Nice view but very average overpriced food.

Mom likes this place because of the view. Her fish sandwich was nothing outstanding, little piece of fish and a huge roll. My "pineapple salad with fruit and macadamia nuts" was lettuce with two slices of pineapple and a couple of pieces of strawberry. For five dollars I added chicken. 15... read more

Visited Wilson boat house in August and much to my surprise it doesn't look like it did in the 80s. The food and service was great and the band was pretty good to.

We were driving along the lake and some in the family group were hungry, so this seemed a good choice for both food and waterfront views. Although their luncheon service had just ended, they graciously served our party of eight from that menu, including two very hungry children. The restaurant is light and airy with good views of the water.... More

We have been to this restaurant every summer for three years in a row and enjoy the food, the service, the bar and the entertainment. It's a fun place to visit by sailboat and the journey from across Lake Ontario is definitely worth it!

Delicious! Great atmosphere! Going to become a regular place for us! The restaurant is open and airy and doesn't feel crowded at all. Views to harbor/yacht club dock. Outside dining and bar. Music outside in summer. Oh, and the food! The pepper dip with pita is enough for four to six people. The pineapple salad was fresh and delicious. The... More

Great destination when you feel like taking a ride on your Harley or just a ride in the country. Great setting on the water with covered out door seating. Excellent service with very good food. Suggest the seafood chowder, the pot roast burger or a beef on wick. Salads very good as well. We live about one hundred miles from... More

This is a nice place to go for outdoor entertainment on the Wilson harbor. We enjoyed drinks and the band and also sat at the outdoor restaurant area for dinner. The harbor view is nice. The fish fry was excellent but my friends were not impressed with the Siracha BBQ chicken thighs (too sweet, no heat), and the side dish... More

We had an event for about 65 ppl. The manager was very easy to work with and paid close attention to our budget, schedule, and special needs. The food was fantastic, and the staff excellent - very attentive and a great help from setup to tear down, tabletops were kept clean, food table well stocked and maintained. All this in... More

Great location overlooking the Wilson boat harbor. Service was quick and efficient. Drinks and wine were in the $5.50 to 6.50 range. Fairly extensive menu. Two of us had fish fry, one had salmon and the fourth had mushroom ravioli. Food was good.
