Fantastic food and huge portions. You'd think this place would be 20% more expensive than it is based on food quality and service level.

It was a ghost town at 8 on a Saturday. Kind of strange. Food & service were very good.

We sat in the quiet bar are. Unfortunately there was a rehearsal dinner party in the room next too us singing karaoke which was way too loud. The poor manager asked them to turn it down but they refused. With the World Series on the bar TVs and the karaoke you couldn't hear anything.

Worst experience we’ve had at Bungalow Lakehouse. Service was agonizingly slow. Waited at our table for 45 before being able to order food. Hard to get refills on drinks. Food was just ok. We used to go there a lot, but it had been a while. Probably won’t go back.

Smell of smoke walking into the building - turns out they have a cigar bar on the property. That’s fine for cigar smokers, but not for us. Food is fine, but don’t believe this place lives up to the high ratings.

Food was good. Our dining room was stuffy/old fashioned. Would have liked to sit outside but the cigar smoke was unbearable.

Wonderful local gem with lots of dining options to suit a range of styles, from special evening out, to patio dining by the lake, to a fun bar night with friends. Love the attentive and friendly service! Food is consistently delicious and we were delighted to experience the Oktoberfest beer and food specials. Highly recommend!

Really great service and food! Some of the seasoning was heavy on the salt, but that's just my opinion. Will definitely be coming here again!

Classy place to go with a friend or a group. The food and service was delish. I loved the chicken lettuce wrap appetizer and could have that as a meal sometime. Beautiful atmosphere.

The server was very attentive. The food was good, but our daughter had a hard time finding something without onions. Most ingredients in the dishes are prepared earlier in the day and if you hold the onions out, you get just something plain as they are mixed in with the other ingredients that make the dish.

Hi Guys,

One of the many things I learnt as a waiter in London restaurants was that you never bring out the main course until the appetizers are finished.

This happened to us on Monday.

Consequently not only did we have to rush our appetizers but also our main course became cold. Not to mention the abundance of plates on the table!

We like your restaurant and will be back again. Normally I would have made a fuss but hey.....it was a lovely day and my wife and friends deterred me. (ex waiters...like ex smokers are always the most critical!)

Please don't penalize our waiter I'm sure he tried his best. But something to instill in your staff. Timing in a restaurant is as important as the food.

All the best

This was our 3rd visit. 6 of us came for a family get together. We came from Winchester which is a 35 mile drive. Food was excellent! One meal was returned with a small problem and it was replaced very quickly. Portions are always a very good size. The waiter was helpful and kept our drinks full and table clear. Needless to say I left a nice tip. We will be back!!

The basket with bread we ordered never made it to our table. The waiter told us a mix up happened. The food was great as always. Overall the waiter was not very attentavive and we had to asked another waiter to clear the table after we were done with dinner.

Sat in the bar, was very busy and noisy (which we did not mind), service was slow at times because it was so busy, but our waitress was sweet! Food came out quickly and was quite good. Would go back when I am in town.

Went on half price burger night , (Tuesdays) after not having been there for about 2 months. They have changed up the burgers and the one the I liked (California Burger) they took off the menu because it was too much like their full price California burger. Funny I thought thats what half price(gourmet burger night) burger night was. O_o
I wound up getting the Big Ben with the toasted ciabatta buns that I didn't care for and it broke up as I was eating the burger. They are apparently enforcing the "no substitutions" so I couldn't change the bun to the brioche bun. The no substitutions rule is to keep people from building a full priced california burger for $6.99. I really can't believe they were losing money on that as the burger nights in past the dining room was pretty full, it wasn't so last Tuesday, will have to check back.
Everything else though was great.

Heard good things about this place so we decided to check it out. Really glad we did because it was all around excellent. The deck has a gorgeous pond/lake view and fabulous for a warm afternoon/evening. Our server was great and attentive. My food came out incorrect and our server was quick to fix it. I just believe my requests got overlooked in the busy evening kitchen because I saw our server take note. They remade it in no time. Their happy hour deals are great and so is their food. Their fried pickles are to die for! I have since been back this place is awesome!

Six of us enjoyed dinner on the terrace overlooking the lake. The nachos from the happy hour menu were delicious. My crab cake sandwich (ordered without the bread) was very good. Those who ordered salads raved about them. One of us needs gluten-free meals and the wait staff was very knowledgeable about how the foods were prepared which gave her confidence that the food she ordered was safe.

We had prime rib and shrimp tacos. Both were delicious. We had reservations and we were seated right away in the main dining room. Service was excellent. Several people in addition to our waiter came by to check on us from time to time. Would like to come back and try the sports bar area or the outside seating. Lots of atmosphere choices for whatever mood you are in.

It was great having our Easter Brunch at the Bungalow Lakehouse. I took my father there, along with my husband and son and we all had a wonderful experience. The buffet choices were plentiful and our server was attentive to our needs. I would definitely recommend the Lakehouse to others.

This place is what you dream of in being a local one of a kind neighborhood rendezvous bar/restaurant. If you want energetic vibe there's the humongous sports and live band area with an outdoor patio... if you want conversation with business associates or close friends try the cozy bar with sofas, fabulous bartenders, and small tables straight ahead.... and if you want restaurant dining in a quiet atmosphere go to the right for the dining room. Everything for everyone. Love this place. Hope it never goes away.

We love coming, to the lake house and always enjoy the service and the meal.
I think however it's time to change out the carpets in the front room. This, however, won't deter us from enjoying the great food and wonderful service.
