Contemporary American
Since 2006, The LakeHouse restaurant has been the jewel of Bay Shore, NY. This past summer, owners Eileen & Matthew Connors and Jay Gut have upgraded from a cozy yet elegant charmer to a brand new dockside treasure. With stunning views, comfortable seating for 100+ guests, two lounge areas, and deck overlooking the Great South Bay, and a garden fire pit, The Lakehouse is touted by many as “one of the best restaurants on Long Island.” At night, the deck is illuminated, as is the waterfront lounge area where guests can congregate for after-dinner cocktails. This New American fine dining experience is not to be missed. The Lakehouse can now be reached by boat as well, as guest dockage is available at the new gorgeous bayside locale.

I know these are tough times and I maybe should’ve spoken up. Made this reservation close to a week ago for my girlfriends birthday. Wrote in the reservation using open table that we’d like a seat outside and maybe a dessert be available for her birthday. Would’ve paid for whatever you typically do for birthdays. We were put inside unfortunately. Was trying to find my waitress on a few occasions to remind her of the birthday or pick out a dessert when when my girlfriend went to the bathroom but she was no where to be found. Food was great and again I know these are crazy circumstances but Its my first time using open table and I really would’ve appreciated being able to celebrate her birthday the best as possible. Thank you for the delicious food and be safe

We are so happy that you enjoyed the meal (5 Stars- thank you!) and sorry that you were disappointed with your table (1 star). We try our hardest to accommodate requests, but are limited in our seating capacity to ensure social distancing, so we can't promise tables. We did have the note regarding the birthday, because of the abundance of allergies we never send food without guests ordering. Had you ordered, we would have gladly put a candle in it. Thank you again for your feedback & visit!

They over charged us on at least 4 items. The price said one thing on the menu and then more on the bill. When we asked the mgr about it she just took it and walked away. No response or anything. It was disrespectful. The server was beyond nasty. Service was
horrible and we will not go back. Service is very important.

Thank you for your feedback and so sorry about the confusion & handling of our mistake. We have been trying to program everything back to the correct pricing from pre-covid to take-out. (In your case $10 desserts, supposed to be $11, and soup by cup/pint/quart pricing all confused.) We had a few glitches as you can imagine. Everything has been rectified and we can't thank you enough for your understanding. Thank you for your visit and we hope you will try us again.

We really appreciate all that was done to keep patrons and staff safe. Overall, it was an enjoyable experience. My duck was okay, but the scallops were superb. We will go back again as long as they continue the safety policies.

My husband and i had an absolutely amazing lunch at the Lakehouse. Restaurants on the water certainly make for a beautiful setting. In this case… In addition… The food was truly special. It was a bit of a ride but i can’t wait to return.

Delicious lunch on the deck with a beautiful view of the Great South Bay. We both had the shrimp salad, and it was perfectly prepared. The menu is now limited, but there are still some great choices.

The waiter ignored us for quite a while. The bus boys were on top of water & bread. We had to stop the waiter & ask to give our food order.
Other than the waiter everything was great!!

Compared to earlier visits, we found the food mediocre. None of the dishes were particularly good, with the ravioli being mediocre in a tasteless sauce and a more tasteless stuffing. The servers were rushing to remove our plates at every course, even when there open tables everywhere. The decor also needs to be redone. White acoustic tiled ceilings and wooden floors do not work with a $135 price tab per couple.
