The food and service are among the best I have ever had. The specials are always very interesting. Our server Steve was awesome. Knew the dishes, preparations, and made it happen. Can't say enough positive.
This was my first visit and I was impressed! From the moment you walk in, the Christmas decor sets the tone for a fantastic experience. Top notch service, wonderful menu and great wine. The only obvious area of improvement is to work on the wine...supply. They only had 1 bottle of the first red we tried, and they were out of other ones. Overall, one of the best meals you will find.More
These are very difficult times. It is difficult to be social and difficult to be in a restaurant. Brewster Inn In Cazenovia New York, has mastered the technique of social distancing, cleanliness and safety for its patrons. The bar has seats divided by plexiglass windows,...the restaurant is no more than 50% seated, there are ultraviolet-C lights cleansing the air. The staff is fastidious in there cleaning of tables and chairs. The outdoor patio remains open with good airflow, heaters, and greater than 6 feet social distancing. The food remains impeccable and the staff are attentive and concerned for the safety of their patrons. We feel safe here and enjoy the experience and the food. Simply stated, in these difficult times, this is a great place for dinner.

A great Friday dinner on the patio!
Calamari, crab cake, Chevre salad, Maytag salad, Sea bass & Berkshire pork. Everything very tasty and well seasoned, with an excellent bottle of Macon- Villages!
Doug was also an awesome waiter for the evening.
We went to Sunday brunch recently at Brewster Inn. The scruffy maitre d' was rude and unpleasant; it was very obvious he does not like his job. The waitress, however, was very welcoming and gracious. (I wish I could mention her name but she did...not have a name tag.) The food was very good and the lake view was amazing!More
This was truly an enjoyable experience. Brad, the bartender, was a joy. He was informative and made delicious drinks (Jalapeno Margarita). It was our first time in Cazenovia dropping off our daughter to college and this place was so relaxing after a stressful move-in day....The view of Lake Cazenovia was beautiful and the information that Brad provided about the things to do and see was really wonderful. We tried a few suggestions and It was great advice! we will definitely return!More

Thank you so much for the kind words! We truly appreciate you taking time to do a review.
Bravo! Wonderful execution regarding outdoor seating within the phase 2 guidelines required by NYS. The food was excellent, the waiter was as well. I’m so sorry I didn’t get his name.
My only thought was that it was cool by the water. Obviously, not a...restaurant issue ( they did have a few outdoor heaters) Not a complaint because Yeah! We are out of our houses eating good food and viewing a beautiful lake.More
