Great service from C.J. This was our first time visiting and we needed the GPS to find it. It was worth looking for. The food was freshly prepared and tasted very good. Portions were fine.

Well, the view from inside the restaurant, the porch or the grass is just awesome. Overlooking Oneida Lake, this restaurant is not only a local favorite but a favorite of many of the folks who vacation in the area. In the summer, the open air porch is a wonderful place to eat - there are even a few tables on... More

Great food, atmosphere, service...never a disappointment. Quiet dining next to a bar/pub atmosphere and it works! Beer and food selection is wide but not overwhelming. Family run for years and has evolved with the times. This is a place where friends are made and meet!

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
