The Lakehouse - Mandeville
Lunch: Thursday - Saturday: 11:00am - 2:00pm
Dinner: 5:00pm - 9:00pm
This was the second time we had brunch here and we loved it. We sat upstairs in the walkway and that sucked because we had to go downstairs for the buffet. I just made a few trips so my mom and daughter didn’t have to go up and down the stairs. Overall we had a great time.
We love the Lakehouse. We have been to brunch several times and each time was unique and wonderful. Several of the staff recognize us and say hello each time we are there. Our friends have enjoyed it as well.
We also hosted a special event at the Lakehouse in November 2018 which was outstanding. Our guests could not get over the amazing views at night from the balcony, the exceptional bar and service staff who met our every need, the fabulous food and the absolutely over the top evening. Thank you to everyone at the Lakehouse for exceeding our expectations.
Always an excellent Sunday brunch and weekday lunch place.
I hate to review them because this wasn’t their best night for many reasons. Hoping it gets back to normal.
Our server handled a table of nine women, from happy hour through to dinner, with patience, foresight, and ease; thanks for accommodating our large group so well! Food was excellent, and ambiance perfect.
Brunch was delicious, there was a lot of variety of food, the white chocolate pudding was amazing, the omelets are made to order and the service was great!
Incredible food - INCREDIBLE. And great atmosphere. Loved the half price wine bottle special on Thursday and can't beat eating on the balcony this time of year. Will go back again and again.
This was the perfect venue for our large group brunch. We had several children in our party so being able to immediately be seated and head to the buffet was perfect. Buffet's often don't live up to the hype, but the food was outstanding. Also enjoyed the omelet and carving stations. Can't beat bottomless mimosas. We'll definitely be back.
Co-hosted a bridal brunch on a Saturday morning and everything was delightful! The servers were so friendly, helpful and attentive, the food was excellent, and the atmosphere was perfect. Highly recommend!
We celebrated our son's engagement. Cayman and the staff did an outstanding job.
Lovely lunch on our beautiful lakefront. Enjoyed Shrimp BLT, great service and peaceful setting. Always a nice spot on a pretty day!
This is a pretty place right on the Lake. The staff are friendly. The food is average to good, but not great. It is still a fun place to go with family.
Beautiful building and wonderful location overlooking Lake Ponchartrain in Old Mandeville. Love the area and a surrounding neighborhood is very pleasant. Hope the upstairs was temporarily unavailable due to a party or renovations. Wine list is disappointing but a night at the Lake House is well worth your time! Has a wonderful 40s resort feel that is very enjoyable. Food was solid.
Great view, food, service and music. Noise level was low until the restaurant started filling up.
Food was excellent! Service was great also, but a little slow.
Been a while since wife and I had been to the Lakehouse. Service was great, agreeing to my wife’s special request. Food was excellent and we will return.
Our Dinner at the Lakehouse was fantastic! The food, service and atmosphere were all wonderful. We were treated to a wonderful sunset across Lake Pontchartrain ! We would highly recommend it to family and friends !
Love this place! Absolutely first class service and the food is amazing. This was my first time sitting upstairs and I thought it would be too hard handling the brunch plates and walking up the stairs, but it was not an issue. Beautiful day with beautiful views of the lake. The staff was amazing, as usual, and the food is always perfect! Love the shrimp and grits and bread pudding!! Don't hesitate to book a party or small group or just a couple...…….perfect for all!
We went for Sunday brunch with 3 of our friends and thoroughly enjoyed our experience. The Lakehouse always has delicious gumbo and it was again on this visit. The salads are very tasty and fresh. I really enjoyed their chicken salad and always like their greens, pecans, bleu cheese salad with vinaigrette. Smoked salmon was also a great addition to salads. Their roasted vegetables were delicious. Chicken parmesan was nice as well as shrimp & grits and a cobia with a mushroom sauce. Everyone loved their white chocolate bread pudding. And bottomless mimosas are a big draw. Bloody Mary's for $4 are a good deal. We will be back!
