I had a Groupon for 4. We ordered salmon, NYC strip, salads, lots of appetizers (cheese, pate, sausages and breads) and we enjoyed them all. If we didn't have the discount it would be pricey. The wait staff was attentive and very pleasant.

We had a catered family gathering, buffet style. Waitstaff was attentive with filling water glasses and removing plates. Selection and flavor of food was good. The room was a little on the warm side , could have used air conditioning on an 80 degree day.

I know they are closed on Sundays and I have not heard of any plans to feature a Sunday brunch during the Holidays. Suggest you give them a call.

There are some wedding menus listed online as examples with costs involved. I imagine it's better to contact their wedding planners directly to create the menu you specifically would like and in your price range. $20/person... More

Shadow Lake has been Rochester’s choice for a premier public course for over 30 years! The clubhouse facility overlooks sparkling Shadow “Lake”, a former crushed stone quarry (1920’s) before the site filled with spring water. In recent years, the lake was the local swimming hole until the club's founders, the Odenbach family, began construction of a golf course and club in 1977. Today’s facility is designed in the American Arts & Crafts Motif. Mission Oak and Stickley furniture adorn the interior. Thousands of families have celebrated special moments on the grounds of this special location!
