We enjoyed a delicious lunch at Stonecutters lounge. We took a drive around Seneca Lake on a recent weekend. Part of the experience we wanted was to eat lunch on the water. While not exactly on-the-water, it was excellent. We had a beautiful view of the lake. The room has a club-like feel. There are few tables, a fireplace and a sunken bar, all of which enhance the view of the lake. We arrived around noon and only a couple of tables were occupied. It quickly filled.

For lunch our choices included onion rings, the crab fondue, the capicolla panini, and the cuban sandwich. Each of us enjoyed our selection. We traded bites and were equally impressed. I liked the deep-fried pickle. The service was very good, of the three or four people they worked as a team, if food for one table that was not theirs was ready it was served without hesitation by another member.

Ten or eleven dollars for a sandwich is more than we normally spend for lunch, but everything about the meal was delicious (including the suggested wine pairing from their vineyard). Afterward we sat in the sun on the patio. This was a great way to start our circuit around the lake. I want to return.

What a great place! We stumbled upon this gem by accident. We were checking out wineries in the area and found it. First of all the grounds are beautiful. Secondly, the wine they make was great. We ended up buying several bottles to take home with us.

We sat outside at lunch time by a fire and ordered some wine and lunch from the bar menu. Our lunch was awesome. We looked at what other people ordered and their food looked just as good as what we ate.

After a few more glasses of wine and checking out the grounds we tried to get a room because we did not want to leave. Sadly they were booked up with a wedding party.

We decided to eat dinner at the restaurant. Since it was my wife's birthday they actually set us up on the small half-round stone porch outside overlooking the grounds and lake. It was beautiful and we were the only ones sitting there. They even set up candles for us. It was very romantic and elegant.

They gave us a glass of complimentary champagne and took our order. We both ordered chefs specials (there was 4 to choose from). The food was cooked perfectly, delicious, and presented well.

In all it was a wonderful night. Wish we could have stayed the night though.

I've been going there for years. Its good not great. The original building is amazing. I've always felt you paid for the building not the food.

What a great place to eat or just have a drink and an appetizer. A more casual option, but still at the spectacular setting of Belhurst Castle. Nice spot if you are out on the Seneca wine trail or a super location from which to base your vacation. The bar "stools" are the best on which I have ever planted.
