Great views, good food

We have been blessed with a couple of very warm days here in upstate NY. What a better place then to have lunch by Oneida Lake?

We arrived without reservations and had 10 in our party. The staff was great and got us a table in a short amount of time. Accommodating with separate checks and all the requests. Food was great and we had a big variety.

We came to this restaurant from our boat and had our 2 very well behaved labs with us. The staff was great about letting them be with us in the outdoor seating area. Even brought them water. We only ordered bar food so not sure about how the actual meals are but we were pleased!
