My husband and I were there for our 40th wedding anniversary. The food and service was excellent, the only disappointment was where we were seated. I had made these reservations months in advance and requested a window table. This did not happen. In fact, we were squeezed into a small table close to the entrance :(

Great service. Food was OK. Got sat in a corner near table with kids...after requesting a table by the window for my birthday. There were a few tables open there when we were sat. Should at least keep two tops near each other and not sit couples near larger parties.

Felt like an assembly line. Tables to jammed together. If you have a lake view might be a little nicer.

Didn’t know there was only an appetizer / salad menu / pizza between the hours of 3-4pm. Reservations was for 2:45pm for brunch, and the hostesses didn’t inform us of the menu change if we were going to wait for a table outside. A little disappointing.

With that said, it’s a beautiful patio area and the mussels were delicious.

The menu offers a good selection, my wife chose the Chicken Supreme I had the Chicken Parm. The chicken was a very small serving and my Chicken Parm was burnt.
The waitress was excellent but very busy, we did not feel comfortable commenting ,we had been approached by the manager earlier inquiring if everything was fine.

I brought my cousin who visited Ontario for the first time and the Niagara region before heading back to England. I wanted him to see the lake over a leisurely lunch before taking him to the airport. He absolutely loved it....the food, the view and the service was excellent! Thank you!

Had some friends up from the deep south of the USA. Their real "Foodies" and were pleasantly suprised at how great the overall experience was. They especially loved the PEI muscles and the generous amount that was served. We had a reservation and only waited a few short minutes to get a seat out on the patio over looking Lake Ontario. We had visited 3 local wineries late morning and early afternoon and going to the Lake House Restaurant was a great way to cap off a great day. Weather was perfect. Thank you to all the staff at the LHR.

The food is good but nothing particularly memorable. The space is lovely. The hostess was somewhat rude. We came in gave our name for the reservation and she then answered the phone and engaged in a 2-3 minute conversation about a new reservation with someone else while we stood there. Logic would suggest that she ask the person on the phone to hold as we were already being served. No sorry about that or just a moment, a lot of attitude, and surely not a welcoming presence. The big issue is it's so loud, crazy loud. You need to put some kind of material on the ceiling to absorb the sound.

The waitress was great. The overall experience was good.

We had relatives from BC with us so the location and scenery was great. Food was proportional,a little pricey. We showed up earlier than our reservation and were pleasantly accomodated. The noise level went up exceedingly loud, glad we got out when we did!
Overall, a very pleasant (little $$$) dinner that impressed out of town Family.

First visit for me, while my wife has been previously with a girlfriend. It was a beautiful summer afternoon when we arrived for lunch. We were quickly seated on the large patio overlooking lake Ontario. Server was great and the lunch was the best meal of our vacation!
We will be back!

The waitress was rude and did not know how to give a guest a fine dining experience. All the food is made with butter and cream. There are a lot of people now that are allergic or on special diets so the Chef should have some more variety.
The food was of poor quality considering that this is fine dining.

Excellent experience as always. Decided to dine on the deck outside at 4pm, as it is never available when we had been before. It turned out not to be the best decision as the umbrella’s do not protect you from the sun and there is no breeze.
Food and Service was outstanding.

3 meals were great, one came out cold and had to be sent back. Had to wait a while but it was very good once it arrived. Restaurant is dated and in need of some renovations.

Had the prime rib. 12 oz. cut is huge. Taste is okay - nothing special or wow worthy. Bread pudding, mashed potatoes and gravy were uninspired accompaniments. Caesar salad was perfunctory. Risotto was passable but flavours lacked distinction.
Service was excellent. Patio seating offers a beautiful view and relaxing vibe.
This place is hopping busy so diners must enjoy the restaurant; maybe made to order steak is better?Go for the lakeside dining but keep food expectations to a minimum.

Beautiful view of the Lake! Great food and service! The room was somewhat noisy....making conversation across the table somewhat difficult. It is still one of our favourites!

I made reservations for 4 at the LakeHouse Restaurant through Open Table (great app!) which I use frequently. Our table wasn’t ready when we arrived on time so we sat at the bar. I found it strange because as we walked through to the bar there were empty tables. We waited 15 minutes only to be seated at one of the tables I noticed was empty when we first arrived and is probably the worst table in the restaurant. It was pretty much right in the entrance way , and directly behind the servers stations. You could feel the floor move underneath us with all the traffic going by. Water tasted like dirty pipes - at least serve it with lemon , the bread was brought warm but without butter which is normally nothing to really complain about but I tried to politely get the attention of our server several times with no luck. I even resorted to doing the boater’s rescue wave that you use when you need help - that didn’t work either. By the time we got butter the bread was no longer warm. We waited a really long time for our food and the steak was over cooked. They offered to cook us a new one but we waited so long for our food we just didn’t want to wait any longer. Dessert was no better. I left the restaurant wondering what you had to do get get a table over looking the lake ( as 3 tables for 4 were available when we were seated at our table), ...at least if the food isn’t great , having a beautiful view may have made me feel that spending over $300 wasn’t a complete waste of money.

Great place to go for a lake view and comfortable atmosphere. It does get a loud when the crowd comes in. Food is good and the wait staff is tentative.

This is one of my favourite places - i have been coming since it was plain and fancy! Our experience was amazing! Food was better than i remember, the patio was so beautiful and our server, Leah went above and beyond to ensure our visit was exceptional . Having worked in fine dining myself, Leah is exactly what I would be looking for in a stellar server - thank you Leah !!!

Anniversary outing, I made resv. online, requested window, had to wait once there for that window seat. Prime rib only on Saturday, fine print. No mention of discontinued Veal Parm. Bread brought to the table no butter, I know there was Olive Oil, my wife can't eat it . Ordered drinks server Julia forgot to bring them, had to remind her. She told me the bar was backed up but new arrivals were receiving there drinks, so I know I was lied to. We had finished entrees before she brought the drinks. My wife's meal was brought out and she had to ask for cutlery. We were never asked how to food was, how the steak was cooked etc. What also surprised me was the dress of the clientele (girls in bathing suite type clothing), I've seen better dressed people at McDonald's. Not a very classy restaurant. One positive thing was my steak, very good and cooked right. I will never go back.
