Mari's Lake House, 1605 North Lake Drive: 2015   5 comments

Posted at 1:39 am in closing











Mari's Lake House was the followup operation to Bentley's Beach House in this North Lake Drive building in Lexington.

As far as I can tell, the setup was very similar, with even the same AMF Sunfish still sitting in the parking lot. I'm pretty sure the free beer offer was new though..

(Hat tip to commenter badger)

UPDATE 30 August 2016 -- Now Levi's Lake House:


UPDATE 27 January 2022: Adding map icon. Putting in a closing date, which I apparently forgot to do originally.

  1. This place seems too nice to not be able to find a way to stay in operation. A friend of mine used to eat there quite regularly when it was the Dam Bar & Grill and commented highly about it. Hopefully, someone will eventually find a way to keep it going.

  2. I've been meaning to check this place out since about three names ago.

  4. I visited the Dam bar a few times when a friend of mine was the GM there. It was a nice establishment but the distance to Lexington or the Bush River part of town was too far for many people to consider driving to especially when better places were closer to them. The Sheriff's Department had the practice of sitting out front of the business which intimidated the younger late night patrons. Hemingways has the same problem with police sitting in wait of prospective customers. A lot of people have stopped frequenting the place for fear of being stopped by the police.

  5. New sign out front (or rather a revised sign utilizing many of the same lettering and style) indicates Mari's Lake House will re-open (if it hasn't already) as Levi's Lake House.
