thumbnail for Lake Pavilion RestaurantOrdinary place. the first time i went, it was mid-day on a monday. SUPER CROWDED. the second time i went, they split the room so 3/4 was reserved for a wedding party. the food isn't bad, neither is the service but this place doesn't really stand out compared to the other restaurants in the neighborhood. they probably would get good business though because it is right next to the highway and their restaurant glows at night with neon signs.
