Food is good but not great. Very expensive for a casual place. Portions on some items like rib eye steak were very large but. Scallops were skimpy. Caesar salad was good but not great. Waiter was nice but all help are very young and not well trained. Dinner plates left on table when desserts were brought out. Summer eating out... More

The food was delicious. The service was good considering how busy they were. It was VERY loud in the dining area and there were a few lights that went out so it was very difficult to read the menu. I would recommend that if you can, sit outside, get there early on a weekend night. The food is worth it.... More

We have been there many times over the years & will continue to dine there because of all the things it has going for it. Good choice of menu items, good choice of draft beer, good service & it's right on the water. Also, accessible by water if you have a boat.

My husband and I went here on a recommendation. We went because it was close. The view was nice, but I think that is what this restaurant used to get people to eat here. The food was about the worst we ever had and we eat out a lot. We ordered the fried calamari with peppers as an appetizer. It... More

We visited the Lakeside while on vacation at Keuka Lake. We were seated outdoors under a tree, thankful for the shade as it was a hot day. The view of the lake was beautiful. Our waiter was obviously new but polite, and if he wasn't able to answer a question he found someone who could. We started with a chilled... More

We went here with a group of 8 for dinner. We were early enough that we were seated promptly. Our server was very friendly and efficient. Or meals included steak, scallops (not bad) crab cakes ( blah), Alaskan king crab legs, ribs (dry) and some good salads. The rolls were great. The setting is nice but we wouldn't go back... More

There were three in our party for lunch today, 8/10/16, a Wednesday. We have visited here before but not recently. The staff is very friendly and welcoming. The menu offers a reasonable number of choices without being overwhelming and so the expectation is that each item should be prepared well and be of good quality. The Philly Cheesesteak sandwich, which... More

We went on a Wednesday night to see a band. Lobster roll was very good, as was the wine. And what a great view of Keuka Lake.

Our party of 4 enjoyed a wonderful lunch at the Lakeside. We started with the chilled seafood bar (crab claws, lobster tails, shrimp & four oysters on the half shell with delicious accompanying sauces). One person in our group had a cucumber cocktail made with gin, cucumbers and mint. When asked about the recipe, our terrific waiter (Hobart) brought back... More

Always like to come to the lakeside for a waterfront meal. The service was really good. The food was just average~although my farm stand salad was delicious.
