Good food. I ordered the fish special-excellent. My friends (3) all ordered the thin crust pizzas and all took half home. Service was good-efficient with just the right level of friendliness. I usually go to this restaurant for lunch. I found the dinners more expensive - the fish was pricier than the pizzas, but worth it.

Four of us went to Lake House restaurant for a birthday dinner. My stepmother is an excellent cook and so is my husband; they both loved the sauces and their dinner in general. The lobster sauce with the cod and my sauce with my salmon were so delectable!! My father loved his veal parmesan so much he commented a few times. Also we loved the view of the lake as the waves were crashing. The birthday dessert made Chris feel special. She is a pastry chef and was surprised by the cherry pie filling on the cheese cake but we loved everything else. Thank you also to Amber for exceptional service. You have obviously chosen a great team, a wonderful location and are delivering great memories!

Great ambiance and great food. The paella was generous with seafood (YAY) however not traditional with all the cream added to it :)

Crab cakes were delish!

We went to Lake House for my mother’s Birthday. View of the lake was beautiful.
Food arrived within a reasonable time and was of good temperature when we received it. Would have liked to see some more options on the menu and have the flexibility to remove items from the dish that you cannot eat or do not like and substitute it with something different. Larger portions of sides would be better. I had the pecan salmon with a small Cesar salad and 3 asparagus. Food was tasty though. Nice ambiance.

The food was very good and arrived promptly. The only issue we had was service. It was very bad. No one came back to check on us. We waited forever for our plates to be cleared and then we weren't offered the mini desserts just given the full dessert menu even though the wait staff were bringing the selection of desserts to other tables. Would've stayed longer and spent more money if we didn't feel ignored.

We have been here many times, many. That speaks for itself. Took friends that had not been before. The portions were adequate the flavour tantalizing and the service was pretty good. Table ready when we got there. Must try sister restaurant in Burlington however. Keep up the good work.
thank you

Service was excellent. Food was hot and very tasty.
Recommend reservations. It was a busy lunchtime and the room we were originally seated in was full of diners and very noisy, however we asked for a quieter area and they changed our table - no problem.
One of our favourites.

From the easy reservation process; to the friendly greeting, at the front-door kiosk; to the server's pleasant placement of us, at our requested window-seat; to the perfectly-timed delivery of beverages, salads and then, our food (delicious, chow at that!) - we were so pleased with the whole experience...especially, as this was my wife's birthday!...Thanks to you all, for making this so special, for her!...We will be back!...Alan Erb

The place is lovely and food is good. Service friendly and efficient. The noise level in their sunroom is beyond ridiculous if the place is busy, which it always is. can’t hear self talk. Really spoilt our visit with another couple. We want to chat and plan a trip over a nice dinner. We ate and got out so we could go home where it was quiet and talk.

Great food as always. Love being able to book online first. Wine recommendation was perfect and we always get to try something new. I had the Prefix which was also very well put together. Love the ambiance but it was unusually loud that evening such that we couldn’t hear ourselves talk at first. There were several very laugh groups all together in the room where we were as just a couple. Otherwise lovely. Would love to see the parking lot paved so we’re not walking through the mud though.

Ive been to the Lakehouse many times. Ususally I like it and enjoy it. But this time I did not. I ordered the Brie with filo pastery and it was fantastic very delicious. But I ordered the filet mignon. NOT HAPPY. The outide was seared so bad it had a burnt taste and was so hard that you needed a saw to cut through the seared outside. The inside was done medium like I ordered it. Not sure what was on it, if it was pepper or whatever but it was really spicy/peppery that my mouth was burning and I could'nt finish it. Did not enjoy it at all. I was very disappointed especially it was not a cheap cut of meat. Also the parking lot needs to be restoned, I went there in November and again last Friday and the rocks were so big that I almost rolled my ankle both times. So there was plenty of time to get parking lot fixed. I ususally recommend this restauant to my friends and have bought gift certificates for people too, but I am not so sure next time. Also since they redid the inside and it does not look as rustic, the noice level is so loud that you can't even carry on a conversation. Four people was not bad, but when we had 6 people the people at the end could not hear us and we could not hear them.

Awesome restaurant! We would return again next time we're on the QEW in Canada heading towards Toronto. Great location and fabulous ambiance. Lovely menu, very tasty food and excellent service. Our server "Chris" was wonderful. The Lamb burger, Caesar salad, and flatbread pizza were outstanding. Prices were reasonable too!

The restaurant itself was great. I would recommend that they pave the parking lot. I have been there several times over the past year for various occasions. The stones make it very difficult for anyone in a wheelchair and anyone walking in heels. Seeing as it is a nicer restaurant, many women dress up. The stones are a twisted ankle waiting to happen. Pushing a wheelchair to the ramp was extremely difficult through the stones. Please consider this upgrade your business looks like it is doing very well.
