Great views of Brookville from the two decks, and even better food! We love this place! Best ribs and seafood fettecini in the area.They have a full bar and a good selection of ice cold beer on tap at all times.

We eat here quite often between April & October (when it's open). The food is pretty good & servings are large. The best reason for coming here is to get together with family & friends & enjoy the water view on the huge covered deck. Don't miss the onion straws & house dip...they're addictive! When the weather is good, it's... More

We often go hear for special occasions because the food is very good, portions are good, usually have a very trained attentive waitress/waiter and the view over the lake is so enjoyable. Although the entrance is very hilly, there is a special ramp for handicapped. There is an 'inside' porch for rainy or windy days.

We attended Ainsley Cafe for a wedding rehearsal dinner. The food was good but I have to say that the amount of food was over the top - way too much food for one person.

Service ok but we were in no hurry. Food good! Quantities and prices very reasonable. Something on the... More

We try to go here on few times during season on nice occasions and splurge a little and enjoy a nice dinner overlooking the water and the deck space was great. Food is always a plus here, it's a little on the high side of cost but it is delicious and not recommended for young kids I think. But an... More

After hiking in the park sat relaxing on the deck overlooking Brookville Lake and had a great meal. Beautiful lake, able to see a couple of Eagles fishing!

Exp. waitress ran my CC thru 2 times took 6 calls, 4 people and 4 days to get my money back. No apologies from the manager. We USED to frequent this establisment once a week EVEN though they are overpriced. Waitress was slow to wait on us and never received any refills. Food was dropped before it reached the table....
