Beautiful setting, friendly service, mediocre food

The lodge is right on the shore of the Island Park Reservoir. The bar has been rearranged so that you look out at the lake. Service is very friendly and attentive. The menu is mostly hamburgers, pizzas and sandwiches. The food is decent, but not great.

If you want to get some of the local flavor and are up for a party you need to check this place out. They know how to have a good time!

We enjoyed our visit, but the food was not as good as expected. The service was slow, but the view was beautiful.

I have traveled around the country before, but never quite seen a place like this. I went for appetizers and drinks while watching the sunset, and ended up staying longer than intended. I thought that the bartenders were very friendly and that all the employees enjoyed spending time there. I found myself having pleasant conversations with the college aged server,... More

I felt like I walked into a scene from deliverance. No one at the desk, checked in at the bar. Dirty, scary. Cabins are dark and dreary. It was very unnerving

I just saw a review from July 5, 2011 and had the same experience on July 6, 2013. We waited 2 hours (NO JOKE!!!) with 8 hungry kids. The waitress did bring us crayons for the kids to play with, but then 1:45 hours later came to the table to tell us they were out of pizza. My biggest complaint... More

I annually make a few trips to the Greater Yellowstone area and frequently stop in Island Park. Last summer I dropped in to Lakeside upon hearing of new ownership/management. The new staff was incredibly friendly and made my friends and I feel right at home. The facilities were more clean than in years past. Atmosphere in the Bar was spot... More

My family has owned a cabin in Island Park for about 67 years now and of all the years I have been visiting with them, I have never even known about Lakeside until this year. So I took some friends and family and we drove out to have a nice meal one evening and I was absolutley astonished by what... More

I have made the trip south to Island Park to visit my sister and her family for over 10 years, but had not gone to the Lakeside very often until this year under new management. From the amazing crab we had on the bar side to a wonderful meal with the kids in the restaurant, I would highly recommend a... More
