    I had lunch early on Saturday before it got dark because I wanted to see the beautiful views of the lake and watch fisherman launch their boats. The restaurant wasn’t packed yet (although 2 large parties came in right after me), the food is simple, yet finely crafted and presented. Definitely a must dining experience, if you’re nearby.

    Food was very good but, not amazed for the price. Dining room got very loud as it filled up. Asked if the pasta was homemade and server wasn't sure. They had a random "$5 side of shrimp" special. Hoping to go back in the summer when the view is better. Menu needs a little help.
    The Lakehouse at Deer CreekResponded on February 19, 2024
    Kurtido, we are happy to hear you enjoyed the food and appreciate the feedback concerning your dining experience. We apologize concerning the miscommunication with the pasta. Funaros Perfect Pasta does an excellent job providing artisanal (made with care and respect) pastas. We will take into consideration how the Oyster Rockefeller, Shrimp Scampi, and Side of Shrimp special may be random or felt random by execution. We look forward to serving you again and are always thankful your patronage.

    I’ve enjoyed Lakehouse every time I’ve been there however, last night for the Valentine’s Day dinner, the food was sub par, undercooked, and overpriced. I will come back, but not for a selective menu event.

    Beautiful view of the sunset behind mount Timpanogos reflected on the lake. Elegantly remodeled space once you're in the restaurant. Friendly and attentive staff. Delicious food--steak, barbacoa tacos, and lobster nachos were our favorites. Mocktails were also really yummy/fun. We've gone twice as Heber locals and look forward to future visits!

    I would have given the restaurant a higher rating except for the hint of an unpleasant odor when initially walking in. The ambiance was nice, the staff extremely attentive and helpful. I had the ribeye which had excellent taste, and was above average. My date had the chicken and she felt it was highly average at best. I would love to try it again in the summer when the days are longer and outdoor seating is available.
    The Lakehouse at Deer CreekResponded on January 26, 2024
    JohnH, It sounds like the night was nearly a hit. We share the sentiments when it comes to dining. Image and aroma are important and if something is off then theres conflict. Going out for dinner should be free of conflict. Thankfully the issue has been identified and addressed. All notes taken and feedback shared with our Chef. We look forward to serving you next time in! Cheers.

    This place was amazing. We tried it for the first time for our anniversary. We ordered the Lobster nachos, they were so good!! The cheese sauce was incredible! We also ordered the halibut and a steak with chimichurri. We asked for salt, both dishes needed a little. After adding salt, both dishes were a 10/10! The desserts were delicious!!! We also got 2 mocktails that were so yummy!! The service was amazing!! Seriously this restaurant was special and we can’t wait to go back!!! We plan on recommending all our friends/family to try this place out!! It is worth the drive.

    First came here during the summer of 2023 and never knew about the restaurant. Dining in December, same year, it feels like a new restaurant by the menu alone. I had Spanish mussels and Osso Bucco with a side of roasted carrots; The coursing and flavors were on point. I am a meat and potato guy and when the basics are done right then only an old fashioned finishes me off. So far had it all here. Will update when I revisit.

    Our server did not understand social cues and was very odd. He would interrupt conversations and tell us we were wrong. There was a mouse running around during our meal. The best parts were the actual building and views. The cauliflower tacos and risotto were very good. The main meal of chicken was dry and bland. I would recommend for a friend and give them tips on what to order.

    Have been to Lakehouse on multiple occasions. He staff is friendly and very accommodating, the food is fantastic, and the ambience is absolutely top-tier. I would recommend trying out the lobster nachos and the assortment of cocktails. Make the time to stop by Deer Creek and check this gem out.

    Our waiter, Andrew, was delightful! He made great recommendations and even created a cocktail for us, now called the Gonzo Margarita! We both had the halibut and it was spectacular! Perfectly cooked with delicious flavors surrounding it. We sat by the fire and it was romantic and charming. Love The Lakehouse and will definitely be back!
