Great scenic spot. We were sat right beside the lakeside window. The place is decorated with old sails and plenty of warmth on a chilly night. By far, our favorite place so far on this trip. Server was kind and didn't rush us at all. Wine selection was nice, they had bottled cider on hand .. and a full bar.... More

The location at the very south end of Seneca Lake is outstanding and inside they have a nautical theme to the decor. Very nice and in keeping with the location. We've been here for lunch and drinks in the summer, and recently for dinner in the fall. It's a great spot with a great view. The food was fine, but... More

My wife and I went here for our 1yr anniversary and it was fantastic. I'll start with a few small things that I wasn't crazy about, but weren't a big deal. I would have liked a sear on my shrimp, which there was not and the potatoes were to my surprise not homemade. They were some doctored up instant potatoes.... More

Service was excellent! My dinner was perfect - a wrap. Delicious. My husband had shrimp to die for. Quiet evening out!

My wife and I have had lunch here before. This time we stopped for coffee and to split a dessert. No issues with not ordering a full meal and the waiter made sure we were served quickly and that we were happy.

Located right at the Village Marina and Captain Bill's berthing, the Seneca Harbor station has some really good food, a great bar and wonderful service. It is too bad it is not open all year round. Seating is available either inside or outside.

We had a large group of 14 and were promptly seated upon arrival. The wait staff was wonderful. The food was not the best but I ordered the Ribeye steak and it was excellent. The seafood platters were not very appetizing to look at and the fried food was over cooked.

Nice view, on the water. But the food was so-so, pricey for what it was. Wild rice was rice with some veg in it. Salmon was just ok. Food not worth the prices they charge.

One of my worst restaurant experiences. We waited 104 minutes to be served. When complaining after 90 minutes of waiting the manager was not sympathetic. Her response was "You can leave if you want to." During the 90 minutes we only saw our waiter once when he brought water and again when he brought bread.

Only had drinks which were mediocre at best. Nothing difficult to make, Manhattan and a Martini. Menu has some interesting items but prices were pretty expensive. There was a 45 min wait for a table but there were several open tables??? No one in Watkins Glenn suggested it, actually no one we spoke to had ever eaten there.
