The Bungalow Lakehouse
The dining room staff was excellent. Samantha was our server and she was great. The other major bonus is the place has an excellent sports bar and a separate cigar bar as well besides the main dining. Real gem
We arrived just after a larger group was seated in another room. Our waiter disappeared for periods of time, I assume to help with the larger group. The waiter lost sight of our drinks needing refreshed and we had to approach the hostess to ask for our check. We arrive early- 12210 for our 1230 reservation and were seated promptly. We had a 2pm meeting and had to ask for the check to arrive on time. Our food did arrive quickly. Willing to give the place another try as I think the service was off due to the group, or being short of staff.
A very nice evening with friends at the BL. Hubs is hard to please & he was quite happy with the prime rib. I had the cheese quesadilla with salsa & guacamole - really tasty & the leftovers the next day were even more flavorful.
Others at the table had the tuna & raved about how nicely it was done.
It's a bit of a trek for us - 20 minute drive instead of the 5 minutes to Reston Town Center, but totally worth it at least a few times a year.
Good food, attentive service & nice ambiance - we'll be back.
It was my first time visiting The Bungalow Lake house. Friends recommended it to me and since we were looking for a place to celebrate the New Year's holiday, I made a reservation. I did not know what to expect-My friends told me that the pizzas were delicious, the drink menu extensive, and that they had a vegetarian options on their menu. That was important to me since I am a vegetarian. I ordered the Tuscan veggie wrap (any sandwich can be made into a wrap) and had a side of sweet potato fries. My meal was excellent. My friends (none of whom are vegetarians) enjoyed their meals as much as I did. The atmosphere was equally as good as the food. Weather we were eating in the "main" dining section, or sipping drinks at the bar, everything was perfect, from the decor, to the lighting, and everything in between. The night of our reservation, there was a DJ and a New Year's balloon drop. My husband and I are planning to come back in September to celebrate our wedding anniversary. We are planning to sit on the terrace and enjoy the lovely lake front view when the temperature is a bit warmer. My friends recommended The Bungalow Lake House to me. I now know why. After my first visit, I already recommended it to others.
Went to this restaurant for New Years Eve dinner. Overall a very good experience. Server was outstanding and very attentive. Prices were affordable despite it being a holiday. The happy hour menu was available despite it being. Holiday. Good restaurant with good service.
Excellent service, excellent food as always
This was our first time dining at The Bungalow Lakehouse and we will definitely be back!
There were numerous patrons. Food came out quickly and hot. 4 star is only because I only had appetizers, soup, and salad.
Servers were particularly patient with members of our group of 7 showing up at different times and staying a long time. Very nice for large group. Choices for everyone. Nice presentation and tasty.
First time to dine here and we were very pleased. I had the Salmon with risotto and was fantastic. My wife had the seafood Alfredo, my son had the crab cake entree and my daughter had the burger. All were thoroughly enjoyed. We’ll definitely dine here again:
The food is consistently wonderful and the service attentive without being intrusive. Will return again and again!
Went away for a week and was so glad to get back there for some great food!
This restaurant came highly recommended because of the outdoor seating. It was October when we visited so we sat inside. It was quite noisy. The waiter was very nice and was trying but was very busy. I had to ask for the same requests several times. The food was good but I thought overpriced for what we ordered. I'm sure it's lovely sitting outside on the patio in warmer weather but we sat inside and the decor was extremely outdated and the restaurant was very dark. We will probably try it again when we can enjoy some cocktails out on the patio and give this place a second chance
Great food, great atmosphere and wonderful service
Food was FANTASTIC. Decor nice, but I don't prefer big screen TVs. Would love quiet atmosphere. Servers mostly friendly, but busy. We had to request service numerous times. Great manager...friendly, humble...brought our food to the table and served us several times. If you want excellent food at great prices and can tolerate TVs, worth a try, for sure!
