Passing through the area on a sunny and warm afternoon and decided to try Borio's. Waited for a table outside and glad we did. Great view of Oneida Lake. I had chicken quesadilla and my husband had a chicken sandwich. Both were fine. Service was attentive. It was fairly busy at 4:30 on a Sunday so apparently it's a pretty... More

We've been going to Borio's for many years, as they have a wonderful view of Oneida lake. Some meals have been better than others, and we've tried just about everything, including buffets on special occasions. However, last night's Bullhead dinner was wonderful - these are seasonal fish in our area, usually served at only a few restaurants in late Spring.... More

Although we arrived at the restaurant 5 minutes before closing, the staff received us very warmly and did not rush us or make us feel as if we were putting them out. I had blackened pike with rice and my wife had scallops. Everything was great. very good salad bar too. We'd like to go back in summer or maybe... More

Met a friend here for dinner. We had a lot of catching up to do, and it was very nice that we were not rushed through our meal. The French Onion soup , which was not on the salad bar, was delicious . The salad bar was just a basic green salad bar with macaroni salad ,cole slaw and bread.

Great dinner with friends! We didn't have the great view, as we came at night and it was a snowstorm. The server was friendly and the food was delicious. The Chicken Cordon Bleu was cooked perfectly. They have a wide variety on the menu as well. Whether you want seafood, salad, pasta, etc. you will be able to find something.... More

For the second year in a row, we had our gymnastics banquet at Borio's. We love it there! The price per person is very reasonable, and the choices of food are very family friendly!! All ages and taste buds will love their cooking!!!

My wife loves their Fried Haddock. I had a very mediocre steak sandwich. At least it was cooked properly. The view was the best thing about the place .

This family run restaurant is and has been a favorite for us. Individual dining or big events like parties and Wedding reseptions! I've never had a bad meal at Borio's and have found the service top notch.

Had a delicious dinner tonight along with 12 other family members. Food was yummy, service wonderful, atmosphere comfortable. A bit noisy upon arrival but once the party of 12 next to us left it was much quieter. Beautiful view of the lake. Would definitely recommend!
