My wife and I go once a month and it is great every time. We love it so much we had our rehearsal dinner on the deck. No matter if it is a party of 2 for a romantic dinner or a wedding party of 30, they nailed it every time!! Awesome food,service and drinks. Add this to your must... More

Our Grandson took his girfriend to Nolans for Valentines Day. He told us how good it was and how nice the people were. He had two great meals and loved the whole experience so we decided to give it a try while we were in Canandaigua for business. We were either very late lunchers or very early dinner people and...

The food is good and a nice atmosphere. They have moved to a new location. The outdoor patio is great to enjoy a meal or a drink during the spring, summer and fall. I have been to Nolan's for personal and business lunches and dinners and have always received good service and food. The portions are a nice size and... More

This was our second visit to this restaurant in the past 4 months, and once again we can't say enough good about it. The service is above excellent and the food is also. My fiance and I both got the prime rib and both were cooked to perfection and we both ordered the baked potato which were both also excellent.... More

Food is delicious, service is friendly. Atmosphere at new location is warm, love the sunroom and the outside deck especially. Try the creme brûlée-served in a hard dark chocolate torte! Dawn is one of my favorite servers ever! Have been here for lunch and dinner every month with friends, family and just a dinner for two with my husband, always... More

I really like the new location. My waitress was attentive and extremely friendly. What I enjoy best about coming to Nolan's is the seafood. My fiancé and I usually split the fish & chips, shrimp cocktail and calamari (which is cooked to perfection). Nolan's is a great place to come to during the summer time, especially with our friends and... More

I honestly detest writing negative reviews but someone needs to realize the ISSUES here. I can't believe my latest experience. I'm appalled at how rude our waitress was and how terrible the food is now. If you think the standards of this restaurant are the same as they used to be, you're wrong. My girlfriend and I used to go... More

Very good food. EXCELLENT service. Seth was a delight. Save room for dessert! If you are looking for an appetizer the calamari is super yummy.
