This place is awesome! What other establishments have a sail boat in the ceiling! Or a mural of Lake Max in the bar!!! Great atmosphere and even better food! I've never had anything that was bad! I LOVE the Chicken bacon club sandwich and the bugars are to die for!!! I highly recommend this stop as you go through town!!... More

DO NOT GO TO THIS RESTAURANT!! My husband and I waited for over an hour and ended up leaving because we still had no food! After an HOUR we got up to leave and instead of Kent the so called manager taking care of us he stood and treated me like a piece of trash. I CANNOT believe the disrespect... More

Husband and I stopped for lunch today. We've lived in the general area for nearly 4 years and are used to most restaurants in the are being decent & good enough. At first glance we were a bit taken back by the prices. Once we tried the food though - WOW. Worth every penny. I had the ruben sandwich and... More

While out on the lake, we docked and had lunch here. Very good food. A bit pricy, but a nice environment. Love the picture pressed on the bun.

I tried to go to just about every resturaunt and bar in Culver. (It's not a big town) so when I came into this spot I didn't expect the kind of welcome and friendliness I experienced here... they make everyone feel like they are a regular... after the first day the bartender knew my name and I could definitely tell...

My family went here for my birthday dinner. I love the sailboat on the ceiling and all of the beach items. You can sit inside or outside around a fire and see beautiful Lake Maxinkuckee. There is a full service bar with lots of options. They have a chef on hand, so you need to read the menu and see... More

We stopped in for a quick bite when we got to Culver. We had the chicken caprese sandwich with green beans and both were delicious. I ordered a margarita after the bartender said that he made a pretty good one. Not so much. It was way too sour, even after adding orange juice and triple sec. Other than that we... More

The food here is excellent. My husband had the fish and chips and I had the shrimp and scallop penne. (both very good) The sushi was good also. The service was slow and not attentive. Still for the food we will be back. Hopefully they will have better service and we did not get servers name since she never told... More

I was in town for a long weekend and had the Hawaiian burger twice! The first one was so good, I just had to order it again when I returned to the restaurant. Cold beer, nice atmosphere, good food, outdoor seating, all make this a good do to place when in Culver.

Located just a block off from the lake, this is a nice area to visit and walk around. We had an event later in the day at Culver Academy and decided to drop in here for a quick lunch. The dining area was very busy. It was the weekend and parents and students of the Culver Academy's summer programs were... More

We specialize in keeping you happy! Our menu ranges from Burgers, Steaks, and Seafood, to Sushi on the weekend! Our extensive bar has 16 beers on draft and the largest collection of liquor around! We also have drink and food specials daily. The Dining Room features a soaring ceiling which houses a spectacular 20' C-Scow sailboat, rigged and ready to embark on Lake Max. The walls feature funky original surfboard art and super-sized advertising art that ranges from the bizarre to the nostalgic. The Lakehouse Grille is Culver's favorite restaurant & bar for friends and families to meet for any occasion. Enjoy a family outing or business dinner in this informal dining atmosphere. The lake is in full view from both dining areas giving it the feeling of a coastal, laid back environment.
