Went for lunch. We both got a salad with wine. It was a beautiful day so the doors were open which was letting flies in. Food & service was great.

Enjoyed the view of the Erie Canal and the boats and drawbridge while eating a great dinner there. The fried chicken was exceptional! We then enjoyed listening to a great little band (Trade Winds) playing on the large deck. Very nice!

Situated right on the Erie Canal in Fairport, this is a really nice restaurant for summer time. Had fish tacos and others had hamburgers. Lunch menu was mostly sandwiches and burgers. Some vegetarian options.

A group of us went to dinner the Towpath last Saturday. The band Inside Out was playing there, and we all had a fantastic time. The music was great--they bring in super talent many nights of the week--and the food and service was excellent despite...More
