“Sand Bar at The Lake House on Canandaigua offers a lakeside dining experience with a beautiful view. While some find the service slow and sometimes rude, others appreciate the improvement in quality. The menu includes dishes like three cheeseburgers, a beet salad, and a grilled chicken sandwich. The portions may be small for some, with the beet salad leaving one person hungry. The "smash burgers" are reportedly disappointing, but the fries are tasty. Prices can be on the higher side, with a lunch for five costing $135 before tip. Overall, the restaurant provides a decent and satisfying dining experience in a picturesque setting by the lake.“

Reason's Bar & Grill Bar • $
26 Coach St, Canandaigua

“Went for lunch and was delighted by the fast service and food. Both quality and serving size. Prices were low.What really impressed me was how clean everything was. This is a hometown local hangout. I expected more of a five-star dive and was amazed to find the kitchen area was as clean as my house( maybe cleaner). When I'm going into bars to eat. I'm always disappointed by the restrooms and nervous about eating. Neither was the case here. The bartender was polite, fast to take care of me and very friendly. I believe her name was Jill. There's quite a few of them called Jill there I've been told. It was a Tuesday and can I just tell you the tacos were amazing. I like just a regular beef taco. Yes, probably American style. Hamburger, little onion, lettuce, cheese, tomato with all the taco seasonings some sour cream and salsa. Portions were extremely filling. I will definitely go back for lunch maybe even try a quick dinner.“

“I went to put a smile on a friend's face and play pool. No tables around aside from the bars anymore. When you truly are in the right place for the right reasons, you have nothing to explain. If you put swedish fish in your Mike's or whatever you want, it's simply smart and yummy. Thanks Jimmy!

Vegetarian options: Why don't they do shikababobs? Everything is easier on a stick!!! ?

Dietary restrictions: Some alcohol contains wheat that you may be allergic to.

Parking: The older you are, the more you enjoy looking for your car.

Kid-friendliness: Yes but primarily during lunch service.

“Lock Stock Bar & Grill is a classic ski town style restaurant with homemade food served in an 80s movie-like environment. The soups, Mac and cheese, wings, and salads are all highly recommended. The waffles for brunch are a gem and the chicken and waffles are better than any in the south. The BBQ options are also great.

It's a great place to meet up with friends after work or have a party on a random Tuesday night. The outdoor seating area is a bonus, and the bartenders are friendly. While the food hasn't been tried by reviewers, the drinks are said to be excellent. On Saturdays, a live DJ spins tunes, and the mixed crowd is a plus. However, parking can be limited, so be sure to park on the side of the bar.“

“Eddie O'Briens Grille and Bar is a great place to eat, especially during non-peak hours. The staff is friendly and attentive, making sure customers get what they need. The restaurant is a popular spot for lunch, with a great selection of sandwiches and burgers. The Buffalo Bills Burger and Breakfast Burger are popular options, but it's best to specify the level of doneness. While the food is generally good, there may be some issues with execution, such as undercooked sweet potato fries. Despite some minor flaws, Eddie O'Briens Grille and Bar is a great spot to grab a meal in downtown Canandaigua, NY.“
