Fine Dining In a Lovely Country Setting

This is our favorite place to eat in the Skaneateles area. Although the mailing address is Auburn, it is less than 10 minutes from the center of Skaneateles Village, and absolutely worth the relatively short drive in the country. The food is outstanding, with many of the vegetable items grown on... read more

Recently had a lovely lunch here. Food is organic and very fresh tasting. Had the vegetable pasta, delicious. Good service, pleasant relaxing atmosphere. Limited menu but something for everyone. Feels like you are on vacation. Will be back for sure!

This gem of a restaurant is a real find if you're in the area. The food is amazing and the service old fashioned 'good.' Quiet place, on the farm, porch looked very inviting but is was raining when we got there so we didn't get to enjoy. Will definitely be back next year when we visit the Finger Lakes again.... More

The wine list includes organic choices and wines from the old world and new. The entrees are varied amd there are specials as well. the desserts are to die for and the pies frequently include fruit from the farm.

This is a unique experience. Many menu items are grown and raised on the farm.. All organically grown. Fabulous interior. Have visited several times, including the best Thanksgiving feast ever. Not to be missed if in the area, or even if you're not it is worth the trip.

My husband and I took a trip to Auburn (from Rochester) for lunch at Elderberry Pond as it was recommended by a friend. Lunch was Fantastic, crab cakes were real crab and not filler. Service was Friendly, beautiful setting. Looking forward to returning already.

I lunched at Elderberry Pond last Saturday. The location is a little hard to find but it's picturesque. We sat outside, started with the asparagus soup follow by the crab cakes and quinoa salad. The crab cakes were the star of the lunch. You couldn't beat the overall experience. Perfect for a clear summer day when you have time to... More

Everything was wonderful from beginning to end. The atmosphere was calming and the decor was very tasteful and the restaurant very clean. We were seated in the "Sunroom" by the window. Our waiter "Garrett" was very attentive and friendly. We ordered the two soups of the day which were the Butternut Squash and the Bacon with something Chowder. The butternut... More
