Usually, have a good meal and experience, however, on the Saturday of Labor Day weekend not so good! No one met us at the hostess station either inside or out....took way too long to be served and the meals were so-so. My son-in-law got a hamburger that was raw! My fish was over done and grand daughters chicken on her... More

We were invited here because there was a wedding in town and being here was part of the festivities. The weather was beautiful and the employees seemed very nice. We ordered a burger and plenty of beer. They had live entertainment (the singer was horrible!), but it was live music and it seemed to be perfect just the same. Affordable... More

My family of 12 recently had dinner at the the Waterfront for my parent's 50th wedding anniversary. The service was excellent as was each and every meal! Their chicken Marsala and Alfredo sauce is the best I've ever had!! The atmosphere is like no other as we dined on the water. It was a wonderful way to celebrate!! Thank you... More

Hard working family is there to please their customers. Great food, reasonable prices and being right on the lake makes your stay relaxing and enjoyable.

I have been visiting Keuka Lake my entire life, as have my parents before me, and my family and I had one of our most memorable meals at The Waterfront Restaurant. It was easily accessible by boat, and we were greeted immediately and friendly. Even the trainees were awesome! Our waitress Wendy went out of her way to make sure... More

I've been visiting Keuka Lake every summer for years now, and usually pop into The Waterfront to eat, drink and enjoy the deck multiple times each trip. You can't beat the views of the lake from the deck, there are boat docking spots, and the setup's especially fun when they have live music (the Irish band the Town Pants is... More

We visited the Waterfront restaurant while spending a week at the Manor House on Keuka Lake.This is a wonderful family owned restaurant. The atmosphere was pleasant and casual. It appeared to be the spot frequented by the locals in the area. The menu allowed us to select pub fare or entrees. I ordered the Chicken Marsala and my husband ordered... More

We have been there before; once last fall. It was too chill to sit on the deck, but the dining room was fine. The food was good, and we enjoyed it. But now, in August, it was a nice day, and we decided to tool around and go Hammondsport, with no plan in mind. It's only about 20 miles from... More

We recently visited the Waterfront on two separate occasions. A Sunday Clam bake and a Monday Celebration with the Town Pants. I must say our visit's are now a part of our vacation memories. From the moment we arrived we were greated by a young man helping us dock our boat. Making us feel like they had been awaiting our... More

With a gorgeous view of the lake it is both a romantic and friendly place. This family-run establishment has been going strong for over 20 years, good menu, excellent food, reasonable prices. The Sunday clambake in the summer is fabulous along with the music. An incredible hangout for locals and visitors alike.
