The Lakehouse at Deer Creek has been named Utah's most unique dining experience. The restaurant features acclaimed Chef Tamara Stanger's locally focused "Utah Heritage Cuisine" in the incomparable setting of the shores of Deer Creek, with breathtaking shoreside views of the Deer Creek Reservoir and Mount Timpanogos.

The Lakehouse is open year-round and offers a seasonal menu focused on the bounty of our local farmers and ranchers, as well as unique ingredients foraged by Chef Tamara herself. We have a beautiful upstairs bar, a large indoor dining area with a mountain cabin vibe, and one of the largest outdoor patios in the state.

The Lakehouse is a multisensory experience. Even the beautiful drive through the canyons coming from Utah County, Salt Lake, or Park City plays into the overall experience. We pride ourselves in supporting local businesses and showcasing the incredible meat, produce, liquors, and beers the state of Utah has to offer.

    It’s a lovely place and a perfect setting. The service was great and our server was very attentive. The food we ordered was a little disappointing and it could be what we ordered. We’ll try it again in the summer and sit on the patio. It has a beautiful view.

    Loved the restaurant setting. My only problem is they didn’t have appetizers that would suit vegans, vegetarians. Most everything on the menu was meat. I got the cauliflower steak which was delicious and the vegetables. I would have loved to see a nice salad under the appetizers instead I got it on my main course plate with everything else. Very overwhelming with so much on my plate that it disrupted the presentation of the food. The cold Caesar salad was beside hot vegetables so that wilted the lettuce.

    Our second visit to The Lakehouse at Deer Creek was just as tasty and memorable as the first. I love that this restaurant specializes in meats that aren’t found on most menus. My rabbit gnocchi was delicious as was my husband’s bison meatloaf. Saving room for dessert is a must. The prickly pear pie did not disappoint. I think the prices are appropriate for the types of meats served. The menu also noted that there’s a 9% surcharge since the restaurant is located at a state park. I’m glad to support our state parks in such a delicious way. There is a kid’s menu, but I think it’s more of a date night, or special occasion restaurant. However, if the sitter cancels, there’s a handy backup option available. Children definitely won’t feel unwelcome. The staff were all very attentive and friendly. We’ll definitely return.

    New find and worth the drive. We got to experience local specialties. It's a short drive from the resorts. Don't miss the turnoff. You'll be happy you didn't. My daughter is vegetarian and was happy. My husband tried the provision pie with boar for the first time. I had a generous filet. Good service, good food, good choice

    I was frankly a little disappointed given the outstanding reviews it got. It was worth a try but I wouldn’t go back. I thought it was overpriced for what we ordered. Additionally, it was our anniversary and even though they were made aware of that it would have been a nice touch on their part to acknowledge that in some way.

    The food and drinks were on par for fine dining and they offered a very unique entrée selection with a variety of veggies and proteins. The service was great and knowledgeable and the ambiance was fantastic for a casual, cold, winter evening out! We will be visiting again to try other menu option!

    Went there for Thanksgiving….what a wonderful experience! I’m a travel nurse so I was unable to spend the day with family. I was welcomed and felt right at home! The duck was wonderful with all the side dishes. The squash pie blew my mind…..I wanted more! I will always cherish Utah…the people are wonderful!!! Thank you

    The ambience was great, as well as the staff. The food felt like very poor quality and was very overpriced. I ordered the wagyu filet and it was the toughest piece of meat I’ve ever eaten. I wish I would’ve said something.

    Perhaps one of the best spots in the Heber valley, but not without some shortcomings. Ambiance is nice if lucky enough to sit by the fire, but center room tables would seem cold. Menu is eclectic and interesting but steak was disappointing. Seems like a flatiron was subbed for filet. Swordfish was outstanding though ~ Wine list is out of sight pricewise. Must be catering to the PJ crowd from nearby Heber Valley airport. IMHO, a place like this should have a baseline of affordable wines, not junk but $50 - $80 bottles that are more in line with overall impression of the restaurant. 3-4x markup is a turnoff. Regardless, we will return!

    Hidden Gem My wife and I have been fortunate enough to travel and she is a foodie. This was our first visit to Utah and our first meal after landing. Top 5 meal ever. Ever. Ever. Food is original and out of this world. The staff is amazing, genuine and extremely knowledgeable. Ambiance is great, and they have a wonderful wine list. When you go, you have to try the Dinner Pies. Can’t write enough good things about this place and the folks that run it.

    Our waiter was outstanding, very knowledgeable, and the food was delicious. We were hesitant at first driving down to the docks because it is in a State park area but do not hesitate! We enjoyed our meal family style and were able to taste a variety of delicious flavors across all the unique dishes. Bravo!
