Not a bad table in the place. Great food proudly prepared using ingredients obtained locally. My husband had the scallops and said they were to die for. I had halibut, which for some reason, is not offered often in this area. Yummmmm

Wonderful atmosphere, located on the lake, great accommodations should you wish to spend an evening (or more). Very rustic village with a wonderful women's shop directly across the street from the Inn...interesting wine choices form local vineyards...a must see for folks visiting central NY...MacKensie Childs just up the road

If the weather is fine, you'll have the best of the best: eating on a terrace overlooking Cayuga Lake is a reward by itself. The service is excellent, the food is delicious, and the price is right, no matter if you eat outdoor or in the wonderful dining room, which overlooks the lake anyhow. The Aurora Inn is a great...

The Aurora Inn is beautiful, and although we stayed at EB Morgan House, breakfast is included in the room rate at the Aurora Inn which is also owned by Wells College. Breakfast is delicious, but dinner is an experience not to be missed.
