Overview

Our Rating: 3.7/5 How we calculated this rating

Lake City Bank first started operating in 1872 and has its headquarters in Warsaw, Indiana. Lake City Bank has assets totaling $5 billion along with $4 billion in deposits, ranking it as a large bank. Lake City Bank does not have the customer service bells and whistles of other banks. It is a conventional brick-and-mortar bank, which means in-person service, in addition to its online and mobile presence. SmartAsset has rated Lake City Bank 3.7 stars out of 5, suggesting it is an acceptable bank choice, but may leave you wanting more. 

Lake City Bank has a diverse array of product offerings, including savings accounts, checking accounts, money market accounts, CDs, IRAs, brokerage accounts, mortgage products and credit cards. It has a fair savings rate, which means you can find higher rates with other banks. The bank's standard checking product maintains a monthly fee of $9.00, which may be better for customers that will always carry a large balance. Using the same bank for checking and savings can be best for getting the highest interest rates on your money while retaining easy access to your funds.

Service Quality

Lake City Bank is a brick-and-mortar bank, with 51 total bank locations in Indiana. With mobile and web apps, Lake City Bank makes mobile banking convenient, even on the go.
