Wonderful service, staff and view of the lake. Food was delicious and just enough to start our day. Loved the gift shop and did I mention how amiable staff were everywhere. Went back to bar that evening and had same high quality service.

My husband had eaten at this restaurant several years ago and enjoyed it so we decided to go when visiting Skaneatles recently. We came for lunch. He had the pot roast and I had the scrod christopher. Both were excellent. Will definately go back.
