Excellent Food, Wonderful Atmosphere

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

On early Sat. morning of the art fair we stopped by for breakfast. The buffet was sparce - and they were out of bacon! I just had scrambled eggs - nothing else was appealing. My friend said the sausage was terrible but she enjoyed the biscuit. There was no variety from which to choose at all - and the place... More

This historic Inn is right in the heart of historic Mount Dora, steps away from beautiful Lake Dora, the Orange Blossom Cannonball Train Depot and Seaplane, Segway and ecological Premier Boat Tours. The Inn built in 1883 is on the National; register of Historic Places. It is the oldest continuously operated hotel in Florida. We were a group of seventeen... More

We happened upon the Lakeside Inn while exploring Mount Dora (a beautiful little town), and decided to have lunch there. The tables were all taken so we ate at the bar. We were very pleased with the quality of food and the service. I agree with a previous comment that the selection of draft beers is limited, but they had... More

Food was OK. Nothing special except the size of servings----way too much food. Service was very slow. Had to flag-down the waitress for refills, etc.

We enjoyed the bar and lounge at this inn in the past, with its cozy atmosphere by the fireplace. Came here once again, but found it lacking any choice of draft beer - only two offered and they were out of one of the two for more than a couple of days. Happened last time, too and we settled for... More
