Our a-la-carte Sunday brunch begins at 10:30 a.M. Located at 3100 North Service Road in Vineland, Ontario, Lake House features Mediterranean cuisine, including such specialties as gourmet, thin-crust pizzas and magnificent risotto and pasta dishes as well as steak and seafood. There is something for everyone on our menu. When you dine at Lake House Restaurant, you will want to save room for one of our housemade desserts. Our delectable dessert menu features our signature creme brulee, as well as our famous mini desserts - a little touch of sweetness after your meal. Lake House Restaurant was originally built in 1867 by the Moyer family. Much of the natural charm of the house has been maintained with all of its original woodwork, exposed brick and three fireplaces still intact. A beautiful sunroom has been added onto the house, overlooking the lake. Join us from May to October on our spectacular patio where diners can experience a breathtaking view of the lake. Lake House can also accommodate groups from 10-60 people in a variety of private and semi-private settings.

We booked a table for 5 for 6.30PM on 28.04.2013. We arrived at 610PM. We were told that no table was available although people walking off the streets were accomodated..no problem. At 625, I asked again to find out if the table was going to be ready. I was told not yet. I offered to leave as I had a handicapped father who could not stand for long time periods and as already 7 other families went in ahead of us. A patron who heard this and was about to go, very kindly moved his family and asked that his table be given to us; this was done at 640PM. Somehow I got the impression that we were being racially profiled .

We ordered our food and asked for 5 glasses of water. It took them over 20 minutes to give us 5 glasses of water after we had requested 4 different servers (and it was not like they were busy). Water refill was again a similar story. Our server didn't care and the other who went by us just couldn't be bothered. At the end, it took 4 servers to get the water refilled. Food was good. Tasty and good size potions although a bit expensive. If you are willing to pay the top dollar for your food, go somewhere else. Why would you pay the top dollar and accept substandard service and be racially profiled.

Lake House is a great place to eat and relax. The patio over looking the Lake is great on a warm day or evening.

The menu has great balance and fair pricing. If even to only have a cocktail, its a really nice venue, whether on a date, friends and or family.

Like any restaurent though, the server can sometimes rush the experience. When we go out for dinner, we chose to dictate the timing of our evening. So when visiting Lake House ( or any place )...... take some time, stretch out the meal with a drink and some good conversation!

We recently visited The lake House Restaurant in Vineland Ontario for a quiet supper after a days drive. We were seated right next to the fireplace and the cold chill from outside slowly subsided as we ordered our meal which was delivered with a smile and the food was very good. I loved the woodwork and it had a cozy feel about the place like being back in time when things were simple, yet lovely. I would like to stop by for another meal on a warm summers day and be seated st a waterview table to calm my mind and relax, I'm sure you'll find something nice about each seated area so the next time your on a little drive stop by and try it for yourself be sure to make reservations on weekends as it becomes busy. On a perfect day you can relax outside on their patio which overlooks the lake. Enjoy!

The food is excellent, generous portions. The escargots are too die for. We went with friends on a Saturday night when prime rib is the special. It was done to perfection although I think carrots and red cabbage as a vegetable for this dish is not really appropriate.

Food, service and atmosphere are all good, but for the price, don't expect to be blown away. It's the weather is suitable, dine on the patio and enjoy a nice view of Lake Ontario.
