The view from the lake-front dining room is beautiful. OUr favorite food here was the crabcakes. Good beet salad too.

Wonderful place with a beautiful view of the lake. Excellent food and cocktails. We will for sure be going there again next year when we visit Canandaigua!

I had a table of 7 people who tried to eat there on July 7th. The dining room was empty other than one other table who happen to sit down after we did. Incidentally, they got there food before us. We ordered an appetizer and beverages which took a long time to get. We place our food order and had to wait for over an hour which was annoying to all at the table. No apology was given as to why there was a long wait. We would never eat there again. Oh, there was a school board meeting and dinner there a week after we departed and they experienced the same long wait as we did. Lastly, the menu said onion soup-there wasn't any to be had. The menu said BLT sandwiches which we ordered and got a sandwich with no bacon in it. Go elsewhere to eat if you can.

Had lunch here with my mom and sister. We walked in from the waterfront after checking out the Sandbar, and the hostess came off as rude (since we didn’t enter through the hotel.) We were able to order quickly, but then waited just over 30 minutes for our food. I got the grilled chicken melt, which wasn’t awful but it was soggy & nothing special. We sat outside, so the view was lovely. I guess come here if you want the lake view without impressive service/food. Personally, wouldn’t go back.

My most favorite restaurant to go to in the summertime. It is situated lakeside with a nice patio, has great service and an innovative menu that changes with the availability of local seasonal ingredients. As the only restaurant - other than hot dog stands- on the lake - and one that offers fine dining, you would expect the prices to be higher. A nice luncheon choice, a glass of wine and gratuity is under $30. The portions are not skimpy. Food is well presented but not fussy.

I also give this restaurant kudos for offering a good selection of local Finger Lakes wines. Way too many restaurants in the upstate area ignore the local wines- many that are award-winning and reasonably priced.

It will be sad that this restaurant (the entire resort complex) will be closed for remodeling for about 18 months. There is nothing like it in Canandaigua - or even in Rochester - the large metro area parked right on Lake Ontario. The nearest to fine dining offered on Lake Ontario is a restaurant that brings you water in a paper cup and silverware wrapped in a paper napkin.

Hurry back The Shore.
