can enjoy their patio area :)

"Best pizza"

Best pizza we have ever had. Caesar salad delicious and Caesar drinks are a must. We enjoy it there so much we drive out just to eat several times a year. Nice deck to sit on, on a nice sunny day. Staff is super friendly.

"Found a Gem!"

"Never Disappointed"

Be warned: food servings are huge. As an example, an irder of chicken fingers is 8 fingers and a kid size ice cream is 3 scoops. I've been here a number of times and have never been disappointed, nor is there even a slim chance of leaving here still hungry. prices are midrange but worth it. If you are looking for good value on a budget order the nachos. Plenty for two as a meal, probably even three. Although this place has take out it isn't a fast food place so if you aren't prepared to sit back, relax and enjoy the company of whomever you are with, this isn't the place for you but if you are looking for a relaxed atmosphere and good food this is the place. Probably the best restaurant in the Whiteshell Park.

"The Greg's Special Pizza"

Greg runs a friendly place. Great service, OUTSTANDING pizza, especially his special, beautful scenery in the lounge, a neat little store as well. You have to stop.

"Excellent Service"

We have been to this restaurant many times in the last seven years. The owner is very friendly! He always remembers us and makes us feel very welcome. The service is also very prompt and the restaurant has a great park ambience. I would like to see a few more vegetarian options but that being said, I have always found something to eat on the menu. I have yet to stay at the resort but am looking forward to staying one day considering my experience with the restaurant has been so positive! Oh yes, and portions are huge. Go hungry!

"Comfort food"

As a cottage owner on Brereton Lake we enjoy a break from cooking meals and go to Brereton Lake Resort Restaurant or commonly know as 'The BLR'. The food is always great and we've rarely had to wait for a table. Service is prompt and atmosphere pleasant. Only problem for me is I go away stuffed. Have never been able to finish a meal as way to much food. I always bring the left overs home but sadly don't often get around to eating it the next day. I think sharing a meal will be the way to go from here on.

"Worth the drive!"

We went to the restaurant when an unexpected rainstorm ran us off the beach looking for shelter. We were delighted with the interior of the restaurant and the very friendly staff. We stayed for lunch and enjoyed all of our meals. The nachos in a cast-iron skillet were amazing and huge!! We also tried the pizza, chicken fingers, greek salad, denver sandwich, bbq beef sandwich and philly cheesesteak sandwich. All were delicious and the portions were very generous. Once the rain stopped we were able to sit on the outside deck and enjoy the sun. The kids had ice cream cones afterwards which were the biggest we have ever seen! All of the staff were so nice and the fellow who I think is the owner/chef was incredibly funny and welcoming. We will definitely make this a place to go to whenever we are in the Whiteshell area. We will probably make excuses to go to the Whiteshell just so we can go back to the Brereton Lake restaurant!

"Brereton Lake Resort Restaurant A Treat"

We have been cottage owners in the Brereton Lake for many years and have eaten at the Brereton Lake Restaurant many, many times. Without exception, we have had great eating experiences there...a wonderful surprise for cottage country in the Whiteshell Provincial Park. The menu is varied, the prices are reasonable, the portions are huge, and the food is delicious! Oh, and you can order breakfast all day until 5:00pm...always a nice options! Greg (the owner) is always super friendly and the student staff he hires are a lot of fun. There's also a small lounge attached to the restaurant (separated by a fireplace) and my husband likes to go there occasionally for a beer and to watch a sports game. Also, there is a small convenience store attached to the restaurant and they serve up amazing ice massive quantities...order a "half kiddie" cup and enjoy two large scoops of their ice cream.

"Surprisingly very good"

My wife and I dropped into this place thinking it was a fast food sort of place; we were surprised to find that the food wasn't fast style but really good. The fries where nicely done and the hamburger amd salad was excellent. Of course the scenery is beautiful making this visit wonderful.

"Excellent food and selection."

The biggest challenge I find at this restaurant is the large size of the portions. My wife and I often share a meal as we are not fans of large portions. Of course when we go for the Mussel dinner we each order our own. An awesome meal. Greg always is accommodating and cheerful which adds to the ambience.

"Hidden Gem"

The last thing I expected was the best mussels I've tasted to come out of Manitoba. Large portions and great food. Along wth descent prices. Don't drive by this gem in the Whiteshell Park.

"Huge portions"

We recently stopped here for breakfast/lunch on our way home from the cottage. The restaurant was very nice although freezing so we decided to sit outside on the patio. Breakfasts were enjoyed by the two that had it. The hashbrowns were chopped up fries which was odd but tasted ok due to the added onion. I had a burger which was slightly disappointing as it was a frozen patty. It came with choice of side so I had "frings" which is a huge portion of half fries and half onion rings. Visited the washroom on my way out and it looked like it could use a good scrubbing. All in all I would return but not have the burger.

"Late breakfast"

They serve breakfast until 5pm, useful to know if you are spending a lazy time at the cottage! We arrived at around noon and were served by a friendly waitress, who is obviously used to the lazy cottage pace patrons get into. No hurrying along, patient and attentive. Breakfasts were plentiful, two of us had the Brereton special, essentially bacon (or sausage) eggs, hash browns and toast. Eggs were cooked perfectly as requested, hash browns were basically cut up french fries with a little onion but tasted good. The third person ordered an omelette and found the portion to be too big. Perhaps a smaller option needed on the menu? Drinks were OK, Coffee was plentiful, in fact the coffee drinker at our table had 4 cups of coffee. Two of us had tea, one served in a teapot with the end of the spout chipped. When refilled there was no new teabag offered which would have been nice. We are talking standard Red Rose here (never my favourite brand) not some fancy tea infusion drink. Overall the food was good, drinks ok, and service reasonable. Would go again.

"Hike & A Bite"

We ordered a Poutine with Chilli Sauce- It was AMAZING- way beyond our expectations. The service was fast, efficient & friendly. The menu offers many great options. The ambiance was welcoming, aromatherapy floats from the kitchen to greet you, & clean. The quality of food was definitely worth the price. Will definitely pop in for more tasty adventures in the future A great experience must be repeated
