“location, location, location”
Reviewed August 25, 2013

We had lunch at the Italian Fisherman prior to a pops concert next door. Lunch is only available on the outside decks and on a nice summer day, there's no better place to be. The four of us managed to arrive at a time when we were seated right away...snagging one of two tables left. The servers were extremely friendly and well trained to push drinks, specials and meals. We ordered the day's drink feature which was a bloody mary. No different from the one listed on the menu. We weren't surprised to pay $10+ for the drink, given the venue..but really? It arrived in a plastic cup. The food, while expensive is very good. The Italian Nacho appetizer is fabulous..take note...ample enough to constitute lunch for four adults. One very unattractive aspect is the restroom. Cramped is an understatement, no ventilation,paper towels on the sink counter wicking up water. A steady wait line of 4-6 ladies.The report on the men's room was much the same. With the high prices they charge and the clientele they serve, they really need to improve on the facilities.

“Right on Chautauqua Lake”
Reviewed August 25, 2013

Located literally on Chautauqua Lake. Great views, can't beat a Bemus Point on the lake sunset. Food is always wonderful. But don't stop to eat if your on a budget. Menu is a bit on the higher end price wise! More of a tourist attraction.

“Good food, good view, high prices”
Reviewed August 23, 2013

The food and view were good but the prices were kind of high. They also charge for pop refills so if not careful you can walk away spending $10 on your pop.

“What a nice surprise”
Reviewed August 18, 2013

Stayed the weekend at Peak N Peek and just needed to venture out one evening. Following the restaurant list in a Chautauqua Guide, we happend upon the restaurant. Based on the name, it was our last choice but the only place where we could get seated without much of a wait. There was a two hour wait upstairs so we wandered around back and while there were no seats outside on the water, we were able to sit just inside the lower bar and still see the lake. Service was a little slow but once they noticed we were there, everything was just fine. My husband got the shrimp and grits and I got the stacked, grilled vegetables. Outrageous and unique! Both meals were just delicious and the presentation was gorgeous. The only bad thing is that they allow people waiting for an outside table to linger in front of the opening of the bar and it's a little distracting to have people standing in front of you while you're eating...plus, they block the little bit of a lake view that you get when sitting there. There is plent of room for them to wait in line without blocking the inside diners. The staff should better manager those waiting. After dinner we took a lovely walk along the lake, listened to music on the lake, stopped for an ice cream......just a lovely night.
