Next door to the hotel. Give it a try. The bottle beer was good. Salad bar was good. Limited but fresh. Side of bread was hard. Steak was small and the toughest ribeye I ever tried to eat. Looked great but grill marks do not make up for super tough. Not a ribeye. I was not sure what it was.... More

We went this past Sunday with a large party. Our poor waitress was obviously very green. We were the only ones there. It was a large party and the bartender not once came out behind the bar to help the poor girl at least bring us our drinks! Took 45 minutes just to get everyone their beverages as she couldn’t...

We are very sorry to hear that you had a bad experience. Brunch is brand new at the Lakeview House and so far has been a huge hit. As with any restaurant, it is advised to make a reservation in advance for a party of your size so that they can prepare and incidents like this don't happen. Hopefully you... More

The atmosphere at Lakeview is extremely comfortable with a fabulous bar and loads of food to choose from. The staff created a enjoyable experience and I would highly recommend. Also, the new brunch on Sunday is worth stopping in!

we have been going to this place for several years and always thought it was better than the reviews, not this time. I think it has been through a few owners and maybe chefs. There were 12 of us for dinner. Five had an Alfredo dish with seafood (or chicken). It was bad: the sauce was VERY runny, the seafood... More

Went to the Lake-View House and had a great time. Friendly people and great food. I recommend it for a quick bite to eat, a full meal, or drinks. Fun place!

This restaurant has a new manager and it truly shows! The food is amazing and they always have specials for lunch and dinner. 50 cent wings on Tuesday's are delicious! Definitely worth a visit.

I've gone here twice, both times with colleagues. It's convenient. The last time was this past weekend. The staff is great, the food seems to be hit or miss. The prices are a little arrogant. Basically, if you want a bar setting that doubles as a restaurant, I'd choose here over any nearby bar/restaurant chain. The small bites are at... More

I visit the Lakeview house about once a week, and love their ever-changing specials menu, as well as the fully-loaded salad bar (bacon included) and entrees. Highly Recommend!

Our bus tour came here for lunch and the food was amazing and so plentiful- hardly anyone could finish their meal. It was great and I would certainly recommend this restaurant to anyone.

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.
