In town for the cheese festival and knew I always wanted to go here. Service was great! Food was very good! Prices very reasonable. Enjoyed having the chef stop by our table, a nice touch. Will return.

The gustatory highlight of our Erie Canal trip was this restaurant. A canal-side inn, the menu leads French. The owner-chef is outstanding, as all of our four-course dinner dishes were delicious, interesting, and tempting. Wine by the glass choices complement the menu. Beer too. Service...More
