We had a very relaxing lunch with family. Casual elegance in this long-standing establishment. Plenty of tables with lake views. Butternut squash bisque was delicious. Good selection of local wine. Classic.

Excellent food in a peaceful town. We had lunch here. The service was quick and the portions were of a good standard. The onion soup is excellent, the cod fish was special and tasty. Recommended place for dinner or lunch.

An impromptu dinner on a beautiful evening when everywhere in lovely Skaneateles was really busy. Very enjoyable meal in a good location, with views over the lake. Friendly service too. Will return next time I'm in town.
