The best waterfront spot in the area!

We had a happy pre-wedding event here, an impromptu drop-in for 20 to 30 out-of-town guests who arrived the day before the rehearsal dinner. The waterfront setting is fantastic and waitstaff are terrific! We've been here in a much smaller group at other times for live music or dinner specials and... read more

Food was decent but overpriced but you go for the view. Unfortunately our server could tell us nothing about any food on menu nor the local wine nor beer but we still enjoyed with location on the lake.

Four of us were visiting the area and saw this restaurant advertised so we decided to check it out. Well, it was great! Of course we had the perfect sunny day to sip our wine and enjoy the meal with great conversation. The staff was very friendly and helped with the selections, all of which were wonderful. I would advise... More

Lovely informal place along Keuka lake.Sat right out on lake, enjoyed drinks and excellent burgers and fries. Both their seasoned and sweet potato fries were very tasty. Very good food and service.

Had lunch here while out wine tasting. I had hoped for a good seafood restaurant to go with the fine wines we had been drinking, but it was not to be. The menu seems to lack anything special - even the fish tacos, they can't decide between grilled or fried fish so they put both in there. The Asian slaw... More

My wife and I enjoy visiting the area once a year and dined here last summer. We did leave a review on how amazing it was to sit out on the deck and enjoy the sights, food and drink of this fantastic family run restaurant. However, this year we came back and it was even better!! They redesigned the restaurant... More

Very nice little restaurant right on the docks (many patrons boat in). We visited for lunch and had a great time. Lots of tap specialty beers, good portions and very attentive service. Granted, we were the only ones in the restaurant mid-afternoon on a weekday, but still great service.

We enjoyed a Sunday lunch at the Waterfront. Lovely setting for summer on Keuka Lake. Food is very good. The server was very good and encouraged us to stay and enjoy the view of Keuka Lake. We even watched an eagle fly up the lake to the Bluff Point! Kristi was our server. If I remember correct.

The new atmosphere of the waterfront is incredible and makes it such a wonderful place to go to when at the lake. The new menu has a variety of options for all eaters.
