Dining that fit the great view of Leuka Lake

Appetizer PIG wings as tasty as I have had. Great as a meal in itself. Our meals also were very good. Great seats, service tops and awesome view while dining.

Drove by at dinner time and there were no other restaurants in the area, so we gave it a try. The food was good, but geez it was expensive. If bread and a salad had been included I would have said it was high, but without! Although it was nearly empty, service was sluggish.

This is my favorite place with a view of Keuka Lake. The owner is such a nice guy and we can always count on good food here. Some of the places on the lake are inconsistent and ownership can change, but Lakeside is a place we can trust for great food, service, and view. We usually ask for Jenn as... More

A great place to kick back and enjoy a delicious dinner on their deck by the water. The view is fantastic of Keuka's Bluff and the staff are great as well. If you want to dine by the water, this is a place to put on your list. if your prefer dining inside, there is plenty of room to do... More

Visited the Lakeside Restaurant on a beautiful fall afternoon doing a family wine and brewery tour on the west side of Keuka Lake. We had a party of 9 and I was nervous about planning this visit because there are some particular people amongst the group. Since the summertime is the busiest time for this area I was concerned about... More

We have a cottage on Keuka lake and love to boat to lunch or dinner. On July 2, 2014, excited about the new menu, we went for my husband's birthday. We approached the outside bar for a drink. While my husband and sister ordered I went to see the hostess about seating. She was no where to be found. I... More

The Lakeside has expansive decks with lots of tables for dining al fresco. The view of the lake is beautiful. The new menu is excellent. There are several salads that can be ordered in full or half size. My husband and I had the Voodoo Stew and it was fantastic - chock full of fresh shrimp and crab in a... More

Stopped on a weekday for lunch and enjoyed a fantastic meal. Great drinks, delicious food, our waitress Taber was fantastic. I have never been disappointed by Lakeside and will continue to return again and again.

Went to Lakeside for lunch the Friday before Labor Day after posting on Facebook's I Love Keuka group asking for the best restaurant on the water. Docked our boat (docks are a little difficult to maneuver into and we have a small ski boat) and then were greeted by a friendly hostess who let us pick our table on the... More

On a gorgeous summer evening, my daughter and I had ribs and wings on the deck overlooking a beautiful part of Keuka Lake just as the sun was setting. It was a great meal with excellent service from a very friendly staff. We really enjoyed a relaxing and tasty dinner experience.
