Have been here 2 times. Underwhelmed both times.overpriced burgers. Too much bun and not enough meat. Sweet potato fries were the highlight, yet not exactly why I came there. It’s a tourist trap and overrated. The servers really could care less.

Three of us had a late lunch here, eating on a deck covered by a tented canvas roof with good Covid era spacing between the tables. The restaurant is in a marina. Don't let the unappealing initial view from the parking lot turn you off....The view once you are seated at one if the multiple outdoor seating options, or inside, is great! We ordered beef burgers (2) and the grilled Mahi burger, which i highly recommend. The glazed sweet potato fries deserve the rave reviews posted before my review. The onion rings were also excellent! There are numerous Finger Lakes wines and beers on the menu as well, although my husband opted for his usual bottled Stella Artois. Our server was terrific. We would definitely come back for a casual meal!More

We, a group of 4 adults and 2 10 year olds, went during the Labor day weekend. This is right on the Seneca lake pier. We sat outside right next tot he water. We had Buffalo wings and Onion rings as starters. The onion rings...were perfect. The boneless wings were some of the best we've had. We ordered Mahi Mahi sandwich and Cornell Grilled chicken. Loved every dish. The sandwich bread was so fresh, not to mention how great the fish and chicken were. We upgraded the sides from chips to sweet potato wedges. The service was awesome. We all decided we will come back the next time we visit the finger lakes region.More

We visited for lunch and had a wonderful lunch The service was great, the place is very nice, we sat by the lake, picturesque and peaceful. The buffalo wings with just the right amount of heat and spice, onion rings crispy and the beer battered...shrimp cooked to perfection. The sweet potato wedges were a delight. The Mahi Mahi sandwich, turkey sandwich and chicken sandwich were amazing. Overall had a very relaxing sumptuous lunch Thanks for the great service and foodMore

Was a little nervous going here based on some reviews. However we had a very nice experience. We went on a Saturday around 5:30 p.m. and sat outside. The view was great and the service and food were good. No complaints, it's pub food, and...not a great variety, but our bill wasn't outrageously expensive either which was nice. Can't speak for anyone else, but we were glad we went.More

Choices are pretty limited if you’re looking for waterfront dining. But there are better options. The view is pretty great being right on the protected marina with seats out over the water. I’d consider Maybe returning just to drink some beers and chill. But otherwise...it was pretty awful. Our poor waiter (I legit felt bad for him) was so bad. He couldn’t get anything right, seemed like he had never seen the menu before and couldnt seem to grasp a simple drink order of 2 seltzers a beer and a vodka soda. The food even for a pretty basic menu was disappointing. The “bobbers” boneless wings chunks were completely inedible. Sandwiches were better than that but below average at best. We did our best to be patient and just enjoy the surroundings. But we couldn’t get past how bad it was. I’d stick to one of the other 2-3 spots on the water that are heads and shoulders better than this dump.More

We saw this place was on the water so we thought we would try it for lunch with a view. That was the only good part. We sat outside, which was fine. But I was in the sun the whole time (honestly not a big...deal). However when I sat down on the chair, I practically burned my legs. I had to literally sit on the edge of the chair the whole time because the chair was so hot. We ordered drinks. I got the mermaid water drink, which sounded good. Well it wasn't. It was literally pineapple juice with a splash of blue. It was not good at all. We ordered an appetizer of pretzel sticks which were good but kind of greasy. I should add that we got no silverware or napkins when we sat down or when we go our appetizer. The waitress was no where to be found at that time. I had to get up and go to a nearby empty table for napkins from the napkin dispenser. So then we get our food - this is when we had to ask for silverware and napkins. I ordered their Grand Prix burger (blue cheese, grilled onions, garlic mayo) with house made chips. I asked for my burger medium. Well it was not. It was actually well done. That took away from it in itself. The burger flavor was missing something. It needed a sauce of some sort. I put a lot of the mayo on it to try and help with the flavor and fact that it was overdone. The house made chips were HORRIBLE. They were literally covered in salt. The only good thing on the plate was the pickle. I chose not to say anything to the waitress about the burger being well done mostly because she didn't come back in a reasonable amount of time for me to say something. My husband's ordered the short rib sandwich and sweet potato wedges. He said his was ok but nothing spectacular. We did agree that we were not happy with the experience and would not recommend it.More

Very nice outside dining experience for us. Our meals - well done cheeseburger and short rib sandwich were made to order and tasted fine. The cream drinks were the best my wife said she ever had. The place was clean. The service was fine. An...all-around pleasant dining experience by the water.More

We ate lunch here after our visit of Watkins Glen State Park. we walked here from the park, which was about 10-15 minutes walk. We were seated right away. We ordered the Fried Haddock with Fries which was delicious and big, kids (13 and 15)...had burgers and they liked them too. Our waitress was helpful and pleasant. There were no inside toilets but they had port-a-potties up front and according to one of our sons, they were clean. we had a table outside by the water and the view was really nice. There was a wasp flying around, but after a few swats it lost interest in us and flew away, so overall it did not subtract from our experience. We would come again.More

Terrible food. We ordered four dinners. Every single sandwich was soaked in pickle juice. We didn’t eat at all. We noticed that a girl cleaned the tables after each guest by just spraying something on and kept using the same dirty rag. We were concerned....The place has good location but it’s not clean. We also noticed others around not really eating and leaving. Our waiter was nice but she kept going to other tables with our food and drinks before coming to us, multitasking with food in your hands it’s not really ideal.More
