Chef Burke was very easy to work with and accommodating with our two wedding meals for 30 - 40 guests. The rehearsal dinner included salmon and chicken entrees, salad, potatoes with carrot cake and gluten free mousse. The breakfast featured breakfast bars of omelettes, oatmeal, yogurt parfaits, meats and French toast. We asked the "singing chef" to sing at both meals, and he was happy to serve....just like icing on the cake! La Familia has wonderful staff and a warm atmosphere. Looking forward to visiting them again this winter as they extend their hours.

Locally renowned for good food from scratch! Over 13 beer taps and 40 bottles to choose from. Come enjoy our unique fun, casual atmosphere of our outdoor pavilion and patio! There is something for everyone at Guppy's. Voted 2016 Best Overall Dining Experience (Lake Erie Living Magazine)!
This small establishment is right near our vacation home, but even if it were farther away, it would still be a frequent favorite on our list. Great variety of food and drinks, with a choice of indoor and outdoor dining both winter and summer. the heated outdoor bar is popular with winter sports enthusiasts, and it's delightful in the summer as well. Try the fried fish or Cajun chicken alfredo! fun atmosphere and great wait staff and owners!

Open from Memorial Day to Labor Day.
We hadn't been to Webb's in awhile and decided to go for Sunday dinner. We had a special dining card that we planned to use. It turned out that there had been some minor changes in what we could order (no specials) but that wasn't a problem with their extensive menu. My wife and I both ordered chicken entrees that were imaginative and flavorful. I liked that they asked if we wanted rolls since so often they go uneaten and become needless food waste. We were seated promptly by a male server who provided menus and filled our water glasses. When our female server arrived she was less than friendly as she explained the new rules on specials. Then she disappeared. While we waited for her return, the male server (who was attending other tables) refilled our water glasses. Our server returned and took our orders. The male server refilled our glasses again. Finally we received our meal and did see our server more frequently. Once we finished, it was again the male server who removed our dishes. We waited patiently for our again absent server to get our bill. Finally the male server asked what he could do and we gave him our credit card to give to our server (we hadn't received a bill yet). When we got our bill it was highlighted that a 20% tip had been included. Our server DID NOT deserve such a tip. Though I usually tip 20%, I don't for service at this level. Our meal/visit would have been much better if we would have had that male server instead of ours.

So, people aren't kidding when they tell you that Boxcar Barney's has huge cones. Their ice cream is good and, ordinarily, you might be tempted to say it is overpriced until you see the portions. A baby cone here is equivalent to a small elsewhere.
As far as the food, don't bother. It's nice that they offer more than ice cream, but their fries are sub-par, the hot dogs didn't seemed grilled in any way (flat top or other), and the corn dog nuggets were a great idea but greasy and too sweet. Come for the ice cream for sure!

Wed-Sun 7-2. Only been for breakfast but WOW! Can eat inside or out. Larger crowd on weekends. Very friendly staff. Cash only. Chocolate chip pancakes were fabulous--had them with eggs and bacon. Only could finish one pancake they were so big--so I had the other one the next day. Omlettes were great too and they have specials.

I ordered pasta carbonara, which all Italian restaurants don't do very well. I am of Italian heritage, Love to cook, have worked part time for almost nine years for Williams-Sonoma. The Carbonara that I was served was wonderful, I highly recommend this restaurant to anyone looking for good Italian food

Food for Thought is a gourmet deli right in the heart of Chautauqua Institution. Delicious sandwiches, breads of all kinds and tasty desserts highlight a store which also includes gourmet jams, condiments, chips and an assortment of kitchen gadgetry. Always an interesting visit, be prepared for a line - but it is worth the wait.

The Bemus Point Inn is an Institution in the Area it has Excellent Breakfast and Lunch fair and they are known for their HUGE cinnamon rolls the slogan is "Where you can wake up with the sweetest Buns in town"
Stopped at 9:30 for a late breakfast. The place was packed, always a great sign. Upon entering we discovered the place was really hopping! We found an unoccupied table, sat down and were immediately greeted by a very cheerful waitress. Menus delivered, drink order taken. After she left we were asked by both of the other waitresses if we wanted to order drinks. It was clear that they all worked the entire dining room together, covering each other's backs. The wait staff sailed through the dining room cleaning tables, taking orders, delivering food, refilling drinks. Awesome! Our food was delivered in short order. We each ordered omelets. The arrived hot and perfectly cooked. Our drinks were never empty, and each member of the team stopped at our table to make sure we had everything we needed. Outstanding service, great food, reasonably priced! Best breakfast I've had on our whole trip!

Heirloom Restaurant opened up in the Athenaeum Hotel in the summer of 2014. Heirloom is a full-service restaurant that is available to hotel guests, Chautauqua visitors and guests coming from off the grounds for a great dining experience. It is open 7 days a week and is available and open to the public from June 24 through August 27, 2017. All outside dining guests receive a complimentary gate pass to Chautauqua Institution. A gate pass that has amphitheater access will have to be purchased if you plan on attending amphitheater entertainment.
Our first entree was way over cooked. Our waitress was so sweet and offered us a different selection. Heirloom tomato salad with cardboard tomatoes and only one pickled tomato, entree was epic fail with bitter collard greens, over cooked bitter brussel sprouts and burnt fried chicken. Baked Alaska for dessert was ok. Wine was very good. Service was great. Overall I recommend to go for the ambiance, not the food.

Close by Chautauqua town, I wanted to try the breakfast, which is my most important daily meal. Certainly the restaurant is an eclectic, fun atmosphere, housed in a 100 year old building. The breakfast was not bad, but not really memorable. With the exception of a very tasty homemade biscuit, all was pretty run of the mill. The coffee, above all, needs to be better. It is worth a try, maybe I caught them on a bad day, and perhaps you would like it more than I.
