I haven't tried all the restaurants here, but this one looks to be the best. Kind of a bistro menu, with many wines by the glass. Service was excellent. Decor is comfortable. Good for casual to serious events.

This restaurant was so disappointing. Being located in the town of Skaneateles, we thought it would be a great choice for dinner. We were greeted by a miserable waitress. She seated us in a dark corner where we could just about see what we were eating. When our food came, it was just like microwaved food. For a starter we chose the Baked Brie. The sauce was far too sticky and the apples were too thick, as a main meal my fiancé had the shrimp and crab dish but we were sure it was frozen and artificial crab meat. I had the ravioli which was undercooked and stodgy. We didn't stay for desert as the first two courses were such a disappointment.

We had a wonderful lunch at the Blue Water Grill this past weekend while in Skaneateles. I had the lobster and crab roll which was SO good and my husband had the fish tacos which he said were excellent. Very nice atmosphere and friendly waitresses.

En route back to New York, stopped in the Blue Water Grill based on online reviews.

In the fun town of Skaneateles, right on the water.

While nearly full on a Saturday evening, was seated right away without reservations.

First impression was good: a well-made Gin Martini, nicely chilled. Pics uploaded.

Chose the Baked Brie appetizer, with tart apples and sweetened with candied nuts. Most excellent.

For the entrees, chose the Salmon and also the Scallops Asian Style. Salmon may have been slightly over-cooked. Overall, very tasty. Next time, would check out the beef dishes.

Friendly and helpful staff, many beers on tap, and of course many tables with views of Lake Skaneateles. Overall, good value.

Open year round.

Note: Now also open for breakfast.

Tip: Choose the daytime hours for view of the lake. Worth a detour off I90.

No website I can find.

Great place for a casual dinner. Food was very good, atmosphere is friendly. Right in the center of town on the lake.
