This place is now called "Lake House". Appears to be under new management. Had a great time sitting on the deck. Treated very nice by all the staff. Will return for sure!

This is the premier venue on Geist lake. It's the latest edition of Blue Heron in this building. Good bar scene and very nice al fresco dining either on the deck or a covered patio. This location continues to be the 'place to be seen'...More

We love being on the water so we chose Bella Vita to take my in-laws who are from out of town. They were very accommodating for our 6-person party even when we asked to be seated outside on the patio. Bri, our server, greeted us...More

Or perhaps the only on-the-water restaurant on the lake ... Tired menu. New management / new waitresses / new bartenders with no restaurant experience. The bartender asked me how do you make a Tanqueray and Tonic. Very sad.
