This outstanding restaurant has become noticeably poorer in the last couple years. The last 4 or 5 times we have been there have been a disappointment. Nolan's is running the food service for Canandaigua Country Club, and they have a large tent there where they cater parties. That seems to be the focus of their interest, no longer the restaurant....

I have had both Lunch and Dinner at Nolans - they not only have a wide-range of different types of main dishes, ie: seafood, Italian, steaks and specialty type dishes, the food is very, very good and the service is great as well!

I don't know why I thought there would be lobster in the lobster cakes when I've already written a review about there not being seafood in the seafood chowder/bisque. (It is mainly made of imitation crab meat--that pink stuff you see in cheap foods). I ordered the lobster cakes based on several good recommendations on Tripadvisor. It turns out these... More

The first night I ate here there was 5 in my party and everyone got something different and loved it. The second night I had the pork chop and it was one of the best ones... More

I can't understand why it only had 4 out of 5 stars. Our visit was perfect. Nice greeting when arriving followed by perfect service from a highly attentive and professional server. She explained the specials but we opted for the prime rib and steak. Both were outstanding. Right up there with a Ruths Chris or a Mortons. My wife always... More
