Food was pretty good, not stellar, but okay. Wait staff not particularly friendly or attentive. Very pretty view during the daylight hours.

The view from the window seating is beautiful, especially in the fall. We both had a steak and they were both cooked to perfection. The mashed potatoes were very tasty but very small portion. The green beans were average at best. The service was outstanding.

Can't say that I was blown away by the food, but it wasn't bad. We only had time to go there once while we were at the resort. Too much to do! I would have gone back and given it another go.

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

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.
