We enjoyed our drinks in the Tremain Room. Floyd, our waiter, was wonderful. His creativity behind the bar helped to make our experience a lot of fun. We were only doing appetizers which weren't so available at lunch so he helped us work with the menu to split an order. It actually came from the kitchen split for us already.... More

Historic inn on gorgeous lake, stately oaks with flowing Spanish moss. Happy hour at fun tavern and wonderful breakfast on veranda. Could not be better.

We were given a veranda table overlooking the grounds that included the historic buildings and lake. I would go so far as to say that few establishments could surpass this location as a dining venue. The waiter (Alex) was very attentive and skilled at his job and we felt as though we had his full attention. While there was a... More

With our stay at Lakeside, we were given coupons to use for meals which was great! We used one for lunch on Saturday and had an excellent meal and service by Alex. We decided to get breakfast next morning but it didn't go so well. Alex was not working and we sat inside. I have to day service was slow,... More

I made the reservation to coincide with the start of brunch, which I was told was 10:30. We arrived,with my 93 year old mother, to be told that the brunch began at 11:00, which (I was told) was the time I had made the reservation for. The variety of buffet items was very nice, the presentation was lovely, the staff... More

A favorite 'activity' of ours is to spend an hour or so sitting in a rocker on the porch, overlooking Lake Dora. Sunset is perfectly relaxing. Breakfast/brunch is quite lovely in such an atmosphere. The food inside the main restaurant is good, although the service is occasionally slow. The bar is a good place to meet with friends from out... More

We were very excited to dine at the Lakeside Inn, a historical hotel, with a great ambiance and beautiful terrace with a lake view. However, we had to request a server change because our original server was slow and unattentive. I ordered a Caribbean salad, with shrimp, heart of palms, avocado and walnuts. The shrimp were nicely grilled, but the... More

We ate at the Lakeside Inn but did not stay there. This had so much promise. The location is picture perfect overlooking the lake. The grounds are beautiful with a nice long dock out into the lake. You'll want to take lots of pictures. We made reservations for Sunday Brunch but when we arrived, we were told they weren't serving... More

Much to my surprise,many places are closed on Monday. We found several closed. The Inn was open for business and ready with great service. My friend and I had salads, the Florida and a Caesar. Both were great. We also shared a flour less chocolate cake with the most perfect strawberry garnish! Totally enjoyable lunch!
