This restaurant has a wonderful location as it is right on the shores of Lake Seneca. The menu had lots of choices from seafood to poultry, pasta and steaks. We enjoyed our dinner there and the close proximity to the hotel we were staying at...More

There for lunch on a beautiful, sunny Saturday. We had a gorgeous view of Seneca Lake and dined on Crab Cake sandwiches. These were as good as I have had anywhere, and our server, Walter, was professional and excellent!

We ordered the clam chowder and soup of the day and they were both excellent! Our server was very friendly and accommodating - we would certainly go back - the dinner menu looked awesome

The boat trip was very nice, plenty of room, friendly service, so very relaxing. Food was similar to a chamber of commerce dinner. Buffet style, ok, but the eggs were not great and main dishes (ham and roast beef) were both overcooked. Was a waste...More
