The view is just beautiful and the food is good. Half price wine on Tuesdays and prime rib buffet on Wednesdays. Ate dinner here twice during our trip and enjoyed both meals.

My husband and I celebrated our anniversary here. My only regret is that we couldn't site outside. The food was good and the service was spectacular.

The service at Lakeview was excellent, which made up for the mediocre food. We ate there on the Prime Rib Buffet night. The selection was very limited and at best lukewarm, even when just brought out to the line. The dinner rolls served were a good hockey puck impression. The Prime Rib was tasteless and also not very warm, though... More

We went here on Father's Day for the brunch. I had called and made reservations which they did not have when we arrived. We sat outside which is amazing with the Great Lake views. This was by far the best part of this restaurant. The food for brunch was practically a continental hotel breakfast. They had a omelet station but... More

Friends suggested that we give the Lakeview a try on Wednesday night. It is the Prime Rib buffet night and well worth the trip. Offered every Wednesday all season. Reservation suggested by necessary. The servers were fantastic and friendly. We had a special request on behalf of my wife and they were completely supportive with a big smile. The boneless... More

My family had multiple great experiences during our stay. We had a group of 11 and came into lakeview restaurant twice. They have certainly stepped their game up since last year. Our first server was Nick, he was extremely professional and knowledgeable. He made sure our children were happy which of course made us very happy. His recommendations were perfect,... More

We enjoyed it. The prices were a little high for what you get but in line with places that call themselves "resorts". Most of the resort villas are timeshares so proceed with caution with those.

My wife and I enjoyed dinner at Lakeview. The view was spectacular, the service was good, the food....pretty average. We had the trout which was fine, but don't add the 6 "giant" shrimp for $6. Because (1) they were not "giant" (2) they were cooked on a skewer and we think still frozen, because the texture was terrible.

Dined here with my husband for our anniversary dinner and was expecting a "fine dining" experience. What we found was a very nice "down home" experience with a very friendly, Southern wait staff. While the service was friendly and prompt, it was obvious that none of the staff had been trained on how to open and serve wine appropriately nor... More

The view can't be beat! The menu changes regularly. Always have several reasonably priced entrees. 1/2 priced wine on Tuesdays. Prime rib buffet on Wednesday.
