We serve premium steaks, chops and seafood prepared on an Aztec Wood Fire Grill. This custom grill provides an exceptional flavor to your beef, chops and seafood not found anywhere in our region.

When you sit at our copper top bar or in our dining room you will find an unparalleled selection of wines available. Our Martini list is also designed to satisfy.

If sitting waterfront is your preference we have a deck, tiki bar and waterfront stage for you to enjoy with one of the best views in the Fingerlakes.

    Very unpleasant first time experience. Horrible smell outside at the barrel tables, SPIDERS all over at picnic tables, food took forever to come out; my boyfriend's salad had hair in it mixed with the ceaser dresssing on top of that it wad wilted then it took almost 35 minutes to get a refill of crab legs mashed potatoes were hard and cold.Took forever for a manager to come to our table, asked for him twice, we he came over he just looked dumb founded like he didn't know what to do. There were definitely alot of complaints that night. We drove way from Irondequoit to eat there because the Facebook page looks so inviting we definitely got the total opposite:(

    We invited our friends to join us at North Shore for All You Can Eat Crab Legs. After we were served we lost sight of our waitress. We caught her attention and asked for another order of crab legs for each of us. One-half hour later was the next time we saw our waitress and she brought us each one small cluster of crab legs. We told her right then to put in another order and she said she would. One-half hour later she appeared with another small cluster of crab legs. We were there for 3 hours. Near the end of our experience we watched as the people seated next to us had a waiter who was very attentive. Before they finished their first order the second order was brought to the table. I have no plans of ever returning to North Shore Grill.

    Staff was friendly and Food was good. Thought we would eat outside and enjoy the reggae but it was way too loud for that. Also the lakefront was full of the algae and litter so up close the view was pretty gross.Better to see it from the windows. The conch fritters 5 of them for $14.95 was way over priced and could not find any chunks of conch in the fritter. Once we moved inside the noise level was fine. We could hear the music throught the glass

    My wife and I were first-timers at the restaurant...went there on a recommendation from a colleague. (Further proof "the testimonial" is the best way to go when trying a new place to eat.) Our dining experience was excellent. The attentive staff, friendly atmosphere, and outstanding food...which started with an appetizer and ended with dessert...combined to make a perfect summer, outdoor dining adventure. I am struggling to find something negative to say, so this does not sound like a totally bogus review. Trust me: You can have a bad experience anywhere, at any time; that did not happen to us at the North Shore Grill! Here's a thought: Everyone seated around us...and the entire restaurant was busy...were regular customers.

    A thoroughly enjoyable dining experience. The staff provided great service from the moment we arrived. Our server was friendly and helpful. The Seafood Platter was a delicious combination of shrimp, scallops and fish, broiled in a light butter sauce. Also very enjoyable was the Fish Fry. The Bourbon Marinated Beef Skewers were tender and flavorful. The live music on the outdoor deck provided wonderful entertainment that still allowed private conversation.

    We were a group of 8 & our service appeared to be purposely slow as we were there for the unlimited crab legs. The server came over after we had been seated for a while & took our drinks & food orders at the same time. The drinks took 10 minutes, & after another delay of 10 minutes we were served bread. After 10 more min., our salads arrived. Finally 45 minutes after we had ordered the crab legs, they brought out 2 claws per person. My initial 2 were baby claws, in fact, I had never laid eyes on crab legs that small before this! After that, each time we ordered another serving, we were brought out 1 claw each & the time between servings grew longer & longer! The flavor of the food was great, the waiting & deliberate stall tactics were not!

    Went for all you can eat crab legs and was disappointed. Crab legs had barely any meat in them and you are only served 3-4 legs at a time. Server did not know menu very well-did not offer specials for the night, was told a salad did not come with crab legs when the website said it did. Menu items are very overpriced. $31 for a steak! However, the steak was very good. Cheddar-mashed potatoes were tasteless. Nice view from our table. Will probably not return.

    We took my mother-in-law for lunch and wanted something easy and outside. She has a walker so we are always looking for easy access options. This was the perfect spot to watch the water, easy listening but fun music, cheerful and helpful server, and great food served quickly. Make a reservation if you want to sit outside. We were seated when it opened but there was a waiting list by the time we left.

    Our 1st visit to the restaurant & we had company from California. We chose you because of the location on the lake & the fact that this is a trendy looking busy place. We weren't disappointed. Although we did get off to a rocky start (greeters confused,disorganized to the point of being inept when I was given 3 different reasons why we could not be moved to outside available seating, music in banquet room WAY too loud, Sat over 20 min with nobody giving menus or greetings,etc. While people who came in way later were being fawned over & served..) after I complained EVERYTHING changed & services greatly improved. The food was presented in an appetizing manner, server attentive & a delight,saving this special occasion & our 1st "Ring of Fire".

    So sad that the restaurant has not maintained its food quality. We visited this restaurant soon after it opened nearly 3 years ago -- EVERYTHING was OUTSTANDING! Our recent visit left us questioning if we would ever return to eat. The location makes one feel like they are on vacation, but meal was so disappointing - altho I must say the seafood nachos were yummy! Maybe we will just make this our cocktail spot. PLEASE improve in the kitchen! We NEED a GREAT place on the water to dine.

    Overpriced food. If you go there, make sure you eat first. Because you will leave hungry. Small portions. I ordered steak. No vegetable -only potato and salad. Wait staff college age. Didn't appear to have any senior supervisory staff. Plenty of help available. Lots of horseplay on the patio. Server forgot to ask about steak sauce. Had to go and find him. He also forgot to inform me about additional charge for blue cheese. Overall, not really impressed with the food because of the price and portion size. Very nice ambience and plenty of help. Can see how this place would be extremely busy on a summer night.

    The North Shore Grill is nestled on Conesus Lake in Lakeville, NY. Eat & Enjoy! The seafood was fresh and grilled to perfection and the salads were crisp and delicious. Our server was delightful, attentive, and always with a big smile. After dinner we sat outside, besides the fir-pit, and enjoyed a magical sunset on the lake. Wow! If you're ever in the area, The North Shore Grill is a must visit.

    I brought my lady to North Shore for the very first time. She was blown away first by the view of the lake and then as our visit continued the outstanding food and service. It was a perfect setting and a perfect afternoon to relax with good food, good service and good music. I have been a professional musician for many years, and although the reggae group was very fine, I felt bad for our waitress who had a difficult time conversing with us from the time we sat down from ordering drinks to letting us know what the specials were. She was awesome and did a wonderful job with a great sense of humor. As a performer myself, I would respectfully request that the sound man dial it back a little bit. We will definitely be back again!!

    Since the renovation and the addition of the wood fired grill. North Shore's prices have gone up appreciably, and in the visits I have made since, the food while good, was not as remarkable as it used to be. The wine list is very good and fairly priced. The service is friendly, and prompt only missing some small details, understandably on a busy night. Could have done with out the "Jimmy Buffet" Clone. They have had much better "Island" Groups in the past. Not a bad night, but not as great as one might hope based on past performance. Conch Fritters were the star but we serve them with Matouk's down island, not marmalade!
