Nice menu, although somewhat limited, extremely well prepared and very constant. I enjoy the plank salmon, chicken Marsala and the pork chop. Great atmosphere and good service.

We were in the area for a romantic weekend getaway. This restaurant was recommended by our B&B. We made a reservation that afternoon and was granted a table for that evening. We arrived on time and was promptly given a table in the atrium. This is where it all falls apart! We were seated by another group of six, a... More

We visited Nolan's while in the Finger Lakes area. It was about 40 minutes from where we were staying. The entree I had was generous, but the lobster tail was overcooked & dry. The rest if my meal was good-pasta & shrimp. The others in our party were happy with their entrees. They had veal parmagean & scallops. I will... More

You just can't go wrong at Nolan's. Everything is done to perfection there. The atmosphere is welcoming and relaxing. The service is excellent. And you just can't beat the food there! This is our go-to place and always take out of town guests there. I highly recommend it!

We dined at Nolan's on a busy Saturday night. We arrived early and without a reservation. It was already very busy and all outside seating was taken. We ended up having to take a high top table in the bar area. (Note to always make a reservation for Friday and Saturday nights.) The food and service are always very good... More

Within walking distance to the Inn On The Lake. I was able to walk from the Inn and felt safe. The steak I ordered was seasoned and cooked perfectly. The spaghetti squash side was wonderful. The service was great from beginning to end. Highly recommend.

Attractive new building. Good service (our waitress was very kind and helpful although the receptionist seemed preoccupied with admin). We both chose steak and it was delicious. I had prime rib and my wife had filet mignon and it was a competition as to which tasted the best. Really enjoyed it. Desserts were good, too. We will go back.

My favorite restaurant in the Finger Lakes! They make an amazing tuna steak (my favorite) and pretty good salmon. Also the porkchops are awesome with a stack of onion rings on top. We are also using Nolan's to cater our wedding. Never had a bad experience here.

Absolut Shrimp & Scallops was excellent!! Nice jumbo shrimp. The wife enjoyed her Fillet Mignon as well. The restaurant gift certificate we received from the Inn on the Main, as part of our Wine Tour/ B&B package, made it more affordable for us. Quality of food was well worth it anyways!!

Had a great dinner at Nolan's just a few days ago. The food was excellent. The service was great and the prices were very reasonable. We definitely recommend this place and will definitely go there again on our next trip to the area.
