I recently attended a meeting at this restaurant, the service as well as the food were very good. I have also been here for evening dinner and I can only say good things. On weekends they also have musical entertainment that you can enjoy while enjoying the meals. A very nice and elegant place to... read more

Get the pancakes. Eggs had an off taste. And, I have never tried to eat such a hard biscuit in my life! Seriously!

Found Lakeside Inn in Mt. Dora as we were traveling and wanted to visit. When we saw a restaurant on the water, we chose the Lakeside Inn as we wanted to sit outdoors near the lake. From here, it went downhill. My husband and I ordered strawberry spinach salads for $14 each which included some chicken, so we expected a... More

This is a beautiful old Inn built in 1883. The front porch is really long and filled with white rockers facing Lake Dora. We spent 2 days in these rockers reading and drinking coffee and enjoying the view. We had both lunch and dinner at the far end of the porch where outside dining was set up. It was enjoyable...

It is quiet, fancy and formal. Food is pretty good. We had our wedding reception here. Perfect for that.

Such a pretty place but incredibly disappointing. We sat on the veranda which could of been pleasant but there was a truck there off loading and setting up tents. Noicy and blocked the veiw of the lake. We could of lived with that but it took an hour to even get a menu and that was because customers at another... More

We had a group of five in the bar area last night. The fire in the fireplace set a very pleasing mood. The furniture is dark and inviting. The food was divine and served in a pleasing manner. We had a wonderful waiter who attended to our every need.

Lovely location. Veranda wonderful. Room needs updating to meet area standards, like flat screen TV, coffee pot. Kleenex at least. Hot water for bathing was limited. Toilet did not flush properly, if after having it looked at. It appears even though busy they do things on the cheap. They need to invest in this wonderful property and bring it up... More

We were staying at the Inn (separate review), so we had breakfast and dinner here out of convenience. The "Eggs Benedict" were a joke, not just cold but the "Hollandaise" had absolutely NO resemblance to Hollandaise. The grits were inedible. Dinner was even worse; the short ribs were dry and tough and the potato casserole was inedible, dry and crusty.... More

Three of us gathered for a simple lunch on the old porch overlooking Lake Dora. Without the clues of modern cars, fashion and manners, it's a scene that could take one back a century. Our server, Christie, was cheerful and efficient. We had cups of gumbo and Cesar salad, both of which were very good, especially the salad with its... More
