From the time we walked in the door, the service was excellent. The food was delicious, high quality prime rib, stuffed sole was delicious, shrimp pasta was great, sweet potatoe wedges were a great side, to top it off the table side bananas foster was a perfect treat. Top Notch restaurant.

Dear Kristen, I don't want another day to pass without thanking you and Nolan's for the extraordinary catering job you did to make my husband's surprise birthday party a wonderful memory. Your and Kim's timing when passing the various hot and cold hors d'oeuvres was flawless. The extra large shrimp cocktail appetizer was exceptional and the beautifully presented dinner buffet...

Staff were friendly, steak was cooked perfectly, quiet. The sweet potato fries were crispy on the outside and creamy on the inside.

The restaurant is close to the Lake and a perfect location for a walk on the wharf after dinner. We had the planked salmon and asiago crusted cod. Both were fresh and excellent. Our server was very knowledgeable and friendly. There's a nice wine list and some good local beers on tap.

We went here for dinner. The prime rib was excellent. We had to wait a bit for a table because it was a Saturday night but that's normal. The bar tender was a bit short with me but the rest of the staff was great. We will definitely be back here to enjoy some of the seafood.

We came here with high expectations and the place fell short of that. It is a average, middle of the road dinner place but far from being excellent. I had to send my steak back after the first cut, it was totally overcooked. Part of my meal was cold. We where placed in the 4 season glass roof room, and... More
