In Ithaca for daughters graduation and decided to take a drive up the lake and found this gem. They had a vegan meal for our daughter. Pork chop was large and tasty. Shrimp scampi and Spring pasta was all very worthwhile.

The atmosphere is fantastic as is the secnery. Most of the food is local and much of it comes from their own farm. Food is delicious and plentiful. Adult beverages are available. Service is impeccable

1st trip and we were not disappointed. Food was great, service was spot on, loved the desserts too! Maybe some other eateries in Auburn could learn about service from the staff here.

This is my family's favorite restaurant because of the country setting, beautiful space, and attention to detail in its cuisine. High ceiling and views of nature. Delicious food that is fresh and well prepared. Cordial wait staff and noise level is refreshingly reasonable. Seasonal restrictions....More

No, they do not have a separate menu for children. You can go on their website and view a sample menu. They try to use seasonal ingredients, so the menu changes almost daily. The soups and pizza are great.
