“Delightful view of the marina and waterfront.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 27, 2011

Visiting Muskegon for TEDx-Muskegon and joined the TEDx group after the program for drinks and dinner at the Lake House. All seats have fine views of the waterfront and marina. The menu offered good variety and our choices were delicious. Service was friendly and attentive. We'd go back.

“Good food with a nice view.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 23, 2011

Ate dinner here after a long day traveling from Traverse City to Muskegon to catch the ferry. We walked from the Holiday Inn which is only a half mile away. The food was good, we had veggie ravioli and seafood soup appetizer. We got a nice booth next to the window overlooking the harbor, very scenic. You could also sit outside, but it was rather cool that night so indoors was better. Its not a very big place and I think they fill up fast but we had made reservations an hour before and had no problem getting in. Very nice place.

“Outstanding menu and location”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 17, 2011

The Lake House has been a hit since day 1. It has an outstanding menu, with great food done with a flair by the chef, such as Kobe beef sliders with grilled onions and gorgonzola cheese. Plus, it sits on the shores of Muskegon Lake with the marina in between - great view at any time. Stopped there for drinks the other day in the middle of our bike ride on the bike trail around Muskegon Lake. Delightful.

“Good bar and good, fresh food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 18, 2011

I was staying at the neighboring Shoreline Inn with family and we decided to check out the resturaunt after we enjoyed their happy hour (not that amazing of a happy hour, but the drinks make up for that). We were seated in the very back of the resturaunt but still had a good view of the marina and lake Muskeegon. The menu selection is good, I ordered a large pizza which was enough for two people and leftovers, the ingredients tasted very fresh and was served hot. Service was good, they were busy that night so it wasn't quick, but we weren't in any hurry. Price is slightly steep, but it's expected for a place next to a hotel and on the water.

Overall a good place to eat while in downtown.
