OPENING 3Sheets on the Lake in Woodlands is a “dream come true” for owner Toby Evans.
The Woodlands resident said he had wanted to transform the site opposite Jackadder Lake into a casual eatery for 20 years.
He has finally realised his dream, expanding his Hillarys venture to the former Blu Grill restaurant spot.
“I absolutely love this whole area,” he said.
“We felt it was time to expand and when the location came up, we jumped at the chance to re-fit the venue and turn it into a new 3Sheets, as it really is the perfect location.”
Mr Evans said 3Sheets on the Lake borrowed sister restaurant The Portside’s popular shared food boards and aimed to offer a family and dog-friendly place to enjoy a drink and bite to eat overlooking the lake.
It is serving brunch, lunch and dinner, and people can enjoy a drink without a meal.
“There’s nothing like this in the area,” he said.
“You can bring the dog, bring the kids and watch the world go by.”
He believed it would offer something for everyone and entice visitors from as far away as Fremantle.
Mr Evans said they had brought the 3Sheets “winning formula” to Woodlands, including again working with artist Nardia Peos.
He used the City of Stirling historical archives to research the suburb’s history and Peos created a mural depicting this, with the artwork representing elements including the old dairy that used to inhabit the area and the former service station.
Plans for the venue include a Sunday family session with live music and children’s entertainment, and a ladies who lunch special offering bottomless bubbles and unlimited gin and tonics.
3Sheets opens this weekend at 88 Rosewood Avenue, Woodlands.
