Very nice view, but they advertise a fine dining experience, but they are remolding and only grab and go seemed to be available. Wines were good, unlike some places they did not offer your tasting $$ back off if you perchased wine.

Located at the western side of the Seneca lake, it offers 6 tastes of wines for 5$ which so far was the most expensive of all we visited. There was nothing special there to point out.
