“Top Restuarant on Lake Chautauqua”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 8, 2013

When you're visiting this area and want a nice dinner, you can't go wrong at the Italian Fisherman. The view of the lake is great. The menu has a variety of Italian style classics with a contemporary twist. There were four of us last night and all of the dinners were very good. Cocktails were not so great. One was undrinkable at our table, and the table next to us sent two back. Service was prompt and pleasant.

We had lunch at the Italian Fisherman prior to a pops concert next door. Lunch is only available on the outside decks and on a nice summer day, there's no better place to be. The four of us managed to arrive at a time when we were seated right away...snagging one of two tables left. The servers were extremely friendly and well trained to push drinks, specials and meals. We ordered the day's drink feature which was a bloody mary. No different from the one listed on the menu. We weren't surprised to pay $10+ for the drink, given the venue..but really? It arrived in a plastic cup. The food, while expensive is very good. The Italian Nacho appetizer is fabulous..take note...ample enough to constitute lunch for four adults. One very unattractive aspect is the restroom. Cramped is an understatement, no ventilation,paper towels on the sink counter wicking up water. A steady wait line of 4-6 ladies.The report on the men's room was much the same. With the high prices they charge and the clientele they serve, they really need to improve on the facilities.

“Right on Chautauqua Lake”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2013

Located literally on Chautauqua Lake. Great views, can't beat a Bemus Point on the lake sunset. Food is always wonderful. But don't stop to eat if your on a budget. Menu is a bit on the higher end price wise! More of a tourist attraction.

“Good food, good view, high prices”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 23, 2013

The food and view were good but the prices were kind of high. They also charge for pop refills so if not careful you can walk away spending $10 on your pop.
