Enjoyed a very pleasant delicious pizza and white wine with a friend on the original patio looking over the lake. We had just finished watching the sunset from our kayaks then headed over for a bite to top off the evening. Weather was perfect and the setting you provided with the service was a great way to end the evening. Thank you !

Our first time dining here -what a fantastic place to eat! We sat under the covered patio, they took safety precautions for COVID-19 very seriously. Our meal tasted great, wait staff are friendly and well informed. we will definitely be back!

We had a great lunch even though my dad was surprised by the difference from the dinner menu. So keep that in mind. He tried fish tacos which he swore he would never have, and thoroughly enjoyed them.
They were great with my 5 year olds birthday and the kids menu allows for a Shirley temple and dessert which was the best!
Mussels were delicious as well!

First time out since covid. We wanted to sit outside on their patio but it was full and the wait was over an hour. However, they have put up a large open sided tent with a view to the water on the side and not only is it just as nice as the real patio, we didn't have to wait. Smart of them. Food was really good, service great.

Aimee our waitress was outstanding - attentive but not hovering. The restaurant was right on time with our reservation and respected all COVID protocols. Our table was secluded on the patio - perfect! We were celebrating our anniversary and The Lakehouse made it special for us. It has always been a favourite place for us and they live up to that outstanding reputation

Very Very slow service, people walking from table to table without mask and no one saying anything to them, did not feel comfortable at all. Food was just ok .

Fantastic experience. A little disappointed that I made a reservation 4 weeks in advance for an outdoor table and ended up with a table inside or we had to wait 45minutes. But overall loved it!

The restaurant was very busy and reservations are recommended if you want to sit outside. Social distancing was good but not intrusive. We booked Saturday night on patio to get a good time. Great view. We were seated on time. Service was friendly and efficient. Food was excellent. Wife had the Prix Fixe Menu with Baked Brie (in pastry) and Chicken Parmigiano. Both excellent. Desert was a parfait which was just right with lots of choices. I had the Seafood Paella for one which was excellent. Large portion with lots of seafood, chicken and sausage. Highly recommended. Desert was cheesecake which was tasty, no too sweet and embellished with fruit. Second time at the restaurant and will be back. Lots of parking.

Can never get on the deck, without a long wait, food was good, charcuterie board was a disappointment, over priced. Our server Ashley was so nice.
Better night would have been had if we cou6have sat outside on the water.

The gluten free bread was delicious but I did not care for the gluten free pizza crust. It needed to be cooked longer as it was doughy.

Third time with a reservation and we’ve never had a lake view Or anywhere near they lake. Now I hear “walk-ins” get seated on patio. While the food was good, sitting in the corner of a tent facing vinyl is not the atmosphere diners are looking for at the “Lake” House. I would’ve have had a nicer view from from my car in the parking lot. Seriously. Sadly, not returning anytime soon.

It was my first time attending this place, and after hearing endless good things about it, my boyfriend and I decided to check it out for our 5th anniversary.

What an amazing experience! I LOVE the decor, the rustic appearance, the environment (even during COVID, they made it work wonderfully) and the beautiful lake view. The restaurant has nice seating, offers tables for any number of groups, and it gives you your own space so you can enjoy a conversation with your party.

The waitress who tended to us was wonderful. She and the staff were very welcoming, friendly, upbeat, knowledgeable about the food, plate sizes, drinks, etc. We had a few questions and she was able to answer right away.

The supervisor of this place kindly comes around to every table and checks to make sure everything is being enjoyed. It was thoughtful, and nice to see such passion and admiration in the environment.

The food: Incredible. The menu offers a wide variety of dishes from gluten-free, to steak, seafood, pasta, and pizzas. I enjoyed my meal very much, as did my bf. We had an overall lovely time at this place.

I highly recommend it to anyone :)
I like this place as you can dress up and have a fancy date night (suit and tie type outfits) or keep it more business-casual.
After we finished our supper, the staff provided us with a piece of cheesecake for dessert, special for our anniversary! It was such a kind gesture, we were really appreciative of that.

I was very glad we chose this place. We will be back in the near future. I highly recommend to everyone, go experience this place in person. You will NOT be disappointed!

The food was well above average. The calamari and muscles were great appetizers, and the baked brie was delicious but I thought it would come with more greens to help cut the fat of the cheese and pastry.

The salmon maincourse was slightly overcooked and the honey mustard sauce was a little thick and although good, wasn't a great match. It was rather sweet and overpowered the fish. Something with a little more acid or something herbaceous could have worked better. The sweet potato hash looked appealing and had great texture.

The desserts were delicious. Overall, the prix fix menu is a great deal. They have a good local wine selection at reasonable prices too.

Loved the food, atmosphere and pleasant staff. The view I am sure is amazing but mother nature provided fog instead of sunshine. We will be back again. One small complaint...speakers on deck are a bit too loud.
