Nice place, good service

The atmosphere and the service was quite nice. I liked the historical architecture. The food was good but unfortunately, due to dietary restrictions, I was limited in my food choices. All in all, I've had a nice dinner and a nice time.

7 of us had dinner here October 20th, including 3 kids. Let just say we ate here out of conveinence from the distance of our hotel, not out of quality or because this restaurant had excellent reviews. Service was extremely non-existent, our waitress was put off because our kids were slightly loud, she was irritated that we actually asked her... More

Several recent visits to the LakeView House delivered consistently delicious meals. Between the regular menu and the daily specials you can be sure to find what you are in the mood for. For causual and friendly dining, this continues to be our "go to" place.

One of our favorite restaurants when we visit Burlington! The restaurant is in an old Victorian house build in the mid 1800s, it has a view of Lake Champlain (the restaurant is not on the lake but across the road). It has a nice, comfortable atmosphere, when you enter you feel like you have stepped back in time (and I... More

We should have walked out when we smelt the place and had trouble locating a server. Our mistake. The food was stodgy and not too good. My husband said his pork chop tasted awful. Later he had stomach trouble. I could not recommend this restaurant to anyone.

With views of Lake Champlain, this restaurant is in an old house with a bar and tables area in an enclosed, windowed terrace, an outdoor patio and separate dining rooms. The night we dined, we chose to eat in the bar area where there were lots of locals eating and drinking and watching the baseball game. It was a fun,... More

So we had two simple lunches here both in the bar which the only reason I did not feel I could actually rate the restaurant 5 stars. Our experience in the bar area was just great.

I have dined at this restaurant three times. It is located next to a few hotels along Shelburne Rd. The nice thing is you do not need to drive if you are staying at one of these places. The wait staff each time I was there were friendly. The first two dining experiences were good. The last meal was disappointing.... More
