Excellent breakfast! We had dinner there as well. My dinner was delicious, but my husband's was not at all what we expected.

Dear Marci, I am so happy that you enjoyed your breakfast and dinner too. I’m not sure, but it doesn’t sound like your husband liked his dinner as much as you did yours. I’m sorry. I know that sometimes a guest will try a new dish that is not familiar to them, picturing it a certain way in their mind... More

My husband and I stopped here with another couple for a Monday morning breakfast to end a great Lake Erie weekend. We were warmly greeted by the hostess and promptly seated. Our waitress was friendly and the food was wonderful. After we ate we walked the grounds, admired the flowers and enjoyed the view of the lake. Lots of seating... More

Watching the winds blow the murky lake water onto the rocky shore was the perfect setting for a fall dinner. The Lake House's patios has given way to the p l wasn't interior of Crosswind. Still offering the Lake House wines to pair with meals. A pork belly appetizer served with a seasonal slaw and mustard was featured. My husband... More

We stayed at the Lakehouse Inn for the weekend to visit the local wineries. We had a reservation. The restaurant is very nice and not very big. There is a nice view of Lake Erie. Our dinner was awesome but a few selections were pricey. Our breakfast was included with our package. The breakfast was also very good, but not... More

We have been looking forward to dining here after reading about the food on Trip Advisor. When we arrived for a late lunch, we were warmly greeted (something I really appreciate!) by several of your staff and immediately seated!

Dear Marilyn, Thank you for such a glowing report.

My husband and I recently dined at Crosswinds and had an overall good experience. We had planned to eat at a local winery, but they didn't take reservations and we drove past this place and they did. Since it was Saturday and the winery told us to expect to wait, we came here. The place is quite loud inside, but... More

The food is good. But just because you find a niche for your place doesn't mean you should be outrageous with the price tag. This is Geneva Ohio, not LA. The chef seems to be full of himself, but everyone else seemed nice. We ate breakfast there...Shirley was the sweetest! Made our day.

Dear Renee, I’m so glad that you found us unique and that everyone treated you kindly. As to your concern about prices, I know that it may be more that what you thought it should be, but it is related to the cost of having property right on the edge of the lake as well as sourcing our local foods...

The owner is a complete a-hole!!!!! The staff was nice but he was a COMPLETE JERK!!!! We PAID for a wine tour which included this winery. The wine tour was from 1-6. Apparently their wine tastings ended at 4:30 (maybe they shouldn't have signed up for the wine tour then). We arrived at 4:50, the owner yelled at the staff... More

Dear Gwen, I cannot apologize enough for your experience that occurred. We failed in our lack of communication with our staff and everyone else about this special promotion which caused this confusion as we normally don’t offer tastings until 6 p.m. as dinner service starts at 5:00 p.m. Again, my sincere apologies for the mix up – we will definitely...
