We came across this place and decided to try it out. Nice setting with a lake (creek) view. The place hasn't been updated in a while, it is nothing fancy. What mattered to us was that the service was friendly and quick, the food was good and not over priced. Our steaks were tender, my husband ordered a side of... More

There's retro and there there's uh-oh. It must have been renovated in the mid eighties without anything since. Its dark and feels dirty but I'm not sure that it is actually dirty. To top it off, the music is from the seventies and eighties and was easy listening stuff even for that era. The food was nothing special and not... More

Go here if you like drunks, fights, rude people, and don't mind rubbing shoulders with people on drugs.

Horrible experience! First, they tried to seat us in a dark, dingy and empty room and when I asked if we could be seated in the room with all the windows, the hostess grabbed the menus in a huff and took us back. There was an elderly lady sweeping the whole time and came right up to our table practically... More

We like Lakeview. We have never had bad service and food is better than at a lot of other places. I love the salad bar cause it's iceberg,I hate dark green lettuce and I like the macaroni salad. All in all it's not bad.

Went for my birthday. Had the salad bar and a steak as did everyone else. All three people that went with us got sick so we called the owner to tell them and all she said was "Hope you feel better." We will never eat there again.

Ok, so technically, I'm not supposed to like this place. The steak is kinda fried in a weird way, the salad bar is kinda smallish, the wait staff is a little country. But, I love it. I love going there. I think the problem is that people hear "steak house" and imagine some guy in a tux opening a $100... More

My family have enjoyed Lakeview for years and years. The steaks have always come out just as we requested. Can't get a better New York Strip anywhere. My daughter lives in Virginia and she always wants to go there when she comes home. The salad bar is small, but it is the best. It is a family owned business, and... More

Had a church group gathering. Took 20-30 minutes for all in the group to be served their meal by the waiting staff. My steak was almost raw and 80% gristle! To be somewhat fair, after reading a few of the reviews this might have been a great little restaurant a number of years ago. Not today. Don't waste your money!

I normally don't write reviews but after reading some of these, I had to express my opinion. I moved in the area about 2 years ago and have been a patron of this restaurant since my arrival. I have to agree, it needs updating! It's dark, old and has a certain smell of times past. Fortunately I don't go there... More
