There are two dining rooms at Lake Street:, although the "gourmet" menu is available in both rooms. The "bar side" has a casual atmosphere with a very good light menu: sandwiches, pasta dishes, salads, etc. The "restaurant side" has white linen table cloths and a quieter, more romantic, atmosphere. Both sides have charming atmospheres; however, the bar side can be louder when crowded, and can smell of cigarette smoke. As mentioned, the restuarant menu is available on the bar side, and includes such entrees as lamb, tenderloin, salmon and other searfood. There are nightly specials, but they always include the german potato soup (not sure why it is a special if always available!) and the seafood is always prepared the same way and served with saffron rice and a sauce. The menu finally was revised this past year, after the same entrees for several years. Wine Spectator has rated the restaurant due to its very diverse list. Ask the owner for a recommendation--you'll appreciate his knowledge. Lake Street also has a very good selection of wine by the glass. You will want reservations during the summer weekends, particularly when Road America races are in town as the place is a favorite for the race fans.

Pros: Wine--bottle and by the glass

Cons: Loud and smokey on the bar side, need reservations on summer weekends

The restaurant room for Lake Street Cafe is nicely decorated, inviting, and relaxing - until the room fills up. The noise with other diners talking and nothing to absorb the sound was so loud I had a diffacult time talking with my dining companions.

Varied wine list, interesting menu, service was busy we waited for the main entre.

One dining companion mentioned that his rice was cold another mentioned that the lobster piece in the lobster bisque was tough.

We didn't have desert. I don't think I'll head back any time too soon.

Editorial from

This jovial, bustling restaurant is a neighborhood hangout, but visitors shouldn't hesitate to stop by for a meal or a pint of local beer. Lake Street cafe is divided into two rooms: a casual bar area with communal tables and a billboard…
