The Lakeview Tavern

Under the able stewardship of Tanya Meszaros since 2007, the Lakeview Tavern has become a hub of activity in Stone Mills Township. Always a popular 'watering hole' for many generations, the Lakeview has been more of a meeting place and restaurant than 'tavern' these days, catering to families, couples and community groups. Located ideally along County Road 41 in Erinsville, the Lakeview is a full-service establishment that has cultivated a truly down-home, welcoming atmosphere.
