Last week, Summer House on the Lake made the official announcement via social media that its third location will open at the Walt Disney World Resort in 2023. It will be located inside the Disney Springs shopping, dining, and entertainment complex.

Summer House on the Lake has two other locations at this time: one in Chicago and one in Maryland. This will be its first-ever Florida location.

According to the Summer House website, the menu is inspired by the flavors of California, and there really is “Rose’ all day”:

The California-inspired menu, led by Chef Ben Goodnick, features simple ingredients sourced from local grower partnerships and sustainable products. Rosé is poured all day off the signature Rosé Cart, alongside an extensive wine and handcrafted cocktail list. And no matter the weather, the bright and airy vibes always fill the atmosphere.

Whether you’re in for date night, a family get-together, or brunch with friends, summer is waiting for you on the other side.

Menu items include salads, sandwiches, tacos, pizzas, and pastas, among other offerings.

Summer House on the Lake is owned and operated by Lettuce Entertain You Enterprises, a company that began in 1971 and owns, manages, and licenses more than 130 restaurants in 12 states, including Illinois, Minnesota, Maryland, Nevada, Virginia, Washington D. C., Texas, and Florida.

Summer House on the Lake at Disney Springs will replace plans the complex had for the Beatrix Restaurant, also owned by Lettuce Entertain You. Beatrix was announced in 2019 and was to open at Disney Springs West Side.

A neighborhood restaurant, grab-and-go market and coffeehouse, Beatrix was to feature healthy food options, including vegetarian, vegan, and gluten-free options, as well as fresh-squeezed juice cocktails. A full-service bar and a bakery were also planned for the new restaurant.

But those plans have since changed and instead of Beatrix, Summer House on the Lake will call Disney Springs home sometime in 2023.

“Summer House will be replacing Beatrix,” the company said. “During the pause in construction in 2020, we had time to reflect and evaluate what we wished to put into Disney Springs. We decided, and Disney agreed that the Summer House brand was better suited for this particular project.”

Summer House on the Lake will be located on Disney Springs West Side near AMC Theatres.

About Becky Burkett

I'm an enthusiastic writer who finds joy in random things like cold weather, snow, "I Love Lucy," "The Andy Griffith Show," journals full of blank paper, countdowns to Christmas, the month of December, "Toy Story," "Sleeping Beauty," my 4 kids, my 4 shih tsus, Disney Parks history, Imagineering and visiting the parks. I think Walt Disney is the standard against which genius should be measured. I love to write about Disney Parks, Disney history, all things Imagineering and PIXAR. I adore the colors, story and art direction of Disney's "Sleeping Beauty" (Team Make it Blue!), and "Toy Story" is life (minus "Toy Story 4"). I believe Walt Disney was so much more than an entertainment and theme park tycoon; I believe he was a savant with a vision for life and how it could be if happiness and kindness are strived for. I love Biergarten at EPCOT and 1900 Park Fare at Disney's Grand Floridian. You can find me croonin' with the birdies at the Enchanted Tiki Room, chillin' on the PeopleMover or hangin' with Woody and the gang at Toy Story Land. I'm always looking for Imagineers in the parks, and I'd rather meet Joe Rohde and Tony Baxter than anyone in Hollywood! Hey, if you dream it, you really can do it!
