Ranked #82 of 160 Restaurants in Bonita Springs
Cuisines: American, Hamburgers, Seafood
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!

My wife had the grouper sandwich with pineapple slaw................another great dish. The other person had a ceasar salad with mahi mahi on top. Our server was extremely friendly & helpful. He let us set our pace in dining with them.... More

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

What can I say worst meal we've had in a long time. From the soggy fish and chips to the weak drinks. I understand that we came in close to closing but there's no excuse for bad service and bad food. I will say that they attempted to make it right but we decided not to tri out luck a... More

We do encourage a relaxed and fun atmosphere for the Lake House Bar and Grill but it is a professional working environment and our staff is trained to treat our guests in that manner. This incident was addressed with the waitress and she understands that her actions did not create a comfortable situation for the guest. I am sorry that... More

Its tucked away in a nice location that you probably wouldn't even know was there. The Lake House is a great place to grab drinks and the bartenders are awesome. The clientele is a mix of hotel guests, Bonita Bay residents and other assorted locals but it is a lot of fun. I haven't eaten there but the food looks... More
