The Big Moo

Offering too many flavours to count of delicious Foothills Creamery Ice Cream. The perfect treat on a hot day!

Lodge 43

A family restaurant that focuses on local ingredients, creative signature dishes and craft beer and cocktails! Their food menu covers anything you may be craving plus they offer the largest craft beer selection in Sylvan Lake.

On The Lake

A spectacular patio overlooking the lighthouse and marina with Cali Cabo cuisine. Keep the margs coming!

Snake Lake Brewing

Enjoy the industrial vibe of this local favourite. Not just beer, they also have drinks from their distillery and NA options. Their Easy Lemonade never disappoints! 

2nd Wind Brewery

A great stop along Lakeshore Drive for something to quench your thirst or hunger. Stay awhile and indulge in their assortment of board games.

Hazzard County

A well established dive bar with live music every weekend. If you are feeling brave... kareoke on Thursdays!

Bamboo Hut

Best Thai in Central Alberta and just around the corner from us! Grab take out and head to the beach or back to the cottage.

Sweet Home on the Lake

Grab an infamous seasonal drink or something sweet at arguably the best location in town. Enjoy the lakefront patio or shop the boutique!

Lokal Kitchen

Another "lokal" favourite! Outside of the waterfront district but worth the trek for their quality menu, can't go wrong. 

White Frog Cafe

Our closest coffee house to the cottage and inside the most unique building of Sylvan Lake! With a farm to brew approach to their beans, the owners literally have a hand in every step of the process from beans grown on their farm to roasting them in house.
