It doesn't look like much on the outside, but the Lakeview House is beautiful inside with its wood panelled walls, Tiffany fixtures and leaded windows. The eating area is cosy and has both booths and tables. There is an adjacent bar area and outdoor dining on the terrace. I opted for the garlic shrimp scampi over linguini, garlic toast and... More

I like the bar, usually eat there, when we eat. Servers and bar tenders are ok. I like the seating in the bar area, if you sit at a table.

We were pleasantly surprised with The Lake View House. We stayed at the adjacent Holiday Inn Express and didn't feel like going out again so we ventured over to the Lake View House. The food was excellent as was the service. We had the Cobb Salad and a Chicken BLT. We were very happy that they have all local beers... More

This restaurant is adjacent to the Holiday Inn Express in South Burlington VT. What a great find. Beautiful inside and great food. We loved the salmon, which was cooked to perfection, the rocket salad, and the switchback beer. Our server Holly was both friendly and efficient. We would have eaten there again, but alas they were closed on Sunday.

We had a nice dinner and cocktails on the outdoor patio. The food was excellent and our waitress was wonderful! We were actually allowed to just have cocktails on the patio for well over an hour before we ordered dinner. (Most places with outdoor seating only allow you to EAT, and not just have drinks). The food was fabulous. And... More

We visited on a Friday night, aware that there were three weddings happening that weekend. The restaurant was busy but certainly not hectic. Our water glasses were only partially filled because there wasn't sufficient water in the pitcher- in order to get more, I had to request a fill. Not an impressive start. We both had the Atlantic baked haddock... More

Visited this restaurant years ago and looked forward to our return visit. We were not disappointed! Same great service and delectable food served in a lovely atmosphere. The restaurant is actually a turn of the century home complete with warm wood accents throughout. The food is consistently good, not a huge menu, but quality is better than quantity. Their warm...

My Ribeye was tough and grizzly, there as no way that was grilled or even pan fried...it alsmot has a "steamed" appearance to it (t was grayish in color, and the shrimp was rubbery. My husbands meatloaf looked like something that came out of a can & was refrigerator cold. The Lobster bisque tasted very similar to cream of mushroom... More

Hadn't been here in years. Over the last thirty years the restaurants that resided here have come and gone, some good, some bad. On a nice early summer eve, we decided to give Lakeview a try, thought we'd take advantage of their outdoor seating. Good decision. Veried menu, well prepared, excellent service, and a fresh herb and vegetable garden out... More
