Ate there several times this year and in the past, and the food is fine, but at dinner time, services is often a bit slow, but well worth the wait. You won't be sorry...and a wonderful view of the lake at your dining side.

Nothing about this place is recommended regarding the food- two of our group ordered mussels of two varieties, both were old and musty and should never had been served. Our fish fry (ie fish and chips) was not fresh but was at least edible. Sweet helpful young waitresses helped but could not overcome the lower than average food ratings.

We look forward to returning to this restaurant. It is right on the lake, but the porch is on the side of the restaurant. The restaurant was very busy and they only take reservations for 5+, so the four of us were fortunate to get a window table inside, overlooking the lake. Our waitress was new to the restaurant, but... More

The food was just OK for the price which was on the expensive side. The wine, which was nothing special, costs $9 a glass. However, the outside seating with a great view of the lake compensates for everything else.

A very good fish restaurant. Particularly nice to sit outside on a cool evening and watch the sunset over Lake Champlain. Service excellent. Generous portions. Bit pricy but worth it.

We all ordered the steamed lobster which came with drawn butter, baked potato and a salad. Delicious. Only complaint, the lobster shell needed to be cracked with a hammer before serving from the kitchen. I would go back but take my own hammer or ask the kitchen to be sure to pre crack it before serving. The sunset reflected over... More

Dinner on Friday night at 7pm. Waited 15 minutes and It was so worth it! Maddie our sever was sweet, professional, and awesome at the restaurant's busiest time. Food was so delicious. My husband ordered the Navigator plate and loved it. Our 7 year old had a chicken strip meal and ordered chocolate cake with fudge for dessert and loved... More

I took my sister here for her birthday dinner. We had a perfect meal. I had the Rack of Lamb and she had the Watermark Fish Fry. Our table had a great view of the lake with an American flag flapping in the breeze and a dock with lake birds resting on it. The staff was delightful. We have been... More

We had a great dinner here on our last evening by Lake Chautauqua. We loved the outdoor seating and friendly wait staff. The crab soup is a must! Also delicious - seafood tower salad.
