“Service was inexcusably slow”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 10, 2014 via mobile

Group of 12 adults and 3 young children in town for a wedding. Made reservations for 5:45. Glad to have dock area and ducks to take kids outside for ridiculously long wait. Some food arrived at 7:15 - a couple meals even longer. Kids had had it. Was food good? Who knew - everyone just ate quickly to get out of there. To add insult, a table of about 10 arrived after us and were done eating before our meals Eve. Came out. We had come on recommendation of desk at lake view golf resort. Recommend avoid at all cost!!

“Eat on the water!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2013

Situated on Cheat Lake in the beautiful mountains, this fun casual restaurant is a great place to catch up with friends. Try hand-cut fries, Italian sandwiches and shrimp. From the looks of things it's a hoppin night spot and has heating lamps to keep patrons warm. The service was wonderful and beer selection rocked.

“Archie's Lakehouse Restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2013

Archie's Lakehouse is arguably the best combined setting and food in Morgantown, West Virginia. Situated on Cheat Lake, the location cannot be better. The menu offers sumptuous choices. I have eaten there more than ten times during the past several years, and the food has always been excellent. We sailed there, had lunch today in mid-October outside in the sun, while enjoying the fall foliage. The service was extraordinary and the food nicely prepared. I recommend this place without reservation. Lucky we live West Virginia!

“Great food and great dining atmosphere!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2013

Enjoyed a nice evening here with friends and the food was fantastic. I had lobster bisque soup, twiced baked potato, brown sugar salmon, pistachio cake and spinach dip. Also my friends had the scallops, spinach salad and grouper which were very good as well they commented. Our waiter was very attentive and I feel bad I dont remember his name , We ate on the deck and heard a great local singer perform. Beautiful evening and enjoyed myself tremendously. Also , from past experience the wings are great!
Would recommend this place to anyone esp if you like a lake atmosphere.

“pleasant evening on lake”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 2013

Not much to look at from outside, but neat nautical décor inside. we sat on deck over water in the marina were it was a little buggy but still pleasant. Very friendly service(Taylor). We has the mussels for appetizer and they were exceptional. My son had the salmon in a brown sugar crust and he almost licked his plate. My shrimp scampi over risotto was very fresh but a little bland. We both had dessert which was very good. I feel this was a great meal at a fair price. There was also a guitar playing singer on deck that evening which added to the overall enjoyment of the night
