Food and service were very good. But the best part was eating outside and around sunset, with the gorgeous view of Mirror Lake. We watched people paddle boarding, sailing, and just enjoying the lake at the end of the day. Idyllic spot for dinner.

The Boat House is one of our favorites spots for dinner. The unfortunate thing is that they are closed during the Thanksgiving holiday. If we return to LP in December we might be lucky enough to find them open for business. Food, service and view...More

By arriving before 6 we had a perfect view from a window table. Helpful server described menu items and mad good suggestions. We really enjoyed the side salad and salad dressings. We enjoyed our entrees and all had dessert. We will definitely eat here again.

Perfect romantic set up. Also well equipped for families. Food was excellent. Try the chicken breast on arugula and tomatoes! Service was perfect.

The service was poor as the waiter was distracted and overworked. The restaurant had a sense of entitlement that was not earned. I had the salmon which was overlooked. My husband had a very meager portion of five tiny scallops which were very tasty. The...More

not that I know. We had been there in January - jeans were ok. No jacket required. But if you are asking about now, and about if you can go in shorts - may be better to call them?
