“Gentlemans retreat”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 14, 2013

Well, the new menu was small, it had great quality. After new management came in to fix what was very broken from the last mang. The crew and I are very excited for the new opening. I believe it will be a great saturday night hot spot before going out on the town. It will have everything you need...

“Fish tacos”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2012

This is my fourth trip to the calypso cay. I can honestly say that they are very consistent. I have tryed several items on the menu. Although the menu is small the choices are things everyone will find something they like. I was at first scetchy about fish Tacos, but I have to say they were delious. I love sitting on the deck over looking the water. This truley is a great spot. If you haven't been you really should give them a try.

“Terrible menu and ownership”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2012

This place was terrible. We had a gift card that they refused to honor and the manager, although told by a waitress that we wished to speak to him, refused to come to our table to clear up the issue. The menu was very small and limited, not the same menu that is posted online, which is why we went in the first place. We asked if they had given us the lunch menu. There were only two seafood selections, strange for a resteraunt on a lake. The food itself was very average to poor in quality. They don't even serve french fries, they instead had potato chips. My family was dissipointed and will certainly nver return to Calypso Cay, waste of time and money!

“Calypso Cay--not the place to be in Brewerton”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed July 26, 2012

We live 2 hours away and have been to Calypso Cay several times over the past few years when it had a great menu and great service. This last visit was a disappointment, to put it politely. The salad bar was gone. The menu was extremely limited-not the same menu from last year. We went on a Sunday for lunch. The host promptly seated us with menus. There were only 3 tables of guests in the restaurant. After 15 minutes of waiting, no server came, not even with water, and we walked out. Two other restaurants nearby were very crowded so apparently the locals know where to go for a good meal and good service and that's not Calypso Cay.
