Borio's restaurant is average in my opinion. The food is good, however they are over priced. The location is best part of your experience. It is located on Oneida lake. the views are spectacular, especially the sunsets.

This well established venture on oneida lake never disappoints for summertime. Sitting on the lake shore makes the views and sunset spectacular. There's outdoor bands at times and an excellent brunch on Sunday. The menu and dinners are hit and miss. It's not 5 star dining but the overall experience is grand

We went there on a warm Sunday evening. We had to wait an hour for a table outside but that's ok. We grabbed a couple of drinks and walked down by the lake. We sat by the lake and enjoyed the scenery. When our table was ready we enjoyed a great meal while watching the sunset. I had fried perch... More

The setting is stunning, plenty of outdoor seating. All of the staff is wonderful, courteous and prompt. They do NOT take reservations so waiting can be 45 minutes plus, but you can grab a drink and listen to live music overlooking the lake while you wait.. Salad bar was very nice. After all the reviews I was expecting great food,... More

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
