After two weekends of a bar packed with patrons eager to say goodbye to the Lakeside Inn, the Reston watering hole finally closed its doors Sunday (the remnants of the party still languishing on the deck on Monday).
Reaction to the aging restaurant's closing was mixed. Many Restonians said it was high time as the place has dated decor and not-so-good food. Others were crushed as they are precious few places in Reston to get a cheap draft beer and a burger and run into all your friends.
However, the waterfront location on Lake Thoreau makes the large Lakeside space ripe for all kinds of new business opportunities. The property managers say lease negotiations are ongoing, but let's dream in the meantime. What would YOU like to see open in the spot? Tell us in the comments.
