New Years Eve

We went to Borio's New Years eve. We go there a lot in the summer but this is the first winter visit. We got there at 8pm and only had to wait a few minutes for our table. The waitress we had was very good. She got us drinks and told us what specials they had. We ordered a dozen... read more

Lunch or dinner, we enjoy the relaxed atmosphere and great menu that Borio's offers. The view is the best on the south shore of Oneida Lake.

We had a party of 7. December 6th. Wait staff was terrific. No pressure to eat or to leave. Bloody Mary was very tasteful. Variety of food was plentiful. If you left hungry, it's your own fault. We will return. BTW... it was recommended by word of mouth.

We just had a baby shower brunch at Borios and had a great time. Th customer service was excellent the food was great and they bent over backwards to make the whole experience perfect. We could not have asked for more and will definitely be back in the future.

Since Borios is on Oneida Lake, it is best over the summer for appetizers, drinks, and music. We have been several times for dinner and the food is very average but have always had great service. Can't recommend the fish but it's not bad. Shrimp chicken and burgers are good though. Great atmosphere in the warmer months and the outdoor... More

My bride and I were pleased with Marty and the rest of the Borios staff with how professional and skillful they were on the night of our wedding. July 25th, 2015 was a special day for us. Everyone knows that there is a high probability that your wedding day could be stressful, but ours was not that at all. We... More

Was there for a wedding reception recently. Wedding was by the lake and the reception was in the restaurant. A beautiful time. Weather was nice, grounds are well maintained. Very scenic with the lake and islands in the background. The reception was super and the food Borios provided was outstanding. All the guests marveled about the quality of the food.... More

Attended a party here last night and was actually not expecting much for a buffet-what a surprise! Great selection, outstanding fish, hit and tasty. Good choice. I bet the menu items are great.

Evidently this restaurant is a local favorite and it certainly has a great view of the lake. The food was nothing out of the ordinary but the location made the meal worthwhile. I will return if back in the area because of the relaxing atmosphere. Service was a little slow but I was on vacation and didn't mind.
