Great food, slightly slow service

My four girlfriends and I ate here following a Premier boat ride. We were. Little hesitant as it doesn't have glowing reviews. However we were pleasantly surprised that the food was outstanding. The setting was glorious as we say outside on the front porch. The only reason I didn't give five out of... read more

We had an early dinner at the formal Lakeside Inn restaurant after poking around the tourist shops in Mount Dora, Meal and Service was excellent with a reasonable price for such a nice setting.

A friend and I drove over from St. Augustine just for a night and had a wonderful time exploring Mt. Dora. Lakeside Inn was once magnificent, I imagine, but funds from being on the National Historic Registry haven't been accessed or utilized. I know it would take a considerable sum in order to tackle the renovations but it would be... More

We had breakfast there. My husband had a western omelet and I had 2 egg over easy with bacon. We also had two coffees, and the bill was $31.00.

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 eat with friends or spouse.... 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
