“I liked this place”
Reviewed July 29, 2013

Good chopped salad and pizza. We sat at the bar as it was really hopping and we didn't want to wait for a table. One of the better restaruants in the area.

“Definitely not worth the price!”
Reviewed July 2, 2013

Our experience at Halsey's was the only bad point on a wonderful trip to Seneca Lake. The food was not good at all, and we are NOT fussy people. The salmon was completely burnt at the bottom. Black midway through, and had no salmon taste, just the taste of something thrown directly on a fire and left there about 15 minutes too long. The pizza was also not very good. We had the veggie pizza and it had a cloying, sweet taste to it. Nothing special about the crust, either. Just blah. Even the bread was terrible. We had a flatbread type of onion bread that was not even cooked. The dough was raw!
The meal was also very expensive. We don't mind spending a good amount on a nice meal, but to have an awful meal, and to have to pay 100 dollars for 2 dinners and one drink each was pricey. We were very sorry we ate here.
That being said, it is a pretty atmosphere, but certainly not pretty enough to warrant the high prices of below mediocre food. We wished we had gone elsewhere, when there are so many better choices on Seneca Lake. Oh well!

“Great food, and atmosphere”
Reviewed June 30, 2013

Awesome food, amazing wine, good service! This was one the best restaurants in town, and especially within walking distance from the B&B we stayed in. The building architecture is stunning, and it matches the quality of dining.

“Pleasant surprise”
Reviewed June 26, 2013

When we walked in there were flatbreads being served. Initially thought it was going to be too casual, we were surprised! Food was excellent and service was great. Only regret was didn't try the flat bread, it looked great and certainly will next time.

“great bartender, food not worth the price.”
Reviewed June 24, 2013

Recently went to Halsey's, Sat at the Bar. Bartender was great and so were the drinks but a little pricey. Ordered an appetizer and a brick oven pizza, neither was good or had much flavor. Actually seemed over cooked bordering on burnt. might try them again, just because the Bartender was great.
