Found in the thriving Uptown neighborhood, Lake & Irving is a newish restaurant with an already great reputation. Their friendly staff and charming décor offer a pleasant ambiance for a morning brunch or evening happy hour. Also, compared to other Uptown eateries, Lake & Irving magically keeps their menu classy, yet affordable.

Known for their meat dishes, but offers delectable vegetarian options as well, Lake & Irving is the perfect place for the flavor-seeking omnivore. Ordering their Salmon Quinoa or Misoyaki Salmon will leave your mouth wanting more. Their Kalua pork is smoked for 7 hours and is cooked to perfection; it’s no wonder that it is a crowd favorite.

With 15 beers on tap, creative cocktails, 11 different spirits to choose from, and a lengthy wine selection, it’s hard to not find something to like on their drink menu. 

On the weekends, Lake & Irving can get quite crowded, but the wait is never long and the noise level is always surprisingly tolerable.
