Seafood paella is a bit on the heavy side, big enough for 3.

Went here for brunch. Great location - directly on the lake with an awesome view. The inside of this restaurant is adorable - I feel like you’d never guess how cute it is inside when driving by!

Had a Brie skillet to start and was absolutely delicious! Had the breakfast sandwich after .. which was just okay- the bun wasn’t toasted or anything so it wasn’t that warm. Otherwise a great brunch.

It was once again a phenomenon experience. Food was outstanding. Nicole our sever was very pleasant! Couldn’t believe it, but one of the servers did an outstanding job of cleaning the table once a party had left-even cleaned the legs of the chair. We were VERY impressed. Top notch place for a party or an intimate dinner for 2. Thank you!

Everything was wonderful. Just found it very loud and alot of hustle bustle . Not too romantic despite the beautiful views. A bit squished in between tables. Parking lot was a muddy distaster. Food service were top notch though.

We recently had lunch at the Lake House to celebrate my birthday. The food was delicious, hot, good portions and nicely presented. Our waitress was super friendly and she was a delight. I appreciated getting the piece of cheesecake for my birthday. Definitely will return.

We were there for Sunday brunch and it was amazing. We got there before the crowd so we pretty much had the place to ourselves. The food was fantastic and the service was just as good.

Fantastic food, get location. Got a seat right by the window overlooking the lake. Food was fresh with great flavours. Wine list was excellent - beer too. Service was timely and knowledgeable. Food arrived also in a timely manner, with great presentation. My only comment would have been the noise level. It was a romantic dinner but i wouldn't call it quiet or intimate. The place was packed so there was certainly a buzz! We did have trouble hearing our waitress. Otherwise highly recommend!

I love to meet my friends in Niagara for lunch at Lake House. Considering I am coming from the GTA, it is the perfect in-between meeting spot, with spectacular views of the lake. The ambiance is always warm and friendly and cosy while maintaining a level of formality and reverence. The food, especially the Lake House Salad and the pizzas, is always scrumptious! We were delighted with the selection of wine, and the coffee we had after lunch was outstanding. We look forward to our next visit to Lake House!

First time going there on Sat. Parking was impossible....had to wait 15 min while my wife was starting without me...as I jockeyed for position to find a spot. Ended up parking in a fire zone....like several others....and made me enjoy dinner less as I worried that my car would be towed. Food was ok...but just ok. Server was either overloaded or very forgetful.

We won't return.

Made a reservation here for my boyfriends birthday and from the moment we walked in they made sure it was special for him. Nice added touch of confetti on our table, our sever Ashley was bubbly and attentive and brought out a yummy cheesecake with a candle for him at the end. We all enjoyed our meals very much and they seated us at a window seat with a wonderful view. Will definitely be back!

It is great that there is a vegan option in the menu. It was delicious - risotto. The occasion was my husband’s birthday - he is a steak guy and enjoyed his meal too. Feel free to add more vegan options because I would love to visit more often if there was variety!!

the only complain i have is that my husband ordered a medium rare steak and it was purple in the middle. He didn't want to complain but I feel he should have so he could have enjoyed his dinner. My prime rib was medium rare also but very good and much enjoyed. Everything else was great.
