Reviewed August 18, 2012

Such an attractive building and very comfortable. My daughter is addicted to the place. We probably go once a week. The food is great, the service is great too.

“Fast food with Flair!”
Reviewed August 14, 2012

We eat at the Muar house for lunch a few times in season, and for ice cream(excellent gelato) about once a week. We always enjoy it.
Staff is friendly and service efficient. The home-made gelato is delicious, and there are so many great favors it is hard to chose. My current is a home made waffle cone with spiked orange and raspberry...or sometimes Donatello and Heath bar crunch...or grapefruit and mango...or...
Anyway, lunch is also very tasty. The grilled paninis are large and the side salads tasty and fresh.
The upstairs room and the side porch have great views of the lake. Chairs are comfortable and free WiFi always a plus.
Too bad they have to close in the fall!

“Great Ice Cream”
Reviewed August 10, 2012

A trip to Canandaigua always includes a stop here for Ice Cream. It is some of the best I have had. They have several flavors that have become a must have. The Peanut butter is out of this world, my dad's favorite is the Maple Walnut. Flavors change periodically and you never know what they have until you arrive, part of the fun! Deciding what flavor to have. You can eat in or on the deck or take it down to watefront. Great place and great ice cream.

“Good food and Great Views!”
Reviewed June 26, 2012

Muar House offers freshly made salads, sandwiches and soups. They also offer gelatos and ice cream. Prices are reasonable- a half sandwich and cup of soup is around $7. Eat in or sit outside on deck. Or get a galato and enjoy it as you stroll along the lake!
