Great food and great service. For the area, this is the best and most reasonable place to eat. Food is excellent, flounder is wonderful..

I don't understand all the accolades, but maybe that is because there just isn't much in the area. We had been wanting to stop since reading the high ratings, but I don't get it. I ordered the ribeye sandwich and fries. The sandwich was a little Wonder bun with very little meat. My husband had a burger which he described... More

I have eaten here once or twice a year for 16 years. Several of the waitresses were under 20 when I started coming here. The food is delicious, the service is fast and friendly and its a bargain. If you're in the area, stop and try it. You will not be disappointed.

The owners and staff were extremely friendly. The food was decent. Diner fare. We had fried catfish with baked potatoe and broiled trout with fried okra and pintos....pintos were cooked from scratch.....Now dessert was in a different ballpark...the choices were excellent....home made pies and cake. The coconut merengue pie could have made a magazine cover. Hummingbird cake. I went with... More

We had dinner and breakfast here. Dinner was ok, had meatloaf and mashed potatoes and husband had fried catfish. Nothing fancy but plenty of food for the price. Breakfast was cheap, under $4, for 2 fresh eggs, lots of bacon and a pancake. Would visit again. Owner is looking to retire and wants to lease or sale restaurant.

This is a typical breakfast and meat/3 restaurant that remains quite busy. Unfortunately, it will be auctioned off soon. The owner has had the restaurant for years and wants to retire. Hopefully , another restaurant person will take over.

We have been going to the Lakeview for several years off and on, and enjoy the service as well as the food each and every time, whether breakfast or lunch. The breakfast is always first rate no matter the combination of eggs, meat and side. Lunches are varied from sandwiches to "blue plate" and the specials are always an option.... More

Occasionally we eat at a restaurant that gets decent ratings on TripAdvisor and leaves us scratching our heads. Lakeview Restaurant is one of those experiences. The waitress was plesant and the place was packed plus they have a very large menu with lots of choices. That pretty much sums up the good things to say as it quickly went downhill... More
