We have been blessed with wonderful weather this week in East Tennessee. This afternoon brought a few of us together and we all decided we needed a "waterfront" restaurant in Farragut. None of us wanted to drive to Lenoir City or downtown. We all though of Lakeside Tavern at the same time.
The Main Portico Entrance
Arriving at the covered entrance we disembarked our vehicles and strolled into the lobby. Two charming assistants tried to sit our party on the interior booth seating...but we requested a waterfront table and were promptly were escorted to a nice table. Booths are OK...but someone seated in the "middle" has to get up. Table seating is much more convenient.
Immediately we began scouring the Lunch Menu Nice salad selections and Lunch Specialties. We began with warm bread and butter which I had to bypass, Sugar Busters...no bread, no sugar, no pastas. The rest of our guests enjoyed it along with The House Chardonnay.
Our server suggested The Summer Salad Trios available. Fresh Crab & Avocado--Gala Apple Waldorf--Insalata Caprese each priced at 11.99. We all bypassed the salads and went directly to the Sandwich board. The Tavern Crab Cake Sandwich was outstanding and the Colossal Club was greeted with enjoyment. My friends also enjoyed the Rocky Top Chicken Stack and the Lakeside Steak Sandwich. All were delicious served with the so-so french fries. They were a little "limp".
After our meal was complete, we all decided to sip our drinks and enjoy the water scenery which was perfect. I asked to see the Dinner Menu and will have to make a return trip to this nice and friendly restaurant.
