We are now serving beer Monday-Saturday!

Welcome to Lakeway

In 1952, Gerri and the late Lawrence Bruno DeGeorge had a dream- opening the finest restaurant in Ashtabula county, serving the best quality food available in a clean and friendly atmosphere. Complementing Gerri’s homemade cooking is the professional expertise that the DeGeorge’s son David acquired at the Culinary Institute of America at Hyde Park, New York- one of the two finest culinary art colleges in the world- adding his own special touch to his recipes for over 40 years.

At Lakeway, our commitment to our customers extends beyond the exceptional quality, value and variety of our dining selections. We’re equally committed to serving healthy, kind-to-the-heart entrees and offer special selections for special diets. Through consultation with The Cleveland Clinic, The Ashtabula County Medical Center and The American Heart Association, we have implemented a series of guidelines for our food preparation.

All of our foods are prepared with all-vegetable, no cholesterol cooking oils and margarines. We fry fat-free. We add very little salt to our cooking; you add the salt you prefer. Our gravies and sauces are strictly controlled to reduce as much fat and salt as we can. Most of our seafood, chicken or meat dishes can be broiled for you. We broil with no-cholesterol margarine.

At Lakeway, we remain fully committed to a heart healthy, high value dining experience for you and your family. Lakeway takes special pride in the fact that for over 65 years, millions of customers have enjoyed our meals. People of all ages and walks of life continue to dine here daily. The restaurant takes pride in its outstanding staff of chefs and employees. Through all their hand work and efforts, we are living Bruno and Gerri’s dream.


Good service great pasta!

January 26, 2020

Been coming up to the area for over 15 years and this was our first stop at this restaurant. Always drove by and said why is there always so many cars here and so we decided to check it out . Both of us got pasta dishes one with meat sauce very good and other work traditional red sauce and meatballs also very good . Great menu items and a lot of choices . Had like a diner feel in the front with seating in the back .

Will be back .


The best Lake Erie Perch!

I moved away several years ago and always make sure when I come for a visit, I stop by Lakeway’s for their Lake Erie Perch. It is the best! I highly recommend Lakeway’s and their perch.

The Food was Amazing and the waitress was very personable and attentive! The Mozzarella Sticks were very well prepared as well as everything else, the Chicken Parmesan was perfectly done, the Artichoke angel hair had such a nice balance of flavoring.

I went to Lakeway on 2/12/2022. The service was great and the food was even better. I had the homemade chicken Alfredo and cheese cake (homemade as well). I recommended to anyone . It’s nice to see a mom-and-pops restaurant opened for dinner time.

Lakeway Restaurant is probably the best restaurant you will find in the Ashtabula area!

August 13, 2021

They specialize in Italian foods and kindness. We stopped in to have our favorite… puttanesca! While there we saw a soup special featuring seafood chowder. Had to try some. Wow! What a treat! Memories of New England danced in my head. It was amazing! Then the salad came out. Nice and crisp veggies with homemade gorgonzola dressing and my friend had homemade grape vinaigrette with homemade rolls and real butter. Again Wow! The Puttanesca arrived with homemade penne, homemade sausage, a wonderful fresh made creamy red sauce flavored with roasted red peppers, onions, perfectly cooked chicken, sundried tomatoes with a bit of spinach. I still taste the goodness.

Our waitress was friendly and kept us refreshed without us asking. What more could we ask?

Do yourself a favor and stop in. There’s a wonderful selection of daily specials. The owners are in the kitchen insuring great food. I can’t say enough about this jewel near ashtabula harbor.
