The location simply can't be beat at the confluence of the Genesee River and Lake Ontario. The beer is reasonably priced, the staff are always friendly, and the food is good quality pub cuisine. Obviously, it's August and everyone wants to be on the water, yet the crowd here is laid back and friendly. Love this place!

O'Loughlins doesn't seem to get the notice that some of the other nearby restaurants do but our lunch there was excellent. The food was great, service was right on and the scenery with water breezes gave it a nice ambiance.

We've always seen this restaurant from the Charlotte Pier side (west) & decided this was the day to venture over across the bridge to try this tucked away little restaurant that borders the east bank of the Genesee River where it meets up with Lake Ontario. The entryway, being summer, was opened and a little too casual, meaning we walked... More

One of the best places to chill with a cold beverage. Yes, they have good wings and burgers but the reason we come here is to grab a chair and sit on the edge of the river and enjoy the view. If you get here around 5 on Tuesday in the summer you can enjoy the parade of sailboats heading... More

This a nice mixed venue on the Genesee River. Locals and those visiting make for a comfortable atmosphere. The entertainment was fitting for a relaxing evening. The staff was attentive, food arrived hot and correct. The menu is simple but different then most. I'll be returning!

This restaurant was a pleasant find along Lake Ontario. The setting is very casual and is situated on an inlet to the lake. The outside seating was very comfortable and ideal for watching the boats pass by. The service was excellent and the food was very good. I enjoyed the Friday fish fry. The serving was plentiful and cooked to... More

Great location on the water. Wings were really good. O's Burger was good too. Location is the real draw here though. A seemingly non-stop parade of sailboats as the sun was setting was awesome.

This is not the Yacht Club atmosphere or crowd. This is a casual, hang out and have a beer place. Chicken wings were good. If you have a boat, you can tie it up and have a bite. If you have a dog, you can eat at the picnic tables on the parking lot side. Wear your tank top, shorts... More

We visited midweek at lunchtime. Service was very good, attentive waitresses. Food was tasty with good portions. We were encouraged to stay and enjoy the view-no rushing us from the table.

This little gem is a waterfront irish restaurant/bar. It has lots of seating on the water, not to mention much more room inside. The food is great. It's a hamburger joint with awesome burgers. Onion rings are fantastic, pizza logs are homemade(I think). The chicken salad is out of this world. The scenery is the selling point. Watching the boats... More
