The food was amazing. I love seafood and not only were the selections great but the taste was fabulous. In terms of the service, it was good...but we did have one hiccup. Despite having reservations we had to wait for over an HOUR to be seated. That's because the restaurant is small, and no one was leaving their tables. So... More

This is not our first visit to the Lake House. We have celebrated our Wedding Anniversary here for the last 4 years. We love the atmosphere. The food is fabulous. My husband had the mushroom risotto and skirt steak. I had the tomato bisque and the pork chop. Everything was perfect. Looking forward to going back.

My wife and I recently are here to celebrate a wedding anniversary. We were very pleased with our dining experience. The bar is well stocked and inviting for a pre-dinner drink. The restaurant was very clean and the staff was very friendly. Our meals were both very good and also reasonably priced. I especially enjoyed the Suckling Pig appetizer. The... More

Recently, my boyfriend took me for a romantic dinner to the Lake House. I had wished it was warmer out because the outdoor area was so charming, but the indoor dining room was lovely as well. Our table had loose pillows to get cozy on and a roaring fireplace to gaze upon. We were first served fresh baked mini baguettes... More

We went there for dinner after visiting fire island. The food and service are good. The restaurant has a nice view but it is better to see it during the day.

This place had been recommended to us by several people and it did not disappoint. The food was different than most other high end restaurants and everything we had was delicious. The appetizer blue fin tuna tartar was outstanding and my wife enjoyed the organic salad. The Roasted Berkshire pork chop was flavorful and I had a venison special which... More

I've eaten dinner here many times and it's always perfect, well, Today we went for their Sunday brunch and it was to die for. Wow, The service was perfect and the bonus is some music performed by a trio. This is not a buffet brunch, this is full service and perfect. You can see the menu online and it's all... More

This restaurant has a lovely view of the water, which of course, can only be seen if you are there early enough in the evening, before it gets dark. There is no parking lot, so you must find parking on the street. Everyone was very pleasant except, unfortunately, our waiter. Perhaps he was just having a bad day, but I... More
