Fun and inviting

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... read 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

My wife and I decided to have our reception at Lakeside Lodge in Island Park, Idaho. We met with Shawn, the owner/manager and Sheri, his wife and decided this was the place we wanted to invite all 100 or so of our friends and family to share the wonderful day with us. We met with Shawn, and believe it or... More

This was the third time in 3 weeks that we dined at the restaurant at Lakeside Lodge. Each time it gets better! The manager goes out of his way to ensure the guests are satisfied. This resort is also where the locals go. I've had the daily special two of the times we've been and it has been fantastic. We... More

From the time we called late in the afternoon till right before we checked out, the staff was very helpful. We made several phone calls to help us with directions to making extra sure that our meals were perfect, to advise on where to shop locally. The lodge is tucked away all to itself right on the lake. You just... More
