“Do Not Drive By”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 22, 2013

Each time we drive to this area we stop here for a meal, usually dinner however today we tried lunch. As usual service very friendly and knowledgeable food fantastic. My friend had one of the specials haddock in tempura batter with lovely fresh local sides. I had a cup of the seafood chowder amazing! Then the falafel salad no surprises really good. Really looking forward to our next visit. The chef and team really are amazing.

“Fresh, sourced food... amazing drink menu, funky fun ambiance”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 19, 2013 via mobile

Suggested by our hotel staff - well worthwhile! Situated on the east side of Lake Seneca, this warm and eclectic spot offers inside and outside dining, a menu citing the sources of their ingredients and a fascinating drink menu. We both had appetizers stunning enough to photograph - my caprese salad sparkled with the addition of peaches and edible flowers to the standard, fresh fare. My husband had a roasted head of elephant garlic, to be spread like butter -- along with soft chèvre on crusty bread. By far the best food we had in the area

Great food...Great atmosphere! Exercise the option to buy the kitchen a beer! Maybe you will be lucky enough to be there for one of the IPA tastings!

“Wanted to try this place for awhile.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 14, 2013

Usually here on holiday weekend, when this place requires reservations or long waits.
Roasted garlic appetizer was superb.
Pulled pork was good, a bit on the sweet side.
Vegetarian tikki Marsala was amazing.
Too full for dessert!

“Good food, but pricey”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 4, 2013

The food was good, but the menu was fairly limited. Nothing jumped out at me, so I ordered 2 appetizers. It felt overly pricey for the area. A nice place for a fancier dinner out, but I expected to love it more.
