“Great View & Good Food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 18, 2014

A great place to eat while enjoying a beautiful view of south Canandaigua lake. Thanks to outdoor heaters and clear side camopies on the covered patio, we were able to sit outside comfortably on a rtaher cool evening. Although the menu was somewhat limited, the food was very good.

“Great Food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 16, 2014

This venue has superb food, great service and amazing lakeside views. We were just very unlucky that when we had dinner, the main restaurant was closed. ( It looked like maybe they were preparing for a wedding event on the next day). In consequence, as it was too cold to eat outside, we had dinner in the bar area. Sadly, our evening was completely ruined by a big party of extremely loud Canadian golfers. They were raising the roof having their fun, with no consideration for the other patrons in the restaurant bar. I guess the management must appreciate the yearly visit of these bears, personally, I was a little disappointed that the management didn't ask the rowdy crew to tone down the language and the noise level a little. Unfortunately these selfish old guys ruined our anniversary dinner date.

“Fine Dining”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 28, 2014

Dinner at the Bristol Harbour Lodge was delicious. We enjoyed the large bowl of lobster bisque - creamy and tasty. Our dinner were well prepared and presented beautifully. Our server was very friendly and knowledgeable. The only drawback of the whole evening was the limited selection of local wines on the menu. The view from the hill of the surrounding area and the lake is spectacular! We would highly recommend the restaurant. We will return the next time we visit the area.

“Exactly what we expected! Delicious!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 27, 2013

When we arrived, we could tell the food would be pricey but we'd heard it was well worth it, and we were not disappointed! The atmosphere is relaxed and the view is incredible. We ordered a crab cake for our starter and it was amazing. Then for the main courses, my husband got a strip steak dish with this great hash and kale, and I got the pork chop with grilled asparagus and polenta that tasted like it fell from heaven. All in all, a great visit! The prices were in the $20's and $30's for entrees, but in my opinion, you get what you pay for and this was worth it!
