Went on Sunday evening for "Clammin & Jammin" special & it was a blast! Live music, great seafood & the gorgeous water!

Great food, atmosphere, & service. Would definitely go back again. Keuka Lake is gorgeous & this place is awesome. The massive deck is out over the water & boats, jet skis drive up & park, & even a pontoon airplane landed & came by! A lot of action & fun, & good food & craft beers!! Very nice... read more

I hate to write a negative review of any restaurant because I know restaurant staff work so hard. But the food was really not good. The Thai tuna cakes tasted like under-cooked frozen veggie burgers to me. And the "lightly breaded" calamari was seriously coated in heavy batter and deep fried. Thankfully, the staff was very nice and took the... More

Always great food, top notch service, the best restraint view on Keuka. If you are anywhere near Kauka Lake, make this food stop.

We visited The Waterfront for a special event with another couple and had an amazing time. The staff went above and beyond to make sure the venue was set up perfectly for this event. The food was great, the wait staff were very attentive and did a great job tending to the crowd prior to and during the event. The... More

We recently got married on Keuka Lake, and were looking for a nice spot on the water to have a rehearsal dinner the night before the wedding. We had many guests that were traveling from out of town, so we wanted them to enjoy the lake and the beautiful scenery. I had been in touch with Be Sable (the manager... More

After getting a recommendation from a local we came here. They have spectacular views of the water and drunk people on boats. There should be a no shirt no service rule as their were a couple drunk guys without shirts that parked their boat to drink. Food was not very good but service was good. Prices were reasonable.

Was this on a Sunday afternoon/evening? We have a limited 'clambake' menu during our weekly Clammin' and Jammin' from 4pm-8pm. Come join us another time to enjoy our full menu consisting of a wide array of delectable items. I can't speak in regards to the drunken shirtless wonders, however. Thank you More

We had a lovely lunch outside on the deck, next to the water. The waitress was friendly and the food was very good. Nth eye have music on Sunday nights. Their pulled pork sandwich and hamburgers with the mushrooms and cheese were delicious! We will definitely be making a return visit!

Food was amazing, atmosphere was unlike any I've experienced on this lake. Wait staff was friendly and courteous attended to or need even though they were very busy with a packed house. I highly recomend anyone traveling to Hammondsport make a stop at the Waterfront they won't be dissapointed.

There was a good selection of food choices, our service was great, the waitstaff was friendly and the outdoor deck was the perfect place for drinks after dinner. We'll definitely be back!
