My wife and I stopped in later one night for dinner. My wife had the fish and chips and I had the scallops. My wife's was a huge piece of fish in a tasty beer bater, well worth it. I had the scallops, which were all good, but felt they quantity of rice overpowered the scallops. Would recommend this location!

I have always wanted to come here in the summer and just have not been able to so I have to enjoy the early fall. I have to say the views from the restaurant and the lower decks is amazing. The food is good and the service was great. The owner is usually on site and is very nice and... More

We ate here on a Sunday evening and the views were just incredible across Keuka Lake. But the food was just as good as the view. Terrific selection of seafood and not over-priced. Highly recommend.

Dining on the deck at the Waterfront on a sunny day is guaranteed to be a highlight in your trip to the Finger Lakes. A well thought out menu with a great selection of local beer and wines.

Visited for dinner on Our first Finger Lake" visit. Close to our home base. Very pleasant atmosphere and super pleasant waitress. Several selections on both the beer list and menu were not available, however. Drinks and food were very slow to arrive. Ordered the fish tacos which were a nice portion but lacked a lot of taste. My husband's Cuban... More

There are two ways you can get into this place. through the front doors for inside dining or walk around to the deck. You can't walk from one to the other from inside. We went for the deck. A good size deck with TVs around the outside bar area but the buffalo bills were playing and the place was swamped.... More

We had lunch here on Sunday with friends. Great burgers and other entrees. They have daily specials as well. The portions are big. Really nice view of the lake. Indoor and outdoor seating. They have a dinning room and a sports bar with TV's to watch the games. I believe they close for the winter at the end of October.

My wife and I visited on Sunday after church and enjoyed Sunday dinner. She had the baked haddock and I enjoyed the pan seared scallops. The food was very good and it was great that during the off season they serve dinner all afternoon not just lunch until 4 PM on Sundays. The service was excellent and all of the... More

The food is absolutely delicious from casual fare to the best seafood - crab leg night!! The owners are the best - very friendly and gracious hosts. The atmosphere is my favorite - dine right on the lake with live music. It is most definitely worth the trip. The surrounding area is one of the most beautiful places I have... More
