Crab cake platter was good, but lobster bisque was not as it was thin and salty. Lots of flies indoors distracted us from the view and meal.

Stopped in for a late dinner on a Saturday night. Seemed pretty busy. Has large windows for lake views along with an outdoor seating area. Our server appeared to be new and it showed. I won't hold that against the establishment, however. Food was decent and fairly priced. Beer selection included all the Ommegang favorites. Dining area was somewhat loud,... More

Stopped for lunch on a last minute trip to Cooperstown. Beautiful day on the lake. Nice location right at the bottom of the lake, next to a marina. Eggplant bites with ricotta and tomatoes was a great appetizer. Something for everyone on the lunch menu: soups, salads, burgers, wraps,entrees. Nice selection of local beers.

Had a late lunch here after the Baseball Hall of Fame....the service was good and the food was even better! The restaurant has indoor seating with windows and and outdoor deck that you see the lake. We sat outside and enjoyed the view. The deck overlooks the harbor where the boat tours go out of...unfortunately the boat was closed that... More

I would have liked to have given this restaurant a 3 1/2 rating, but they don't offer that. The food is actually tasty, but if's just not an inspired menu. Pastas, crab cakes, burgers...they're excellent when eaten overlooking Lake Otsego though. That's the real reason to go. But if you are more in the mood for locally sourced and creative... More

Stopped in for some drinks before during hall of fame weekend. IT was nice because it was a bit further from Main st. so it was a nice place to avoid all the crowds. Has plenty of indoor and outdoor seating. Even when sitting inside, there is a nice view of the lake. The bar is small, and not too... More

We took a ride on the Glimmerglass boat and decided to have lunch at the Lake Front Restaurant. We got right in and didn't have to wait. The view is very relaxing. The menu had a very nice selection and it wasn't too pricy. Our waitress was lovely and even gave us suggestions on other places to visit in town.... More

We stopped for lunch on a very hot Saturday, so we opted to eat inside. We were warmly welcomed and seated by the window with a very nice lake view. Outdoor seating is available, also with a lake view. Brenda, our server, couldn't have been nicer and the food was outstanding! My husband had the generous chicken quesadilla special while... More

Food was very good and service was excellent. We ate outside on the patio and the only problem we ran into was the flies. However outside seating was better for us because although the inside was very nicely decorates and clean, it was also very loud and noisy. This location does have a bar.

Thank Sally G
