“Awful!”
Reviewed 14 October 2013

Rude staff, horrible food, bugs everywhere, and obnoxious locals at the bar! The food is highly overpriced for what you get. There was flies and mosquitos flying around our food the entire time we were trying to eat. The locales were screaming obnoxiously at the game that was on TV. Overall, I would not return or recommend this place.

“Friendly staff and good food”
Reviewed 7 October 2013

The food was great. They even opened the restaurant a bit earlier for us so we could get a bite to eat after our long road trip.

“One of the best Ahi Tuna steaks ever served”
Reviewed 4 October 2013

We had a delicious dinner here. It's kind of the only place around to eat on a weekday night in Oct., as the one other nice cafe we were told about was closed (it was a Monday night, off season.) So we were expecting typical bar food. Only one server on, as someone had called in sick, so they were backed up a few minutes but not really super busy, so we were seated reasonably fast. I ordered the Ahi Tuna steak dinner w/roasted vegs, and it was cooked and seasoned TO PERFECTION, my compliments to the chef! Very good service, nice half-view of the lake (a modular home across the road blocks part of the view.) Pleasant atmosphere, relaxed.

“Good Local Place”
Reviewed 27 September 2013

My wife and I made a quick visit to the Finger Lakes mid week in late September and our B&B recommended O'Malley's as one of the few restaurants nearby that were opened. We were pleasantly surprised with how good it was. I think the restaurant's best feature was the excellent, friendly service. Our orders were taken promptly by a server who knew the menu. All the staff helped out, for example by keeping our water glasses filled, and there was good spacing between the appetizer, main course, and dessert. The food quality ranged from excellent for the smoked trout appetizer to OK for the scallops. The salads were crisp and fresh, and the brownie Sundae dessert was very good.

The restaurant is on the wrong side of the road to have great lake views, but the setting is pleasant nevertheless. While the food was not all gourmet, it was better than many other restaurants, and the prices were excellent. Overall, we felt O'Malley's was a very good value.

“Great little pub”
Reviewed 26 September 2013

We enjoyed our time at O'Malley's. Our server Chris was attentive and friendly. The food was abundant and tasty. Great pub, and great food. It sits right on the lake, and in good weather (which we did not have) you could sit outside and enjoy the view.
