“All around terrible”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 16, 2013

For a Thursday night, an empty parking lot at a restaurant in a lake town should of been reason enough not to go in but we did anyway.... The smell was either cat urine or dirty dish water but it was thick. No music playing, you could of heard a pin drop. There were maybe 3 tables of customers. We waited for the bartender/manager/waiter/cashier to take our drink order and had told him we would be having dinner as well. 30 minutes later our friend finally got his beer after taps were changed out and the multi tasking bartender returned to the bar. By then we had decided not eat there. Multi-tasker took another 30 minutes to cash us out. The only bright spot of the entire awful experience was the adorable youngster and his family enjoying their dinner behind us.

The staff was very nice. Expected more , but overall it wasn't a bad meal. The chef came out to make sure we were happy with the meal.

“Above average diner food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2013

Just south of Hammondsport on Route 54, very convenient if you are visiting Keuka Lake. They have lots of fish and seafood, but other typical diner food as well. I had a fish sandwich which had delicious real fish- not some kind of patty. Service was wonderful and very friendly.

“Very good first time visit”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2013

We had an enjoyable first time visit and will return for more.
A bit pricy but the quality of the food reflects the pricing.
It was good and the meal was enjoyable.