Everything great but live music was a bit too loud. One acoustic guitar [no amplifier] would have been perfect. Service was superb, food was excellent.
Lakehouse has an interesting menu and the dishes are really good. We went early on Saturay evening and there were already several parties having dinner. The restaurant is a combination of an up-scale setting but without pretention. The servers are friendly and attentive, and best of all, the chef is great! Compared with similar restaurants near the lake front, Lakehouse now seems to be the best.
Great service, awesome sunset and great food!
The food and service were beyond excellent!
Both the food as well as the service was excellent.
My husband and I went out to celebrate his birthday. We have small children and do not get this opportunity often, so we were looking forward to dinner. The kitchen was understaffed, our appetizer took a very long time, and then our entree order was wrong. (This would have been understandable if the restaurant was busy - but there were a lot of empty tables) My husband's entree took so long to get out, he ended up watching me eat dinner, then I watched him eat his. No manager ever came over to our table to apologize. Our waiter tried to make it better but he was flustered the entire time. It was unfortunate, as I expected more from the Lakehouse.
Great service and atmosphere! Will definitely be back!
Always a great time and delicious neal at the Lakehouse
We have visited the Lake House on three separate occasions for Sunday Brunch and each experience was outstanding. There is a large variety of salads and cold bites, both breakfast and lunch entree selections on the buffet, soup, made to order omelets, hot fresh Belgian waffles and a carving station. All of this is included in the very reasonable price. Then there are the bottomless champagne, mimosas and poinsettias which are free flowing the entire meal, oh and then there are the yummy deserts also part of the inclusive price. The ambiance is very laid back and relaxed. Our servers never rushed us, in fact quite the opposite, even after we finished our plates they refilled our glasses and pointed out something fresh coming from the kitchen. We truly enjoy the dining experience, and the variety. Each time the soups and entrees have been different and delicious. We love sharing the Lake House with our friends and will be back!
The Lakehouse has it all! Beautiful space with the lake as a backdrop. The food and service are second to none. Great place to have a romantic evening out! The shrimp and corn soup and dark roux gumbo are so delicious that we order it every time. Last night for the first time we tried the andouille crusted bbq shrimp....amazing! My Hereford filet was cooked perfectly and the blue cheese sauce took the dish to the next level! Our server was top notch and he took very good care of us. Can’t wait to go back!
We always love coming here and Greg always makes us feel welcome. Can’t beat the sunset view!!!
Great food and beautiful view with fantastic people. Thanks
Really nice location for Sunday brunch. Live music. Many options for food. Endless mimosa. We were well taken care of by our waitress.
This place is incredible. Great staff. Great views. Great atmosphere. Great food. I hope everyone gets to experience this amazing place at least once.
I understand this is a Mandeville institution but we weren’t overly impressed, mostly because of the service. It took 10 minutes for anyone to acknowledge us when we sat down and that pretty much set the standard for the service throughout the meal. The food was very good, but with so many other great options in the area we probably won’t be back. For a $100 meal for 2 people, I expect better.
Amazing evening with excellent service and food was simply delicious!
For 4 of us we had:
- an heirloom tomato & a peach salad
- an 1840 dinner ( swordfish with bread pudding dessert)
- a swordfish entree
- a Bouillabaise (not a soupy one and excellent)
- a shrimp scampi
- a bottle of JLohr chardonnay
- and lastly a pecan brownie a la mode.
Everything was delicious and Helen did a great job serving us.
We have always enjoyed Sunday brunch at Lakehouse. The food has never disappointed; save room for the bread pudding. There seemed to be more people than usual who wanted a custom built omelette from the station. Suggest a system for people to be able to take a number in these situations otherwise you could peel into a few pages from your latest book.
Fireworks on the Lakefront!
My favorite place in Mandeville. Beautiful place on the lake. It really has the best food. .
Beautiful dining room. The ambiance was quiet & relaxing. The peach salad is a must. Rib eyed steak was cooked to perfection. Martini was tops!
