I always love going here. The food is great - I like the atmosphere - casual but upscale, good walking distance to other nightlife after a meal

The soup was semi cold and the sandwich (which was a "melt") was cold. First unpleasant experience I have ever had there. I go there quite often. Service and personnel are always at their best though!

Very busy, reservations honored. Service was ok and friendly. The bread and the plates for our appetizer were a little slow in coming out. The calamari was good, could have been a little crisper. The home made salad dressings were great! I tried the honey Dijon. The pork chop was excellent, with onion rings and sweet potato wedges. The steak,... More

This outstanding restaurant has become noticeably poorer in the last couple years. The last 4 or 5 times we have been there have been a disappointment. Nolan's is running the food service for Canandaigua Country Club, and they have a large tent there where they cater parties. That seems to be the focus of their interest, no longer the restaurant....

I have had both Lunch and Dinner at Nolans - they not only have a wide-range of different types of main dishes, ie: seafood, Italian, steaks and specialty type dishes, the food is very, very good and the service is great as well!

I don't know why I thought there would be lobster in the lobster cakes when I've already written a review about there not being seafood in the seafood chowder/bisque. (It is mainly made of imitation crab meat--that pink stuff you see in cheap foods). I ordered the lobster cakes based on several good recommendations on Tripadvisor. It turns out these... More
