We recently had Sunday lunch at this lovely spot in the country. Farm to Table food, all natural and delicious. Very good service and food and drink. Would go again if I am in the area.

Went for my sisters birthday on a Friday afternoon. We were all pleasantly surprised by how pretty and spotless everything was including the restrooms ! Great menu choices and everything was fresh and local. We were pleased with all of our food and the server was attentive and friendly. Will definitely be back !

What a lovely place. We called on a Saturday night at 7:30 asking for a table and were squeezed in with a warm welcome. We didn't want a huge dinner so ordered 2 appetizers each. All vegetables were grown on the farm we could see from our lovely window table. The tomato salad was juicy and full of color and... More

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 the adjacent farm. The wine list includes a number... 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.
