We specialize in keeping you happy! Our menu ranges from Burgers, Steaks, and Seafood, to Sushi on the weekend! Our extensive bar has 16 beers on draft and the largest collection of liquor around! We also have drink and food specials daily. The Dining Room features a soaring ceiling which houses a spectacular 20' C-Scow sailboat, rigged and ready to embark on Lake Max. The walls feature funky original surfboard art and super-sized advertising art that ranges from the bizarre to the nostalgic. The Lakehouse Grille is Culver's favorite restaurant & bar for friends and families to meet for any occasion. Enjoy a family outing or business dinner in this informal dining atmosphere. The lake is in full view from both dining areas giving it the feeling of a coastal, laid back environment.

Our first visit to The Lakehouse Grill but definitely not our last. I Decided on the tilapia special and hubby had chicken. Also had nachos to start things off. All were excellent. They bring bread (and refills) with oil and I could easily get full on that. It was hard deciding which beer to try they had so many choices.... More

We've only been here once and found it to be a positive, enjoyable experience. We had the chips and peach salsa appetizer, which was very good. I had the the shrimp and scallop penne, which again was very tasty and very good. Hubs tried the NY strip and while he enjoyed it, he said he'd had better. The service was... More

Our server was very polite and very helpful. When my husband didn't know which beer to order, she offered us samples of a couple of beers. She also gave us lots of info on the menu selections as well as the special that was offered that evening. We thoroughly enjoyed our food, our drinks and our desert!

Eaten here several times. Recommend the bisque - very yummy. The pork tenderloin sandwich is best I've ever had. Try a real Indiana treat. Can't beat the views. If you want to catch a game the bar has several large flat screen TVs.. Patio is large with great views also. You really have a view of the lake from every... More

Stopped after seeing the community play. So did many others but we did not wait long for a seat. We both ordered the chicken but were told others had ordered it as well so they would be running out. Switched to Cobb salad and salmon. Salad was alright but the salmon was a tiny piece served totally unadorned on a... More

With diners from infants to oldies, this casual restaurant strikes a family friendly tone without being boring or cookie cutter. Went there on a crowded Friday night without a reservation, but after a short wait had a comfortable booth and a great waiter. Dining companions had crab cakes ("delicious") and a French dip sandwich ("perfect"). Personable waiter kept the table... More
