Great find for lunch

Tried The Lake Grill with a friend for lunch. Very happy with our entree and the sticky toffee pudding was the best we have had in a long time. This will be regular spot added to our lunch locales.

It's been awhile since our last visit, so we thought we would come by again. The menu hasn't changed - offering a good selection of interesting appetizers, pastas and other entrees. It specializes in seafood and has a number of dishes featuring shrimp. Both of our meals were quite good as before. All the seafood was very fresh and properly... More

Went here for a Christmas party, booked in advance. Service was exceptionally slow, the food was for the most part ok (depending on the dish) but not for the price point. After arriving (there were 10 of us) we waited over 30 minutes before a server came (actually we flagged her over) there were empty glasses on the table and... More

It's so hard to find decent restaurants in the Durham Region. Whitby and Oshawa primarily have nothing but chain outlets. I was so hoping that The Lake Grill would be so much more than it was. Perhaps my expectations were too high. They had a featured prix fix "Christmas Menu" at a reasonable price and we decided to select from... More

I took a friend to the Lake Grill for a lunch. There were business people there and senior groups enjoying a meal. The service was friendly and efficient. We could see the chefs at work in the background. The layout of the restaurant is comfortable for a quiet chat or a group enjoying time together. The prices are reasonable and... More

This is a lovely quirky restaurant. Food is very well prepared and the staff and helpful and pleasant. The menu is very varied. I have visited twice, once as part of a large group and once with my DH. Everyone in the large group was very happy with their meal and my husband is already planning another visit for fish... More

My husband, aunt and I had a lovely dinner at the Lake Grill recently.. my aunt is a semi-regular here and raves about this restaurant, so we knew it would be great! I must say, we were not disappointed and we had a great dinner --- the chef even created a vegetarian, gluten-free pasta for me! The ambience of the... More

I like to go to this restaurant because it is privately owned by a chef . Food is always well prepared and presented. It's a small and simple restaurant but cozy and clean. Stuff is always the same and they are very polite and helpful.

Read up on this place and I've always wanted to check it out. My wife is a vegetarian but still eat fish lol. I will admit they seemed short staffed but the servers that were there were hustling and getting the job done. The place looked pretty nice nothing too fancy. If anyone from that restaurant is paying attention, hiring... More
