Don't pass this reasonably priced restaurant by!

Reasonably priced, delicious food. My husband & I had the seafood chowder which was very tasty. Then we had the shrimp & scallops in a vodka sauce, also delicious. Of course, we had dessert which was a creme brulee in a dark chocolate bowl--we'd rather eat dessert than have a drink before... read more

Nothing fancy (nothing in this neck of the woods is) but the food was great and the service was just as good. We actually ate here twice (out of 5 nights in the area) because of the great food. We both had prime rib and lobster tail the first night that was exceptional. You can't beat the prices either!

Got up and left walked over to Nolan's and had a GREAT meal and GREAT service. If you want crappy service go to the Culinary... More

I have spent a lot of time in the Finger Lakes but not so much recently. I just purchased a place on Keuka Lake and was scouting out places in the area to take my friends when they visit. This restaurant has the atmosphere and food that I'm sure they will appreciate. Menu selections are broad and what I tried... More

We took our Granddaughter to Nolan's for her 18th birthday last Wednesday 7-15-2015. We made reservations to sit out on the deck and arrived promptly and were seated promptly. That was the last of the good. It was obvious from the start that the waitress was over booked as we waited for a significant amount of time to get our... More

Nolan's is a restaurant for everyone. You can order an excellent Prime Rib dinner, or a burger, and whatever you order, it will be enjoyable and served with a smile. They have daily specials and even a daily special cupcake! How fun is that??!! They also have a very extensive wine list. Be sure you make reservations if you plan... More

For such a highly popular restaurant, they need to have a much better wine list! The Asiago scallops were delicious, as was the 12 oz prime rib. Waitress was professional.

Stopped on spur of the moment, early dinner. Seated on open air deck. Menu not to my liking this evening so went with basic cheeseburger. Ordered medium, served well done, biggest issue was that without ketchup, lettuce, tomato it was very bland. Partner had onion soup, liked it, lobster cakes, very good. Take issue with carafe of water at table,... More

Nice atmosphere, pleasant waitstaff & delicious food. Ordered baked Brie as appetizer. Very tasty! For main entree we ordered prime rib & chicken florentine. Both meals were delicious & good sized portions. Well worth the $. Disappointed that restaurant was in a different location & not on water anymore, but food & exceptional service made up for it!

Really nice portions, affordable quality dining. My Chicken Florentine with sherry cream sauce was one of the best dishes I've ever had...anywhere.
