We had family in from Belleville, Ontario and they had read about The Lake House in a magazine and wanted to go. Lucky for us that it’s in our neighbourhood and we know it well. We had a delicious lunch there and they loved it! Beautiful!
We had a lovely lunch in this beautiful setting. Our server was excellent; very patient with four women who haven't seen each other in two years catching up. We will be back. Unlimited free parking is a big bonus.
Amazing food and restaurant ambiance / service plus fantastic view of the lake! What else can you ask for!
We were celebrating an engagement and we gave them a heads up before arriving, but was seated at the closest table to the bathroom and front entrance. They did rectify it fairly quickly, after we said something, but I would have rather booked another night and gotten a table by the window, than to be put at a table near the bathroom and front door. As an aside, there was no acknowledgement of the engagement being celebrated. Overall we love the Lake House ambiance, food and location; we will go back again, but when you are spending many hundreds of dollars for a dinner, you want everything to be as good as it can be, right from the start.
Overall it was a very good dining experience. The open dining room was so very loud & noisy so our hostess kindly moved us to the back room where we could visit with friends we hadn’t seen for sometime.
Excellent food and service. We will definitely be back.
Very good food
Fantastic and delicious food. The nicest and most friendly staff, really makes you want to go back
Due to pandemic rules QR scan and presenting ID was very smooth - service was incredible- having dietary restrictions I’m usually limited to a few items on the menu but not at The Lakehouse- I was able to choose any item - hats off to Chef - first time I was able to have a delicious Chocolate Dessert - sorbet is typically the only dessert I can have and usually decline. Happy Birthday Me!!!
Delicious food and amazing service as always. Our server (I think Sierra) was knowledgeable, friendly, and efficient.
Food is good but They forgot all my requests. Like all of it. Lol
Great views, lovely ambiance, amazing food
Great food, but service was a bit slow. More than anything, the noise level was much too high. The acoustics are terrible, and we were literally shouting at each other over dinner the entire night.
Our service was very slow. We waited 45 min to have our server present at our table. The menu doesn’t have a great selection for dinner.
Very loud atmosphere! We had to raise our voices to have a conversation with our friends.
Fast and friendly service
Excellent location--sitting on the edge of a lake.
Excellent food and services.
My wife and I were celebrating our 48th Anniversary. We had a great time.
The Lake House had THE best burger in town. One of these days I'll have to try somethning else on the menu.
The window seating here is lovely, looking out over the lake. This together with the quiet and spacious interior makes for great ambience and wuiet conversation. The service here is first class - helpful, concerned, efficient and coordinated, giving the impression of a well-experienced team. Lastly, but most important, the food was superbly done. - The available choices, the quality and presentation were all excellent and cooked perfectly as ordered. This was an awesome dining experience.
Beautiful setting! Food was excellent. Nice variety on menu. Staff were excellent.
Manager is rude and un accommodating. This wasn’t our first experience with this manager. Even with our vaccination proof(which I already think is a breach of our rights), the manager seemed to really enjoy checking everyone’s personal information and educating us on exactly what the upcoming rules should be. Darcy was our server and saved the experience as he was extremely professional and accommodating.
We went for lunch. There is a more limited menu for lunch. It covers most of the bases. Would have liked to see more salad options. We normally go for dinner which has more selections. The food is always great and environmentally responsible. You pay a little more but the location, view, quiet surrounding and great service. It is worth it you are looking for something special. Has been our favourite restaurant for me years.
Excellent as always!
Wonderful romantic restaurant for an anniversary dinner.
Everything about our evening was a 10/10. Can’t wait to go back again.
Excellent anniversary dinner for the two of us. Great professional service that obviously adjusts to the needs of the diners and the occasion. After two anniversary dinners here it will be our go to place for special occasions.
We love this place for a nice lunch. The staff is always friendly and professional with consistently excellent food and a view that’s hard to beat. Our favourite place in the area!
The daily soup and quiche special was a delicious lunch. The service was spot on, and lovely view of the lake on a sunny fall day made it a special time with friends. Thank you, Lake House!
Excellent place to dine. Really enjoyed the atmosphere and our server was excellent. We will be back for sure!
Lovely local spot...nice wine list, the halibut was great although the cabbage served with it was a bit too hard for my liking. The new dessert, lemon chiffon cake with blackberry sauce was creative and amazing! Nice ambience...a bit noisy maybe that's why I didn't hear any music. Would definitely go again.
I had such a wonderful evening with my friend at the Lakehouse. Beautiful setting, food was delicious, server was quietly on top of everything. Felt very safe during covid.
Phenomenal explosion of flavours, great, knowledgeable staff
The Lake House has become my go to for lunch. The food and service is consistently very good and you cannot beat the lovely views over the lake.
bread was not fresh.
we ask for more bread and one bun was given us.
overall the meal was not what we expected from what we had heard about this restaurant
Out for dinner. Our first time there but won’t be our last. We had the crusted halibut and the ribeye, both were fantastic. The waiter gave us the right amount of attention, drinks were good and the view on the outdoor patio was perfect. Be back soon!!
Great service. Amazing food and lovely atmosphere
Lakehouse has always been one of our Favorite restaurants The food the service and the wine selection We're outstanding Our waiter Eve's Was simply fantastic Hats off to another great meal This It was for our anniversary so it was very special Cheers Phil
We had a lovely evening at the Lake House (as usual). The bison and lamb were delicious! We started with the Charcuterie Board and loved the mustard melon! The Beet Carpaccio salad was very good and definitely enough for 2 to share. For dessert, we tried the Sticky Toffee Pudding and the Apple Pie. Both were excellent. Our waiter recommended a wine that went well with both of our entrees. His service was perfect. Just the right amount of conversation. All-in-all a perfect evening. Thank you!
We found the service and food to be all very good. We would go back again.
Restaurant views are unreal, food is spectacular; and our waiter Darcy was super attentive, but not over-bearing or annoying which was amazing. Definitely worth the money
