Had dinner with my wife and two other couples. I ordered the the broiled Bronzini (a Mediterranean trout). It was prepared exactly as I expected and was delicious. Also had the French Onion soup as an appetizer and it also was delicious. My wife and two other people ordered the grilled sockeye salmon, which was a nightly special. They all... More

We sat outside on the deck and the setting was lovely and the food good. Unfortunately there were a few too many spiders overhead in the eaves, and occasionally dangling down in front of us, to allow us to feel at ease while we ate. I understand we were in the mountains and we chose to sit outside. Most customers... More

On a day trip exploring the area we decided to stop for lunch as the review was good. Ordered two ice teas, a quesadilla and crepe. Sat on the porch over looking the lake - which was quite nice - and waited and waited and waited. The establishment was empty but even so it took a very long time to... More

Four of us were out for a summer dinner. Unfortunately, all the tables on the deck facing the lake are in the (hot) sun… and the tables in the shade weren’t so attractive. Inside is retro décor and a tiny bar. Flies seem to be a problem…there netting on the door to get through. Tonight music is scheduled and we... More

My family and I had lunch here on our way to the Pitbul concert. The food was exceptional. I enjoyed my chicken avocado sandwich and the vanilla egg cream was great. My family also enjoyed their meals. The cafe was a hit. The only issue we had was it took awhile to be served. The service was slow but they... More

This is a great little restaurant right on White Lake with great views of the lake. The food is delicious. I have been here a few times and I have never left disappointed. The desserts are always really tasty. Make a reservation especially on weekends since it does get really packed.

The Fat Lady Cafe is a hidden gem in Kauneonga Lake. They have outdoor tables that overlook the lake. The menu has interesting selections with an Israeli flair. The food is fresh and delicious and reasonably priced. I highly recommend this restaurant! Enjoy!

Our group has its annual summer reunion in Liberty NY each July. This year we discovered The Fat Lady on Kauneonga Lake. We were a group of 13 so I had an opportunity to see and taste a wide variety of their dishes. Every single dish was a winner. Appetizers included plump egg rolls, skewered shrimp, excellent salads and a... More

So we were grabbing a bite before a concert and while we had allowed hours of time the area restaurants were packed. The Fat Lady Cafe accommodated us (even if we were under a bit of a time pressure that turned out to be great fun) and everything was spot on. The service was outstanding and all the servers looked... More
