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.

I've been to the same place three times. The first was when I arranged a company dinner. Although I was under impressed by the food, I found the waiter to be interested in the food and for having the opportunity to take care of us. Ok, thinking perhaps I was preoccupied with conversation, I decided to give it another try... More

Restaurant is convenient to a few hotels in same parking lot and food is good but bland. Waitress adequate but not attentive, only filled one of four water glasses that were empty, drink refills slow etc.

Walked into the building and turned around and left. It is an old renovated house. As soon as we walked inside the door it smelled musty. No hostess did we see o r anyone else. We decided not to eat there so cannot comment further on it

Wonderful dinner & excellent service in a lovely setting -- patio with beautiful plantings and bird feeder. Restaurant needs a sign outside. We would not have discovered this place if not for Trip Advisor!

Food was good, but maybe the menu is a little too expansive. It would be better if they reduced this a bit in order to improve the quality of the food offerings. Food was good, but a bit too salty, or garlicky, depending on the dish you order. It is located beside the HIE, so it's is definitely convenient.

We were staying next door & walked over since we didn't want to drive anywhere. We were greeted by Tim who turned out to be our waiter. We got seated immediately & Tim proceeded to explain the local beer selection. Once a decision was made, we were served very quickly. I ordered the clam chowder & found it very tasty.... More

Hi Neal, I'm very sorry to hear that you had a bad experience at the restaurant. I know that sometimes our side vegetable is served with a little too much of the white wine sauce for some people's liking, but we would never add any water to the mashed potato! They are indeed hand mashed with cheddar added, but to... More
