Wonderful view of Skaneateles Lake and the village Gazebo on a Sunday evening. The porch was warm (almost too warm) and inviting. There was a saxophone and piano duet playing in the bar.

A great location, the service was fine, the menu rather wide, can,t all be fresh! Everything was acceptable but most food seemed to be coated in a spicy shake, which meant everything left the same taste in your mouth. Not worth a second visit.

We stopped here for the gorgeous lake view and were surprised at the quality food that was tasty and cooked just right. Service was adequate - efficient, attentive, and not intrusive. Background music made the experience even better. We would come here again.

Nice location, service was good and the food was only average. Not worth the sometimes long wait for a table.

Have only been here for a glass of wine in the past because I have always heard it was just average for the food, and I like to strive for at least a step above that. Finally decided to give it a try on a Monday for a late lunch. It WAS average, but the service was very pleasant. The... More

Went to the Blue Water for a nice dinner meal and it was great. Familiar and special menu items, good beverage choices, very nice serving staff. Well worth a return trip for dinner.

Fabulous location, right on the lake. Great menu choice, both main courses and deserts, and superb service. On a road trip and ended up in Skaneateles by accident, but so please we did!

I was in the area visiting family and my cousin suggested we meet at the Blue Water Grill. It was a Monday evening and I was surprised that she was making a reservation. She was right, the place was hopping. My friend ordered the turkey dinner and it looked fabulous. I wish I had ordered that to. However, I enjoyed... More
