Always a great experience here! The food is wonderful and my party was delighted to catch the Sunday brunch on our visit this time. There is a great variety on the menu and the service is always good. The views alone make this a great place to go, but the food never disappoints and brings it right up to excellent!

My wife wanted to sit near a window because there was a cold wind blowing off the lake and too chilly to sit on the patio. We were seated next to the door to the patio and every time the door was opened the wind almost blew things off our table. We requested another table and were told that wasn't possible....other people with a baby got to change tables.

Visited Lakehouse on June 21. Made a reservation online and they followed the instructions online asking for a window seat to perfection. We had Gigi serving us and she was excellent. No pressure all evening and was very knowledgeable about all the things on the menu. Very happy and would definitely recommend!

This was our first visit after years of “we must go there” every time we drove past. We went for my husbands birthday at lunchtime. We had a short wait for a patio table. The view is gorgeous so well worth the wait.
We served by Christina who was just lovely. So friendly without being in your face, really chatty and open. I had the Brie skillet - divine, hubby had the mussels which he said were the best he’d had in years. I had the chicken burger and he had the shrimp mac n cheese. Both were delicious. We then had creme brûlée and key lime pie.,also delicious.
Altogether a lovely experience, the service was impeccable and the ambience was just right for lunchtime.
We will definitely come back.

We spent our 4 year anniversary here for dinner and for our first time here it was absolutely amazing. Our waitress Adrienne was so welcoming and made sure our night was perfect! The food was also amazing and at a reasonable price. Please recognize Adrienne in her excellent work as she is the reason we would return!

Thank you

The service was very good and the meal was OK. The problem was the noise level in the dining room. There was a group, possibly of employees of the same company that was so noisy that other diners entering the dining area immediately asked to be moved to another location. In retrospect we should have done the same, but we had already ordered and drinks had been brought to the table. If there are more private areas available, perhaps larger groups should be there rather than in the main dining area.

The patio on Lake Ontario is one of the best in Ontario,

The quality of food is excellent and the prices are reasonable for the quality and quantity of food.

Inside the restaurant the tables are close together and the noise levels can be high; this is generally a busy restaurant because of its food and excellent location on the Lake.

We love this place and eat there every time we are in the Niagara area. The food is very good, service is always friendly and helpful and the atmosphere is fun and "beachy"- very nice casual place. It was too cold to sit outside on the patio but our window seat overlooked the lake.

Birthday and Father’s Day celebration. Booked with Open Table but could only book for 4. Called restaurant to boom for 8, we got bumped from a time slot of 11:30 to 2:45. When we got there, had to wait for a window table for another 25 minutes. The only saving grace was Leah our server who apologized constantly. The service by her was excellent but the treatment overall was unexpected from this restaurant that is practically an institution. Food was very good.

The food is delicious, the service was very professional, the view spectacular. However since the renovation (very lovely!), the restaurant is very loud when full and it is difficult to carry a conversation. The past couple visits we nearly have to yell to hear each other across the table which isn’t the nicest :(

Atmosphere was excellent...like the new interior colours. P.E.I muscles were some of the best I've had. mentioned we were celebrating a birthday and Leah did not disappoint. Sunny breezy day and looking out onto the lake we felt like we were in the Carribean . Can't wait to come back. Cheers!

A cool windy day, so patrons were NOT opting for the patio, which is usually popular. We were seated at the least desirable table - an entryway to/from the kitchen/bar and washroom area.
We asked our server if we could move over one table and after checking she was able to accommodate.
This particular table should be the last utilized.

Service level was excellent. Noise level was a turnoff. Restaurants need to consider acoustic ceiling options to absorb/minimize noise.

I did not like being addressed as “honey” otherwise service was very good
I asked for the music to be turned down as we were in the corner underneath the speaker, that helped but the noise level in the room was making it hard to have a conversation without shouting

Extremely nice restaurant in a beautiful setting. Food was extremely good and there were three of us dining and all enjoyed the meal.

Unfortunately our waitress lacked training. I ordered a beer with a glass which she brought. She then poured the beer so that the entire bottle was emptied into the glass and was to the rim so that I could not lift the glass for fear of spilling it. She seemed to find it humorous. Shortly thereafter she struck up a conversation with the table behind us and jabbered loudly so that we could not converse over the noise. When she left the table things were quiet again. Really had to doubt her training. She unfortunately detracted from a perfect evening.

Beautiful night to sit on the patio. I had the crusted salmon and it was brilliant. My wife had the Moroccan lamb, spicing was good, but you have to be a lamb meat appreciator if you are going to truly enjoy that meal. Leah was great, view was perfect, ambient music matched and added to the atmosphere. NOTE: patio is only first come first serve and you cannot reserve a spot on Open Table.
