The food itself was ok, nothing special. I say in the bar area with two small TVs with no sound. Place felt very dated and worn down.

This was an unexpected delight. The Service was 2nd to none and the food, well, was right at the top of the list for this trip. From the prime rib special, the Chilean wine (Cuna del Sol (red)) , Vermont chicken sandwich, and mashed potatoes with Cabot cheese! The maple creme brulee for dessert topped off the nite. Add to...

Walked from our hotel to have dinner after a long travel day. We sat outside and enjoyed that opportunity. The meal was good, nothing spectacular, but fine. Service was fine, not outstanding, but fine. We would eat here again under similar circumstances, but it's not a restaurant I'd go out of my way to visit.

We were staying next door at the Holiday Inn Express and after a long drive, did not want to get back into the car! This turned out to be a good decision. Their daily special was half price tacos (choice of chicken, beef or fish). I choose the fish tacos (three tacos in the order) and my husband had the... More

First visit. Returned twice for late night drinks. Reasonable wine list, reasonable prices. Friendly bar keep. Friendly patrons. very Vermont local and comfortable environment. Suggest you try it if your staying around the Shelburne area.

The Lake-View House was an interesting restaurant which was located in an old well-kept house. I was able to order gluten free Cabot Cheese Chicken with mashed potatoes, zucchini, and a salad. The server, Jake, did an good job working with me so I could have safe food for a person with Celiacs Disease. My husband, who is not Gluten... More

Waited a long time for our entrees. Not sure who is doing the cooking? The one the staff calls the chef seems to always be at the bar flirting with the Blonde Bartender. This has been the case the last few times I have stopped in. The food is not worth any wait. Think I am done.

Just stopped in for a quick bite at the bar. The crab cakes were horrible, I think they were Sysco pre-fab. Staff was outside on smoke break most of the time. Something strange going on with this place.

We are locals and went here for Mother's Day brunch, hoping to find a new 'go-to' restaurant. We were not impressed with the buffet offering: fruit with toothpick holes from a previous use, unappealing mashed potatoes and scrambled eggs, etc. This was the first buffet brunch we've gone to where no one went back for seconds. The 'homemade cream cheese'... More

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.
