I've only been here for lunch, but the burgers are spectacular and the view is great because it's right on the water and right beside the beach... Also very popular during the Christmas Season/Dickens Christmas festival on the weekend... a great place to warm up and have a bite to eat on a cold winter day!

We haven't been to the Blue Water in a while as my wife didn't enjoy her last meal there. This past Sunday we arrived in town and wanted a quick appetizer. Glad we did. We split the lobster salad app as well as jalapeños wrapped in bacon. They were both outstanding. The lobster appetizer (forget the actual name) was fresh... More

We were visiting and stopped in for a drink. We found the ambiance very comfortable and the staff very friendly. It was very busy for a Saturday afternoon and the menu looked very nice. We'll definitely be back!

I had a special with brussel spouts and sweet potatoes sounded so good, had never eaten here before. It was very bitter supposed to be carmelized. I tried to eat it even though I was not really enjoying it but the more I ate the less I liked it. The server was plesant offered to get me something else so... More

We (Jack and Suada) had lunch there on February 11th. We had no trouble getting a seat in a comfortable area looking out over the lake. I had a really great meal - it had marinated tuna, slightly grilled calamari, avocado, greens, wonderful dressing, and a lot of other delectable ingredients I cannot remember. It was only about $13 and... More

I liked the selection of food. It is a beautiful spot. The view of Skaneateles Lake can be breath taking. Reasonably priced. Family friendly.

Went to the Grill this past Saturday for lunch. We were very impressed. Nice and warm, quick nice service. Excellent food, had some chowder, then clams in white wine. Excellent. Great drinks too. The bartender knows his stuff. Bloddy Mary's, Pear Martinis, perfect. Will definitely go back again. Many things on the menu looked spectacular.

We were on a walking tour of Skaneateles and decided to eat lunch here. The service was prompt and friendly. The seafood was plentiful, fresh and well prepared. There is a nice lake view. We had a very good and relaxing break from our walk.

After almost 17 years of marriage-it's nice to go back to the place we had our 1st date at. We even got the booth we were in. Fond remeberances came flying back as we enjoyed some fine wine and delightful fresh fried Calamari. Both our Entrees were perfect-but I can highly recommend the Sea Bass, which I had, cooked to...

The Blue Goose extension has good food and beer selection. What is lacking is service. A young staff seem more interested in hanging behind the bar and socializing than paying attention to diners needs. Sat and waited 10 minutes for someone to come to our table. During our meal, no one bothered to check to see if we'd like a... More
