Our family visited here as we always do when we attend the Dicken's Days Festival in Skaneateles. It is a wonderful restaurant, and we've never had a bad dish here. It is crowded, but only because it has such good food. I had a seafood...More

I go here often with family, the food is great and we have a wonderful time. Do not go here if you are dining alone. It is pretty apparent they value larger groups (even a group of 2) over a single diner. Seating several groups...More

We looked forward to dinner here based on Trip Advisor reviews. I wish we liked sushi, they had an impressive sushi menu. We ordered baked fish and were a bit underwhelmed. The fish was overcooked and not hot. The sides were good but we felt...More

Recommended by the place where we stayed as "the" place to go, we made reservations for 7:45pm (they were booked for earlier seatings). We had an awesome brie, candied nuts, apple appetizer! We each had a salad that was also really good!
