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.

    It was our third time for the Thanksgiving buffet and the food was better than ever. Tender, moist turkey, prime rib and all the side dishes and desserts anyone could want.

    Seems overpriced for what you get. I am willing to pay a bit extra for the view, presentation, and great service (Craig?) but the entrees were good - not great. (Their price suggests “great”)

    The Lake HouseResponded on November 23, 2022Thank you for your honest comments, Bruce. We are sorry to hear that our food quality did not meet your expectations. We started offering our winter menu last week and want to hear from our guests. So we can speak with you directly, please email your contact information, including a phone number, to us at roger@parklandmi.c om Thank you!

    Beautiful place, but the sun was blinding coming through the windows. It has such a great view, but we both had to change seats and face the wall. Curtis was an awesome waiter! Very informative and attentive. The food was delicious!

    Nice and quiet. Not real busy but picked up as evening wore on. Good food and good service. Reservations online would only allow us a high top table but when we arrived the place was almost empty. Gave us a regular table for six which was great.

    Started strong, then when the entrees came it was awful and over cooked. Service was not good, server never came back for drinks or when our food came to us till after 10-15 mins. Manager never came out, and was not offer to have our dishes remade. Wouldn’t go back.

    The Lake HouseResponded on October 23, 2022Collin, We wanted to reach out and apologize for your experience you had with us at The Lakehouse Waterfront Grille. We are committed to providing the highest level of service and we missed the mark this time. We really hope we can make this up and earn your business back in the future.

    Excellent food, with attentive advice from our server, Kodi, to take into account my gluten and dairy-free needs. We both had the swordfish special, with a spicy, smoky sauce; the fish was wonderfully flaky and perfectly cooked. I was able to get fruit instead of the rice pilaf, with an great strawberry sorbet for dessert. Highly recommended place to eat!

    The Lake HouseResponded on October 23, 2022Hi, Thank you for taking the time to review us at The Lakehouse Waterfrint Grille. We are so glad to hear that our staff was able to accomadate you to make your experience with us a great one.

    Food was very good; however the salad could have been chilled more. We had the fig crostini and the duck risotto (the day’s special). Both were delicious! Not crowded at 7:30 on a Tuesday during the fall. Nice view of the boats and harbor. So convenient as it sits next to the Shoreline Inn, which is a favorite hotel of mine.

    A beautiful evening at The Lake House with excellent, attentive service. The presentation of the entrees was the best we have seen in a long time and the quality of the food was wonderful. The duck and risotto entree was recommended by our server and it lived up to the expectations. All in all, our table of 4 thought it was a perfect evening including a sunset that was a real treat also.

    Superb gumbo--a real find this far north! The ribs were properly seasoned and plentiful. The bottle of wine I originally ordered was not in stock. My sister-in-law enjoyed the celebratory flaming dessert. Even the sunset was beautiful. We shall return.

    We have tried a few times to go to The Lake House but were unable to get a reservation. We finally got one for Sunday, February 24. We drove the 20+ miles in terrible weather, only to find that they suffered a power outage. We were disappointed that they did not think to call all of the people who had made reservations to warn us.

    My daughter and I recently had dinner at the Lake House to celebrate her 11th birthday with a weekend getaway. We absolutely loved it! I received a call in the afternoon to confirm our reservation and the spelling of her name. When we arrived, a Happy Birthday sign had been printed, signed by the employees, and laid on our table. We had a beautiful waterfront view. The manager also stopped by our table and wished my daughter a happy birthday. I ordered the salmon which came with a variety of options for the side, and my daughter ordered ribs and could substitute the sides with no problem. She was also excited to hear that she could choose any dessert complimentary. She opted for the lemon blueberry cheesecake, and we also shared the chocolate sphere. ALL of our food was exceptional, only to be outshined by the warm hospitality and excellent care from our server. If we should find ourselves in town again, we would most definitely return to the Lake House.
