    Have always enjoyed the location and great servers-need to add a grilled fish sandwich to menu -especially given the lake location

    Mandy was fantastic as what appeared to be the only server as well as the bartender. Couldn’t have asked for better service. The peel and eat shrimp was fantastic. The perch was overcooked and dry and tough, but tasty. The walleye was just so so-so. We will go back to try other items on the menu.

    I am perplexed about the rating of this establishment. We booked this place after reading reviews and saw it was nearly five stars. The location is beautiful, the ambience is amazing, and our service was top notch. However, there is a discrepancy between the price point and quality of food. We ordered an appetizer to share (pierogis), two cups of clam chowder, and a half caesar salad, the fish and chips, mushroom and leek gnocchi, and the maple chicken sandwich. The food was very bland. All of the fried items tasted overly of oil. Perhaps this was an off night? I chose to bring my husband here for his birthday and I was so disappointed that he couldn’t eat his dinner (fish and chips) because it tasted like nothing. If you’re looking for a view and ambience above flavor and food quality this might be the place.

    Cole is the best server and very attentive. We had the sea bass special for valentine's day and it was the best sea best we have had. We have enjoyed this restaurant a few times and find it to be the best for creativity and and the best dining experience. Keep up the great work.

    Normally my husband and I have a great experience here. But we went on Mardi Gras night, the night before Valentine's when it was busy. My husband got burnt toast (like straight up charred black on one side), no seasoning on his gnocchi, and my mahi mahi was overcooked (had to actually cut it, it did not just flake apart with a fork). Took almost 10 minutes before anyone came to take our order also. On the plus side the live music was nice, lake views were great, the hush puppies were amazing as always, and the drinks were strong!

    Come here quite often-staff and servers are always great-twin filets were very disappointing- have had before- they were more like sirloins and not good ones and over seasoned-wife’s walleye was undercooked in spots-not a cheap venue-need to correct to keep our business

    This was our first time here since new ownership has been in place and we are so happy to have discovered it! Our food was excellent - I had twin filets cooked to perfection and my husband had the Walleye. We enjoyed soup and salad as well and everything was top notch! I believe our server's name was Cole - but my memory isn't always what it used to be! At any rate, he was personable and attentive and had some great menu suggestions. The atmosphere was perfect for a quiet dinner. I can't wait to see the place in the summer with the patio overlooking the lake. We highly recommend it and have already told several friends.

    Weather was the only uncooperative aspect of our visit. One of our party has celiac disease and the waitress and cook were very helpful in offering suggestions for lunch. Walleye bites and homemade chips were delicious. Burger was really greasy. Would we go back? Most likely for cocktails and appetizers.

    Good was delicious! I had salmon, one had perch & 2 had walleye. All raved! The shrimp cocktail was great! We ordered 2 to share. Fantastic service, very personable. Noise level was a bit much, sometimes difficult to hear our conversations. Can’t wait to try the outdoor seating in the summer!

    The fish and fries with hushpuppies looked delish,but not much flavor. The beer batter on the fish wasn't light it was very bready. I will go back when we can sit outside and try something different on the menu. The waitress and hostess were very nice and service overall was good.

    We had an amazing early Sunday dinner at The Lake House. The staff were great from the moment we walked in. We were greeted right away and got a table with a lake view. Cole was our server and bartender! He makes a great old fashioned BTW. I had the tri-tip sandwich (Cole's recommendation) and it was so good. My wife had the caesar salad with salmon and she loved it. Our other two companions had the Bouy Burger and they were very happy! We also tried the walleye bites and the corn fritters apps - so good! The lake house is like a cool vacation spot - you look over the lake and it just feels special. Great local spot that you need to try.

    We recently dined at The Lake House Kitchen and Bar (formerly Twin Lakes Tavern) in Twin Lakes, OH. While being a bar/restaurant, the atmosphere was very much relaxed and friendly. The menu is diverse with a number of fish/seafood options. The table service was exceptional. Cole was very attentive and offered great suggestions. I highly recommend The Lake House Kitchen + Bar for your next night out.
