First time to dine here and we were very pleased. I had the Salmon with risotto and was fantastic. My wife had the seafood Alfredo, my son had the crab cake entree and my daughter had the burger. All were thoroughly enjoyed. We’ll definitely dine here again:

This restaurant came highly recommended because of the outdoor seating. It was October when we visited so we sat inside. It was quite noisy. The waiter was very nice and was trying but was very busy. I had to ask for the same requests several times. The food was good but I thought overpriced for what we ordered. I'm sure it's lovely sitting outside on the patio in warmer weather but we sat inside and the decor was extremely outdated and the restaurant was very dark. We will probably try it again when we can enjoy some cocktails out on the patio and give this place a second chance

Food was FANTASTIC. Decor nice, but I don't prefer big screen TVs. Would love quiet atmosphere. Servers mostly friendly, but busy. We had to request service numerous times. Great manager...friendly, humble...brought our food to the table and served us several times. If you want excellent food at great prices and can tolerate TVs, worth a try, for sure!

A group of work ladies enjoying lunch. We chose to sit outside on the back porch, which was perfect. Not sure how it would be at night with people smoking on the other end. The inside bar area is very large with pool tables, darts and several tv's. There is a nicer indoor seating area that would be nice for a more formal setting away from the bar.

We found this restaurant on open table after a long day of travel with my mom and husband Taking a chance we drove the four miles from our hotel for dinner. We were seated in the bar which was ok with us. We had Filet Mignon with asparagus and mashed potoatoes. A perfect meal! My husband had a burger which was good and Spring Rolls. The waiter was excellent and even gave us a complimentary dessert to take back to the hotel with us.

Would highly recommend this place!

Bungalow’s is a great place for many type of people. We have always had great food and beverages. They have 5-4 rooms with all different settings. There is the outside covered deck overlooking a lake, large sports bar, cigar bar, mahogany paneled fine restaurant and bar then a light and airy room that is like a grand enclosed brightly painted veranda. If you go to the small mahogany paneled bar ask for Matt.

Bar is good for a crowd looking for drinks, quick bites, sports, tvs and a night out. The dining room is nice and quiet (great place for those hard of hearing) and great for a quality meal and conversation. Would definitely recommend.

This was our first time going to Bungalow, surprisingly, because we have lived in Sterling for 30+ years and had just now decided to give it a try! We were very pleasantly surprised! The atmosphere, the food, the decor were excellent and it was very easy to have a quiet, low-key conversation with my wife during dinner. We both agreed that the prices were very reasonable, which is probably why we over indulged the delicious Caramelized Banana Split for dessert - heaven!!!!

Olivia provided great service and was attentive to my 3-yr-old son.......even responded with a joke when he told her he loved her. 😊

The meals fell short of our expectations, for which the manager handled well.

Bungalow Lakehouse is just a charming venue with great food & very nice service. Our waiter was in training, but he really did a nice job - they had clearly prepped him well.
Hubs is hard to please, so when he pronounced his 'prime rib dip' sandwich as 'very good' I knew we'd be adding this place to our date night rotation.
I had the quesadilla with guacamole & house made salsa - it was just spicy enough to calm my tex-mex cravings.
Many other items on the menu we both want to try - guessing it will all be good.
A co-worker suggested this gem & now I owe her one!

Celebrated my daughter’s birthday. We ate outside. We had reservations but they sat us outside quickly. The waitress was busy with a large group but stopped by frequently to let us know she would be there in a minute. The food was good. My filet was not cooked medium, as I had asked, but it was tender meat and tasted fine. Loved the potatoes. Overall a very positive experience!!

Great nachos. More food than chips! Very good appetizers only thing wrong is they allow cigar smoking on their outside deck. Problem is cigar smell seeps into the restaurant. Hostess said she keeps spraying Febreeze because of all the complaints. Why not be smoke free?

Food was fine. Service was mediocre. Even though the reservation did not specify it was the birthday of one in our party, it was mentioned to the waiter. When dessert was ordered, there was a candle in it, however they forgot to light it or even acknowledge it! Just poor quality overall. Too bad, I've been here before with much better service. It will be a long while before we return.
