Dining room was comfortable and tables and seating was spacious. Food was prepared as ordered and service was very timely performed. Would like too see a greater variety of Gluten free offerings.

I had Virginia sea scallops with lobster risotto and it was delicious. I'm picky with food but this was great. Service was good too.

The restaurant is large with multiple bars including a smoking/cigar lounge. Outdoor patio area overlooks a manmade lake. Indoors is full of televisions with multiple sports channels. Service was excellent and brunch food we ate was delicious. Definitely a revisit for us.

Our party of 3 arrived at the restaurant around 10:45 am with reservations to sit on the outdoor terrace overlooking the lake. The terrace had several empty tables for 4 people. The hostess seated us near the door to the terrace near the wall. We requested to sit at a table along lakeside of the terrace. Hostess responded that due to several reservations that morning they would need to join those tables together. No large party materialized during our entire brunch -- In fact those tables ended up being given to a solo diner. and another party of 3. Not sure why the hostess chose to not give those to us.

Bungalow Lakehouse is excellent! The food is excellent. The wine selections are wonderful. Matt at the bar behind the reception is personable, knowledgeable and and very friendly. He made the food and atmosphere that much better. The new flatbread pizzas are amazing. We will be back soon.

Welcoming as it was a business meeting which lasted 3 hrs. We ordered 4 Sauvignon blanc, a red and 4 pints of Blue Moon over a Rueben & Pulled Pork sandwiches as well as an entree salad, which all tasted okay.

Ambience is great especially with the outdoor seating overlooking the lake with an overhang! This place is great for a lunch spot or Happy Hour!

Untrained staff, making basic mistakes in service. Possibly due to lack of qualified job seekers as a result of COVID.

Excellent service! Overall good meal! I had the lamb and my girlfriend had the salmon. The lamb was a little rough but the salmon, veggies, and mashed potatoes were excellent! Really nice quiet atmosphere.

Came here for brunch with my family. Nice, quiet atmosphere. Menu has good choices without being overwhelming. Mainly we ordered eggs made in different varieties. All the dishes were well prepared. The coffee was really nice. Very good service.

Beautiful view from the outdoor patio overlooking the lake. Great burgers.
Hostess was rather rude & inhospitable though. After dropping off my wife and then parking the car, the hostess simply stated my wife had gone up the stairs to the table without escorting me or even telling me which table she was at.

In the past we had a fantastic waitress, who unfortunately is no longer there. This time the waiter was unfriendly with a bit of an attitude. So its the luck of the draw with the service at this place.

Great view of a large pond from the verranda. Hesters were on which made us too hot. The noise even being "outside " was hard to hear the two other people at my table

Food was terrific. We had some issues with where they initially wanted to seat us, but as soon as they learned what the issues were, they quickly moved to accommodate us. Food was excellent, serivce was great. The only real issue was that it was extremely loud where we were sitting - hard to have a conversation with four people. Two could handle it, but that was only by leaning over towards one another. I would definitely recommend it

The food and outside terrace were great. Happy hour drinks were tasty and only $5. The server was a bit slow ( had to ask for water 3 times) and appeared rather inexperienced but was very pleasant.

Enjoyed Easter Brunch with my family. The weather lending to a fabulous day on the patio. Food was amazing as always! My husband thoroughly enjoyed the grilled lamp chops and the steak was cooked perfect! This is one of our family and friends favorite places to dine.

Was very smoky smelling inside smelled like I was in an old bowling alley. Apparently you can smoke in the bar upstairs so it just kind of permeates the whole restaurant unfortunate. The food was good however

This was our first time for brunch and tried several things and shared. The Mimosa Flight was outstanding and a great value! We also had the blueberry pancakes, the breakfast pizza and Mexicali wrap. To top it off, we got a side of biscuits and gravy as well as homefries. Next time I'm going for one of the Benedicts!

Bungalow Lakehouse is a consistently great experience. They have various rooms, so you can choose from a music and a bar atmosphere, a quiet dining experience, or an outdoor patio (with great heating). The service is exceptional.

The food and service at the Lakehouse are wonderful. The noise on the enclosed back porch is almost too much for my husband who wears hearing aids. We can’t wait til the weather gets warmer, and they can take down the plastic. But we enjoy the food so much, we’ll be back!
