I had run short of ideas for dining in the Niagara area given a lot of places are on reduced hours. And I have recently been quite disappointed with the food quality at a few higher end places in southern Ontario. Also I was only in the area for a few days so I didn't want to do a bunch of searching. Then I saw The Lake House, situated on the shore of Lake Ontario, and decided some comparative analysis with the other The Lake House, situated on the shore of Lake Bonavista. The latter is one of our family favorites. Good choice! Excellent and timely service in a quiet dining area overlooking the lake. I started with the baked brie appetiser, which was well prepared but more warm than baked. Then I moved on to their baked cod on a bed of crustini-mashed potato (I think the Lake House description is more elegant) and asparagus. The cod was very moist and well adorned with delicate spices that complimented the subtle flavours. I topped it off with a small dessert of creme brulee, which was rich and a perfect way to finish off a great dinner. It all worked out well - I am a bit more fond of the western version of The Lake House but encourage you to try them both.

This is the best restaurant in the Niagara area hands down. We have been coming to the Niagara area for over twenty years and always drove right past the lake house. It was always busy looking but for some reason we never dined there until yesterday. Wow, we were impressed. The service was top notch. The food exceptional. One of us had the salmon and the other shrimp pasta. The atmosphere is beautiful. Our only regret is that we didn’t stop here sooner. Congratulations to the management and owners who are doing such a wonderful job. I thought the prices were very fair for what we ordered.

Service was very friendly, food was excellent.
Would prefer not to have our dishes cleared when other people at the table are still eating but overall a great night.

We really appreciated how the restaurant accommodated my 90 year old mother, who cannot eat garlic, and the two dishes she ordered were made without any garlic including the toast!

The food was good but pricey for what we had. The wine was VERY expensive. Considering I could buy a bottle of Riesling for $13 at the LCBO, $18 for a 9 oz glass was a bit of stretch. Two of the people in our party shared a 1/2 litre of a white wine and it was $29 which I thought was a lot considering the wine we ordered was nothing special. I've been a patron of The Lake House for a very long time and continue to eat there because of the view....not the food.

Was last at this restaurant 30+ years ago when it was Plain & Fancy.
We wanted a view of the lake and tasty food. We got both.
Would recommend and will return for sure.

It is one of our favourite places. However, it has been a number of years since there has been anything new on the menu and for the last couple of years, maybe due to COVID, there has been no specials. Something different would be appreciated.

Great food, great service, but used to being in a quieter section. This was the first time we were at the back of the restaurant farthest from the door. The room was very loud and chaotic. I feel it would benefit from having 1-2 less tables as this was the first time back there and was not as enjoyable. We are used to being near the fireplace or by the water. Both areas seem much less busy and loud. Still a lovely night though.

It was our 24th wedding anniversary! The Brie appetizer was fantastic. The waitress was very attentive our main courses were excellent and they even brought us a free dessert for our anniversary. While we were there we were discussing coming back with our kids and there significant others.

Server was very pleasant and prompt. Food and drinks were amazing! Only thing I wasn’t a fan of was that a baby was there on Friday evening at 6pm and cried sometimes. I asked to move tables and was redirected to a new one quickly. That’s not a poor reflection on the restaurant at all, that’s just people. I would not recommend bringing children here, it’s a place for adults to enjoy time away from that, especially on the weekend.

Your restaurant was very busy but everything was served hot and quick. I would recommend the Lake House to everyone and give it a 10+

We arrived 45 min early. So lunch menu was still in effect. Our waitress talked to the chef and let us order from the dinner menu. The food was excellent. Our compliments to the chef and our waitress for going the extra mile to accommodate us. A definite go too for a great meal and amazing ombiance

It was subdued lighting and I didn't have my reading glasses. No problem, our server brought over a tray of reading glasses for me to choose a pair that worked. Very friendly service, great food, and lots of ambiance. Wouldn't hesitate to have another meal there.
