Located in the heart of the Okanagan, 20 minute drive from Kelowna and 25 minute drive from Penticton, the Gasthaus on the Lake pub and restaurant provides a year round dining destination. Whether it’s for the beautiful garden patio in the summer or the famous medieval feasts in the winter months, you are sure to have an unforgettable experience at the Gasthaus.
Built in 1999 and opened in the spring of 2000, the pub has a casual yet classy atmosphere. There are many events throughout the year, including live jazz nights, oktoberfest, medieval feasts and holiday celebrations. Reservations are always recommended, especially during the summer and on weekends.
The dining room was started by the original proprietors Werner Fischer and Joerg Hoerath in 1991. They were later joined by Devin Smith in 1994. The 3 collaborated on the expansion of the pub and garden in 2000. Housed in a log cabin the dining room has an atmosphere you’ll only find in Bavaria. If you’re looking for a more formal and intimate experience then the dining room is the perfect place.
Have a feast fit for a king for your group of 10 or more. The Gasthaus’ legendary medieval dinners are a perfect way to make your dinner gathering even more memorable. Pewter plates, dripping wax candelabras, stuffed boar’s head, your waitress in costume and everyone taking on the role of a medieval diner are part of the fun but overshadowed by the impressive feast. We start with homemade bread hot out of the stone oven. Next we serve piping hot soup out of the castle-sized fireplace. The main event is the huge 150lb cast iron pan that two chefs bring to your table. Loaded with ribs, chicken, duck, schnitzel, pork hock, ham and much more. Lastly hot apple fritters are served with ice cream and whipped cream. $31.90 per person. To book your medieval feast call (250) 767-6625
