A great lunch

After wandering through downtown looking for a lunch spot we derive here and we're glad we did. Great food, atmosphere and service. Our waitress, Dawn, described everything so well we wanted it all! Sandwiches and soups were great and well priced.

We had never dined at Nolan's before, although we had tried stopping in once when it was closed. This was actually quite an nice and unexpected pleasure, because this restaurant exceeded our expectations by quite a bit. We arrived in the middle of the rush hour for dining, but yet we were able to get a table inside quite easily.... More

On Saturday we decided to give this restaurant a try. We were really glad that we did. The restaurant has a large outside patio with a partial view of the lake. We decided to sit outside and enjoy the scenic view and warm weather. The service was quick and friendly. The hardest part of the evening was deciding what to... More

The food was well below average and a dinner for two was above $80. This was without appetizer and dessert, but with three glasses of wine Service was fine, but the broccoli Alfredo was not close to being flavorful. The special of the evening was good, but pricy, salads were very fresh. I would say that there are at least... More

We enjoyed this place so much, we ate there twice over the weekend. The first time we sat outside, and the second time we ate in the atrium. The oysters Rockefeller were excellent and the casar salad was so large I had to take some home. I really enjoyed the seafood chowder and it had large chunks of seafood in... More

Nolan's has the best food around by a landslide. Anything you order off the menu is great but for myself it's hard to pass on the prime rib. The staff there is awesome and the restaurant itself has a great environment!

We went to Nolan's to celebrate our anniversary. It was a lovely night and we sat outside. The service was excellent and the meal was wonderful. We went with another couple and everyone had something different to eat and all was delicious.

6 of us gathered on a Monday evening for my daughter's birthday celebration. All appetizers were excellent. We also all enjoyed each entree. The presentation was excellent and the food was very good. Our server was very attentive and offered just the right amount of attention. This continues to be my favorite restaurant in Canandaigua.
