The Hotel Lakeside Dining Room has been a smashing success this summer thanks to the delicious menu, unique family dining experience and the creativity of Chef Stacy Maple.

A classic flare with a modern edge, Chef Stacy’s cuisine is inspired by the lake and the fresh, colorful flavors of summer.

The proper Afternoon Tea has been very popular, a tradition that Chef Stacy brought back to this waterfront 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 & jelly sandwich and choice of tea desserts.

Wake up on Sunday morning to the Hotel Lakeside Dining Rooms brunch specials, like Perch BLT or Wagyu Brunch Burger topped with egg and bacon. The brunch menu features a combination of popular breakfast and lunch items, a create-your-own brunch plate option and weekly specials. Reservations are suggested.

From 11 a.m.-4 p.m. Sunday, Sept 6, the Dining Room will be “Grilling in the Courtyard,” located behind the hotel. The menu features a grilled burger, brat or hot dog basket, served with a side and a drink for $7-$10.
