Nicely appointed restaurant with a stunning view! Food was good but expected something a little more upscale for the price. Service was slow but friendly.

Was looking for a romantic place to have dinner one night and decided to just try the Lakeview since we did not know the area. Great Choice. We were seated at a table inside with a view of the lake so we got to watch the boats going by and the paddle boarders. We were greeted by a very friendly... More

I reviewed this restaurant exactly 1 year ago and raved about it. The service manager then, Ronnie Gooch, was a fabulous host and ran a tight ship: fresh ingredients, creative recipes, excellent preparation. Presently under new leadership, my second visit was a disaster. I ordered the Lobster Bisque. A 8 last year. This year, the pot must have boiled down... More

I would like to first say that I have never taught or trained our staff in anyway to not give change back, in fact they are trained to never ask if the customer... More

Nothing to brag about - your basic eggs, omelets, meats, French toast, potatoes, pastries. The brunch items were soup, Spring mix lettuce and a pasta dish. And a chocolate fountain with fruit. No carving station. Simple, but a nice view. Wouldn't go again; would check out the Esmeralda in Lake Lure/Bat Cave next time.

Brunch at the Lakeview was disappointing for the price. Meh. Nothing at all special, and fairly limited selection. The view, however, was lovely.

This is a restaurant that has some characteristics of fine dining with prices between Outback and Ruth's Chris but has staff/management right out of Denny's. The managers spent a great deal of time around the bar seemingly watching NASCAR. Wife ordered crab cakes w/extra shrimp. This was delicious. I asked the waitress if the cook(s) were proficient at grilling steaks... More
