This restaurant is down the road from my mom's house. We frequently get take out on Fridays. The haddock dinner is excellent with a choice of sides and salad. Occasionally, we eat in. We visited on Friday, July 22, 2016. Our waitress was attentive and the haddock dinner was delicious as always. We will continue to go back.

We've never had a bad meal here. Everything from seafood to Italian to steak has been spot on . And you can't be the view! Prices are what you'd normally find at a restaurant without a view. You may wait a little longer on a weekend for a table but they have a nice outside bar and patio to grab... More

No handicapped toilet in Ladies Room or hand bars to get up. So sad as I won't go back now. Friends enjoyed Baked Fish and I had broiled (GF).

An Oneida lakeside institution since 1960, Borio's, on a sunny summer day is at it's best. Commanding a wide view of the water and two nearby islands, our outdoor table location only added to an enjoyable afternoon of dining. Drinks, delicate baked haddock, coconut shrimp and a variety of fresh vegetables with rice made our late lunch an event to... More

This is one of the few places overlooking the south shore of Oneida Lake, and a very popular wedding venue. The food is excellent; the service attentive; and the value outstanding! My wife enjoyed the capellini and meatballs, and I got the Border to Border sampler. Both dinners had enough for three meals for us seniors.

We went to hear a local band, Goodfellas last weekend, and we were amazed at the level of talent and musicianship. The lake and sunset are a definite plus! On Thursday nights in the summertime, we have seen Grupo Pagan, and danced the night away!! The food at Borio's offers different choices, so everyone can have something they like! Head... More

Found this in trip advisor with nice results. Great location with a nice patio view of the lake. The service was very good. The food was good as well but, the smaller portions made it just a bit pricy. Certainly lots of options and those near me seemed pleased as well.

This is a great spot by the water for just a cocktail or a full dinner. They also have a great "munchie" menu, potato skins are awesome! It's a fun place year round! During the summer it's a great place to sit outside and listen to music. All the staff are very friendly and attentive, and the owners are always... More
