Nice dinner on our way to Niagara Falls

We saw this place along Lake Erie and decided to give it a shot for dinner. We were lucky enough to get one of the last outside tables. Great atmosphere with the lake waves lapping against the shore and the sun setting in the background. The oysters on the half shell were very fresh and good. The... read more

My daughter and I just happened to stop in and we were not disappointed. Our server, Maureen, was very attentive and happy to recommend a dish for dinner. The portions were sumptuous and the food quality was excellent. A nice lake view made the experience complete.

The food is good but everything is filthy. They need to hire a cleaning company. Cant imagine if restaurant is dirty what is the kitchen like.

We have been coming here and enjoying the atmosphere, food and staff for over 25 years. We stopped tonight and my wife ordered the Buffalo Chicken sandwich and had a difficult time eating, it wasn't cooked (was a thick piece) and told waitress and nothing. On the way out after bill was paid, asked another waitress to speak to one... More

Stopped in here for lunch with my elderly mom. Sat outside right by the water. Super great spot. Don't know why I've never stopped here before. Had the nicest waitress, Eileen. Had the best fish fry I've ever had. Also loved the fries & coleslaw that came with it. My mom had the New England clam chowder which I tasted... More

Good food, cold drinks and incredible view. Worth waiting for an outside table although you won't have to if you go to an early dinner but probably will if you plan on seeing the glorious sunset. Good Buffalo staples, fish fry, burger and steaks. The real show stopper here is the view. Luckily they don't let the view do all... More

A great restaurant with awesome food. It has a patio that is on the lake! Very relaxing with a wonderful view as well as great food. Definitely need to stop by if you are in the area.

We came for dinner with a view of Lake Erie. We arrived on Sunday evening and it was prime rib night. We both ordered prime rib medium rare. One was delivered as ordered and the other was delivered medium. I sent it back and requested my original prep. When they brought out the second one it was a little more... More

We had an enjoyable and delicious lunch while enjoying the Lake Erie and Buffalo scenery. The food was very good, with large portions. We were able to share a Rueben sandwich and homemade potato salad. Others had and enjoyed the "Hoak's hamburger" and "beef on week". The New England clam chowder was wonderful. The staff was very efficient and friendly.... More
