Perfect venue

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... read 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

The view is awesome, the waterfront deck is a great place to soak up the lake beauty....when/if it's open, the food...well, hit and miss. The calamari was extremely over battered and was covered in fried jalapeños (banana peppers is what the menu states it should have been) and also ordered a sandwich that the menu said had banana peppers on...

This place has the best of everything. Located right on the lake with plenty of dock spaces for boat parking, it has a great beach side bar with a grille and limited menu, or you go up to the main restaurant and bar for a sumptuous meal with all the trimmings. Food is great, live music is always great -... More

The outside of the restaurant was under construction so we almost didn't go in because it looked a mess but we decided to at least look and boy were we glad we did. There is plenty of outside deck seating overlooking Keuka Lake and it is beautiful. There is also plenty of inside seating as well. Five of us had... More

This place has evolved into a great place for dinner or just a light meal and drink on the lower deck. The view of the lake is fantastic and the wait staff is always very helpful. Love sitting at the lower deck listening to live music and enjoying probably the best chicken wings around. By boat or car you can't... More

Beautiful Friday evening having dinner with another couple. Our waiter was attentive and courteous and young! We enjoyed our cocktails at our table overlooking the lake and our waiter did not continually ask if we were ready to order. 3 out 4 had the fish fry which they said was delicious with the fish being flaky and hot. I had... More

Stopped here for lunch while boating on the lake. The burgers are amazing - homemade, fresh, mouthwatering! Recommend the crab claws for appetizer. The various salads are oh so good too!

An amazing view of the bluff. Go for a cocktail skip the meal! My Caesar salad was warm, and soggy.. My chicken wings were rubber with lots of hot sauce on them ( I ordered mild). Very disappointing. The specials the family had too were awful.
