Good. Not great.

First let me say there are not many choices when you are looking for finer dining at keuka lake. Looking at everyone's menus we were somewhat limited on where to go. We opted to sit indoors since they had table clothes and a really nice setup. We were placed by the window so we had a very nice... read more

This restaurant has a good number and variety of boat slips. I went there with a friend this summer by boat. The food was very good as was the service. It is a popular place in the summer and sometimes the wait for a table can be long so I suggest calling for a reservation.

it's all about the view of the lake as you dine at Lakeside. The food and service were ok but the experience of being right on the water was fabulous. Low expectations and you'll have a good time.

My wife and I took a chance on Friday night and went without making reservations. It worked out OK and we were seated inside, that is not on their deck overlooking the Lake Keuka. If we had made reservations we may have gotten on the deck. Anyway our server greeted us, we ordered a local beer which was good. After... More

It was a very busy night when we arrived, at 7pm. We were able to be seated right away (there were only two of us) inside. Our server appeared very busy with many large groups and we were fine to wait a little. We ordered some beer and an appetizer. We were also asked if we would like bread, but... More

We were seated in an air-conditioned dining room right by a window with a commanding view of the Lake and the boat docks--beautiful. The menu was simple with only a few entrees, but the food was well prepared and served well without ceremony. The wine list was equally brief,surprising in the heart of the Finger Lakes wine country. But for... More

The Lakeside is located at water's edge on the west shore several miles north of Hammondsport. It offers inside and outside seating on its mutilevel deck, often with live entertainment. We have been here for dinner twice and would say the food is average or slightly above, and a little pricey compared to some other local restaurants. Service was fine.

The view is absolutely amazing of Keuka lake. Our waitress was very friendly. The food would have been better if it had arrived as described on the menu. We asked the waitress why it was different and she said they ran out of stuff, so instead of alerting us to that detail, they just substituted items. It worked out OK,... More

My wife and I had dinner here and we were not disappointed. The outside seating gave us a fantastic view of the lake, and the food was excellent.

We ate here two nights in a row when visiting Keuka Lake in August. We were recommended to the restaurant by the owners of our B&B and were very happy with our dinners both evenings. On Wednesday night we enjoyed a mid week band while dining outside. Service was friendly, but leisurely, and the view of the lake was so... More
