My husband and I biked (as in motorcycle) to Kinzua Dam and found this delightful restaurant after our visit. This place is great for families with children, couples, boaters, and bikers. It has a lovely patio (much prettier than the pic that was taken in the fog/rain! lol) The patio is four-legged friendly as well because the couple behind us had their tiny chihuahua with them. The "chips" on the appetizers were really good!They were homemade potato chips and really were not greasy! You get enough to feed at least 4 adults. We shared a chicken tenders basket since we did not want leftovers and had plenty to eat! five large tenders and lots of good fries! Another great surprise was the coffee! It was very good! I was not expecting that at this sort of restaurant but it was really good. The inside of the restaurant is very large and comfortable in case it is raining. If you can eat outside, though, you will have a great view of the marina and the dam. Our server was friendly and worked really hard to make sure everything was great. We will definitely come back if we visit here again!

This place is off a very curvy road that also leads to Wolf Run Marina. It has both indoor and outdoor seating. The outdoor area was full so we sat indoors, it did not matter because they have floor to ceiling windows that encompass both sides of the restaurant. The restaurant faces the Allegheny reservoir, and you can observe the boaters, and the scenery. The server was prompt and friendly, and the menu was adequate for lunch, and they also had a dinner menu. Adult beverages were also available. The prices were average, and the food was hot and fresh. It was very busy and was a great place to stop for lunch before or after your drive.

Although the scenery of the water and boats is lovely the food was very disappointing. In our group of four, three of whom ordered the fish and chips. Everyone who ordered the fish said the fish batter had an unpleasant taste and their fries were barely warm. I ordered the calamari appetizer since I loved their calamari that I had ordered last year that was comprised of small calamari rings served with pickled diced red onion and mild banana peppers. This time the calamari was covered in a thick breading coating served onion ring style without the pickled onions and peppers. Tho the calamari was fried without being tough or rubbery, it was such a tasteless disappointment. The French soup was filled with soggy bread and overcooked onions. The sampler appetizer was half filled with homemade chips with very few pieces of chicken, mozz sticks and poppers for $15.00. We had taken guests out for dinner here and we apologized for a poor dining experience. Doubt we'll be back as we don't mind paying extra for a delicious dinner but we won't waste our money on lousy food.

While driving around the Warren-Kinzua Dam area, make sure to stop in at the Docksiders Café at the marina. The food is decent and the view is wonderful
