“During the warmer months customers can enjoy outdoor dining and the charm of Tuscarora Lake while on our large Adirondack style deck or covered porch. Try one of our customer favorites, like the Blue Canoe Burger, or our famous Reuben Sandwich, then top it off with our blueberry cream pie”

“1. This spot is my top favorite spot in Utica, I have never had a bad anything here. Every meal, appetizer, dessert they make is done to perfection. It's also a super classy but chill environment for comfortable dining. They have been on the top 100 for Restaurants in America on Open Table two years in a row now. Best to make a reservation as they do fill up fast. ”
