We had a lovely time at Nolan’s! The service was perfect. Ambiance was excellent. People were friendly and helpful from the moment we arrived until we left. The other diners seemed to be enjoying themselves too. I had the best lobster roll in years at Nolan’s! Delicious, tender, fresh lobster meat with melted butter on the side :))))

I thought that the restaurant was actually on the lake .. I was a little disappointed until we sat down and was greeted by the waitress .. from beginning to end the service & food was excellent! I will definitely be retuning!!!

Had a reservation for 5:30 when we arrived there was a 10 minute wait for inside or we could be seated outside right away. Staff was friendly and check on us a couple of times to see if we need anything. Good was excellent. Good service and good food couldn’t ask for anything else.

The restaurant is closed from 3pm to 4pm which means that by 4PM, the time of our reservation, there were about 35 people standing by the door waiting to get in. We were seated promptly and our order taken promptly but our server was pushed to the limit by the sudden taking on of all the people at once. It's no wonder that little things, like asking for a refill of Cola or a second plate so we can share, went unanswered until reminded with a 2nd request. But given what we've seen on things like Bar Rescue they did remarkably well given their self-induced overwhelming.
Local beer choices (like Naked Dove) were not available. Made me wonder if any of the products were locally sourced.
The food was very good, portion sizes were generous, and the food came up quickly and prepared as we asked for it. We ate outdoors under the roof-only section.

Food is always consistently good. My only down fall this time was we chose to sit outside for the breeze and view. Waitress asked if we wanted screen down said no however when a couple sat behind us she asked them they said yes. There went our breeze and view. Not sure what the rule of thumb is?

We booked an Anniversary dinner at Nolan's for 4;45 pm. We arrived on time and we seated immediately. Servers were attentive taking our drink and dinner orders. Serving size for each of the dinners were more than we could possibly eat. My wife had Chicken Alfredo which could have fed a family of 4. I had ordered the 12oz Prime Rib which was amazing. We will certainly be back for sure!

Asked for an outdoor booth. There were 3 open booths. Told they were for large parties. Each booth was seated with parties of 2 after we were seated at table by the door. Very frustrating. Would never go back.

Everything about our meal and service was perfect. The salad was very fresh and delicious warm rolls with honey butter. My friend’s French onion soup was the best she ever had, not too salty and lots of cheese. Her prime rib was outstanding and a very large end piece. Her crème brûlée for dessert was also outstanding. I had the petite fillet which was cooked perfectly and the seasoning delicious. I especially loved the sautéed mushrooms that came with it. Even my zucchini side was extremely flavorful and cooked perfectly. Nolan’s has become one of my favorite restaurants. It is certainly worth the drive from Fairport!

Dinner at Nolan’s was just a pleasure. The food was very good, the ambiance was pleasant and our server was just the best. I would have given the food a 5 but I ordered a well done steak & it arrived bleeding. Our server was extremely apologetic & I was surprised how quickly she brought me a well done steak. I mentioned it was my husband’s birthday & even though we declined desert, she brought him a chocolate chip cookie with happy birthday written on the plate. She really made my husband’s birthday dinner special.

Nolan’s is an amazing restaurant with menu choices that are extensive and reasonably priced. It’s advisable to make reservations as it’s a popular venue. It’s also advisable to be hungry as the portions are generous.

WE WERE A PARTY OF 6. WE WERE RUSHED. SERVER WANTED TO TAKE OUR ORDER BEFORE OUR DRINKS FROM THE BAR WERE DELIVERED. 3 OF US HAD THE SIGNATURE OLD FASHIONED BUT IT WAS NOT THE SAME AS THE LAST TIME THERE AND NOT AS GOOD. WOULDN'T ORDER IT AGAIN. SERVER NOT KNOWLEDGEABLE
OF BAR SERVICE. WE HADN'T HAD 3 BITES OF OUR SALADS AND OUR DINNERS WERE BROUGHT OUT. WHATS THE RUSH? WE'LL COME BACK AGAIN BUT WILL BE MORE CAREFUL WITH OUR CHOICES AND MORE MINDFUL OF THE TIMING WE EXPECT.
