When viewed on open table the rib eye was $28 dollars. New menu at restaurant it was $41 dollars. Price of meat hasn’t changed that much. The meal we order was very good and reasonably priced

Update your menu on opentable. I came in for the prime rib which you apparently no longer have. A disappointingly mediocre dining option in a town that has limited dining options to begin with.

Back for the first time in awhile, as prior experience was so-so. Service slipped with a kitchen printer snafu this time and an hour wait for food. Manager made things right. Food was good. Will try again.

Staff was very attentive and helpful. My husband was a little disappointed with his meatloaf but I loved my walleye. There was an accident just past the restaurant which made it hard for some of our party to arrive in time but everyone was helpful and understanding. As my husband said our server earned a good tip before we ever got our dinner.

Susie, the Manager, was amazing! Thanks Susie! (One small glitch, the waiter! Table set-ups should have spoons for soup, or be near by the tables, not back in the kitchen!)

I have been to the Lakehouse 3 times now. Each time I have been disappointed in the food, service and noise level. I really wanted to like this restaurant but after 3 chances I will not go back. The food is not that good. This past visit a waiter dropped a glass of water close to my feet and another server dropped a cup of sour cream. It Splattered me a little but I barely got an apology, but she wanted to borrow my napkin to help clean that mess. Not worth it!

The food was very good, but our waiter was not very knowledgable of certain drinks and menu items, but in his defense, he said that he had only been a waiter there for 2 weeks, and it was also a slow Thursday night. Overall, our dining experience at Lakehouse was good.

We had a wonderful time at this restaurant. There's a great variety of food to choose from. Our server was very friendly and it seemed like the rest of the staff was nice as well. We ordered the spinach and artichoke appetizer which tasted great and was more than enough for 2 people. For our entrees, we ordered the lasagna and the lemon chicken. The portions are large and we both have enough leftovers for a second meal! They also tasted phenomenal. It was a great time and we will definitely be coming back!

Nice place. Good food and service. Interior is comfortable, but the Tiffany lights made us feel like we were at an outdated Ruby Tuesday's. A but of updating is needed. Otherwise, good.

Dinner Salad was good, nothing special, Poured a good drink, Glenlivet scotch was my choice,
Wife had chicken, very good!, I had the all you can eat Walleye fish fry dinner with baked potato, one serving was sufficient. Desert, Carrot Cake enough for four people. Very good.
The bar should be larger standing behind someone and yelling you drink order and reaching over to pay your bill Is annoying to both involved.

Lakehouse is ok. Service is almost always excellent. Their menu keeps changing so I'm often disappointed that my favorite items are no longer available, or they are prepared differently.

I haven't been here in 7 years but let me tell you the service and food is still A+ quality! The ambiance has changed quite a bit. I kind of miss the quieter ambiance but it now has such personality. The chicken dishes are nothing short of an explosion of flavor and so very tender and juicy! Will definitely be returning!

Went for an early dinner on NYE but just to eat before other plans. It was very good, we got the whitefish and prime rib special. Their twice baked potato is very good! Service was great, everything came as expected. Also a decent beer selection.

We were seated promptly and our waitress was at our table in short order. She was engaging and attentive and enhanced the dining experience. Their Lake House chicken dinner was the most unusual and best prepared chicken meal I can remember eating. My wife likes to get her steaks done “Pittsburg-style” but can rarely find anyone who can prepare it that way. The chef here absolutely nailed it and made her Prime Rib exactly the way she likes it. We took the carrot cake dessert home with us for later. It is HUGE and can easily feed 4-6 people. And it tastes great. We will definitely come back again for a meal.
