Travelled over from The Sagamore, and we were not disappointed. First, the setting is wonderful. The meal was great from start to finish --- duck, risotto and lamb were our entrees. They were all perfect! Chef/owner made the rounds and really made you know that he cared about serving great food. Wife/manager was also welcoming and efficient. I would recommend... More

I/We have eaten here several times. Getting a table by the railing affords a great view during your meal. The food is OK, service excellent and a little pricey. Cole slaw had an odd taste (server said it had horseradish, I prefer sweet slaw, each to his own taste). A good choice when nearby, but the food is not memorable.

The wait staff is always charming, and we even had a brief chat with the chef who stopped by our table. The porch overlooking the Hudson River... More

We got here as the sun was setting and took a table outside to watch it over the lake. The food was fantastic and quick, as was our waitress. There were quite a few bugs as... More

Excellent food and good service. Try to go on a beautiful day and ask for a table on the deck. There is a fabulous view of the river near Rockwell Falls. We had a most relaxing lunch!

We heard this was a great place for dinner and were were not disappointed. This restaurant has a warm friendly classy atmosphere with friendly service. Since it was a birthday dinner we wanted something special. While sitting inside would have been just fine, we sat on the covered deck was really nice for an evening meal. The view of the... More

Patio dining over the river with view of waterfall. This is a charming spot, food and service a delight and the overhead fans kept things cool on a hot humid day.