A group of work ladies enjoying lunch. We chose to sit outside on the back porch, which was perfect. Not sure how it would be at night with people smoking on the other end. The inside bar area is very large with pool tables, darts and several tv's. There is a nicer indoor seating area that would be nice for a more formal setting away from the bar.
We found this restaurant on open table after a long day of travel with my mom and husband Taking a chance we drove the four miles from our hotel for dinner. We were seated in the bar which was ok with us. We had Filet Mignon with asparagus and mashed potoatoes. A perfect meal! My husband had a burger which was good and Spring Rolls. The waiter was excellent and even gave us a complimentary dessert to take back to the hotel with us.
Would highly recommend this place!
My wife and I visited from New Jersey for our anniversary. Great food with outstanding service, amazing ambiance and just an all around great restaurant.
Fun lunch with excellent mussels! Worth the trip. We had a nice quiet talk without distraction. Comfy seats.
Outstanding food and patio seating with a scenic lake view.
Excellent service while sitting outside overlooking water on a nice night. Food was very good, well seasoned and cooked perfectly. First time here, will not be the last. Check it out.
All food except wings, which were excellent, was totally average.
Bungalow’s is a great place for many type of people. We have always had great food and beverages. They have 5-4 rooms with all different settings. There is the outside covered deck overlooking a lake, large sports bar, cigar bar, mahogany paneled fine restaurant and bar then a light and airy room that is like a grand enclosed brightly painted veranda. If you go to the small mahogany paneled bar ask for Matt.
Sunday brunch was great, very friendly servers. The food was plentiful, hot and tasty.
Bar is good for a crowd looking for drinks, quick bites, sports, tvs and a night out. The dining room is nice and quiet (great place for those hard of hearing) and great for a quality meal and conversation. Would definitely recommend.
This is our go to restaurant, consistent service and food. It has something for everyone.
The server (Cassey) was outstanding. She managed the needs of all 7 at our table and did well picking up on and remnering names. A great employee.
We had Samantha for s server. Can not say enough nice things about her. My friend and I enjoyed the food. Will definitely go back and recommend to family and friends.
Marginal food. Very loud. Would be okay if you are watching sports and hanging out.
I had a Gin and tonic and though the gin was very week. I did not bring it to the attention of the waiter. I just did not have second.
Enjoyed the outside dining. Food was excellent. Service was outstanding. Highly recommend.
Good family restaurant with excellent food and service.
The service was great, everyone who works there was so engaging and kind. The Sweet Thai Chili Wings are to DIE for. The garlic pepper sauce was amazing too. Enjoyed that the mac & cheese had crunchy chunks of bacon throughout. We loved the atmosphere.
Everything was excellent, and always is that's why we come often!
This was my retirement going away and we had a wonderful time. Floyd was our waiter and he did a great job of pacing our lunch and got every order right. The food was fantastic and everyone had a great time.
This was our first time going to Bungalow, surprisingly, because we have lived in Sterling for 30+ years and had just now decided to give it a try! We were very pleasantly surprised! The atmosphere, the food, the decor were excellent and it was very easy to have a quiet, low-key conversation with my wife during dinner. We both agreed that the prices were very reasonable, which is probably why we over indulged the delicious Caramelized Banana Split for dessert - heaven!!!!
Olivia provided great service and was attentive to my 3-yr-old son.......even responded with a joke when he told her he loved her. 😊
The meals fell short of our expectations, for which the manager handled well.
This was a great place to eat. The service was phenomenal. I will definitely be back again. I truly enjoyed myself.
Bungalow Lakehouse is just a charming venue with great food & very nice service. Our waiter was in training, but he really did a nice job - they had clearly prepped him well.
Hubs is hard to please, so when he pronounced his 'prime rib dip' sandwich as 'very good' I knew we'd be adding this place to our date night rotation.
I had the quesadilla with guacamole & house made salsa - it was just spicy enough to calm my tex-mex cravings.
Many other items on the menu we both want to try - guessing it will all be good.
A co-worker suggested this gem & now I owe her one!
