Great location, very good food!

It is unusual for us to go out and have the lady I am with finish her dinner and several times during the rest of the night say how much she would love some more! But that is what happened here. We both had great meals and it was the first time I had Cheesecake brulee-- what a treat. We... read more

We decided to try this again, because this time it might be better. There is a new chef and new manager, of course, since they go through new chefs and new managers at frequent intervals. It was different than last year, of course, with a new menu and all new people. The food was good, but not exceptional like it... More

Ate there twice during the weekend. Dinner for a large group of 12 and breakfast for a group that grew and shrank over the course of the meal. Food was tasty, service was quite accommodating.

We had our extended family Thanksgiving dinner at The Shore at The Inn on the Lake. They had a wonderful buffet with turkey, prime rib, vegetables and sides, seafood, great salads, shrimp, and delicious desserts. They also had chicken fingers and other selections for the kids. The service was excellent, and we enjoyed the view of the lake. We're eaten... More

Every Fall our group of 5 very good friends try to get away for a weekend to decompress, enjoy some shopping, dining and lots of laughs. We did just that in a trip to Auburn and Skaneateles on Sat. and Sunday 11/01/14 -11/02/14. After a great time, we decided to stop at The Shore at the Inn on Canandaigua Lake... More

The restaurant was beautiful. Service was slow though there were only a few folks there. Food was good but not great. It was expensive for what we got.

We headed to the outdoor bar while waiting for a table to become available - it was nice to sit by the lake, people watch, and enjoy our drinks. We were seated at a nice table outdoors, which still have us a great view of the lake. Dinner was delicious - all of us ordering something different, and no complaints... More

It had potential. A beautiful setting overlooking the lake on a Saturday afternoon,and a lunch that tells me to never go back, at least not any time soon. I brought a friend from Washington to show her our area, and we decided to have lunch here. I ordered a chicken salad sandwich on a croissant. The chicken salad was dry... More
