“Our waitress made all the difference in the world”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 21, 2011

I had a lovely time at this restaurant with my, my mom, aunt, and 2 sisters. It was during wine fest weekend and they ran out of a few things. Our waitress Lily was fantastic. She let us know right away when we had to wait for something a little longer or if they were completely out. She was very humorous and kept us laughing. So besides the good food and atmosphere, we had wonderful service. I would go back again. Next time, I'll make reservations and hope to get a start out doors.

“Always great”

I frequent this restaurant often... The service is always great. When you eat here try the raspberry bongo (in house specialty) for dessert it's my favorite:)

“Outstanding”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 12, 2011

We were guests at Saturday's Drake-Rhodes wedding and found the menu very ample and very delicious!! Everything was served hot. The soup of the day was filled with clams and was excellent. The portabella mushrooms were soooo delicious! A first-time visit for us and hope to come again in the future.

The view of the lake was beautiful!

“Wonderful Family Dinner”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 12, 2011

We had a family dinner (86 guests) after our daughter's wedding, and we had a wonderful time. The food was delicious (meals ranged from steak, chicken, shrimp pasta, portabello mushroom to macaroni & cheese for the children), the servers were superb, and the view from the dining room was so beautiful.

I highly recommend this restaurant for any event you might be planning. You won't be disappointed!

“Quite good”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 3, 2011

We typically go to Seneca Harbor once each year to enjoy the view and vibes from the deck. The food has always been mediocre--not horrible, just not all that special. But this year we were pleasantly surprised with four different dishes including the shrimp trio, salmon, vodka pasta, and steak/shrimp combo. The garlic bread was particularly good and the salads were nice mixed greens. This was a noticeable improvement over past years. New cook? New attitude? We might even go back before next summer.
