The Lakeview house is an 1850 farm house that has been lovingly restored. Old meets new in the bar area where you can catch the game on one of several flat screen TV's while surrounded by antiques adorning the walls. Meals are made from scratch, and weather permitting, can be enjoyed on the outdoor patio right next to the garden where many of the ingredients for dishes are picked daily. A banquet room upstairs can comfortably hold up to 80 people with lake and mountain vistas as the backdrop.

Wonderful atmosphere. Mediocre meal.

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. My wife and I both had clam chowder and fish and chips. My cousin also had fish and chips and his wife had baked haddock. The food... More

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.

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

My wife and I went here for an evening meal and were pleasantly surprised by the atmosphere and decor. It was like going back in time to a Vermont farmhouse (which it was at one time). The menu is a regular "pub" menu and service though friendly was slow, as there was only one server when we were there. The... More

Hello! I apologize for the slower service the last time you were in. I take full responsibility for that. It is at a time of the year where we try to balance staffing with the amount of predicted business, and I must have failed that night. I hope that if you are back in the area you'll try us once...

We stopped at the Lake-view House after a day of sightseeing in the Burlington area. The atmosphere is nice. Its an older house which has been renovated into a restaurant and bar. On the night we stopped in, there was a private Halloween party going on on the second floor. You could hear some of the music from it downstairs... More

Thank you for stopping in! Indeed, it seems our restaurant at one time had a reputation of being needing a bit of, shall we say, housekeeping.
