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.

  • Williamsburg Inspired Christmas Dinner

    $120.00 per person

    Dec 20, 2022 only
    December 20th 6:00 PM 5 Course Tasting Menu + Optional Wine Pairing We are back for our second part of our Dinner Series! This 5 course tasting menu is based on an early American colonial Christmas dinner in 1770 Virginia. Christmas celebrations originated in southern colonies before they became mainstream, in which there was an abundance of hunts, feasts, and parties surrounded by cut greens, boughs of holly, ivy and mistletoe, embellish with pineapple and berries. This will be a unique, multi-sensory dining experience in one of Utah's most beautiful venues. Limited seats available.

    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!

    Food was ok - not amazing. I had the American Wagyu and the steak was overcooked, same with my husbands. It was a very lean cut of meat which i dont generally order, but i decided to try it. The seared vegetables they served with it didnt have any seasoning. Bone marrow mashed potatoes were yummy. We had the scones and they were good, corn fritters were good, glazed carrots good, mashed sweet potatoes blah, fries just average. Atmosphere inside was ok, not really decorated and very basic, but it was nice. Spice cake was really good. Nutella chocolate pie was hard and just not my thing, but it was ok. I was expecting to have a really good meal, but our food the night before at Back40 was much better. I would come again, because it was good, but now i know what to expect :)

    Food was not good. Also, food was not cooked correctly. For example, our Halibut was raw and my wagu steak was very tough for medium rare. The view is amazing but they have to do something about all the mosquitos. We were being eaten alive. The food options were limited. Unfortunately, we will not be returning.

    The Lakehouse at Deer CreekResponded on September 11, 2022Hi there -- Im so sorry to hear about this experience! We have since implemented citronella candles to help with the bugs outside. With the lake environment it's been a challenge to keep them at bay. Ive alerted the chef about the food items and we will do a better job at quality checking our food items (such as tough Wagyu), and being more attentive to the temps of our fish dishes. Thank you for the great feedback and I do hope you consider giving us another chance!

    Our table was in a great spot on the outdoor deck. The food was definitely not worth the price. Three in our party ordered the hamburger, nothing special about the burger $18, better to buy a deluxe burger at a fast food restaurant. Fourth person ordered the trout on a bun. It was ok. Chips were good. Fries like you can buy frozen. Best part of all the food was the squash cake, it was delicious. We drove 1 1/2 hrs to get to the restaurant because we had seen a review on tv. The ride was nice but don’t do it just for the restaurant, won’t be going back.

    The Lakehouse at Deer CreekResponded on September 11, 2022Hey Larry, Im so sorry to hear that you didn't enjoy your time at The Lakehouse. We do pay a 10% concession fee to the state park so our prices are slightly higher to adjust for that. Along with the food inflation and labor shortage we have found it a struggle to find a balance of menu cost. I apologize we didn't live up to the hype and I sincerely hope you give us another chance. Our dinner menu has more creative dishes that could help solve the lack of menu diversity like you mentioned.

    This was my birthday dinner and nothing special was done I suppose this is what they do in Utah because last year at Handle nothing special was done either poor customer service! There were several children screaming and of course the parents did nothing So not an enjoyable experience at all We were told music didn’t start until 7:30 this was not true it started at 6:00 we were told no umbrellas would go up so instead of being seated outside they put us inside so we could not hear the music only unruly brats!

    Sat on the deck with a great view. Plenty of umbrellas to help with providing shade. Top-notch service with wonderful recommendations. The food was really delicious. Only complaint is my husband said his wagyu tenderloin wasn’t as tender asl he thought it should’ve been. We highly recommend this restaurant as a special occasion restaurant because it is a little pricey. We look forward to our next visit.
