Great View

Sat on the deck for a late lunch. The view was fantastic. Sandwiches were tasty and hefty portions. Wait staff was nice.

Love the Waterfront- love being able to drive up in boat, dock, eat lunch and then go. Prices are good, food was great. Can't wait to go back next summer!

After sightseeing all day long, I was hungry; Shocking to receive a 2 x 2 inch chunk of salmon on some field greens, a few crumbles of feta, 3 cherry tomatoes and two mini peppers (cut in half, grilled) for a large amount of money. If the salad would have been priced at 12.99, I would not have asked for... More

...to which we graciously responded by dropping the price to $12...to which you responded by saying it was great and you were actually full. Ahhhh the one-sidedness and subjectivity of online reviews. More

If you love crab legs this is the place to go ~ and soon. They close for the season the end of October. On Wednesday evenings they offer all you can eat crab legs for $39.95 or a pound and a half plate for $29.95, each with a side (but who cares when you are eating crab!) The service is... More

Where do I begin!? I am from the Washington DC area and spent my summers growing up on Keuka Lake. My childhood dream was to have a Keuka wedding (which I literally planned/threw together in 5 months!) I called around to several places around the lake to talk rehearsal dinner locations and after I spoke with Be Sable at the... More

I had a client event for about 40 people on the deck. It went flawlessly, and everyone enjoyed themselves. The food was great, and the service was better.

We were here for an outdoor concert. The bartenders and our waitress were busy but friendly. The food was good, the drinks were good, the seats were good, the show was excellent (Marty Sexton). No complaints!

Went for lunch and the staff was very friendly. The chef even came out to greet us since my husband wanted the HOTTEST sauce for his wings which were one of the best wings I have ever tasted. My fish taco was also excellent, prepared with one fried piece and one grilled piece of fish. The only problem was they... More

We did not expect great food at the Waterfront, so we were not disappointed by our below-average fare. A glass of cold wine and the stunning views of the sun-dappled Lake Keuka made up for the mediocre meal.

This restaurant is located just below the middle of the Y of Keuka Lake so you can see where the lake splits to go in the two upward directions of this unusually shaped Finger Lake. This place is very popular on sunny days in the summer. We got there just in time to get a great table on the large... More
