The restaurant is connected in the same building as the canal cruise and the large gift shop, which makes it very convenient. It is right on the water and makes for a nice view. We had less than an hour to eat before our boat left. The waitress was very good about getting us our order, so we had plenty of time to eat and still make the boat with time to spare. The food was good, not great and for a tourist destination the prices were very reasonable. If you are there for the canal ride, it is a good choice for lunch.

If you come here looking for gourmet food you are in the wrong place. But if you come here looking for a mix of average/good food and some really good food but kind of pricey then you will be ok here. Really good foods we had, pulled pork sandwich, always a winner. Dessert of dutch apple pie was also really good if you like a soft texture. The fries that came with the meal were great. The Ribeye sandwich was so so. The creme brulee was kept in a fridge then just crusted before serving. My experience with creme brulee is that is usually at room temp with a light brunt top. But the slightly burnt top with cold custard underneath was not very good. View of the Eire Canal is great, nice shop next door, pleasant atmosphere. I will return.

We stopped at this restaurant 3 days ago for lunch. We didn't have to wait at all to be seated. The waitress came and took our beverage order and when she returned she asked if we were ready to order as there was a large party being seated and they would be busy. We gave her our order and the meal arrived a very short time later. It was a delicious meal and while we dines we viewed large boats cruising the Erie Canal which was a nice touch. It was an enjoyable lunch and the staff were friendly, attentive and tried very hard to please. We would definitely return if in the area again.

I am gluten free, the waitress had no idea what gluten free was. I think in this day and age people in restaurants should know what gluten free is. The food was good I had the Haddock it was nicely cooked and the vegetables that come with it mushrooms, onions, tomatos and peppers were nicely grilled. I even had an interesting time ordering drinks - neither waitress had ever heard of mineral water or sparkling water, yet I found on the back of the menu that they do indeed serve Saratoga sparkling water. I don't know if the waitresses were new but I think they should know their menu a bit better. So the food is good here but the service leaves a lot to be desired.
