We could look over the lake and enjoy our meals. The clam chowder was the best. We loved the atmosphere too. The portions were just right as was the price. This is a place I would recommend.

Special thanks to our captain (Bob?), a well-seasoned sailor and someone who was outstanding at bringing the history - and even current issues - to life for us. Well worth the one-hour spent on the lake with him.

Took the one hour boat ride. The fall colors were especially good. The captain and his assistant gave us an interesting history on this area. It's big on salt production. Although there's a huge salt deposit under the lake, it's still a fresh water lake that was formed by glaciers.

The trip was a nice one except for the monotone announcer talking the entire trip about the salt refineries on the lake.

Our debut for the bruncheon cruise - just two (2) hours but it seemed much longer - was so enjoyable. We chose Captain Bill's after reading reviews and were certainly rewarded. Everything was smoothly and professionally done - even our last-minute change to the upper deck.. A nice crewgirl escorted us and placed our table linen (a very nice touch). Spotlessly clean and pleasant surroundings and the food (very good) was bountiful. The staff was effortlessly nice throughout the gorgeous vistas of Seneca Lake and even Mary Ann would look forward to the three-hour tour.
