Lakeside Grill opening

July 21 (Saturday): Lakeside Grill at Spring Lake Park opens

Featuring “Sunset Dinners”, a breakfast buffet and weekend brunches, Spring Lake’s once-sorry concession stand gets an extreme makeover when it reopens this weekend as Lakeside Grill.

Located near the swimming lagoon, the grill will feature a 140-seat outdoor space with 35 patio tables and 16 lounge chairs, and outdoor kitchen, complete with wood-fired oven, barbeque smoker and a grill. Morning walkers can grab energy bars, coffee and juice from 9-11am; weekend brunch includes a buffet, salad bar and barbecue buffet ($14 adults, $7 kids); wood-fired oven pizza and ‘que lunches from 11am to 4:30pm; happy hour of fresh oysters, beer and wine from 2-5pm daily; and sunset dinners with weekly themes of southern bbq, Italian, fish, tapas and all-American favorites from 5pm to dusk ($14).

Also at Spring Lake, food trucks continue to convene on Tuesday evenings at the boat-ramp parking lot.

  1. Two tries, two strikes. Cold (but edible) both times.

  2. Since so many people are walking dogs in the park, will dogs be allowed to lie down next to the tables at the Lakeside Grill?

  3. The mention of $7 to park might inspire all of us to buy a park pass to help Spring Lake park stay around for while.
    It is amazing all the well-healed people (designer dogs and iPods ) walking around the lake but parking outside on the road rather than paying for a Sonoma County park pass….

    • I have been there twice. First time was on the 2nd day of opening, and the food was not impressive (uncooked pizza dough). I love Spring Lake and the concept so I gave it another shot…and was disappointed again. Cold food and the re-fried beans that came with the special were hard and dry.

  4. Great to see new life breathed into Santa Rosa and entrepreneurial spirit. I look forward to these folks bringing some fun and great atmosphere. The negative people need to step back and remember the old saying “If you don’t have something nice to say, say nothing at all.”. It’s not like YOU’RE doing something better.

  5. How are they going to handle the seven dollar parking? Or, will patrons who don’t plan on utilizing the lagoon/ lake be required to hike in from the road? It seems to limit your demographics. I hope you plan on serving plenty of tacos.

  6. Lakeside Grill sounds like a great idea. Spring Lake is a great place for families to go in the summer and with this as an addition, it will make it easier than packing food for the day.

  7. tried Flipside. The highlight of the place: the young waiter who stares into his hi-tech pad as he uses it to take the order, not once looking away from the screen at the diners. LOL. Oh, and brought the wrong dish after all that. LOL. I guess the new greeting will be “Hi, I’m Charlie, I’ll be using my iPod to take your order.”
