Wow! Great service and great food!

We were at Nolan's early on a Wednesday night, so it was quiet and we were seated immediately. The waitress listed the specials, and gave us plenty of time to look over the menu, we never felt rushed. I chose broiled scallops with spinach and tomatoes with asiago cheese, and sweet potato wedges... read more

Went there last night 1/22/16, The food was good. However, my overall experience was taken back by the fact that I had to clean the bathroom before I could use it!!! There was urine all over the seat!!! I told the waiter when I came out but he didn't seem to concerned! If you are only going to have 1... More

This restaurant is located in close proximity to the lake, right by the entrance to the Inn on the Lake. Nolan's has it own parking lot. We visited for lunch and a glass of wine. The food was very tasty and fresh. The wine was properly chilled. The locale is clean and friendly.

Nolan's offers many choices on their menu but seems to excel with steaks and prime ribs. Salads were average, as was chicken parm. The prime ribs were quite good. Popular location and we were happy a table was vacated since we didn't have a reservation. As I said, pleasant but nothing special.

Stopped in for lunch at the recommendation of the neighboring Wine and Culinary Center, which was not open for lunch. As many other reviewers wrote, there is nothing bad and service is fine, but there is not much else to elevate it. We had a turkey melt sandwich and a pulled pork sandwich, the latter being a special for the... More

Been here several times. No gluten free menu, that's stinks for me. Although they try to make items gluten free, they don't really take it seriously. Other guests have enjoyed it.

I bring friends here all the time with rave reviews from all. The menu is very diverse and every dish is a delight. The wine menu is above average, too. This is my favorite place to go and hang out with friends in the summer because of the lake access but it's also a favorite place to go and celebrate... More

Stopped here for lunch on a Sunday afternoon after a weekend in the Finger Lakes. Was seated in the enclosed patio and enjoyed the 2 different soups of the day & Calamari app to share. The soups were homemade & served hot. Very rich and flavorable. Calamari with hot peppers and served in a white wine sauce was excellent. Service... More
