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

I liked the vegetarian selections. Great service, wonderful decor. Very clean, very modern. Great experience. My friends really liked their drinks and their sushi.

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

Having recently changed hands and names for the most part it feels the same when dining here. As some have said it is a great location right downtown. The biggest change i noticed was in the bar area where the booths and tvs are gone and they've added a bathroom on that side. The service was decent, I think she... More

It's kind of the best location in Culver, with a view of the lake, but there seems to be a downward trend from when it was the Edgewater. The new owner kind of cleaned it out, so it feels a bit empty, and industrial, whereas it felt cozy before. Someone said he is going for a Chicago feel, but people... More

Hadn't been in since the change to the Lakehouse (Used to be Edgewater). The decor is neat and reflective of local highlights (Culver Academy). The food was nothing exciting. I had the ahi tuna sandwich and felt like it needed something for some flavor. My friend had the Caesar salad with blackened salmon and said it was ok, but nothing... More
