There's nothing quite like it

Crusoe’s on the Lake is the best waterfront restaurant in Belmont. Hosted by Lake Macquarie Yacht Club, Crusoe’s is the perfect restaurant venue to dine and catch up with friends while admiring the wonderful view across the water or to grab a coffee and relax in the sun. Stretching over the water is a massive deck that is a bustling locale on warmer days. There is nothing quite like it in all of Newcastle and Lake Macquarie.



Crusoe's on the Lake, Restaurant Belmont, Lake Macquarie - Header Menu

Our restaurant menu offers the best value for money in all of the Belmont and Newcastle regions with a variety of dining options to ensure there is something to impress everyone. We serve the traditional ‘pub fare’ with a couple of twists and also have a range of share platter options, which are great for groups enjoying a drink on the deck. Our $15 lunches are available during weekdays and our restaurant specials change regularly.


We know that our delicious food plus the stunning location directly over the water of Lake Macquarie make a perfect combination for a relaxing lunch or an exquisite dinner.

But sometimes people like to savor the food we create with love and skill in another idyllic location.
That’s why we also do Take-Away.
