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!

If you are looking for a simple, relaxing place to have a lunch - this is the place. It's an outside restaurant so keep this in mind if the weather is too hot or cold. The menu is simple and fresh. Pair this with pleasant service from a great wait staff, and you have the perfect combination for an enjoyable... More

The food is just fine most of the time - I think the hamburgers are good I am told the fish tacos also - don't like the new chicken tacos at all they taste funny... the setting is really nice and the staff friendly and efficient !!

This was our first visit and we will definitely be back. The menu is a little limited and the prices are on the higher side. But the view is great, food and drinks are very good (I loved the Cuban sandwich). The service was very good and friendly. Our dog got her water bowl and enjoyed her time on the... More

This was a peasant surprise , we were staying at the Trianon Hotel and just wanted a few drinks and something to eat. So we tried the Lake House and it was very good . The cheeseburger was one of the best that I've had in a long time. Service was very good and the bartender was excellent .

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.
