Had a wonderful experience here for a dinner date night. Service was wonderful and the food was amazing from the appetizers to dessert. Highly recommend the crab cakes for an appetizer and the Osso Buco for an entree! Divine!

I booked this reservation for my 50th birthday with friends. The restaurant was accommodating to my friends who set up balloons, etc. before our reservation time. Drinks and food, and service was perfect. The only thing I'd complain about would be my drinks. They charged a separate charge for my gin and my tonic. $15 apiece was a bit more than I usually pay for a G&T. The atmosphere and service and food were outstanding though!

Have been to Sunday brunch a lot over the past serval years and had nothing good to say. This past Sunday we were disappointed. Nobody explained that the buffet was no longer available because of Coronavirus. Waited 30 min to have a server to come to table to explain that it was menu only. Took another 20 min to have order taken and to get water. Took another 10 min to get our drinks. Took another 35 to get appetizer. Food came out about 10-15 after appetizer. Waiter only refilled drinks 2 times the whole while we was there so to say unlimited mimosas is not so. Took 15-20 minutes to receive check. This was such a let down to celebrate our anniversary. We will not recommend going until restaurant goes back to buffet.

We sat next to a very noisy table and could barely have any conversation. Food was just okay. Staff was pretty alert and I think tries hard, but our meal (filets) and desserts (stale) were truly just okay. Love the location and everything else, but I believe the food is overrated.

My husband and I had reservations for an early dinner on a Friday night, and we had a great experience! The food is always good. Our server was attentive, gave us space for conversation, and offered excellent suggestions. We had fried green tomatoes, cocktails, and both had swordfish over crawfish étouffée. Divine! We sat outside and enjoyed the lovely garden and lake views.

food and drinks amazing. good service. our only issue was the volume of chatter inside the restaurant. hard to hear server, hard to hear each other...not much in there to absorb sound. overall, excellent meal and all three of us plan to come back asap.

Absolutely delicious meal for the three of us. My 88 yr old mother & 99 yr old step dad are used to excellent New Orleans food, and they were delighted with the food, sauces and price! I thought it was fabulous also. It’s just a bit noisy and hard to hear but I’m sure That’s the hard floors reverberating sound. Five stars!

Even though it was hot all day, sitting outside on their porch for dinner with ceiling fans going and the lake breeze, it was very pleasant last night for our Anniversary dinner . And, there was good spacing between the tables.

For my wife and I, we had:
- We shared a cup of the corn
- I had the Gulf Fish Meuniere ( amberjack) with pecans, haricot verts, and whipped potatoes - this was excellent;
- My wife had a special seared freshly caught bluefin tuna with grilled watermelon
- For dessert, we had the Chocolate pudding cake that was fantastic to finish off our very enjoyable dinner.

Service was excellent - Eli R. did a great job helping us.

The Lakehouse provided for a great dining brunch experience. Everyone in our party enjoyed their food. The server was great too. The ambience of the restaurant is very nice as it is across the street from and has a great view of the Lake. Highly recommend.

Surprisingly festive atmosphere on this Wednesday evening! Very good service and food. Upstairs balcony would be the preferred place to sit. May be the best place to sit on the Northshore since you have a great view of the lake!

Let me begin by saying that the service was extreme and very mindful of keeping all customers safe during this pandemic. Prime location and the menu offered yu several options, we were a table of three and all ordered different things from the menu. Presentation was exceptional as well as the food. Looking forward to going back.

Small umbrella and we were sweating while trying to eat and enjoy our brunch

The dessert came and it melted very quickly
