Cannot recommend Lakehouse more. Mark is the owner and he is not one to sit in the back of the restaurant. He is constantly walking around checking in on his patrons. His attention to detail is one of the reasons Lakehouse is such a great place. Whether you want a burger or a full dinner it's there. I'm partial to... More

Good food, good service, friendly patrons. The server was especially helpful with my active 2 year old granddaughter when we were seated. Will definitely dine again at Lakehouse Grille.

Went in during alumni weekend and had the peanut butter barbecue ribs special. I was served a bunch of bones with hardly any meat on them. It was like the meat fell off before serving them or in the preparation. I was horribly disappointed! If your wait staff can realize the dish looks that bad and shouldn't be served, shame... More

I've been visiting Culver most weekends since July and have been out to the local restaurants for dinner quite a bit, including The Lakehouse Grill several times. To me, this restaurant is clearly a couple of notches above the other big dinner restaurants in town, with both the food quality and the service deserving of recognition. Either would be remarkable,... More

Stopped in for lunch during a cross country meet. Walking distance from Culver. When we first got there, they weren't ready for the volume of business for the weekend. They did a good job of calling in help. Delicious broasted chicken! The fries were seasoned and excellent. Walleye dinner was very good. Good selection of beers on tap: craft beer... More

The appetizer bacon wrapped sea scallops were outstanding. I had the firecracker shrimp salad and there were a ton of shrimp! It was excellent. My husband had a small filet and he said it was good. Our waitress was very attentive. Love the decor and view!

The Lakehouse Grille got new owners and a new name in 2012, but kept the same Culver/Academy/sailing/corner bar ambience and much of the same menu, including freshly made sushi. Located across from the town park and beach, a short walk from Culver Military Academy, The Lakehouse Grille, formerly The Edgewater, is a natural gathering place for locals, alums, and a... More
