Relaxing dinner with family by the water. Our server was very friendly and helpful. We loved the pretzel app. Portion sizes were large and beer battered French Fries were good. The Rueben was also good. Best part of the dinner is location with beautiful view of Seneca Lake and the harbour.

The atmosphere is relaxing. The food is good. The beer/wine is cold. Sitting outside and visiting with friends doesn't get much better. And in the evening you get to see a beautiful sunset. The staff are cheerful and friendly. If you want to get something along the lines of casual food, the menu has plenty to offer.

This eatery is at the southern tip of Lake Seneca right on the waterfront. There is seating outside under an awning as well as inside giving it a great sense of atmosphere. I enjoyed the beer battered white fish and the Mrs. had a huge hamburger. This place is extremely popular so it's jammed at major meal times. I ordered... More

Basic bar & grille food. Very Good and waiters were nice. Some outside tables were in the sun & I thought someone should put the umbrellas out. Some patrons did it themselves.

My husband called a week ahead of time to ensure they could handle a large party. They told they would not accept reservations but could accommodate a large party . We arrived an hour ahead of time to make sure they were set for us and they told they could not guarantee us seating. We had to change venue and... More

While we can accommodate large parties it is very difficult on days when it is pouring rain like the day you came in. Unfortunately our indoor seating is not very spacious which is why we do not take reservations and why we can't hold a table for an hour on a rainy day. As we discussed we would have been... More

So we had good service and OK food. However, literal saw a young couple seated and then completely ignored for our entire meal. Finally the young gentleman literally went back inside to ask for service. It was horrible. They did finally get to place an order. We would have left long before. So sad.

The views from the restaurant's veranda make this a romantic and lovely place for dinner or lunch. The fare is a bit ordinary, though the beer-battered items (both shrimp and french fries) were tasty. I had the fish & chips, and the fish was overcooked and soggy. They don't serve dessert, but there are several places for ice cream in... More

We wanted a family friendly place and one that offered a scenic view of the lake. This one offered both and had great food with local beer. It had a patio that we sat out on and had a wonderful view of the lake

Stopped there for snacks before going back to our campsite. We had delicious clam strips and pretzels, had a tasty adult beverage that was reasonably priced. Sat inside which was directly beside people sitting outside, felt awkward like we were intruding or at a zoo watching through a window. We went back for Lunch the next day. Was able to... More

Located in the heart of the Finger Lakes Region at the southern tip of Seneca Lake the views from our waterfront restaurant are sure not to disappoint. What better way to enjoy these breathtaking views than with a cocktail and some good food. You won't be disappointed by our juicy burgers, fabulous fish fry, and let's not forget those ice cold beverages. With our outdoor seating and view of the 150+ boats docked in our marina we welcome you to come sit back and enjoy a day at the lake. TO SEE OUR LATEST MENU PLEASE GO TO OUR WEBSITE!
