Our family has visited this restaurant for the past four years now over the Dickens festival. It is always great food and very nice service. This year, i had a crab & lobster roll sandwich, which was fabulous, and at a decent price. It was thick and meaty with tons of seafood, along with a side of coleslaw. Our server... More

Was looking forward to a bite with out of town friends. The company was great. The waitress served my steak with mushroom cold. My friends order was just wrong. The couple that sat down the same time as us was served dinner as we were getting our check. We had appetizers, dinner and dessert. Wait staff didn't know wines. The... More

Stopped here for an early dinner after an apt; great cobb salad and good service. Not a bad selection of wines by the glass either.

Another good eatery on the Main Street through Skaneatles. Somewhat fancier food , but not expensive. Very popular locally.

Our table was waiting for us and we were immediately tended to. Our server Kim was terrific. She was patient, efficient and fun. The food was delicious and reasonably priced. We could not have asked... More

Skaneateles is known for its shops and shopping, so eating needs to be convienient. Bluewater Grill is easy to find: lakeside, in the center of the business district. My wife and I had lunch there while on a day-trip out of The Inns of Aurora. We were seated in a nice, bright room at the rear of the estabishment, overlooking... More

This place had wonderful sushi and gluten free options. We didn't have reservations but were seated immediately. The hot toddy chocolate was lovely. We will be back:)
