I had the crab cake appetizer on lettuce with sliced tomato because I didn’t want the bun. It was generous and delicious. My daughter got the California cheeseburger which was fantastic! The only reason I take one star off is because the bacon was not...crispy, it was not freshly cooked, seemed reheated, so the texture was off but still good. This is covid times so everything was to go. It was ready and well packaged with everything we needed, at the time they told us to come back (15 minutes on a Saturday afternoon which is impressive). We were on our own to find a place to eat outside but we got lucky there. We asked a nice couple if we could sit on the other side of a picnic table they were resting at, and they kindly said yes. They looked at what were eating and I think they went to Lakeside Grill for lunch too! Good service and reasonable prices. Would have been 5 stars with freshly cooked bacon, so it’s really 4.5 stars :) I will definitely be back if I’m looking for lunch in the area.More

There was no line in that place unlike the nearby places. I don’t understand because I got a great lunch from a super nice employee ! Recommended

Made our annual Presidents Day stay to Smithville (stayed at the Colonial Inn for 3 nights) and was pleasantly surprised to see that a new restaurant opened since our last stay last February, the Lakeside Grill. Food is AMAZING! Very big portions and reasonably priced...for the portion size you receive. We ate there 2 mornings in a row (did take out and ate in our room). The breakfast wraps are so stuffed with whatever you order inside, that I personally could only eat half and was so full afterwards needed to take a nap!!! Eggs Benedict is done PERFECTLY and I'm a huge Eggs Benedict snob, hard to find one that is done to perfection. Glad to see there is another option for breakfast other than the bakery. Can't wait to go back for a day trip and try lunch or dinner.More

This restaurant located near the lake is small with just 9 tables. Prices are reasonable and our waitress was friendly and attentive. We had the standard lunch items and the portion size was decent. We were going to eat at one of the more well...known popular restaurants in the village but it had a 45 minute wait. Glad we came here instead.More

Since we live locally we decided to take a walk to the Lakeside Grill for breakfast. Had the Lorraine omelette, one of the best omelettes I’ve ever had. Tasty, cooked to perfection. Delicious home fries. My husband ordered the breakfast quesadilla. Not only was it...delicious but the quesadilla was home made. Cute little place. Limited seating. Looking forward to trying lunch and dinner there.More

Everything on the menu is great. We had lobster rolls, crab cakes, crab stuffed lobster and clam chowder. Everything was fresh and delicious. Prices were also very reasonable. Friendly service. Father and children in the kitchen, wife out front. Could not have been a better...experience. We recommend it for any group.More

This restaurant is located in Historic Smithville Village. It was only open for 4 days the day we visited. It was very clean and the food was excellent. They have a large menu to choose from and the waitress and the owner were very pleasant....This is a place to stop and eat if you go to the village. highly recommend this restaurant.More
