The service was slow, & after our food came, the waiter never checked in with us again. The food was o.k., but certainly not worth the price.

Almost family style seating for the breakfast buffet. Nice buffet including an omelette station. Everything else was in a chafing dish. Great service for beverages. The kitchen carried soy milk

My husband had a long-bone pork chop with apple sauce and roasted cauliflower & asparagus medley with caesar salad and stuffed mushrooms to start. I had shrimp cocktail, veal schnitzel with mushroom gravy, creme fraiche mashed potatoes and corn pudding. Both dinners were supurb, and I was ready to cry that there was no way to save the leftover schnitzel,... More

This is a lovely venue, overlooking Lake Chautauqua (of course). We came in late, when they should have been closing. There is usually a pop show on Friday nights in season and that night it went way over. The staff was extremely gracious -- there were a few other guests -- and seated us at a great table on the...

We almost didn't eat here because it is a bit pricey but are very glad we did. We ate on the patio with a great view of the lake. I had a special - the macaroni and cheese with lobster and bacon ($27). It was really excellent. For sides I had herb-roasted mushrooms and French fries. The fries were nothing... More

The food is only so-so but the ambiance is fantastic. Dining overlooking the lake, on their great big Victorian porch, is a real treat.

We ate there twice and both meals were well done. My mom and I both enjoyed our meals. The view of the lake was nice while we ate.

We dined at 5 p.m. and the place was nearly empty. The main dining room is large and open with beautiful views. We were waited on immediately by a very friendly young lady, Brianna. We ordered wine which was uncorked table-side (as it should be) by another of the wait staff, a young man who made pleasant conversation with us... More

I enjoyed the scallops and seasonal veggies. A lovely dinner if your expectations aren't too high. Eat outside if you have the choice. Relax and take in the setting and appreciate the beauty and history of the building and surrounding Institution.
