The location of this restaurant is great, but the food is average. The staff lacks training. They look and act like they are still in high school. Our waiter did not follow up with us. We asked for bread, but he never gave it to us. We were staying at the hotel so we had "free breakfast" there the next... More

The restaurant is in a great location, overlooking the lake. The day we went it was raining therefore we sat inside which was ok. We had something simple, the sandwiches which were pretty good. I had the flowerless chocolate cake for dessert which was fresh and very good! Definitely will go back next time I'm in the area.

First the positives. This restaurant is in a great location and if you are seated in the right place (I wasn't) you'd have a lovely view of the lake. The crab stuffing in the Stuffed Shrimp is fantastic. And they have free wifi. I arrived at 6pm on a Sunday as a solo diner. The restaurant didn't seem to want... More

We were looking for place to eat breakfast on the lake and had omelets that were very good. Frankly, we were there for the view and the opportunity to sit outside on a lovely July morning. Two helpful hints - for breakfast , at least, and we were there mid-July, there is plenty of parking near the restaurant. The menu... More

Dined there with my wife after spending the day walking around Cooperstown. Just two blocks away from the Baseball Hall of Fame, it is convenient and worth the walk. First of all, the food is good. I had the French Onion soup which was very good. For my entree I enjoyed the clam strips. I almost went with the lobster... More

You can eat outside or in at this restaurant right on the lake. The view is beautiful - lake and part of the golf course. Food is good and people are very nice and friendly. We at breakfast and dinner here and enjoyed both.

Nice view of the lake. Great food. I had the French Onion soup and Prime Rib sandwich, the special of the day. Excellent. Tasted the Salmon chowder. Wow. Wish I had ordered that. They have free concerts next door every Sat. night in summer up to Oct.

Had dinner here after our boat ride on the outside deck. Food is very good and reasonable in price. Great scenery looking out on lake at sunset.

When in Cooperstown, I head for Lakefront Park first and the adjacent Lake Front Restaurant & Bar for lunch second. Both are situated adjacent to each other on the shore of beautiful Otsego Lake. Indoor and outdoor deck tables provide scenic views of the 40-foot conical Otsego Lake Lighthouse with flashing white light and the Glimmerglass Queen tour boat---both owned... More

The view looked all the way up Lake Ostego...the waitress was amazing (we told her we needed to get to the last trolley!), and managed to get our order out incredibly fast...the 'peel and eat' shrimp portion was incredibly generous, and the roasted beet salad was delightfully tasty...
