Our favorite in the area. Great atmosphere, music and food make this a winning combo. OK, I have to admit they go out of their way to say hello to frequent diners but, isn't that what keeps you coming back? Great wait staff, great food, reasonable prices and Naked Dove on tap! What else do you need? The view is nice as well. The cottages are gone and Nolan's is here to stay.

acting very cordial to the couple indifferent to us as we waited and waited for mediocre dinner at best. Avoid this place unless your friends with the staff..,,

This restaurant must be on it's last legs. Arriving, the bungalows in back have been condemned and are only hidden by a chain link fence. The staff acts like they know when the wrecking ball is coming to get them like all the restaurants around them. Visited on Xmas Eve. Went into the bar, no one in sight. Then a woman popped up from behind the bar like a Jack in the Box. Our table was ready so we did not order a drink. Our drinks were ordered very specifically and were made wrong. The "bartender" came back with our new drinks. She seemed "impaired". Our server was very stern, not friendly. When we made a request, she would rudely bark to someone in the restaurant an order on what to get us. Must have humiliated the other workers. Food was so so, very 90's presentations but probably new for Canandaigua. Ordered win by glass with dinner, wrong wine came. Same dazed bartender. Somone from the kitchen in a black jacket and what looked like pajama bottoms kept coming out. If he was the Chef, he seemed uninterested in his clientele. In all, a very mediocre experience but what the heck, it was night before Christmas Eve, who felt like working? Certainly not these folks. So just keep going through the motions until the bulldozer shows up.

We went in the off-season and they were more than happy to have us. The seafood was fresh and their deep friend pickles were delicious and crispy. They also had a great beer selection and the waitress was helpful in choosing one.
