Lake Area Eateries

These are places Paulette and Norm frequent.
DINNER: No music, no nightlife...just really great food and an assortment of hand crafted beers available for inside and outside consumption. No reservations available and expect a 30-50 minute wait during the peak of dinner in the summer season. Grab a beer on their enclosed patio and join (or not) the great conversation. $$

DINNER OR LUNCH: Eat in, Take Out or Delivered. Italian and American food eatery that is the nearest full service restaurant to Chautauqua Institution. A little noisy for my taste.

DINNER, LUNCH & LATE NIGHT STUFF: Lakeview has a wide range of food (Bar Food, too) and is touristy and has live music, or a DJ or trivia many weekend nights. If you are hearing the fain sound of a live band, it's probably the Lakeview directly across the lake. The next door docks is less of a dive bar and shares a kitchen, but with a different more upscale menu. $ and $$
