Recently visited for dinner. Very convent to the hotel where we were staying. Attractive space. We had the scrod - excellent and a generous portion and the rib steak, which was tasty. We started with the salad bar, which had the usual offerings. Finished with a very good apple crisp.

We had dinner and drinks at this restaurant, and we were both surprised how good it was. The waitress was very pleasant and helpful. If you are staying at either hotel next to it, give it a try. You can walk to it, and no waiting.

We were staying right next door and walked to the restaurant, we dined outside and were really impressed by the food and service, sometimes a place so close to the hotels are cheaply done, but not this one. They offer a salad bar with each entree and it was all fresh and tasty.

I have not been to the Lakeview house in over a year. I had learned that it was under new Management and thought I would give it a try. It was so exciting to find it very busy with such a wonderful atmosphere. The service was excellent, the food out of this world- "DELICIOUS", not to mention they have added... More

For our anniversary we like to try a different restaurant we haven’t been to before. I had a coupon for the Lakeview House in South Burlington and we decided to give it a try. The location is on the first floor of a Victorian mansion, which dates to 1850. Over the years, several restaurants have occupied this space. We were... More

Have gone here many times over the last few years with friends to have an enjoyable happy hour experience. Have eaten mostly appetizers. Very good specials. Fish or meat tacos, chicken wing appetizers are recommended. Good selection of beer and wine at affordable prices. Recent staff changes were disappointing. Fortunately my favorite wait person, MIchelle is still there and the... More

I never like writing a bad review, but here goes. This restaurant is located in a beautiful house on Route 7 with plenty of parking. The atmosphere is great, our server was exceptional but the food did not meet expectations. The salad bar was okay, very standard, the bread was very dry. My husband ordered the grilled salmon, he said... More

We used the Lake-View House for a very special family event recently. They have a wonderful private dining room upstairs that they set up beautifully for our gathering. From start to finish they were responsive and accommodating. They easily addressed menu needs and the food was fantastic, start to finish. I highly recommend them .

The Lakeview house is an 1850 farm house that has been lovingly restored. Old meets new in the bar area where you can catch the game on one of several flat screen TV's while surrounded by antiques adorning the walls. Meals are made from scratch, and weather permitting, can be enjoyed on the outdoor patio right next to the garden where many of the ingredients for dishes are picked daily. A banquet room upstairs can comfortably hold up to 80 people with lake and mountain vistas as the backdrop.
