We don't go out for breakfast very often but when we do we like a real breakfast. The Lakeside Restaurant can offer that in large portions. I opted for the full size French toast and ham and my husband got the lake breakfast with ham,...More

You just can't visit Bear Lake without a breakfast or lunch at this restaurant. Open seating, clean, filled with the conversation of locals and the food is always served hot, quickly and in bountiful portions. While waiting for your food to arrive, one can watch...More

Service has been very very slow the last few years and has usual breakfast food. Only place in town for sit-down breakfast.
