I enjoyed lunch with friends on the outdoor dining area on a pleasant afternoon. Service was excellent, nice choices on the lunch menu, something for everyone but I chose a shrimp caesar wrap with potato salad - very fresh ingredients and very tasty. I felt the price was reasonable and we will go again. (our group meets every month.)

Pros: Seated fast, dishes are cleared quickly, food comes out quickly, steak was juicy. Cons: There is no view of the lake as the name might imply, waitress was confused about the specials, gave me the wrong salad dressing and forgot steak sauce, lobster came out not only cold but undercooked, I also question the origin and freshness of the...

I was glad I gave Nolan's a try. We didn't want a pricey meal, but Nolans has a great selection at all price points with something for everyone. The calamari was particularly good. Service was impeccable, and the atmosphere comfortable.

We just finished celebrating 2 wedding anniversaries with family at Nolan's. There were 15 of us-which can be challenging in terms of service and food quality. Nolan's far exceeded our expectations in both areas. We had 2 pleasant waitresses and assorted extra wait staff to see to our needs. We were all served together and everyone's meal was delicious.

I don't know why I ever decided to choose the fried seafood basket, but it just sounded good and it was fabulous...the shrimp were large and tailless, the scallops were juicy and the fish perfect. Allie & Steve kept things lively, fun and yet professional at the bar. The atmosphere was great and the bar and side tables beautiful

Nolands is second to none, and extraordinary! To say, it's within walking on the Main, not far from Inn on the Main where we stayed, and the entire menu was delightful. Short to say our server was very prompt with everything and our food was as we ordered, to the owners of Nolands, you have nothing but the best employees!

Nolan"s moved near the State Boat Launch on the same street and the food quality has dropped and the prices remain too high for average quality. Far better food options at Eric's Office or Bloomfield"s Cheap Charlies. Not even a good lakefront view.

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
