This is a very nice restaurant with an area where you have a beautiful view of Lake Ontario. While that section is very busy and can probably not accommodate every guest, if you make a reservation you should ask for a window area. We were there for a Sunday Brunch. The menu was somewhat limited but offered enough selections, particularly for seafood lovers. I had the clam chowder, which was the soup of the day and the crab cakes, which come with poached eggs on top, both of which were excellent. My friend had the falafels, which were also very good. The menu is a bit on the pricey side, but the food is worth every cent.

Staff was very attentive and friendly. We had made a reservation beforehand and everything was fine and highly efficient.

We will definitely be back.

The food was good. The menu had a reasonable number of choices. Prices were consistent for this type and quality of restaurant. It was a bit noisy.

We loved the food and the service was exceptional my only complaint was it was rather loud and we were hopping for something a little more intimate

The Lake House is my new favourite restaurant in the Niagara Region! I went with a colleague for dinner and loved everything about it. The staff were very friendly and professional. The food was excellent. I love the decor and the ambiance. The view of the lake is lovely. I would definitely recommend this to anyone.

We tried the prix menu. For the price it was reasonable and food tasty. Lot of background noise and smell of seafood. Service was good.

Lakehouse never disappoints! When they offer a special for the night - it is amazing! The servers - no matter who we get - are the best! Highly recommend this place.

The view is great, the service was great, the food not so great. Both starters we had were good but the main course a little cool and fatty (hamburgers). It was on a very busy late Sunday brunch. The red house wine was excellent.

Love the food and service is always excellent. We found the noise level to be quite distracting and will request a quieter spot next time but overall, it’s outstanding.

It’s all about the view! Caesar salad was small and soggy, shrimp small and overcooked. Server was friendly and professional. Nice to see a busy restaurant at lunch on a random Wednesday! I will return for the views and perhaps try the lunch feature of the day.

A little pricey , but I would definitely return. Food was perfect. Not thrilled with parking lot being unpaved, considering a nice restaurant should have better parking. Great staff! Waiting time between appitzer, entre and dessert was just right.

Though everything was great from service to food, if it hadn't been for a gift card to use towards our meal, not sure if we would have arranged to try the Lake House or not as it was a bit pricey for us. That's just us as we do have a budget.

Always an enjoyable experience. The menu doesn’t change much but it’s always a great meal. We had the prefix where all the choices are fabulous. Our server was attentive, fun and friendly. She recommended a bottle of wine we hadn’t tried before and it was great. I was incredibly noisy for most of our dinner though with several loud tables next to us such that we couldn’t carry a normal conversation with each other. The feeling was they were packing a few too many tables to closely which took away from the atmosphere.

It was out first time at The Lakehouse. I made a reservation that morning and the process was quick and easy. On arriving at the restaurant we were seated right away. Sadly our table was in a tight corner. I think had we arrived around the same time we could have waited at the bar for a better table. Service was ok, but rushed. Our drinks came and then our app and literally as the app plates went in one door of the kitchen the supper plate came out. Under 75 minutes for drinks, apps, meal and dessert is too quick. The ambiance felt lovely with big windows and nicely decorated but the screaming toddler and the people in tshirts, jeans and baseball hats kind of threw me - not that those things are the restaurants fault We will go back.

Our steak was under cooked -
When we paid our bill the handheld was presented to us with the tip option already prompted. Thought that was odd. The service was excellent. Just wondering if this is the policy of the restaurant or a function of the handheld.

We were celebrating our 32nd wedding anniversary. Our waiter, Matthew, was excellent. He took very good care of us throughout our dinner. My meal (fish special with quinoa and curry aioli) was outstanding but my wife’s meal (chicken parmigiana) was somewhat dry and over cooked. The restaurant was very loud too. Overall, a pretty good dining experience.

Only issue... was seated at first table inside the door for 2 people (end of banquette). Every time the front door opened there was a very cold draft. Hate to think how cold it would be in winter.
