At the Lake House, we’re short on formalities and big on making you feel comfortable. Stop by for an easy lunch on the deck with blue skies and a cool breeze. Linger over a romantic dinner and drinks in the warm glow of our fireplace. Enjoy the view of a snow-covered lake. Whether you’re with your boss or your best friend, you’re going to have a wonderful time, every time, at the Lake House. Around here, people love the water. When you take a look at the Lake House, this becomes abundantly clear (our location on the marina is no accident). Naturally, we have gorgeous views of the lake. And when the weather is good and enticing, we have an ample bar and deck outside where you can enjoy the breeze - and shoot the breeze with an al fresco lunch or dinner. We’ve even built this attitude into our bar: while it starts out inside, it ends up outside closer to the water. Come see for yourself.

    Had the best meal ever here on NYE, so returned for Valentine’s Day. Was quite disappointed with the Valentine’s meal- the stuffed lobster was tiny and way too salty, and the meat was mushy. The chocolate mousse was presented nicely, but was frozen and seemed pre-bought. Not what we would expect from the price.

    The view, location, quietness, the atmosphere, and the food was great. We had a wonderful waitress!! The only bad comment is our waitress was to occupied and didnt return to our table until way after we needed refills or needed anything else.

    Whitefish was excellent. Sides also very good. Friendly and attentive wait staff. Hostess went aboveboard to accommodate, even after Open Table made error in reservation. This is an error in the Open Table system that has existed for years and they seem to be unable to resolve it. Open Table has my cell number attached to a different name, perhaps someone who previously had that number.

    Had one of the best meals EVER at the Lake House on New Year’s Eve! Got the steak off their usual menu, and it was seriously in the Top 2 steaks I’ve ever had. Juicy, flavorful, delicious, cooked exactly to order. The raspberry crème brûlée made me swoon. My martini was so perfect I ordered another. Kudos to the Lake House, already one of our favorite restaurants, for a truely perfect meal!!

    Our high top reservation was not showing in the system when we arrived and we were seated at a table next to the entrance and had to wait another hour to be seated in the proper area. Not what I would expect from a restaurant that is supposed to be top notch. The views and ambiance are spectacular but this was honestly one of the worst dining experiences that I’ve ever had.

    Had our annual date night xmas dinner here this year. Our server, Rebekah, was outstanding! Enjoyed the atmosphere, but unfortunately there was a big party in banquet room...so we would hear loud dancing music mixed with the xmas music in the restaurant. The white chicken chili was excellent and salad was good. The perch dinner was good as well. But, the Chicken Caprese was horrible...I should have complained. On the menu is says...Chicken breast with Risotto. It should have said Risotto with a couple slices of chicken and few pieces of tomato. I literately had a pound of risotto, which covered my plate with a few dried out slices of chicken. And, not even good risotto...the only flavor was garlic. Lava cake was also not worth it. Overall, we enjoyed ourselves anyway...glad we had ordered the soup and salad! Again, our server was great and even gave us a free loaf of the bread, since my husband loved it so much! We will be back this summer.

    Not a big restaurant which is a bonus in my book. It has a very good vibe being right on the water. Friendly staff would have gotten 5 stars but our waitress was new and made a few mistakes. The food and drinks were excellent.

    Service, food and presentation is outstanding! We will definitely try to return next year for Thanksgiving. Riley is the example of the perfect server. Rebekah is a very talented and knowledgable bartender. All the employees act as a well trained, unified group. Each one constantly looking for a customer or coworker to help or for something that needs to be done. Very well managed. It was a great afternoon. Thanks to all!

    I was greeted graciously upon entering and my husband and I were ushered to our table where upon our server immediately introduced herself and took our drink orders while we waited for the rest of our party. We had several servers who were extremely attentive in refilling water, removing empty plates and checking if more drink orders were needed. They did so nonchalantly without interrupting our table conversation. Exceedingly professional! The food was exceptional! Choices included a variety of breads, fruits, pork, beef with au jus, turkey and gravy, variety of potatoes and fancy vegetables, presented delectably which added to the enjoyment of the meal. Desserts offered a variety of cheese cakes, pies and cakes. The noise level was minimal. Can’t say enough positives about the Thanksgiving buffet. We will be back next year!

    The best Thanksgiving buffet by far! The food was outstanding, an incredible variety to choose from. I only wish I could have had a little doggie bag!! New idea…fill a small to go container for $20!! The staff were all so very friendly. Never had to ask for anything, refills magically appeared, dirty plates quickly disappeared. Thank you all for spending your holiday with us.

    We love to dine here when visiting from Chicago— about once a month or so. We always enjoy what The Lake House has to offer and this time was no exception! We requested Kodi and she was amazing as always! She always knows just what we want and is so considerate, right down to making sure our food is packed in sturdier boxes as we have a 3 hour drive home. This time we checked out the new Fall menu and ordered the beef short ribs and the seasonal risotto! Both were excellent and the Michigan cherry chocolate martini was on point, too! We will continue to frequent this place when in town.
