Had fish and fries and they were perfectly cooked (how do they make those fries so delicious). The coleslaw was the best tasting and freshest I have eaten in the US so far, and I have had many meals that included it. Great view. Sticky table needed a good wash.

We should have found another restaurant when we looked at the menu. Very limited. Many items were fried. No fresh fish...just deep fried. Oil was puddled in the bottom of the basket from the fried food. Has an OK view of the marina/lake. Not enough shade for eating outside. People were asking for shady seats but only a few available.

As advertised we do have a pub menu, it's certainly not fine dining with lots of seafood but we still like it. Our apologizes for the greasiness but I will say the fish fry is a local favorite. As far as the OK view I would have to disagree you can't be any closer to the lake! It can be... More

If you enjoy your dinner while watching the sunset through countless sailboats docked in a marina, then this is the place for you. Its a very simple menu but all of our food was good. It had a decent beer list. Can be romantic if you don't get a family of six next to you.

My family and I stopped here for dinner on a weeknight. The location and food are both great! The Village Marina sits right on the water at lake's edge right next to the Marina. There is ample parking including for boats out behind the restaurant. There is indoor and outdoor seating as well as a covered deck over the water.... More

The food was excellent. The service was top notched. We had burgers and all of the of the usual trimmings. The boneless chicken wings were to die for. We had the medium sauce and that had a little bite. I think the hot version would have been the way to go. The most fantastic part of the dinner was beyond... More

Delicious fried shrimp app (beer battered I believe) and the Icelandic Haddock fish and chips were delicious! The outside eating area of the restaurant has a beautiful view of Seneca Lake. Our waitress (tall younger blonde, can't remember her name) was super friendly and a great server. The inside gets quite busy and it's hard to get to the bathrooms... More

I used to love coming here for food and drinks but the last two summers I've had a pretty sub par experience. On my most recent visit, the place was busy but not slammed and we were seated outside right away. however, our table was dirty and covered in syrup and the guy seating us never cleaned it up so...

This is obviously a bar, and it is a great bar if you're young and don't mind a lot of noise. I'm not so young and I don't like a lot of noise, but our hotel concierge encouraged us to try this place for dinner. Our dinner was pretty good - Friday night fish fry; it was a lot of... More
