We usually have a few meals here when traveling Lake Ontario by boat. In the past, the Restaurant and Inn were getting tired, but the food kept calling us back. We have been hearing the great stories about it since it reopened this year.

Lots of improvements and a great modernization of the bar area. Great to see the patio remains untouched.

The new menu offers pretty well anything that a diner would want and at decent prices. They now offer daily specials that all look great to me. Tonight was wing night or meatloaf. The wings were good (10 for $6) and filling.

The servers are all young and pretty enthusiastic - nice to see for a change.

If you are in the area, stop by for a terrific meal and have it on the patio.

Have had lunch there a few times and it seems the new owners are trying to get the menu better but food is inconsistent. Not a great selection of food. Service is excellent and staff are accommodating but it will take time to get things right.

The remodel and restoration of this beautiful building is great. The food was very good. Service was a little slow. I think they were surprised at the Fourth of July crowd. But we will be back

My husband and I went here for the 1st time since the restaurant changed hands. We were only there a couple of times before and that was years ago. I ordered the filet and myhusband the scallops. I have to say I’ve had better. My mashed potatoes and vegetables were good but not out of the ordinary. My steak was cooked the way I wanted but not a lot of flavor-and, not all that tender for a filet.My husband liked his scallops but not the sand he was also chewing. The waitress didn’t even ask if we wanted dessert and as the menu was so limited I wondered if they even offered it! Drinks were good. I don’t think we’ll go back though. Disappointing.
