This outstanding restaurant has become noticeably poorer in the last couple years. The last 4 or 5 times we have been there have been a disappointment. Nolan's is running the food service for Canandaigua Country Club, and they have a large tent there where they cater parties. That seems to be the focus of their interest, no longer the restaurant....

I can't understand why it only had 4 out of 5 stars. Our visit was perfect. Nice greeting when arriving followed by perfect service from a highly attentive and professional server. She explained the specials but we opted for the prime rib and steak. Both were outstanding. Right up there with a Ruths Chris or a Mortons. My wife always... More

We were staying nearby and one of the locals told us about Nolan's. I had the Vodka Shrimp & Scallops. The scallops were the freshest I have ever had, and the sauce was just the right balance of tomato & cream, with Absolut vodka. My honey had the broiled pork chop, which a perfect tenderness. The house dressing was a... More

Recommended by our B&B host, this restaurant seems very popular with the locals. Casual steak house with pretty good seafood (that is what we ordered). We made a reservation but still had to wait a bit for the table. Service was good, prices; moderate.

The seafood chowder was excellent, buttery and thick with chunks of seafood, corn, and potato. The French onion soup was not the best I've ever had, but it was still tasty. The fish on the fish and chips platter was very mild and tender. The fries weren't anything special, and the slaw was disappointingly bland. Lunch for 2 with hot... More
