Despite the fact that the place was full the service was prompt and the food was excellent. We were on our way to Sangamon Auditorium and had plenty of time to enjoy our food and get there well before the beginning of the show. It's a great place to eat. Highly recommend.

Overall our experience was great. We've been there before and the food is always good, but this time it was only so so. I order the seafood pasta for the first time and it was luke-warm and dry. We had a large party and I think it might have been sitting a while. I would still go back in a heart beat!! Pizzas and calzones are amazing. I wish they'd bring back the grilled Italian, it was the most incredible sandwich.

We always enjoy Lake Point. The only reason that I tested this visit list is that we were squeezed into a table in the bar area. When I make a dinner reservation I expect to be seated in the dining area.

We celebrated my 60th birthday with a group of friends from grade school. The server was attentive, yet not overbearing. We told him upfront that we were in no hurry. We had appetizers, drinks, then dinner, followed by a birthday cake! It was a very enjoyable evening.

I had seen the previous excellent reviews and I guess I was expecting something special. The food was good but the ambiance was that of a regular pizza joint. The grandkids thought it was fine and that served the purpose for the evening. Our waitress Erica was so friendly and kind you just had to smile......she was the best part of the restaurant.

My twelve year old daughter picked this restaurant while we were on vacation, and she made an excellent choice! There were four of us ranging in age from 12 to 81. The food was enjoyed by all. We especially liked the relaxing atmosphere, the fantastic server, and the plentiful free parking.

The food was very good. I ordered a BBQ pizza and my wife really liked her margerita pizza. It was in the mid-nineties outside so I think the air was having a difficult time keeping up because it was warm inside. Liked the place overall and would definitely go back to keep trying more items on the menu.

This is a fun, local place to eat and is very easy to find. The food is delicious and we have never had a bad meal. The waiter did make a mistake on one of our orders, but he was apologetic and the mistake was corrected very quickly. Their oven fired pizzas are delicious and are large enough for a follow-up meal. The wait staff is experienced and know the right amount of attention to pay to you.

Our go- to place for dining out. Great food. Service is always good and the menu is rotated so often that there is always something new to try in addition to standard favorites. Has a relaxed neighborhood feel.

A great restaurant very close to our home and visit there often. Always excited about the spicy concoctions they prepare. The Creole Pizza was great, but disappointed that they now serve the Gumbo only on Tuesdays. That is my favorite. Will have to plan on Gumbo Tuesdays in the future. Service was beyond excellent, even with 8 total and two kids. See you again soon.

For a 7pm meal... food ordered for three. Two dinners came out cold which were corrected. The place was very busy tending to numerous larger parties. You still need to cater to the small twos and fours and have the food hot coming out. 3 out of 5. I have been there before. I like the pizza and salads. I had the Atlantic Salmon this night it was dry.

Please step it up. Great location. Food is middle of road. Drink list is fair.

Kitchen gets backed up often when the restaurant is full. Server took almost ten minutes to get to the table and then the food took another 35. Manager came by and we told him we were waiting a long time for the food he came back and quoted us the time that the order was in like our weight was insignificant. Bottom line we were seated for 45-50 minutes before we got our food and we were ready to order when we sat down. We go there a lot. Good thing the food is good.

We chose Lake Point Grill for Valentine's dinner because we took our 10 year old with us & they have a variety of items -particularly pizza.
We were seated immediately, our waitress was very pleasant.
Food came out quickly.
My husband ordered the NY strip meal on special. He was very happy with his choice. Cooked appropriately & good flavor.
I chose the shrimp & grits. Order this!! Cheesy grits, peppers, andouille sausage, and really large shrimp all put together with a spicy kick! It's delicious!
My son had the pizza - he really liked it.
Our waitress was on point & so pleasant.
We will be back.

Service was great. Very friendly. The food was very tasty. I had the stuffed meat loaf and my wife had the big bowl beef stew. Both were rich and hearty. Great comfort food for a winter evening. The wine list was good and reasonably priced. Overall, a great experience.

We have been fans of Lake Pointe Grill for quite a while. The food is excellent, the service is always great, wonderful atmosphere. We really enjoy eating there and recommend it to others often. I have heard from others that all of their dishes are excellent. My husband has had the stuffed meat loaf and he is a picky eater and he raves about it. Having said that, most of the time, we don't make it past the wood-fire grilled pizza. It is absolutely the BEST pizza around!
