We have dined here to celebrate a success...food is always excellent, staff is very cordial and professional. Always enjoyable experience. Right now they are in process of relocating...leaving beautiful lake side building so not sure if accommodations can compare, but I know the food will still be exceptional. .

But we expect the food and service will be top notch as always. Be sure to try the texas fried pickles! It has always been our choice for special occasions, and it was worth going to just for the deck seating on not so special occasions. The help has always been stellar: not just friendly, but incredibly professional. You can... More

My husband and I celebrated his birthday at Nolan's on what was their last night in their current location for a long time. We had no idea and I'm sad to see them move. The food and service was great as always. I can't say enough about their peanut butter pie. I go out of my way to get it... More

My wife dined here in March on the recommendation of the owners of The Chalet where we were staying. We had an excellent experience. The atmosphere is casual and comfortable with good spacing between tables. The bar was nicely separated from the restaurant which made having a quiet conversation possible. We had a nice table by the window overlooking the... More

The trait I look for in any restaurant is consistency in food quality and service. Both of these can be found at Nolan's. From being greeted at the door when you arrive, to being thanked by not only your server, but the hostesses and many times one of the owners, it's a welcoming environment. The view of the lake is...

Half the reason for going to this restaurant is the ability to sit by a window and look out over beautiful Canandaigua Lake. The last time we went with a group of friends and family, it was to celebrate one of the kids birthdays. We brought a cake with us and were told that they would not serve it since... More

I love to dine at Nolan's. I don't go often as it's moderately expensive, but every time the selections aren't just good, they are delicious. The dishes are prepared with the time and honor offered in creating great dishes.. Love every bite.

Nolan's is the best all around restaurant in Canandaigua. They have a grilled pork chop that is absolutely wonderful. Their wine list features many of the best Finger Lakes wines. The location with its view of the lake is a delight. I highly recommend Nolan's.

I love the service, atmosphere and food at Nolan's. I wish they still made their fish fry with haddock. Also, the bread that comes to the table is quite delicious but could be hotter! Minor details; well run restaurant over all.
