The Lakeside – Not quite sure how they can get a way with saying fine dining. Our family walked in looking for a good meal. We were never greeted as we were walking around looking for a table for 9. We finally sought one out in a private room. Our waitress was clueless and clearly overwhelmed. We were the only table in this particular section of the restaurant however. The other patrons passing in the hall from the patio whether in or out were loud and obnoxious (not behaviors I want my kids to see). Our meal took 45 minutes. My steak came overcooked. The garlic mashed potatoes were horrible. Are they really serving instant potatoes with a $20.00 price on the meal?? Crazy!!!
By the time my re-cooked dinner came (another 30 minutes) the rest of our party was done and had left the table to play games. I was left to finish my meal alone. At no time did a manager come by to see how everything was. I did see a gentleman counting large amounts of money at a booth across the room and asked if he was a manager. He said he was (and a bartender). I told him of our disappointment and he just simply replied that they were overwhelmed today. Still does not excuse the horrible service we experienced. Needless to say we will not be returning!!
Looking for trouble – If you are looking for a fight, drugs, trouble, etc. This is your place. One of the many eyesores or Forest Lake. The police are always called to this low life hangout for a reason.
