Great lunch with excellent service. Apple salad with a wonderful homemade Maple vinaigrette dressing. The wine was a highlight. NY Fingerlakes Hazlitt Bad Cat Red. Very flavorful and went well with the salad.

Good food and service. I would recommend a reservation went on a Sunday night and had to wait 20 minutes. I had the fish special my husband had a sandwich. Our food was good and plentiful.

We stayed in a bad hotel, and we were still refered to this restaurant. We were very happy they got this right...I had a lovely salad and my husband doesn't remember what he had but we were served very well and the food and wait staff was pretty nice. Would stop in again. The planting outside were lovely also. Clean... More

We chose this restaurant while visiting the area because there were a lot of cars in the lot- a good sign. It was very busy for lunch on a rainy Saturday. We were seated immediately; it's a big place with indoor and outdoor seating. It is not "on the lake" however! No real view. Hostess was friendly, our server was... More

Five of us ate here and all were pleased. The waitress was able to help us with questions and options and did not steer us wrong. My steak dinner was served medium rare as I requested which I find hard to have it done correctly.

This place does not have a view of the lake while dining, so there's some false advertising. Upon walking in, college-aged kids asked us if we had a reservation (early in the week when the place was pretty much empty). Because we didn't, we were not allowed to dine in the elegantly decorated (and spacious dining room, which was mostly... More

This place was quite crowded on a Sunday night and we waited about 15 minutes for a table. It's a pretty large place with nice decor. I had the veal Marsala on top of pasta which was delicious. It came with a pathetic facsimile of a salad which puzzled me, and there was no bread at all. Service was slow... More

Nolan's is a great place for a fine meal- lots of good entrees to choose from They have some local craft brews and good aged steaks. I recommend the Delmonaco with mushrooms. They seem to be very busy on the weekends so book your reservation ahead of time.. try and get some seating out of the way like in the... More

We made reservations for 6:30 and requested a booth. Upon our arrival at 6:25 we had to wait for a booth for 15 minutes. They requested we could go into the bar area and have a drink. Which normally we would not mind but when dinning with the in-laws, that was a no go and were stuck waiting on a... More
