Wanted to have a look at the lake, and needed to eat. We always enjoy a dinner or cocktail cruise on the water. Captain Bill's looked good for this small town. I had the prime rib and scallops which were much better than I expected. The service was first class and the boat crew were professional and friendly. I would do this every visit to the Glen.

Take the one hour tour of Seneca Lake for a relaxing and informative excursion. Your hosts are very friendly and anxious to share their knowledge of Lake facts and history. It's really a pleasant diversion.

What a way to experience Seneca Lake!
The boat was medium size, just perfect for enjoying Seneca Lake with a bunch of friends... And a dozen or so others.
The boat ride was smooth and offered fantastic views of the shores of Seneca Lake. The narration provide interesting historical facts as we passed the many notable landmarks.
We enjoyed a delicious roast beef luncheon on board. So plentiful, it was more like a small beef roast. Cooked perfectly and served with gravy that was so good it made you want to lick the plate! The potatoes and vegetables we equally delicious. Our meal started with a cold, crisp salad served with warm buns. Our yummy lunch ended with brownies and coffee.
Great service, too.
Be sure not to miss this Seneca Lake adventure!

After getting reservations and making plans for weeks for a special occasion cruise, a few days before the trip we were refunded our money with no explanation or alternate date! Very disappointed. A little bit of courtesy goes a long way.
