“Excellent food, great staff”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 28, 2014

Waterfront tavern with surprisingly creative food and high energy, thoughtful staff. Even on a busy night, everyone worked together to get drinks and food out, greet people coming in, cleaning as they went. A bit small, so tables fill fast, especially outside on the deck when the weather is good. Easy lot and on street parking. Jason in the bar must have been a circus performer in another life the way he kept juggling the proverbial flaming swords, bowling balls, babies and chainsaws without seemingly breaking a sweat.

“Great Patio overlooking Marina”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 28, 2014

I have enjoyed lunch outside on the patio in the summer. Food was good. Very reasonably priced. I opted for the all inclusive lunch which included a drink, sandwich, salad, soup and pizza. I paid $9.99 for the lunch special. Well worth the price.

“Outstanding surprise”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 7, 2014

Wow! We dined at Lake House last night with a group of five. My entre was the jumbo crab stuffed shrimp with an oil and vinegar salad. And it was just outstanding. My wife had the filet upon recommendation of the staff. She was equally pleased. We enjoyed three different appetizers and each was better than the next. I happened to order a diet drink with a little cherry juice and it was served with a bunch of cherries and a side liqueur glass with juice. But the entre was out of this world, drizzled with an enhancing sauce I did not recognize. The service was just superior. Good job, Lake House. We will be back. I must add, however, that although the atmosphere was beautiful along the lake, it was a bit loud to hear the table conversation.

“Great food and service with a great view”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 1, 2014

We went there on a weekday without a reservation, but I would recommend you make one. They were able to accommodate us by quickly bussing a table. Both the hostess and our server Jasmine were both wonderful. The food was fantastic. I had the scallops with crabmeat and asparagus risotto. The scallops were perfectly cooked, as was the risotto. My friends both ordered pasta dishes and the chef was able to accommodate a substitution of shrimp for mussels. I appreciate this because some chefs dislike requests for substitutions. We shared a good bottle of the house wine and a strawberry rhubarb cobbler with ice cream. Everything was great in spite of two big parties going on. The restaurant is small and on our visit the big parties made it a little noisy, but we still had a wonderful time.
