A favorite of ours

This restaurant has added a bar/appetizer special that has been quite popular. The restaurant is across the street from the lake. In the summer there are some nice views and in the winter there is a fireplace in the main dining room. Food is good and the wait staff is attentive.

This may be the prettiest restaurant in one of the nicest village settings anywhere. That's pretty much the end of anything positive that I can offer - sadly. I really wanted to enjoy this place, but couldn't. We stopped in on a late spring evening. They weren't especially busy. Let's call the service 'leisurely'. The menu same right out of... More

A tried and true "go to" restaurant choice for my family, year after year. Delicious food, good drinks, great service, friendly and invested owners. We always love a visit to this establishment.

Ye Olde Hare 'n Hounds on Chautauqua Lake in Bemus Point, NY takes you back a step in time. Fashioned after an old English Pub, it's one of the finest eating establishments in the county. Quiet, tasteful ambiance with outstanding service and excellent table fare. You'll be glad you stopped for a visit and a memorable meal.

There are not too many restaurants open during off season in Bemus Point. So this restaurant was not our first choice. Everything on the menu is pretty much A la cart. The atmosphere is elegant and has a beautiful view of the lake. The restaurant ran out of a wine that our table was drinking. I believe there was only... More

Stopped in to have "bar bites" before going to a show on the water front. Very nice place to eat, will go back and have a full meal soon.

It was less than overwhelming back then and it was even less so this time around. the atmosphere was lovely. The lighting perfect. The fireplaces lit. A warm and welcoming interior on a very cold and snowy night. We... More

Restaurant in a historical old English style home. Food quality is good but rather over priced. Surprisingly, establishment does not have proper wine glasses for the price.

The best service, excellent gourmet food and preparation, a classic "Old English" building that gives one the feeling of going back in time. Top notch Wine list. Great for a night out with the special people in your life.
