Saw a review on Facebook and so glad we did!! Went with friends on Wednesday night for the steak special and what a delight. The restaurant is absolutely beautiful and the service was excellent. Being a BYOB was an added plus. The steaks were made perfectly to each ones taste and served in a totally professional fashion. We have now... More

Unsure where to eat we decided to take a chance and go to Fairview Lake Cafe. It was a beautiful room filled with a huge stone fireplace right in the center. It is a BYOB of wine for a corking fee which is donated to a local charity. We did not know about the BYOB but were satisfied having just... More

This is my second visit to the newly opened Fairview this summer. Again, the live music (Jae Merrill & Gabby Borges) was a huge plus. The food was even better than on our first visit. I had the steelhead trout & my husband had the stuffed salmon. Both outstanding meals. Our waiter was very accommodating without "hovering". Dessert was a... More

My family wanted to have a nice lunch today after walking around the Wallyfest. I wanted to try this restaurant. We arrived around 2pm. There was no other patrons. We were seated immediately. We order drinks that came out promptly. We ordered our food. We sat for 5 to 10 minutes and our waitress came to our table nervously to... More

This BYOB Resturant has a delicious menu and scrumptious deserts. The dinning area is spotless with a lovely fireplace in the center of the room. The weekend we were there, entertainment was featured on the porch. We will be back 😉

I ate there a few weeks back and ordered the "Cowboy Steak." Normally, this is a large ribeye, often with a bone, but not here. It was smallish, rather thin for such a cut, and not a bit tender. Also, I ordered it "very pink inside." The first steak came back very well done, nothing even approaching rare or medium... More

It was obvious to me that the produce was fresh and local. Loved the small salad on every dinner plate. Loved the dried cherries in the rice. Loved the baked Brie, Brussels sprouts, filet mignon, stuffed salmon, mashed potatoes. And you cannot beat the ambiance.

This is our first time visiting the Fairview under its new owners. Same gorgeous arts & crafts architecture in a beautiful setting. Wonderful live music tonight by Jae Merrill & Benya Barshai - what a treat! We chose to sit outside on the porch. There are lots of choices on the menu. We started with a cheese & meat plate...
