The Hotel Lakeside Dining Room has been a smashing success this summer thanks to a delicious menu providing a unique family dining experience and the creativity of new manager Chef Stacy Maple.
Featuring a classic flare with a modern edge, Chef Stacy’s cuisine is inspired by the lake and the fresh, colorful flavors of summer. A few favorite items include, Chilled Strawberry Soup, classic Seafood Boils, hand-breaded Lake Erie Perch and Peach Barbeque Pulled Pork.
The proper Afternoon Teas have been very popular, a tradition Chef Stacy brought back to the historic hotel. A hot pot of tea is served alongside warm scones with Devonshire cream, lemon curd and house-made preserved, followed by three tiers of savory morsels and delicious tea desserts.
Adult Tea ($22) includes nine different food items for each person. Petite Tea ($10) includes a warm scone, petite peanut butter and jelly sandwich and choice of tea desserts
It wouldn’t be a Lakeside summer without a tasty, cold treat!
The Lakeside Lemon Cooler is a refreshing drink consisting of handcrafted lemonade, soda water, a dash of cream, a sugared rim, lemon wedge and whipped cream for extra sweetness.
The Popsicle Spritzer is an incredibly fun drink for kids. This light, fruity drink is made with sweetened lime seltzer and a frozen strawberry fruit bar tipped upside down into the glass, complete with strawberry slices and lime wedge.
