We were very happy with the food,delicious. I had read some not so good reviews, so wondered how the food would be. We had a great table at the outdoor patio,beautiful view of the lake and the service was fine

They seem to provide molasses as a side to every dish on the breakfast menu -- perhaps staff gets stuck in it? The Restaurant is extremely reasonably priced for breakfast, especially for a hotel, and the views are wonderful. There's plenty of time to enjoy the view as service is insanely slow if you sit outside. Breakfast menu was delicious... More

We visited on the 4th of July with a reservation. The restaurant was packed and so was the sand bar. Our food took over an hour a half and was not that good when we did receive it. Our server, Dana, was extra accommodating and had the manager (we did not get his name but he was very tall) come... More

This was probably the worst meal I have ever had not to mention the service. The food was horrible. We had to send one plate back and we have never done that before, Our waitress took a partial order then took another 20 minutes to return for the rest of it. She herself never served us a thing. The only... More

I'm not sure why I keep giving this place second chances- I think it is because of the view. I love to eat on the lake. Today was a typical meal at the Inn: wrong food, out of food, two hour wait to receive food, and in the end a pretty tasteless meal. Also overcharged (was corrected). I want to... More

We had a wonderful outdoor table with a view of the lake and all the festivities going on in the tent too. Great apps. Nice waitress.

We decided to celebrate some winnings from the local casino and people asked for a nice place to eat. I suggested The Shore since it was right on the water and the food is very good. We were not disappointed! Be sure if you plan on going during the summer that you make a reservation. They apparently only make enough... More

Loved this place. The food and ambiance was amazing, you just can't beat the view of the lake. Our server, Dana, definitely made our whole experience, she was excellent! It was beyond our expectations, can't wait to go back!

Our dinner the other night was fantastic! I could have dined on just the rolls alone! Each of us had a great meal and the service was excellent. It's nice to be able to enjoy fine dining but in an atmosphere that feels warm and relaxing. Looking forward to dinner and drinks there again soon

My husband and I live in Pittsford, NY and thought we would get away for the weekend but stay close to home. Steve was incredibly friendly and helpful, probably the best experience i have ever had checking into a hotel. The room was clean, a nice size but a little left to be desired. VERY tired decor especially for the... More
