Great location, overlooking the water, very pretty and lots of windows. Upon entering restaurant no one asked us about seating, no signage about seating. After a few minutes someone finally asked us if we would like a table, um, yup, that is what we are there for, LOL. Nice table in back room, but very warm, directly at window which... More

The restaurant décor could use some work but the food and service were excellent. Prices were on the higher side but reasonable.

We loved this restaurant so much that we had dinner here twice. The service was excellent and the prices very reasonable. The staff is very friendly and efficient. We had the salmon which was done to perfection. I also had the baby back ribs which were good for a non ribs place. My wife had the scallop salad which was... More

We came in at about 1030am, and were asked whether or not we wanted breakfast. Some random guy yelled at us that if we wanted to order breakfast we needed to order immediately! So I said we would have lunch, waitress took forever. Food was meh. Good in theory, but not very well executed. My mom ordered a seafood stew... More

What a great place. We had the New England Clam Chowder for starters. It was full of clams and so good! We had the lobster and crab salad sandwich. It was excellent, full of crab and lobster meat! The location is awesome, right on the lake.

We were seated right away, and our experienced waitress was friendly and attentive. Brie and apple appetizer was a delightful starter then we feasted on a perfectly cooked bacon cheeseburger and a smoked turkey baguette. No room for dessert! BWG has a nice, varied menu and it's nice to be able to select whatever side appeals most. Choice is good!

Don't miss the Blue Water Grill while visiting Skaneateles. At a friend's recommendation we stopped for lunch while visiting Skaneateles. My wife had the Autumn bisque soap and I had New England Clam chowder, both were excellent. We shared a Chicken wrapped sandwich special which was a perfect accompaniment to the soups. While lunch time can be very busy, it... More

Microwave food, ridiculously large portions, menu with 1000 random items, service ok. Tourist trap. $40/person. Nice way to ruin a nice little lake town...

Small place yet cozy:) Great food, great service. We sat in the lovely back room. I had a pulled pork sandwich with fabulous mashed potatoes! Sister had a salmon dish that she raved about. Also had a ahi salad that was perfectly balanced and dressed. Overall a good value and great food!
