Decoy Dockside Dining, the new waterfront restaurant at the Lakehouse Hotel & Resort in San Marcos, is set to open on August 29. From the innovators at Eat.Drink.Sleep. - who own and manage other notable hotel, restaurant and entertainment properties including Tower23 Hotel and JRDN restaurant, Draft, Cannonball and Belmont Park - have been working on a multi-million dollar phased redevelopment of the Lakehouse Hotel & Resort, a unique destination tucked away in on the shores of Lake San Marcos in San Diego’s North County. The development features a waterfront hotel, renowned St. Mark Golf Club with an 18-hole and an executive golf course, and an array of outdoor activities and amenities.
“The creation of Decoy and the ongoing enhancement of the resort and golf club is a passion project and one of the most carefully considered redevelopments we have undertaken,” said Brett Miller, President & CEO of Eat.Drink.Sleep. “My family has a personal connection to this community and wants to preserve and enhance what is already considered a hidden gem.”
Downstairs guests can enjoy the Dock Bar, which sits water level with lounge style seating, a pizza oven, and open air access to the lakefront. Diners will enjoy an all-day menu with appetizers for sharing, pizzas and light entrees such as the Dockside Bar Messy Burger with a bison patty, boar bacon jam, asiago cheese, farm egg, caramelized onions, butter lettuce and sun dried tomato aioli; Ostrich Empanada seasoned perfectly with jerk spices and served with grilled pineapple relish; and Duck Meat Ball Banh Mi with sweet and sour gastrique, cucumber sunomono, carrots, daikon, and roasted serrano aioli.
Diners can drink in the tranquil views of Lake San Marcos from two levels, each offering a unique atmosphere. The 8,000 square foot upstairs dining room features natural textures, cozy fireplaces, and rich textile tones with steel and bronze accents. The 1,000 square foot deck provides a perfect lakeside view for any meal. Dock Bar, on the downstairs level, takes a more casual approach with its water-level lounge with a pizza oven and open deck to the lakefront.
Decoy Dockside Dining will serve breakfast Monday-Saturday, dinner daily, and a Sunday brunch buffet in the upstairs dining room. The Dockside Bar downstairs will be open 7 days a week serving appetizers, sandwiches and pizzas. The Dockside Bar will also have happy hour daily from 2-6 p.m.
