The staff at this restaurant is EXCELLENT. We arrived after 8 pm on a Friday night and only disadvantage was very loud with lots of locals enjoying their beverages. We were greeted right away and found a place to sit. Our friendly server team arrived right away and took our drink order. There are so many fun items on the menu it was hard to decide. My husband enjoyed the homemade sausage and felt like it was the best he had in years (our primary residence is Tampa Bay area in Florida--Canandaigua is our second home)... I had the Green Front Baked Wings and was happy to find that less greasy variety of wings.. FABULOUS choice. We felt the menu was so diverse that we made it a point to return during the following week just to have the White Garlic Pizza with Chicken.... Another FABULOUS choice... We will be back in the area for Labor day and will return. This Restaurant should be rated higher than it is....it is not just a bar...food is wonderful and staff is GREAT... (Friday nite of our first visit - Manager was going around personally greeting the guests. We are in the 'over 60 age group and thought it great to be treated as one of the crowd who appeared to be the 30 something - 50 age group.... I cannot say enough....food and drink prices EXCELLENT... Loved it!

After visting Sonnenberg Gardens we were looking for a "local" restaurant that wasn't too trendy or pricey. Only minutes from Sonnenberg Gardens we found this place on a side street just off of Main St. The exterior looks more like and old time bar what with the building right up on the sidewalk and neon beer signs in the windows but once we stepped inside we were pleasantly surprised. The interior was quite up to date and well decorated. Like I said the exterior did not hint of what was inside. Dining area was on the smaller side but worked out well for our odd hour lunch.

Had the crabcake sandwich which was great. Service was speedy and prices were very reasonable. Well recommended to everyone and especially for those looking for what I would call a "local" place rather than the trendy places or the places catering to the lake crowd.

Had lunch here on a Sunday afternoon. $3 pints for all the Naked Dove beers they have on tap all day every Sunday. I had the chicken salad wrap, which was delicious. My date had the spaghetti and meatballs "Sauce on Sundays". Everything was good, we sat at the bar and the service was excellent. We will definitely return soon and often.

Very small place but no problem getting seats. Had the crab cake sandwich with coleslaw on top. It was very good. Fries were good. Love the Naked Dove beers. Had the raspberry ale, Yum. Had a group of five and everyone enjoyed their meal. Only 57 dollars for 5 meals and 2 beers.
