It started with a dream.
Rooted in good food, and good neighbors.

March 2012

The idea of the Lake House started in John Schmitz’s Lakewood living room.

April 2012

From his couch, John pitched his concept to his friends and family.

March 2013

With the help of loved ones, The Lake House Bar & Grill opened its doors.

“I am so lucky to be able to live my dream of owning a restaurant in the East Dallas Area. With the help of my excellent staff, the Lake House has been feeding the White Rock area for 10 Years.”
