The ambiance will throw you, but the food is sublime. Great prices on wine and the staff is very knowledgeable. Everything was perfect. The mussels were excellent and the lamb chop was divine.

Lakeside was great again. The mushroom and blue cheese on flatbread appetizer is so good, I could order 2 or 3 and make it dinner. The triggerfish was cooked to perfection with a great melding of favors. I'm somewhat surprised that the new owners have been able to transition without any disasters. You wouldn't know that Marty is no longer on the kitchen.

We ate with 7 friends this weekend at Lakeside. We had a great meal as usual. I had a vegetarian plate with fettuccine, lots of seasonal vegetables and a light curry sauce. It was wonderful. My wife had the halibut special which was also outstanding.

Marty has sold the restaurant and retired, but Laura (his longtime manager) has retained all the staff and everything was exactly as it has always been. Great food. Great service and a wonderful view of Harris Lake.

Chose this restaurant based on the recommendations of the inn keepers where we were staying and several other guests at the Inn as well. Set on a small lake with ducks, hummingbirds to enjoy while u enjoy your dinner. 2 in our party had steak , myself being one and I like my steak prepared well do e and mine was to perfection. The other guest had salad and tomato flourentine. Stated it was absolutely delicious. The waitress we had was very attentive and made sure we were satisfied with our dining experience. Don't miss it if you visit highlands. It's definitely worth repeat visits
