Food was Amazing - Service was Slow

The food here was terrific. We ate here with a group of about 114 people. We had to wait 20 minutes just to have someone come to the host stand to ask us how many people were in our party and then another 10 minutes to be seated in an empty restaurant. The service was very slow and unorganized... read more

The atmosphere, surroundings, sunset, views of the lake were all spectacular. The food was just "OK." If you go, it should not be for the food. The portions were also small for the price. The service was good. When you are done with your dinner, talk at walk around the grounds and decks of the Lakehouse Inn. It truly is... More

I was happy to read that we delighted your sense of sight as you enjoyed the grounds, the decks, the sunset and the views. I was not happy to read that you didn’t find as much delight in your dinner. I’m not sure if you tried something new that you didn’t like and that’s why you didn’t enjoy it. I... More

Food was good but portions were small for the price. The outside seating looked amazing but the weather did not cooperate. Overall, nice but I don't think it was worth the price.

We visited the winery here and really enjoyed the Reisling. It was great sitting on the patio with wonderful views. Dinner at the Crosswinds Grille was excellent. I highly recommend the scallops and the crab cakes. Service was outstanding!

A fine restaurant does not just happen, it is a team effort. Management, wait and kitchen staff all working together to create a product that satisfies the customer. It happens here at Crosswinds.

Food was so good and the wine was excellent! My friend and I did the wine tasting and tasted quite a few wines before deciding on the Peach wine.

We enjoyed our meal, but it was expensive. The atmosphere was nice... overlooking the lake. We were able to walk there from our hotel. Also, the winery is on the same property, so after dinner we walked down to the outdoor area overlooking the lake and had a glass of wine. It is a beautiful view.
