Lakeside Chautauqua | October 2020
NEW dining experience under Chef Stacy Maple coming to Lakeside October 26!
Lakeside's Chautauqua Hall will be transformed into a cozy, casual dining space with décor that celebrates local history and Lake Erie through images and memorabilia. Build community within Lakeside and beyond the gates & support Lake Erie Initiatives as a portion of sales will be donated.

The Slack House Historic Café will feature a nostalgic menu with burgers, shakes, fries and more. Menu variations will be available to accommodate everyone including vegetarian, vegan and gluten free options.

"Restaurants anchor our communities. We hope the Slack House can serve as an anchor for Lakeside, a place for our neighboring communities to come together to support one another and the Great Lake we all love. A portion of the revenue generated through the Slack House will be donated to ecological and environmental initiatives that better Lake Erie,” said Maple.

Join us at 10:30 a.m. on October 26 as we open the Slack House Historic Café!
