Bungalow Lakehouse is excellent! The food is excellent. The wine selections are wonderful. Matt at the bar behind the reception is personable, knowledgeable and and very friendly. He made the food and atmosphere that much better. The new flatbread pizzas are amazing. We will be back soon.

Welcoming as it was a business meeting which lasted 3 hrs. We ordered 4 Sauvignon blanc, a red and 4 pints of Blue Moon over a Rueben & Pulled Pork sandwiches as well as an entree salad, which all tasted okay.

Ambience is great especially with the outdoor seating overlooking the lake with an overhang! This place is great for a lunch spot or Happy Hour!

Untrained staff, making basic mistakes in service. Possibly due to lack of qualified job seekers as a result of COVID.

Excellent service! Overall good meal! I had the lamb and my girlfriend had the salmon. The lamb was a little rough but the salmon, veggies, and mashed potatoes were excellent! Really nice quiet atmosphere.

Came here for brunch with my family. Nice, quiet atmosphere. Menu has good choices without being overwhelming. Mainly we ordered eggs made in different varieties. All the dishes were well prepared. The coffee was really nice. Very good service.

Beautiful view from the outdoor patio overlooking the lake. Great burgers.
Hostess was rather rude & inhospitable though. After dropping off my wife and then parking the car, the hostess simply stated my wife had gone up the stairs to the table without escorting me or even telling me which table she was at.

In the past we had a fantastic waitress, who unfortunately is no longer there. This time the waiter was unfriendly with a bit of an attitude. So its the luck of the draw with the service at this place.

Great view of a large pond from the verranda. Hesters were on which made us too hot. The noise even being "outside " was hard to hear the two other people at my table

Out of three dishes ordered, only the salad was good. The other two dishes did not taste good. We had reservations at 645PM. We finally got sat down at 730pm.

Food was terrific. We had some issues with where they initially wanted to seat us, but as soon as they learned what the issues were, they quickly moved to accommodate us. Food was excellent, serivce was great. The only real issue was that it was extremely loud where we were sitting - hard to have a conversation with four people. Two could handle it, but that was only by leaning over towards one another. I would definitely recommend it

The food and outside terrace were great. Happy hour drinks were tasty and only $5. The server was a bit slow ( had to ask for water 3 times) and appeared rather inexperienced but was very pleasant.

Enjoyed Easter Brunch with my family. The weather lending to a fabulous day on the patio. Food was amazing as always! My husband thoroughly enjoyed the grilled lamp chops and the steak was cooked perfect! This is one of our family and friends favorite places to dine.

Was very smoky smelling inside smelled like I was in an old bowling alley. Apparently you can smoke in the bar upstairs so it just kind of permeates the whole restaurant unfortunate. The food was good however

This was our first time for brunch and tried several things and shared. The Mimosa Flight was outstanding and a great value! We also had the blueberry pancakes, the breakfast pizza and Mexicali wrap. To top it off, we got a side of biscuits and gravy as well as homefries. Next time I'm going for one of the Benedicts!

Bungalow Lakehouse is a consistently great experience. They have various rooms, so you can choose from a music and a bar atmosphere, a quiet dining experience, or an outdoor patio (with great heating). The service is exceptional.

The food and service at the Lakehouse are wonderful. The noise on the enclosed back porch is almost too much for my husband who wears hearing aids. We can’t wait til the weather gets warmer, and they can take down the plastic. But we enjoy the food so much, we’ll be back!

We went for Valentines Day dinner. I love Bungalows. Everything I have ever ordered there has been very tasty!They had a pre-selected menu for a set price that we chose from. It was very good. The only downfall was that the dessert that was part of the menu was no longer available...kind of a disappointment . But other than that, the meal was really good. We had great service as well!

This restaurant never disappoints, and is our go-to place for quiet dinners all the way up to sports night watching games with friends.... Bungalow Lakehouse is large enough to accommodate whatever you want to do. And the food is magnificent and comes out quickly.

Quick dinner with friend after Friday shopping at Dulles Town Center. I was in the mood for a burger and I was surprised to find some excellent choices. My friend went with the prime rib sandwich that was loaded with cheddar and grilled onions. I opted for the brisket burger, sans bun. Topped with a tasty, crunchy coleslaw, grilled onions and cheddar, plenty to handle with a fork and knife. Service was attentive and prompt. Surprising, quirky independent restaurant with a varied menu. I’ll definitely visit again if I am in the area.

I am definitely a fan of this place. Food is creat at reasonable prices and nicely spread out for a safe dining experience. Whether we sit outside on their huuuge deck, in the sports bar watching our favorite game or in the dining rooms for date night, they always deliver great food at reasonable prices. Service is what I’d expect at a far more expensive restaurant! I love the chili and it’s made without beans so healthy for low carb option! I always get a bowl so I can have leftovers for lunch. Portion sizes on everything are generous! We come at least once a week! Great local gem! Hubby likes the wings and the pulled pork sandwich the best.

Sat at the bar with Matt. He is a joy as a waiter- efficient, friendly, concerned and has an excellent business like attitude. We came back the next week due to him and great steaks.

We had an early dinner on the porch which has plastic on the sides and a large heater along the ceiling. Diners were social distanced, but the noise level was quite high with people talking and laughing. All in all it was still a very good evening and we will be back. Its one of the only places we’ve found where we feel very safe to eat out.
