    Went to the Lakehouse for a quick dinner and a celebration meal and our server Gabriella was amazing. The new Pom margarita was great, and I really enjoyed the shrimp tacos. They actually let me do some grilled and some fried which was amazing. My mom got the prime rib, dinner special which she thoroughly enjoyed. We were then greeted with a dessert tray and chose the carrot cake, and this was also to die for. We will be back based on this experience alone, and for the fact that it’s right around the corner from our house

    We sat in the enclosed patio, comfortable despite being below freezing outside. Our server was attentive enough but appetizer came out late. Food was very good and reasonable prices. Not the most romantic ambiance, patio pretty loud but we could still carry on a conversation. They do have TV's all around with sporting events tuned in. I can imagine ultra popular in boating season. Happily recommend!

    We had a nice meal and time recently on a Saturday night, it was our first time. The service and waiter was excellent. We sat in the outdoor area that is heated in the winter and it was nice and warm with a view of the lake behind it. I look forward to going back when it is warm to enjoy being on the lake. Food was good, we all had a burger, chicken wings and prime rib. It is pretty loud, which we didn't mind, but just expect to talk louder. Overall a nice experience.

    It was a good meal! We started outside but found a hole in the plastic windows which moved us inside. Waitress didn’t seem to grasp that utensils for 2 wasn’t enough for our group of four along with 1 butter plate. Asked for more butter plates and got a second basket of bread.

    We got lucky as it was Wednesday wine night and all bottles are half off. Service was great overall a very nice place. I had grilled cheese and soup and the soup was cold. Didn’t send it back because I don’t mind my stuff not being hot, hot others might.

    I met with 2 of my college roommates. The restaurant was cool and the service was very good. I ordered the Black Bean Chipolte sandwich...it was just ok. It was kinda crumbly, so I had to eat it with a knife and fork, which I suppose is what people in polite company do, but my old roommates are not polite! LOL My friends really enjoyed their lunch, so I was the odd man out. It was good...just something I wouldn't probably order again.

    Had a reservation and got right in. Food was fine but my burger and fries was $17 (little high) - server was rushed and inattentive at times. They decided to set up for brunch for the next day at 8 pm so lots of loud scraping of tables and chairs around us. I asked if they were closing and wanted us to leave and they said no. Overall it was fine.

    I was looking. Forward to trying this restaurant. Unfortunately it was horrible. The food was terrible as well as the service. My food came over 5 minutes after everyone else’s. The other person in my party’s order was not correct. She ordered no potatoes and double vegetable. Rather than just bringing her a second vegetable they took her entire plate and did not return for 10 minutes. When the plate was returned to the table the steak was awful. As a side note I asked the manager to change one of the tv channels to watch the end of the football game. She said she would do it and never did. Restaurant was loud and chaotic. I will not be returning or recommending this restaurant to anyone.

    Fantastic! We had chicken satay appetizer - amazing! Whitefish was delicious and plentiful. Perch was great (not as good as whitefish). And my husband had the nacho appetizer as a meal - perfect. Can't say enough good things. Will definitely be back!

    The food was very good. All four of us enjoyed our meals and agreed we'd order our dishes again. And all of them were pretty big portions. I suppose prices were well in line with other restaurants, but I guess I have to get used to the post-'rona, inflation higher costs.

    My husband and I went to try out the place for his birthday. The ambiance was good and the place is nicely situated on the lake, but the food was of poor quality. I got the cherry BBQ glazed Salmon and the orzo rice tasted like refrigerate and my husband got the Bone in Ribeye and it was of poor quality! He ended taking it home and feeding it to our dog. Overpriced in my opinion. You can have better food in Longhorn rather than there! Will not recommend!
