Best meal we have had in ages...the wait staff was delightful and helpful with the wine list. We ordered all of the evening specials and they did not disappoint! Each course was homemade and delicious. Only regret was not having room for dessert!
Met here for Sunday brunch and had fantastic experience! Atmosphere, food and service were exceptional. Drinks were great and promptly served. All four of us loved our food and server was attentive, upbeat, and efficient. The history and old school Maine summer traditions make it...a special place. Well worth a bit of a drive for the esperience. Loved it and have to take some friends there before summer is over.More
So many pluses happening here
1) The history....
2) The view
3) The staff
4) The food
Visited here with a cousin who has a summer home within walking distance. The place is beautiful with an amazing view of the lake. You couldn’t have asked...for better service and the food was excellent. If you’re near this area it’s definitely worth a stopMore
This restaurant is literally off the beaten path in rural Maine but it is worth excellent in terms of quality of food and service. New chef Joby Culver who has worked at other restaurants in Maine and has developed a diverse menu with choices for...all tastes and diets. Time it right and you can finish your meal and then take a short walk across the parking lot to the Lakewood Theater for a live show with multiple musicals and comedies performed throughout the summer season.More
We made our reservations for dinner when purchasing theater tickets... the two establishments are about 150' apart! Arrived at 6:30, were seated in the lovely, old-fashioned dining room with windows all 'round looking straight out at Lake Wesserunsett. Our waitress offered drinks and water, and...expertise on the wine list. My cup of seafood chowder was SO amazing, I insisted that my companions have some too. They agreed it was not to be skipped (and I grew up on Chebeague Island, so it takes some going to impress me when it comes to chowder!). I chose wild mushroom ravioli on a base of kale, and my companions chose pistachio/raspberry chicken, and sesame/black pepper-crusted tuna (rare). They were all delightful dishes, cooked to perfection, and the tuna was such an inspiration I came home and cooked a facsimile the next night!
A clever and delightful feature of the experience is the offer of dessert during intermission. So after a hysterical first act (BASKERVILLE), we adjourned back to the restaurant and went back to our table where coffee, tea, salted caramel cheesecake, and mixed berry pie awaited.
Another note: after the show, we stayed overnight at the Colony House, a charming B&B about 500' from the restaurant and theater where the likes of Betty Davis and Lana Turner stayed when they were treading the local boards. The Lana Turner suite was already booked, but all the rooms are done 'in period', so it was easy to imagine a bit of time travel here. Breakfast in the inn's dining room - which also has windows on the water - added yet another layer of special.More
Sure there are better restaurants in major cities, but don't sell this place short. The food is very good, our service was exceptional, the building quaint/historical (may a bit tired, but not too bad) and it's is hard to imagine the place could be successful...given how out of the way the restaurant is - - go here
We ate mostly seafood - scallops, haddock. We also had 2 desserts - the pecan pie was especially good.More
Lakewood has an interesting history. So glad it is alive and well for another season. We enjoyed a wonderful dinner and the show SHOUT! I always enjoy the restaurant overlooking the lake. This year once again, there were an excellent selections on the menu. The...stuffed haddock was delicious and large plump scallops looked amazing! Save room for dessert. I never had better carrot cake.
You never know how the play will be, given the fact, local talent is used in productions. I must say the ladies in SHOUT. Did an excellent job. It was on of the best productions at Lakewood in years,More
I was not impressed at all, my fellow diners could not delight in the experience either.
Wait for any initial contact with a server was as painful as you can imagine. Water glasses finally filled then the wait for anyone to take a drink order,...hello Adelle sang in my pained head. The meals, oh my minute rice and canned carrots, the haddock was covered with a white flavorless white gravy substance! C'mon man you can't be serious.
No no no don't spend you money here!More
