Having been to Nolan's at their previous location, I was looking forward to dining there again after their move. As expected, lunch was very tasty, but I have to mention some oversights by the staff. We were not warmly greeted upon arrival. We requested outdoor seating and were told that the patio was full. I had to wonder then why... More

My boyfriend and I were at Canadaigua Lake for the day and ended up at Nolan's for dinner. It was a Sunday and unfortunately, there were no tables available on the patio so we had to eat inside. The patio was very airy and I'm sure would have made the experience better. We both had a steak dinner and it... More

In my opinion, there is no better place in town than Nolan's. From the top down, the staff goes out of their way to make every experience as customer friendly as possible. The pretty blonde bartender is always smiling and the the little peanut hostess is always as friendly as possible. The owner goes out of his way to visit... More

Great menu! The service was great and the food was fantastic. The flavors were clean and vibrant. The selection wasn't overwhelming but it seemed like there was something for every taste! Wonderful dessert selection especially the cream puff. We went there twice in one week, really appreciated Nolan's after a dinner at another restaurant nearby that wasn't very good at... More

If you like the typical American restaurant menu, Nolan's is a fine pic. An hour wait for a patio table so we ate inside - clean paint, but still the bones of previous establishments. Perfectly fine food, but nothing new or exciting.

I will come straight out and let you know that our server, Alyssa, sucked. Everything that came out of her mouth sounded rehearsed. She never picked up a plate from our table, waited on the busser (who was busting his behind!) To take care of it. We had to ask for refills on water.... why? Food was good.....

We were never impressed with the food ant Nolan's when located on Lakeshore Blvd. We had gone once for lunch and once for dinner, it was just average, even though it was always packed. So we decided to try it again after the move to it's new location. They did a good job renovating the space, but it is still... More

Although their new location does not offer the view of the previous location the food and service are always very good. We have dined here many time and never had a bad experience. The food is always well prepared and the portions are generous. We enjoy sitting on the deck and still do at the new location. They are in... More

First impressions are extremely important. Upon our arrival the hostess offered No smile and seemed annoyed that we did not have a reservation (on a tues night 6/8/14.) to the point of rolling her eyes at us. thankfully we gave it a go anyways. We were told by the hostess it would be at least a 30 minute wait because... More
