It was lovely-the entire experience! My first time eating inside a restaurant since the beginning of the pandemic. I LOVE that you require proof of vaccination. We will be back. Thank you for all that you are doing!

In this time of Covid it's wonderful to find a place that felt as safe and comfortable as the Lake House did. Thanks to the entire staff for making a wonderful evening. We've shared our experience with many friends who I expect will be there for dinner in the near future. Thanks, Evan & Kate

This place is actual magic. The food makes you feel like you're at the most cutting-edge, delicious, farm-to-table, unfussy urban restaurant that everyone is talking about--but then you're on a lake, and it's just perfect rural gorgeousness. Plus the wine list is totally inspired, and the cocktails are to die for.

Fantastic food, service, and atmosphere. We loved every minute of it. My only suggestion is the main course came before we were half way through the appetizer. So a bit more paced would be good. I'm looking forward to going again.

We had the best time! Food was delicious, service was the best and our kids canoed the lake while we sipped cocktails. What place could be better?

clean, felt COVID safe, food was delicious, good to have vegetarian items on menu, but a few more would be nice. Service was really good and friendly. It was a sunny day, so the lake sparkled. Brunch is a good idea. The only iffy thing for me was this: I dislike drinking out of mason jars. I always feel that it is not easy to get the ridges around the top of the jar clean- I mean, I have Mason jars and so I know how you must pay attention to those ridges. Also, they do not feel nice on lips. And they are kind of too barbarian for the menu. Drinking from them makes me feel unsafe and that they are unsanitary. Good pure water goes nicely in a simple smooth-lipped glass.

Seat cushions would help - was quite cold and they might have helped the wind factor.

The food took a really long time to come to the table. The mac and cheese was very good with a good amount but the chicken legs were small and 2 drumsticks with basically nothing else on the plate was pretty skimpy for an adult man. Setting was wonderful and wait staff teriffice;)
