We were there for our family reunion in July. Decided 3 of us wanted to give Sunday brunch a try. Went to the reception desk and was asked if we had a reservation. When we said we did not, we got a "look", then the hostess looked around the corner (we assumed they were that busy and she had to... More

We at there 2x. Dinner and lunch. Dinner: ran out of menus, took over an hour to get food. Poor server constantly appologized for bar and kitchen. I would strongly consider eating elsewhere. 2nd experience was lunch. Took 45 minutes for kids grilled cheese. There were only 2 tables in restaurant? Not good experience.

We enjoyed the view, and the service was friendly and good. The food is good but not close to the best I've had. I like the smaller or limited menu and the prices were consistent with similar establishments. I would recommend it and I think most would enjoy the selection and meal especially if you are staying in the immediate... More

Not much to look at from the outside, but we were surprised by the quality of the food, and the great menu selections! Friendly staff, and we all came out full happy and very satisfied!

Our group of 11 included a mixture of kids and adults. The atmosphere is slightly upscale (compared to some other area restaurants) but still very family-friendly with staple items the kids love (chicken tenders, burgers, popcorn shrimp, etc) ... The adult entrees were delicious - especially their signature NC Mountain Trout.

We had dinner reservations for 8 p.m., but were running late so we called to let them know. They were more than gracious and said no problem. When we arrived we were led to a table by the window where we had a beautiful view. I ordered Shrimp Scampi and it was delicious! The shrimp were a nice size and... More

Nothing on the menu appealed to me at all. And to complicate matters, My wife has food allergies, and that limited her choice of dishes to 2 plates. Ended up walking out without trying the food, so can not rate beyond the first impression.

I was fully expecting this place to be delicious after looking over the menu. That's not exactly what happened. We made a reservation for dinner with 8 people. We are in Lake Lure once a month during the summer and this is the first time we tried Lakeview. When we got there, the waitress, to her credit, was extremely nice.... More
