We all had the fish and chips for lunch and it was very good. We found out they also carried the local Omegang beer and each had a sampling of the main types that were outstanding. We ate outside on the deck and could see the kids playing on the docks.

When people are working hard and trying to improve their business , I always give credit for that. That's why my review of this place is generally good. The food is good to excellent. That's not a problem. I've eaten here several times while the place has been under the current ownership, and the food has been good. My problem... More

Thanks for dining with us and enjoying your meal. We appreciate your comments and observations. We intend to restore the antique wooden boats and keeping them in the water is the best way to prevent the wood for drying out too much. We use the stage for weddings on the lake- it works better than a tent because it is... More

Very good food served from a shaded deck overlooking the lake. Soooo peaceful and high value after the hype of C-town... and only a 15 minute drive on an empty road from the stage at Glimmerglass.

Headed for thruway, we wanted a restaurant that was going to be less crowded than those in Cooperstown after HoF weekend - and, indeed it was - but not only did it have character (an old speakeasy), the food was excellent - at least the grilled chicken sandwich and chicken wrap were - and the fries were outstanding - good...

My husband and I were in area to do the Erie Canal Boat tour. The Fountainview Motel was most economical place to stay but restaurants seemed sparse. We saw pizza, Stewart's, Subway and The Lake House. It is a big place on the water, so the view was nice. We opted to sit on the deck. Our waitress was a... More

We went to the Lake House for dinner after hearing them mentioned on the radio. What a pleasant surprise! The food was excellent, the ambiance was incredibly perfect, and the waitress, Christine, was outstanding. The meal was well under what we would have paid at a chain restaurant and well put together. We sat out on the back patio while... More

The view was beautiful but the service was poor. They didn't restock the buffet as often as they should have but the food was good.
