Watched the server on a cell phone scoop stale tortilla chips from a open drawer. The place was empty on a Saturday night which should have been the first tip something was wrong. Terrible food.

We visit about once per month and today's visit was the worst. New server sat at our table to take our order, we had to ask for water, even had to get up and ask for our check. The food was really bad. Lobster smelled like it was going bad and the margaritas were average. The salsa is very watery,... More

Worst dinner experience ever! I decided to take the family out to dinner. We are big on Mexican food so we decided to visit this restaurant. When we arrived there was no one to greet us and a couple that was at the bar said "just take a seat anywhere", so we did. The restaurant was freezing cold like the... More

We went searching for a Mexican Restaurant, and came across Casita Del Lago, and we so excited! When our food arrived we were even more excited, everything was delicious, and hot! We can't wait to go back.

We should have walked away upon seeing only two other diners in the place at 615 on a Thursday. But, we had a groupon that needed to be used. Salsa tasted like jar spaghetti sauce with some onions and cilantro thrown in. Our server (the owner?) was cold and unfriendly to the point that we felt we were bothering him.... More

I will preface my remarks with the fact that we used to really enjoy this place. It has steadily gone downhill. The last time we ate there, we threw most of the food away. They used to have great salsa - now just so-so. Margaritas were awesome - now they barely put any tequila in it. Service has never been... More

We had a plentiful and reasonably priced dinner at Casita Del Lago. Granted, it was a rainy, Monday night in January, but we were the only people in the restaurant, which was a strange feeling. The restaurant is located in an old hotel from the 30s, so it has kind of an odd feel anyway. I sympathized with our waitress,... More

We had enjoyable dinner with friends at Casita Del Lago. It can best be described as a neighborhood restaurant in old downtown Avon Lake. The chips and salsa were excellent. The entrees were good to very good and portion size was generous. Pricing was attractive especially with a coupon promotion. Service was efficient. The space was not dirty but it... More

The Casita del Lago is hidden end away in the shopping center without a lot of flashy advertising. The service was exceptional especially since it was a quiet evening. And as for fresh, we waited as the cook whipped us up some guacamole! Yum!
