Right on the shores of Chautauqua Lake, with indoor and outdoor (covered) dining. This is definitely the best view of the lake! They specialize in all types of fish & seafood and for being in western NY - far away from any fresh fish markets,...More

We eat at the Watermark at least once a week and love it. It's great to sit by the lake and have wonderful seafood, service and all at a very reasonable price for fine dining with a view.

Seated in a timely manner by a window. Food was excellent (Shrimp tower and French onion soup). Others in my party equally happy. Carrot cake was amazing. Would go again without hesitation.

We didn't get a reservation but lucked out and had outdoor seating as close to the water as is possible there, a nice view of the lake, people docking at the little drive-up marina, etc. (The indoor seating seemed a little dark, but there were...More

There were six of us on Sunday night and the place was not crowded. Some people were sitting outside on the covered patio and we wondered what happened to them when a sudden rainstorm came up! I had Faroe Island salmon with Caribbean sauce, accompanied...More

With the most delightful evening view of the lake, and a handsome restaurant setting, it is hard to believe the food could be so disappointing. The service was sloppy but sincere so we can forgive that, but the flounder stuffed with crab was clearly reheated...More

Are dogs allowed in the outdoor seating area?

Suggest that you call the restaurant to find out if dogs are allowed in the outdoor area.
I am wondering why Trip Advisor has your hours listed open now. We tried to visit for dinner and you were definitely not open. Wed 6-22-16. Hope that there has not been a family emergency of some sort. Signs outside are conflicting and inaccurate.
