Thoroughly enjoyed it!

The Lake-View House is our "go to" restaurant when heading to or home from Burlington. There are many options for seating (depending what you are in the mood for), the staff is always friendly, there is a wide variety to choose from on the menu, and the food is consistently yummy. Love the fish tacos!

I looked at their website and was impressed, My husband called to make reservations and they gave the impression that this was probably not necessary, but took one anyway. Wish we had read Tripadvisor before we went as our experience mirrored so many other bad ones. The server was very pleasant, but when our food was delivered my husband's chicken... More

While visiting the Burlington area, we stopped at the Lakeview House for a late lunch in the middle of the week. We weren't sure if they'd be serving at the late hour we were there. There were no other customers in the place, but as I said, it was after 3:00 and late for lunch. After wandering around the rooms... More

I've been to this location with co-workers more than a few times for lunch and have usually been very pleased. Last night my wife and I stopped by for some dinner as she had never been there. The dinner crowd was very small for a Friday night. Seemed to be mostly tourists and visitors to the area. Service was good.... More

Decided to eat at the Lake View for a couple of reasons. Had a work friend that raved about the location, plus it was less than 50 feet from the hotel where I was staying for the evening. Arrived early for dinner I guess and was seated in the bar. Nice, cool vibe. Sort of expected to see Paul Revere... More

Recently we were in Burlington and had a delightful dinner at Lakeview House. When I returned home I realized that I had lost my favorite earmuffs ( a necessity this year!). The manager called to say they found them and were reuniting them with their owner! Some places may have ignored my pleas but these people care. And it shows... More

My wife and I met relatives here for dinner. It was a Wednesday night and there was no wait to be seated. Our server was very nice and we took our time ordering.

I have recently relocated to south Burlington and have had the pleasure of finding a great bar/restaurant with not only great food but incredible service as well....I had been there a whopping 2 times when I requested they stock Avion tequila, and literally the next time I was there it was as well....

Thank you Bill! We are always glad to get customer feedback on products, and I am very happy to try to order anything that can make their experience here better. Not only was I happy to bring in the new tequila, but other customers were happy as well and have seemed to enjoy your suggestion. Thank you for your input,... More

This is a great place if you are looking for good pub food and are ready to spend a little more time then planned there. The restaurant is a pub with pub food and some seafood specialties. I order a steak that was cooked perfectly. The only problem with this place is the service. There were three servers around but... More
