    Beautiful spot to dine with a wonderful view. Menu was being pared back for end of season and my server was unfortunately very scarce. A bit on the pricey side for what you get, but this seemed typical in town. Most staff were great and would return for another visit.

    As per my last review I do not see much change in the food quality and service. Busy place in a lovely town with few dining options. But for the price of the food here quality really needs to improve. Rude receptionist when I asked for a window table - was almost yelling at me. Very embarrassing. I don’t think the management reads these reviews!!

    The food was great but unfortunately the service was very underwhelming. We sat down for half an hour before someone brought us over waters and took our drink order. Our server mentioned that they were very understaffed and too busy.

    I've been to this place before and we hit it on a very difficult night for them while apparently things went sideways in the kitchen and had a domino effect on the entire place, with everyone overwhelmed and nothing going according to plan. We had an 8 pm reservation and waited (along with several other parties with resos) in line, for more than an hour to be seated. Though by that time most diners had cleared out, service was slow and my food (a NY strip meal) arrived literally cold to the touch. I hate to complain but after standing in a sweltering lobby that long, we deserved a decent meal. My plate was taken back, whatever done to it, and returned to me somewhat more warm, except the mashed potatoes, which were still only lukewarm same as they had been. The server was apologetic and very lovely and I have been here before and had much better service and food. It was I hope for them a one-off but I hope in the future they will come up with a better way to deal with lineups of customers with reservations (or take the 5 minutes to shut down OT resos for the night when slammed), to actually speak with the people crowding their lobby and asking who has reservations, check them in, apologize, tell them how long to expect, and perhaps offer some complimentary beverages for the inconvenience. 15 minutes is one thing, an hour is another, and the young women at the front desk just ignored everyone unless people approached.

    Came in behind a tour group. Waiter worked hard, but really didn’t get the service that should come with their prices. Never came back to ask if we would like another glass of wine. Should offer a side salad size when ordering an entree. Cesar salad very large with a salmon entree.

    Unfortunately our entire experience with Lakeside was poor. I had made reservations for the restaurant however when we arrived at our reserved time we were told that a large tour group had been booked in so they would get the restaurant (with the lovely lake view) and our option was the lounge (no view) or the front patio (along the street side). We expressed our disappointment however we’re told there were no alternative options. We accepted a lounge table which was even worse than imagined right by the open door with lots of bug coming in, bugs lining the window sill and right next to the open bathroom door as well. Our waitress was fairly prompt and polite. We ordered drinks (which were the only good part of the entire experience) and the kung pao and tuna poke bowls. Both were Incredibly salty. Tasting more like a fast food bowl rather than a nice $30 dish at a nice restaurant. We were hungry so ate about half of each dish but then couldn’t persist longer and just accepted we would find something else to eat later. We expressed our disappointment with the salty dishes to our waitress and she sent the manager over. The manager was very professional and apologetic and took the food items off our bill (without us asking for this). We were happy with the manager’s response, unfortunately the experience was so disappointing overall regardless. The restaurant has a beautiful location and on our vacation to visit Waterton we would have loved the opportunity to enjoy the view. Very disappointed that the restaurant prioritizes big tour groups over individuals. Sadly we will not be recommending or returning.

    Wow, what a great evening we had at Lakeside Chophouse! Brad, our server, truly made our dining experience an enjoyable one. He was attentive, efficient, and funny (we laughed throughout our meal). We sat outside on the patio and kept warm by the propane lantern overhead - it truly is a beautiful ambience. Our meals, perfectly timed to give us a leisurely dinner, were not only pleasing visually, but full of flavour and perfectly prepared. My husband had the filet and it was cooked exactly to his liking. I enjoyed the crab cakes (probably the most moist that I have had) and the caesar salad which was perfectly balanced in flavours. Overall, we would highly recommended the Lakeside Chophouse. Be sure to ask for Brad as your server.

    The food wasn’t hot The Mashed potatoes didn’t taste fresh more like the days before… Our appetizer was a a baked cheese that was still cold in the centre and didn’t pull apart like it was supposed to. The service was bad … it took 15 min for the lady to come back to our table I actually had to get up with the cold appetizer and bring it to her . if I’m going to spen 180$ on a dinner with my fiancée I accept much more . It was very sad

    We ordered the Calamari, Cauliflower Steak and the Lobster Linguini. Our Appy came out after our mains were served. The Calamari was so spicy I couldn't enjoy it, my partner ate it but his mouth was burning for awhile after dinner. We did have it once before and do not remember it to be that hot. Lobster linguini was ok. Portion of pasta was small. Not enough greens. Very greasy from the butter?? Cauliflower steak was good, have ordered before and is consistently good but for a meal that caters to vegans I would not expect cheese in the salad. Drinks were ok. We wanted the Pomegranate drink but they were out. Ordered the Berry burst instead. We will be back as we have always ate here when in Waterton and the food and service is always good. Our server was very busy and could have used some help.
