We arrived at 6:35 p.m. with two little kids and 8 adults. Although the food was okay, the issue was the length of time it took to get food. Did the server forget? Was the kitchen understaffed. Bottom line is that the wait was intolerable...More

We've been going to Lake Street Cafe every time we visit The Osthoff. It has always been a favorite place to go. Had we not experienced great food and service on previous trips, we wouldn't be going back, but I'm sure we'll give them another...More

My buddy and I came up again this year for Road America and another visit to this venue. Baby Spinach salad with chicken was yummy even though the place was chaotic with Road America human traffic. Ask for Kelsey, who waited on us two years...More

We come to this restaurant almost every time we go to Elkhart (which is a lot!!). Its a very casual interior but the menu list is great! Seafood, steaks, pizza, salads and specialties. I haven't eaten something I didn't like from here! Excellent drink options...More

I never write reviews but feel I need to on this one. Checked in with the hostess at 6:30 pm, we had to check with him on our table twice to find out he "forgot" about us. We told our bartender the beer from the...More

I didn't expect "find dining" at the Lake Street Cafe, but that's what was served. You certainly can get a burger here, but why not try the crab cakes and the roasted brussel sprouts? Or the fennel and beet salad? Great, great food and you...More
