Lakeshore Grill Ridgedale is the proto-type for Macy's casual dining establishments, providing superior food and friendly service in an inviting, contemporary environment. It's what makes us the first choice for shoppers and diners in the Western suburbs....
Built on the bones of our successful Lakeshore Grills in Minnesota and Detroit that provide regional cuisine to a loyal guest base, the new LSG brings an updated twist to our long-time favorites and adds a focus on local sourcing, organic and vegetable based choices alongside heartier meat dishes and a fresh emphasis on beverages and small plates. Here you will find an environment that caters to both traditional guests and more adventurous tastes....an expanded wine list, hard ciders and custom drinks play a role in bringing newness to our menus.

    Thank you Lakeshore Grill. We were pleasantly surprised to arrive and find that our requests on our reservation were available to us. We enjoyed a very tasty dinner in a booth set off in a more quiet section of the restaurant that made perfect for good conversation. Our server was excellent, funny and very accommodating. Thank you...we will be back ;-)

    The french toast did not appear to have any egg in it, rather, it was fried bread and totally dry inside. The English muffin under the benedict was saturated with oil and the poached egg yellow was solid.

    This is the fourth time I have eaten here for lunch. It is always great. I loved the gluten free salmon entrée. It was excellent. It would be nice if they offer gluten free bread of some type. Our waitress was very nice. I was planning to order the gluten free kale salad which I loved in the past. However, I was disappointed because it is no longer on the menu. Hope you will bring it back. Thanks.

    I love Lakeshore Grill and have been meeting up there for lunch or dinner since the Boundry Water days!! It is a perfect place to meet because of centralized location for family and friends. The menu items seem to always have just a bit of a twist which makes it unique, fun and most enjoyable! In fact, I am meeting up with a friend this Wednesday there again for lunch!

    Seven of us met at 11:30 on a Monday for lunch. We were at a round table. We could not hear what anyone at the opposite side of the table was saying. The nice level was NOT "energetic ". It was just plan LOUD! The small pop overs were cold when they were brought to our table. All-in-all, I will not go there again. It used to be one of my favorite places. Sad.

    Always good food at the Lakeshore Grill. I had the mandarin salad. I did not like the coating on the chicken. I have eaten at Macy's Southdale for years and eat the mandarin salad there. Southdale does not put a coating on their chicken. The coating distracts from the good dressing.

    Six of us went to the new Lakeshore grill to celebrate a friend's birthday (the restaurant was her pick). Not only did all six of us rave about our food, but they catered to my friend's food allergy without missing a beat. Our waiter was both attentive and helpful with suggestions. We also loved the "four bites" desserts (which are much larger than four bites)! Thank you for a wonderful experience.

    We had called the day prior to check on outside dining and were told the outdoor patio would be open as long as the weather was nice. We made reservations for the next day (temp was in the 70's and sunny). Imagine our surprise when we got there and the patio was closed for the season. After much discussion and persistence on our part, they seated us outside and unchained some charis, raised the umbrellas and sent out a waitress. Within about 20 minutes, EVERY TABLE was filled with customers who enjoyed the fresh outdoors while eating their lunches. The food was all very good and our waitress was VERY good .... friendly, attentive and competent. We will be back.

    There were five of us high school friends together and we had a great time. We enjoyed the food and atmosphere but our service wasn't great. We had reservations for five when I arrived the 5th chair was added last minute and there wasn't any silverware or small plate for her. Our server kept forgetting our drinks. Our server was pleasant though and polite. We are planning to be back in December. It's a beautiful restaurant comfortable seating,not too noisy. Our party ordered the chicken pot pie,and the macaroni is always great. I think it's safe to say anything on the menu is great. I have been there many times and everything I have tried has been enjoyable. We also had dessert and there are many selections.

    This is my second time here since they re- opened and my last. It takes WAY to long to get the food out of the kitchen. I order from their gluten free menu which I think is the issue because everyone around me who orders after I do, gets their food before me. The server even gave us free dessert this time because we waited so long. I won't be back but hope they fix their issues. I would say the food is average. I saw an apple cranberry salad they were offering on TV but it wasn't on the menu. Disappointed

    I was impressed with the modern updated look. The small but nicely designed bar has a comfortably sophisticated feel. I liked that there was a 3 oz. wine option and that expresso and cappuccino were available. Service was friendly. The flatbread appetizer with sausage and chunks of fresh Portobello was tasty. I enjoyed the Mandarin chicken salad; my husband the Portobello burger. Pricing choices were very good.

    We haven't been to the Lakeshore Grill since it has been remodeled. It was a great experience and the food was very good and our waiter was awesome. Tim did a wonderful job and added to a very nice experience. Lunch was on a Friday, so it was noisy, but we enjoyed it very much.We enjoyed it so much that we went back for dinner on Saturday.

    We all loved sitting outside in the beautiful patio. The umbrellas were great for sitting in the shade. We all enjoyed our food and the service was great. I will definitely return. Our waiter, Abdu Isaak, was wonderful. It amazed all of us how he could remember all of our orders, without writing them down. We all enjoyed his sense of humor as well. He did a great job!

    We stopped in for a quick dinner. The redone decor is beautiful and they have an a large opening overlooking the patio. Very pretty. The food was good, although we both ordered salads and the amount of protein on them (chicken for one, salmon for the other) was minimal. Would like to see a slightly larger amount of protein, even if you have to pay a dollar or two more. Service was very good. Server was very friendly and attentive.

    I love the renovation of the Macy's Lakeshore Grill Restaurant at Ridgedale. I ordered a Gluten free salad that was excellent. I can't wait to return. Our waiter was delightful, and everyone was so friendly. It was fun seeing our waiters new twin babies. The place is beautiful and the food was wonderful.

    ...they had more gluten free options. I've grown up going to this restaurant, loved it before, and the renovation is gorgeous. I even know all my favorite selections on the non gluten free menu, which are great. But, since I discovered my gluten allergy, they have one of the most limited entree selections I've seen in any current restaurant and my meal was extremely boring. I have a heart connection with this restaurant so it pains me to think they are so far behind the times with gluten free options when their new, fresh look is so beautiful. I will give this place 5 stars for their ambiance and regular menu, but, their lack of options for allergy sufferers disappointed me.

    My husband and I went here for lunch on our anniversary. The restaurant is brand new and is very clean and bright. There was a decent crowd but we were seated right away with our reservation. The food was delicious! I had the baked mac and cheese which was wonderfully creamy. My husband had one of the specialty burgers on a pretzel bun. Our server, Matt made great recommendations about menu items to try and was very attentive to us the entire meal, without feeling intrusive. I would definitely go back again and bring friends!
