Showed up on a beautiful day with a party of 6. On any given day that is a easy $100 check. That being said we were met by a terrible maitre d. Who informed us it was only a 20 to 30 minute wait which was okay. One hour later we were yet to have been seated. long story short... More

My family started on the patio, but came in as it got chilly. The food was good (I had the sesame crusted tuna steak), but the highlight was the friendly, accommodating waitress. She brought anything we asked for, and suggested desert, which we normally don't get. All of it was a fun experience in a cheery place! The windows on... More

Great food, terrible staff. I was waited on by Judy and she was argumentative when SHE got our food wrong. Never going there again.

We had a fair meal here. My wife's meal was very good. My steak was overdone, but passable. The waitress asked twice how I wanted it cooked and still did not get it right. We were there on a Friday for supper - it was very noisy - loud music. Service was good - nice view even though it was... More

90 degrees at home, we met family at Dockside Grill to enjoy riverside dining. Quickly informed three dinners not available in addition to blacked out 5 items on paper menu. Soon found server didn't know how to take bar orders (had to check with absent owner on requests, costs) Requesting Sauvignon Blanc and Ketel One became a catastrophe. Rancid pineapple... More

I was so excited about trying this place, only to be disappointed. Don't come on your boat and just sit at a table, because you will be ignored, but you dont have much of a choice, nobody greets you! The servers are high school kids, or really old scary ladies. They have no clue what theyre doing. The food comes... More

While staying at a relatives Cottage on Oneida Lake we happened upon a "Diamond in the Ruff," the Calypso Cay in Brewerton. Saw the sign on the left over the bridge but missed the left turn... so glad we turned around because our effort proved to be worth it. Great food, service and a fun atmosphere at reasonable prices, couldn't... More

We originally visited Calypso Cay when it first opened and it was great. Then we visited after other management took over. The service went downhill, the food - yuk! Had these terrible spices in them. Bleck! and the beer - my husband's first glass was full of vinegar! BUT NOW!!! YAY!!! NONE OF THAT! We sat outside on a lovely... More

The best looking bar in the area, but..........great bar, bad food, wrong type of servers. This is a tropical themed etablishment, yet the servers are biker bar types. All tattooed, biker style hair, etc. They know the menu, but the first thing you see are tats, piercings, etc. An immediate red flag. Music is so bad. the cook and dish... More

The perfect setting for a relaxing evening on the water. Open space, plenty of room and very friendly atmosphere. They have a nice variety of drink choices....but the food was my focus. Starting with guacamole, DELICIOUS! A very good size helping with a special ingredient that you have to go there to try, you will ask for more. My daughter... More
