Four of us ate this early evening and had an excellent meal and service. Our server Mackenzie was very knowledgeable of the menu items and provided prompt courteous service. Appetizers were generous and excellent!! All three adults had scallops and they too were excellent. The lone youth had paste that was generous and very good. The live music was good and at very enjoyable level.

We had lunch here. The view of the lake is beautiful! The service was great, the food was also very good. They have outside picnic tables for customers who are traveling with their pets.

I am a local, stopped in to check it out on my way back from Ithaca. They had a really nice menu. It’s simple and food you recognize, but at same time using fresh products from the Finger Lakes Region.

The President Jon and Executive Chef Sean are very professional and always a pleasure to see!

I selected the Salmon as my main course and paired with their best Chardonnay. The meal and wine were perfect for a quick bite and drink.

I will make it a point to return very soon and recommend to all family and friends!
