They serve a Cowboy Steak that is VERY good! Steak comes topped with button mushrooms and gorgonzola cheese. I have have this type of steaks at other restaurants but Nolan's is far better. Great staff and other dishes are very good too.

One of the better and consistently good restaurants in Canandaigua, NY. Within walking distance to the lakefront park and piers.

Went there for anniversary dinner. Food very good, service a little slow but not bad. But not good for a night out with someone special. Noisier than a sports bar during playoffs. Not likely to return anytime soon.

Our hosts at the Chalet recommended trying here for dining if we wanted good food and a casual but upscale atmosphere. We loved the mixture of low-key feeling with quality food. Nothing fancy, just delicious. We'll be back.

The soup was semi cold and the sandwich (which was a "melt") was cold. First unpleasant experience I have ever had there. I go there quite often. Service and personnel are always at their best though!

Very busy, reservations honored. Service was ok and friendly. The bread and the plates for our appetizer were a little slow in coming out. The calamari was good, could have been a little crisper. The home made salad dressings were great! I tried the honey Dijon. The pork chop was excellent, with onion rings and sweet potato wedges. The steak,... More
