On a gorgeous summer evening, my daughter and I had ribs and wings on the deck overlooking a beautiful part of Keuka Lake just as the sun was setting. It was a great meal with excellent service from a very friendly staff. We really enjoyed a relaxing and tasty dinner experience.

We came to the restaurant two days in a row. Let me first say the food was excellent and so was the service. Our first day we had a very nice server with an unusual name "Tabor" I hope I am spelling that right. She was a very personable young lady and very friendly as were the other staff we... More

We were boating on Keuka Lake and pulled up to the Lakeside's dock for lunch. Our first experience was so good (and the dock pretty easy for a novice to park at) that we ate there two days in a row. The consensus in my family was that the burgers are among the best we have had in a long... More

Had some service issues (young and inexperienced, older and too focused on duty vs us) but the head server was AMAZING and made it all better. She listened, understood, empathized and turned the whole evening around. Thanks Lisa. The view, food and beverage selection were very good. It's nice that there is a "party" marina area if you want that... More

Out of town friends came to visit us at our Keuka Lake cottage, and lunch was on the agenda. A relatively quick trip by boat brought us to this restaurant. After docking and being seated quickly, we ordered a craft beer and several different sandwiches and salads. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed their lunch. I had the "knuckle sandwich" which was like...

We stopped by on a Tuesday night, plenty of people dining outside on the deck, a small musical band playing outside, and boats in and out. The five of us had dinner, not a one of the meals wasn't excellent. Great burger, salmon, lobster ravioli, rack of ribs, and crab cakes.... couldn't go wrong with any of them! We're visiting... More

Took our crew of 8 here for dinner. After clearing up the confusion regarding our reservation, we were seated inside and began a terrific evening of really good food and fun drinks (gotta love "Sand in your Pants" - delish!) The calamari appetizer was soooo different and delectable - asiago and jalapeños with a tasty dipping sauce. Everyone's dinner was... More

We visited the Lakeside on a cloudy day in July. The restaurant was pretty empty so we got excellent service. Even though the weather was not totally cooperative for our visit, you could see the potential of this place with loads of seating and it looks like it could be a really fun place at night. Food was universally good... More

I've been coming to Keuka every weekend for 8 summers now. The Lakeside IS the premier restaurant on the water! Rich and his staff especially Mike the new Executive Chef have done a superb job with this summers menu! Always great food, great drinks and overly accommodating wait staff! Plus check out the live music on the lower deck!

We visited the Lakeside Restaurant and Tavern on June 22nd and were greeted immediately with a smile. We requested outdoor seating and got a great table overlooking Keuka Lake. All four of us enjoyed our meals, two had stuffed scrod and two had burgers but everything was very tasty and nothing remained on the plates when we were done. The... More
