    As a new owner of a rental property in the resort, I wanted to see if I should recommend this restaurant to my future guests. I would be embarrassed to recommend dining here as the drinks were poor, the food was bland, and the service was terrible. While dining, the lights flickered for 15-20 minutes and patrons were commenting about it causing headaches or seizures. Just a nightmare!

    Wife's salmon dinner came out uncooked, sent it back. The NY strip steak was good, but it only came with kettle chips with some type of topping on it. Would expect more than chips for $38, like maybe a baked potato or vegetables. Overall it was nice and maybe the kinks are still being worked out.

    We were seriously disappointed by this restaurant. Service was awful, wasn’t even approached by a server for 15-20 minutes when we sat down. Prices were crazy for very poor quality food. Everything looked like it sat under a heat lamp for an hour. Very dry and flavorless.

    We eat out several times per week all over Antrim County and especially in Bellaire. There is no place that can compare to the Lakeview whereas the View is concerned. Beautiful Views of Lake Bellaire and the Summit Mountain slopes from the Top of the Mountain! The Salmon and Steaks we had were excellent and the Service is unequalled anywhere in Bellaire. We love it there!

    When I arrived at the Hotel I decided to ask the hostess if I could have a window table for my dinner reservation at 6:30pm. The hostess stated if I came at 5:30pm I would have a better chance at getting a window table. So I changed my reservation and did get a window table. I never felt rushed & the service and ambiance was outstanding. My steak was ok - but the value for "date night" was great. I would totally recommend having dinner there again -- and getting a window view was worth moving up my reservation (even though that too was not guaranteed - but it all worked out).

    Made on line reservations a week in advance, specifically asking for window seats in the reservation, asked for table next to the window, to watch hot air balloons take off. Didn't get a table by the window, and was sat in a spot without a good view. Windows that overlook the view of the valley were DIRTY! Overall attention to detail was poor, food was fair. We would not make a special effort to go back.

    The food was poorly prepared, sent my steak back once still not well done. My husband’s fish was barely warm, he ate his dinner before mine was brought to me. Manager gave us a free dessert to share, that was also disappointing as the cream puffs were hard and the fudge sauce was grainy. We would not come again or recommend to anyone.

    Not a good experience this evening …… the only saving grace was , the server was so nice as was the rest of the staff …… this place really needs to get it together ….. the menu is very minimal, which is fine , however, shouldn’t everything on it be good…. Sadly it wasn’t , we gave our feedback to the staff and I think they appreciated it and hopefully will discuss it with the kitchen

    Our dinner was absolutely perfect. The restaurant was super busy on Valentine's day so we had to wait a little for our reservation but that was no problem at all. I had the ribeye and my girlfriend has the seafood stew special, both of which were phenomenal and our server Whitney did an excellent job as well. Thank you for a great Valentine's Day dinner!

    We stayed at the Shanty Creek Resort for our anniversary for the first time. We reserved dinner at the Lakeview restaurant at the resort for the first night. I had mentioned it was our anniversary on the reservation but wasn't expecting anything. We had delicious food and we were given a complimentary small happy anniversary cake to share. So sweet! We went back for dinner a second night and it was equally as good!
