The place has plenty of seating, but we decided to sit outside. It was worth the wait. Plenty to choose from on the vast menu. Had the salmon special and licked my plate clean.

The locals love this place and now we know why. The restaurant has beautiful lake views and a menu with many options, especially abundant in fresh seafood choices. They don't take reservations, however on a Thursday night at 6:45 PM we were able to be seated on the patio immediately. Salads and entrees were very good. I had the tilapia... More

Dock your boat and enjoy the outside terrace. For some reason you cannot order from their main menu dockside. Limited bar menu on the terrace. Nothing to write home about, but pleasant atmosphere. Drinks are tasty. Service abysmal.

The Lakeside Restaurant & Tavern is a great place to have dinner on a warm summer evening. Outdoor seating with a great view of Keuka Lake adds to a great atmosphere. Everything from burgers to complete dinners. The staff is great, always checking back to make sure all is right. Will return again!

Ate lunch here with a friend. We sat outside and enjoyed a relaxing meal with a wonderful view. I had the pastrami sandwich and she had the chicken wrap. Both very good. It is a little expensive (lunch for 2 about $30) but the view makes it worth it. Service was very good also.

A great view , lots of outdoor seating overlooking the lake. We had a seafood appetizer which was very good included oysters, crab legs, lobster claws and sauce. Very fresh. We all had different dinners. I had the Mahi Mahi which came with rice and veggies. It was a good size and I took some home. They offer hamburgers to... More

Super menu selections. I had the rib special, we shared the excellent meat, grilled veggies and cheeze tray. Quick service in spite of a busy night.

Ate outdoors on one of the patios, beautiful view of the Keuka Lake Bluff -food was excellent , a bit of a wait but who cares when the warm summer evening is perfect. Ample boat docking compared with other lakeside restaurants. Live music on a Wednesday evening. Pleasant wait staff.

Wow, great food, great view. We went on a beautiful sunny day and sat outside with a view of the lake. My husband had calamari for the first time and I'm glad it was here. It was done perfect. Tender, flaky. He's hooked. The meal was all fantastic. The drinks were a tad on the small side but very good.... More

Hubby and I went here with our friends touring us while visiting for a surprise birthday weekend. The four of us stopped for drinks and some food. The very young waiter who I think was Cole greeted our table very kindly with a smile. That was very nice of such a young person. Beautiful day with a beautuful view. Cocktails... More
