“Great view of the lake, mediocre food”
Reviewed 20 June 2014

Wolfies has a fine bar, great bartender the night we were there. Outdoor dining on their deck (you have to order food at dinner time to be seated there) affords a beautiful view of Lake Cayuga. There is a good selection of Finger Lakes wines. But then there is the food. The broccoli was cooked to mush, the broiled scallops were ok, and the haddock with seafood topping was bland, oh so bland. The salads were made with good, fresh greens, and the steamer clams were top notch. All of the staff is friendly and attentive.

“Great Lake Presence”
Reviewed 15 April 2014

If you're thinking of having a drink on a nice day by Cayuga Lake, you can't beat Wolffy's. In fact, you're almost sitting over the lake.

Why only 2 out of 5 you ask? Beyond the drinks and the view, there's not much to recommend. Certainly not the food and that's a real shame.

“Thanks!!!”
Reviewed 15 September 2013

We were staying on our boat at the wall in seneca falls for the weekend so the only restaurants we could go to had to be in walking distance. We went to dinner late Saturday evening when a fire broke out in the next building and we had to leave before eating. A friend of ours and his daughter ( an employee of wolfy's) met us for dinner and when we had to leave, she called Woolfy's to see if we could eat there. They were so accommodating so late in the evening, gave us great service and food. We had a great time and appreciate all they did to make the rest of our evening enjoyable. Thank you Woolfy's and Jessie!!!

“Fun place on the water”
Reviewed 3 September 2013

It was a full moon night, and we wanted to sit outside. We had drinks at the bar, and before long were ushered outside. Service was a bit slow, but the ambience was delightful. We watched the full moon rise over Lake Cayuga. By the time we got our food it was pretty dark to see out on the deck, though, and the mosquitos were making their presence felt. Food was good and plentiful.
We shared a portobella sandwich, which was plenty for two of us.
Service was friendly and laid back. Music playing was pleasant. Definitely a nice spot for a summer evening on the lake. Better to get their well before sunset and moon rise, or else eat inside.

“Spectacular lakeside view with food to match”
Reviewed 3 September 2013

From the road, you're tempted to drive by what appears as a so-so beer joint--however don't miss this place. On a warm summer evening, you will be entranced by the view from the outdoor deck providing a dining setting directly on Cayuga Lake. The locals know this hidden gem, a few miles south of the pleasant village of Seneca Falls. Many arrive by boat to join the festive laid-back atmosphere. A good place for families and casual attire.
The staff are very helpful, friendly and quite knowledgeable of the food and beverage menu. Solicit and trust your server's recommendations.
We much enjoyed Wolffy's selection of fine wines well sourced from nearby boutique vineyards. Their seafood is varied and excellent. Large portions and good value for money. Save room for dessert; one superb mega-calorie example--bananas Foster cheesecake with real whipped cream.
If you're travelling the NYS Thruway, Wolffy's will be a convenient and delightful diversion. Less than 15 minutes from Exit 41.
