For the past several months (I write this in February, 2018), Lake Road has been closed. A lovely space with a wood pizza oven. We were very excited that Dan opened a place here, but unfortunately, it hasn't lasted. Beautiful bar area as well.

Welcome to Lake Road. We're located on exciting James Street North in one of the fastest growing cities in Canada. Lake Road is influenced by the heritage of its neighbourhood. Owner and Executive Chef Dan Megna (host of TV's Hamilton Eats and Real Food Sexy), works with his team to meld old-world flavours of the mediterranean with a new world touch. Exceptional food & service, live music, original art, fine wine, craft beer and custom cocktails are all part of a vibe which is current yet still warm and truly part of the community. Dine in our 20-person Gallery which fronts onto James Street, our main level dining room, in the bar area or our newly-renovated lower Speakeasy Lounge, which is suitable for regular dining, private functions or groups. Sister restaurant to Twisted Lemon in Cayuga, owners Chef Dan Megna and Laurie Lilliman look forward to welcoming you to Lake Road.
