Description: Great Sandwiches, burgers, and salads. Very fresh and tasty seafood. It is a very casual, outdoor, music playing, pool and lakeside, chill bar / restaurant. It is located by a peaceful lake in Bonita Springs in the Trianon Hotel. It is an outdoor bar / restaurant. Me and my wife have lived in Bonita for 5 years and just stumbled upon it. They have great happy hour specials and the food was surprisingly very good. They have sweet potato fries that you can get with your meal too as a substitution, which was a nice option for us, she loves them! Our waiter was Thomas, he was just awesome. I've never written a review, but he was the happiest and best waiter we have ever had, so we felt it was time to give back to trip advisor. We have used trip advisor on our travels for years. So, hopefully we'll see them on the site some day and this review for Thomas, it was so refreshing to see someone who was a great server and so happy! We'll definitely be back!

The Lakeside Bar and Grille is a pleasant place to have lunch in Bonita Springs. Sitting at the outside high top tables, overlooking the lake, makes it the perfect place for a casual lunch. The wait staff is friendly and attentive. The prices are reasonable, and the food is good. We dined with friends who always have the fish tacos... More

Wonderful location, great sandwiches and salad, fun tropical drinks. Don't feed the alligators adds to the great local vibe.

We often go here for lunch and sit looking over the water. We haven't had a bad meal or service. The prices are good and the service is always friendly. If you want a reasonably priced meal I would recommend you try this place when in Bonita Springs. We haven't gone for dinner yet, but we definitely will.

The tables were sticky. Three of our choices on the menu were not available. The menu only has a few choices. The food we did get was not very good

The Lake House isn't fancy but is a fun place to eat. We have been there several times and always enjoyed it. The ambience is nice. It is all outdoor seating but the fans keep you comfortable even in the hot summer months. The burgers are flavorful and cooked to your request. The appetizers are a good size and two... More

Went for lunch. Grouper tacos were expensive, $15.99, dry overcooked fish with no flavour. The pineapple salsa, served with the tacos consisted of chopped pineapple, period. Coleslaw and grilled cheese were pricey and very medicore. Drinks are served in plastic cups. Nice location but will not return.

Since we stayed in the Trianon and were in the middle of a horrible down pour, we decided to give this restaurant a try due to the great reviews on Yelp. I must state that we arrived 15 min before the kitchen closed (per waiter's very first comment out of his mouth which made us feel like we shouldn't order... More
