I have eaten here many times and it is always great! My favorite is oysters, a cold one and then their lamb chops but their menu is full of really good food. Nice setting and in the good weather sit outside by the water.

Had dinner with a group of friends were in town for an event. The venue, outside along the Erie Canal was fantastic but the food was mediocre. Had a Ceasar salad to start which was basic. Ordered the fillet of beef as my main. While the steak was very good the sides were not great for the price. Plus the meal was lukewarm when served. Somewhat disappointed.

Erie canal area is such a significant part of history. Enjoy a gourmet meal in a quaint atmosphere. Awesome wait staff. Historic inside. Outdoir seating with shade. Fantastic menu. The dessert was decadent and perfect. Great spot to sit and relax over a meal with a beer and friends. No rush.

We selected this restaurant to celebrate our anniversary and could not have been happier with our choice.

The food was excellent (my husband and I both had steaks that were cooked exactly as we had ordered). Our server was efficient and friendly and very attentive throughout the evening. It was quite warm on the evening we were there so we opted to sit outside on the patio near the canal. Perfect!

This was rated #2 in places to eat in Rochester and we happened to stop there for lunch. We sat outside and they host was very accomodating. Lunch was good and it's a beautiful place on the canal.
