We had a lovely lunch on the patio to celebrate my friend's birthday. Excellent food and very attentive staff. We were able to linger on a beautiful afternoon and never felt rushed.

Our first time at Lake House Restaurant. We really enjoyed it, especially the opportunity to dine outside on the patio. Such a pleasant early evening by the water watching the boats and ducks go by, very relaxing. Good to celebrate the last Monday of summer 2018 enjoying a great meal by the lake.

The service is slow, but that is only due to the fact that the restaurant is busy. The wait was worth it. The fish tacos were amazing - highly recommend!

The view is also stunning.

We will definitely be back!

long wait for food, people who sat and ordered after us got their food before us and then pizza came out with the edges burnt and the prime rib was over cooked and sides were cold. At this point didnt want new food, those items were taken off our bill but never saw a manager and bill wasnt discounted or anything to make up for it. Would not go back and would not recommend it.

Gigi was awesome. The servers had great recommendations for inside the restaurant and things to do in the area. My water glass was never empty and the Canadian burger was the most burger I’ve ever had, and I’m from Texas. Couldn’t have had a better experience.

Excellent lake view. Attentive and good customer service. Well decorated. Very popular, very busy and this somewhat noisy. The servers work very hard and are professional. The food is good but not gourmet. Our party of 4“foodies” thought there was too much salt & more herbs should be added in entre food prep. The calamari appetizer was amazing!!

Well worth the driver from Milton, Ontario and Buffalo, NY.

Beautiful location offering outstanding views and breathtaking sunsets. The food was excellent; the cod was the best I've had and I have been to Newfoundland! The lobster Mac and Cheese to die for. Staff were professional and very pleasant. Would have rated perfect; unfortunately the noise level was very high. Will be back.

The Lake House was an excellent experience. I took my girlfriend out for our first year anniversary. With a reservation, we were seated promptly. Our server was attentive and offered plenty of suggestions. The bread was nice and crusty on the outside and soft on the inside. We had the baked brie appetizer, which was delicious. All our food was excellent. The ambience was wonderful for a romantic date. We had a good view of the Lake and were allowed go out onto the patio and just enjoy the view after dinner. It was worth the drive from Hamilton for a special occasions and worth the price. My girlfriend and I already have plans to visit again for another special occasion.

Stopped on our way to Toronto on the Sunday of Labor Day weekend after two days of steady driving. Glad that we did: pleasant setting on Lake Ontario, fine brunch menu. Great place to relax before we set off on the last leg of our journey. Service was a bit slow on a busy holiday weekend, but otherwise, a very enjoyable few hours.

I was disappointed with the food. the salmon i ordered was good but no rice or roasted potatos only 4 pcs. of asparagus for $26....not sure if i will be back...same with my wife's dish, she had the chicken....no value. This used to be a place to go for a great meal for a good price and a fairly quiet place to enjoy, i could have mistaken this place for Boston Pizza....sorry for the poor review but thats the truth...you need to tell your customers to tone down the volume.

Service was great, the price and portion of food was not what I expected. Not very generous with portion. The steak meal was poor quality. I would not recommend anyone requesting to sit in the window area unless you prefer the sauna feeling while dining.

We went to Lakehouse on the spur of the moment while driving home from a weekend in Toronto to Buffalo. We were probably dressed a little too casual for the restaurant! The food was great, the view was perfect. The women's washroom was one of the nicest, cleanest washrooms I've ever stepped into. We definitely want to come back. Probably for a special occasion since we live in the states, but we're excited to bring our friends there and show it off.

Lake hour was amazing!!! My husband and I celebrated our 4th year anniversary with a romantic dinner at the lake house! The service was quick and our server Courtney was very pleasant and thoughtful. We told her it was our anniversary and she came to the table with confetti hearts and she provided us with complimentary dessert with candles for our special day. The atmosphere was romantic, beautiful view and the food was so tasty! We live in Brampton and to drive 1.5 hours to get to the lake house was worth the drive! Cannot wait to go back!!! It's a must try!!!

We were a little disappointed.
The waitress forgot our dessert.
They forgot to five my husband cutlery.
The salmon was dry.
My fish was good. The couscous was cold. But when I asked they weren’t sure if it should be cold or hot.
The appetizer salad was not so good.
Overall food was ok. Prices were high.

We had a group of 6 for my husbands birthday celebration. Everyone said their choice of food was excellent. My husband had the salmon and I had the morrocan lamb. Both dishes were fabulous. The lake house has done some renovations. It is brighter now but has maintained a nice atmosphere. Good choice for a special occasion. In the summer their patio is open but we chose indoors due to weather. The service was attentive without being around all the time. Good job!
