Lakefront Restaurant Review – Charlotte University Hilton

This is a sponsored post courtesy of

In searching for some new places to eat near my work, I headed to to find some different eateries that I had never been to. I found a good number of restaurants near me, all with different fare. Some were cafes, some inspired by locations around the world, some were quick in and out type places while others were sit and dine. I was happy with my selection.

After making my final choice, and printing out my certificate, I headed to lunch at the Lakefront Restaurant, located inside of the University Place Hilton in Northeast Charlotte. As the name suggests, the restaurant is situated on the lake along with the other shops and restaurants near the UNCC campus. Lakefront is just off of the hotel’s main lobby area and is a beautiful restaurant with a great view.

The lunch menu was accommodating to all kinds of food needs. For starters, I ordered the bruschetta (one of my favorites). This dish consisted of four thick, but soft pieces of bread topped with tasty diced tomatoes and seasonings. The bread looked a little burnt, but still tasted great. For my main dish I ordered the turkey burger. This entree burger comes topped with Swiss cheese, caramelized onions, and mushrooms and french fries are included as the side.

The crisp, potato-y french fries were cooked just like I like them. They were near perfect; not too thick and not too salty. I had to stop myself from eating all of them before I even started on the turkey burger.

The turkey burger was a bit pricey ($12), but definitely large enough to where you felt like you got your money’s worth. There was no way that I could have eaten it in one sitting. It was very moist and not dry like some turkey burgers at other restaurants. There was a good amount of flavor and seasoning as well. I always feel like good turkey burgers are a win over the evils of red meat and I’d recommend Lakefront Restaurant’s turkey burgers if you’re a fan like I am.

The service was great. The waitress that was serving me at Lakefront Restaurant was friendly and checked on me regularly and the food was delivered relatively fast, which is great for those needing to get back to work after lunch.

In my opinion, Lakefront Restaurant’s menu was a bit on the high end for a quick lunch, but I think it’d be a good choice for a date, business meal, or a special night out in the University area of Charlotte.
