Quality dinner with interesting menu

Beautiful views and very well kept premises; interesting menu. Three adult dinners were delicious but pricey for upstate NY; child's burger ordered medium was badly overcooked. Huge portions which is a bit of a shame when travelling and leftovers aren't easy to manage. Attentive service but quite... read more

We went here for dinner. The service was average. The food was not so great. I ordered chicken Alfredo pizza and it was like soup on a pizza crust, not enjoyable and I didn't end up eating it. They did take it off the check which was nice. Below average. Probably wouldn't go there again honestly.

Five of us sat on a gorgeous Adirondack day overlooking the lake and enjoyed all our meals. One of us said she had the best meatball sandwich she had ever had (and she knows Italian food!). The veggie quesadilla and salmon panini were fine. Service was helpful and gracious, except that information on the wine was inaccurate. I've been there... More

We went for lunch yesterday and our food was delicious. I got the bbq chicken flat bread pizza, a friend got the buffalo chicken pizza and the other had burgers. Everything was delicious. Our waiter was great. No complaints at all. If we're ever in the area again we'll definitely stop.

In a word: vile. I left this restaurant hoping I would throw up my food as my stomach is now sounding like a washing machine. Everything was terrible - we had to wait for over an hour for the food to arrive even though we asked for the kids meals to come sooner, our order was wrong three times over... More

Went out to lunch on Friday 8/7, with a friend. Have been here a couple times previously, service was slow but the food was decent. On this day however I couldn't say how the food was...it never arrived! We ordered our beverages which were delivered and then ordered lunch. After waiting about forty minutes, we tracked down our waiter and... More

My wife and I ate there last night. Authenticity is phony, as evidenced by a menu item "Buttanesca," which I assume is their attempt to spell "Puttanesca" and which we avoided. This pasta dish is supposed to be rather pungent and based on garlic, capers, olives, anchovies, and crushed red pepper. However, the menu describes their "Buttanesca" as totally different,... More

We had stuffed shells and eggplant parm. We both liked our dishes. Service was good. Prices reasonable.

We decided to eat here based on the crowds that are usually outside when we drive by. That should have been out first clue when we got there it was almost empty at dinner time!! The drink I had tasted like dish soap. The meal was basic- grilled shrimp tiny baked potato and 3 asparagus spears!! for 20 bucks!! The... More
