We had an excellent meal with friends at the Bungalow Lakehouse! They had our Open Table reservation and seated us right away. The food was excellent...especially the Daydream Burger. The service was a bit slow, but we were busy socializing so it didn't matter too much. I would highly recommend this restaurant.

Beautiful place for dinner even though it was not busy . I took advantage of the $6..99 burger special on Tuesday night, and the hamburger was cooked just right but the sweet potato fries were cold. The waitress was very helpful and attentive.

We always enjoy coming to Bungalow Lake House. My friend has some allergies and needed a cream sauce to be removed from her dish. The staff removed it for her and we enjoyed a nice night.

Good food! The London broil dip sandwich and the grilled chicken sandwich were very good. The mac n cheese had bits of bacon in it and was delicious! I would highly recommend getting the mac n cheese for a side rather than the fries. Service was excellent. Very pleasant place. We sat in the dining room. The bar area has the better view however it was dark and noisy.

Fantastic food and huge portions. You'd think this place would be 20% more expensive than it is based on food quality and service level.

We sat in the quiet bar are. Unfortunately there was a rehearsal dinner party in the room next too us singing karaoke which was way too loud. The poor manager asked them to turn it down but they refused. With the World Series on the bar TVs and the karaoke you couldn't hear anything.

Worst experience we’ve had at Bungalow Lakehouse. Service was agonizingly slow. Waited at our table for 45 before being able to order food. Hard to get refills on drinks. Food was just ok. We used to go there a lot, but it had been a while. Probably won’t go back.

Smell of smoke walking into the building - turns out they have a cigar bar on the property. That’s fine for cigar smokers, but not for us. Food is fine, but don’t believe this place lives up to the high ratings.

Food was good. Our dining room was stuffy/old fashioned. Would have liked to sit outside but the cigar smoke was unbearable.

Wonderful local gem with lots of dining options to suit a range of styles, from special evening out, to patio dining by the lake, to a fun bar night with friends. Love the attentive and friendly service! Food is consistently delicious and we were delighted to experience the Oktoberfest beer and food specials. Highly recommend!

Classy place to go with a friend or a group. The food and service was delish. I loved the chicken lettuce wrap appetizer and could have that as a meal sometime. Beautiful atmosphere.

The server was very attentive. The food was good, but our daughter had a hard time finding something without onions. Most ingredients in the dishes are prepared earlier in the day and if you hold the onions out, you get just something plain as they are mixed in with the other ingredients that make the dish.

Hi Guys,

One of the many things I learnt as a waiter in London restaurants was that you never bring out the main course until the appetizers are finished.

This happened to us on Monday.

Consequently not only did we have to rush our appetizers but also our main course became cold. Not to mention the abundance of plates on the table!

We like your restaurant and will be back again. Normally I would have made a fuss but hey.....it was a lovely day and my wife and friends deterred me. (ex waiters...like ex smokers are always the most critical!)

Please don't penalize our waiter I'm sure he tried his best. But something to instill in your staff. Timing in a restaurant is as important as the food.

All the best

This was our 3rd visit. 6 of us came for a family get together. We came from Winchester which is a 35 mile drive. Food was excellent! One meal was returned with a small problem and it was replaced very quickly. Portions are always a very good size. The waiter was helpful and kept our drinks full and table clear. Needless to say I left a nice tip. We will be back!!

The basket with bread we ordered never made it to our table. The waiter told us a mix up happened. The food was great as always. Overall the waiter was not very attentavive and we had to asked another waiter to clear the table after we were done with dinner.

Sat in the bar, was very busy and noisy (which we did not mind), service was slow at times because it was so busy, but our waitress was sweet! Food came out quickly and was quite good. Would go back when I am in town.

Went on half price burger night , (Tuesdays) after not having been there for about 2 months. They have changed up the burgers and the one the I liked (California Burger) they took off the menu because it was too much like their full price California burger. Funny I thought thats what half price(gourmet burger night) burger night was. O_o
I wound up getting the Big Ben with the toasted ciabatta buns that I didn't care for and it broke up as I was eating the burger. They are apparently enforcing the "no substitutions" so I couldn't change the bun to the brioche bun. The no substitutions rule is to keep people from building a full priced california burger for $6.99. I really can't believe they were losing money on that as the burger nights in past the dining room was pretty full, it wasn't so last Tuesday, will have to check back.
Everything else though was great.

Heard good things about this place so we decided to check it out. Really glad we did because it was all around excellent. The deck has a gorgeous pond/lake view and fabulous for a warm afternoon/evening. Our server was great and attentive. My food came out incorrect and our server was quick to fix it. I just believe my requests got overlooked in the busy evening kitchen because I saw our server take note. They remade it in no time. Their happy hour deals are great and so is their food. Their fried pickles are to die for! I have since been back this place is awesome!
