Beautiful view , good food

Extremely pleasant venue for dinner. Beautiful view of lake. Food is good, service pleasant. Appetizers very good, trout very good. Probably as good food as can be found in Lake Lure. Can't imagine a prettier venue.

The dinner, service, and view were all outstanding! Several of us had a veal dish which was outstanding and others enjoyed their steaks, salmon, and crab cakes. We eat their often and most people agree that this is the best place to eat on Lake Lure. Give it a try!

We stayed at the Fox run time share for a week first week of December, The restaurant only opens a few days in low season but it's very hard to know which day of the week it will be open. The location is on the lake. Unfortunately if you pretend to see the lake at night... forget it. It's so... More

Took my family and in laws here for dinner. It's a very nice resort so I was expecting the meal to also be exceptional. Everyone was polite but the food was rather bland and lackluster, everyone in our party seemed to agree. Half of my family is from the south and still thought it was rather odd and awkward for...

A major disappointment. Based on the menu AND prices one would expect upscale dining & upscale surroundings. Lakeview delivers neither. Two entrées were inedible & three cocktails were made wrong.

We were staying in a condo at Rumbling Bald Resort, and the advertised Prime Rib Buffet at Lakeview Restaurant appealed to us. The Prime Rib was OK, but the other choices were nothing spectacular. The view was nice.

The dining room was full on this Thursday, so we ate in the bar. Perfect service. Brandy the bartender was on top of everything and the service was excellent. The trout was pan seared in a little butter with some brown sugar and almonds on top. It came straight from the pan to the table. Wonderful! Well done - we'll... More

Great view of lake; we were there for Prime Rib buffet night; though the prime rib itself was fairly decent, the rest of the "buffet" left much to be desired. Felt very much like a retirement home (for the very elderly) meal. Would not return.

As a resident of Rumbling Bald I feel it is important for my family to patronize our restaurants. We are always happy when we do. The view at Lakeview is gorgeous. The food is delicious too. I sometimes have a difficult time getting an outdoor table and the manager, Kathy, is always as helpful and accommodating as she can possibly... More
