8 people at The Lake House new location at the foot of Maple Ave, Bayshore. Right on the water. The bar area, the restaurant area and the deck have all been amazingly transformed into one of the niceest appearing and appetizing restaurants we'd been to in years. Then the food and service;;; There is no way to describe the food,... More

Every once in awhile you find Nirvana when trying a new restaurant. This happened last night after a day at Westhampton Beach, four of us were fortunate enough to reserve a table for 4 @ 8:30 PM. We were promptly seated but not before the hostess greeted us very warmly. EVERYONE in The Lake House is thrilled that you chose... More

We had a very enjoyable meal at the new location on the bay. The restaurant is very attractive and the water view is wonderful. The food is excellent as it was at the previous site and I thought the service was more than adequate. Everyone in our group of seven was happy with their meal choices, which include five different... More

Great room with a fresh look to the Bayshore waterside. The food was great except for two things. First the octopus appetizer had just too may flavors going on. My wife felt that the olives was going just too far and hid the flavor of the perfectly cooked octopus. The deal with roles. When we first sat down we enjoyed... More

Very good food when they get your order right. Our waiter and our order had a language barrier. Drinks came out wrong and entrees did too. It is a beautiful venue and will get better.

Matt & Eileen Connors have transformed a former run down location into the restaurant jewel of Bay Shore. Situated with a to-die-for view, the new Lake House is exquisitely decorated, comfortable yet elegant, with ample outdoor space as well as greatly expanded indoor seating. The menu contains old favorites and new enticements. Service is exemplary! This restaurant is well worth... More

If you can't get on to the dack the windows inside the restaurant give a beautiful view from just about... More

Nice bar and some really good lobster roll with Herb Frites (homemade french fries/. 1-1/4 lb. lobster in the roll. Well made. Good drinks. Try the cosmo with clementine vodka and white cranberry juice.
