Ranked #84 of 163 Restaurants in Bonita Springs
Cuisines: American, Hamburgers, Seafood
Description: Great Sandwiches, burgers, and salads. Very fresh and tasty seafood. It is a very casual, outdoor, music playing, pool and lakeside, chill bar / restaurant. It is located by a peaceful lake in Bonita Springs in the Trianon Hotel. It is an outdoor bar / restaurant. Me and my wife have lived in Bonita for 5 years and just stumbled upon it. They have great happy hour specials and the food was surprisingly very good. They have sweet potato fries that you can get with your meal too as a substitution, which was a nice option for us, she loves them! Our waiter was Thomas, he was just awesome. I've never written a review, but he was the happiest and best waiter we have ever had, so we felt it was time to give back to trip advisor. We have used trip advisor on our travels for years. So, hopefully we'll see them on the site some day and this review for Thomas, it was so refreshing to see someone who was a great server and so happy! We'll definitely be back!

“Quick and friendly”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 5, 2013

This restaurant was next to our hotel, great place for a quick bite. Food is yummy ! The cocktails were strong, so I guess it depends on your preference.

“One of my favorites; I always come back”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 3, 2013

The Lakehouse is one of my favorite restaurants, but you have to know when to go. Head down for an early lunch (around 10 in the a.m.) and there's a good chance you'll see an alligator in the water. Make sure you sit by the water. The birds are absolutely beautiful.

The food and service really have varied in the last few years that I've gone. Some days, it's absolutely fantastic. Others, not so much. Once, there were flies all over the place and we could barely eat because we kept having to swat them away. Sometimes they are understaffed and things take a little longer.

Overall, I love it here. The food is always decent and I've seen an alligator about half the time I go.

“Lovely place to eat outdoors.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 28, 2013

This is a tiny outside restaurant outside the Trianon Hotel. They serve lunch and dinner. They have great burgers, salads, hot dogs, fish and chips etc. and you can sit outside on their small lake and enjoy your meal. They have a gator in the lake that will sometimes make his appearance while eating, Numerous tv's for the sports fan. They have a happy hour if you enjoy cocktails.

“Nothing to excite & mosquitoes a problem”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2012

Bar staff showed little interest in us and bar food selection was basic and disappointing, given that this was the only hotel restaurant. Mosquitoes obviously feed well though, judging by other peoples comments and bites

“Awesome food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2012

The salmon del sol and the ruben with sweet potato fries were to die for! The bartenders Erica and Tom were so friendly and provided excellent service!
