Went for our anniversary. Great food. I had the seafood pasta is was very yummy. Big shrimp good sauce. My husband had the special- a filet with a crab cake. Filet was done perfectly & was tender.

We were here for a Birthday celebration and were very impressed with the staff and the fabulous food. The best part may have been the plethora of Dr. Frank wine they had available.

Some of the food was not the best. The Wok Noodles were pretty good. Staff was friendly and helpful. Environment was so-so. Overly expensive for atmosphere and food.

Not that that has anything to do with the food. Paige was our server and very good. The halibut special was slightly over cooked but flavorful and had 4 nice size chunks of lobster on top. The veggie mix wasn't your standard squash, it had...More

Thanks for your review. The Lakeside was never white with a blue roof. You must be thinking of another place.

We thought the food was wonderful: crab claws were to die for; duck was well done and nicely presented. Only things we didn't like is the slowness of wait staff; and the fact that between 4pm and 5pm you can't get any food except appetizers...More

I think it's important to point out that the Lakeside had a kitchen fire the week before this review was written. When we visited there that same week, it was obvious to anyone that the management and staff were doing everything they could to provide service while rebuilding the kitchen at the same time. I would urge readers to avoid judging a place based on a negative review like this which criticizes performance during a crisis which was beyond managements control. Those of us who do frequent this place are very appreciative of the investments made by management over the past two seasons and we were more than please that they managed to even stay open during that time period.
