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!!!
Great food and service as always! The wraps are delicious!
We enjoyed our experience at Nolan’s! Excellent food!
Warm rolls and honey maple butter. House made salad dressings. Delicious entrees. Bread pudding to die for. Excellent service and ambiance. Will definitely return.
Celebrated my husband’s birthday here. Service was amazing and so was the food! Awesome place !
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.
Food was terrible, service was fantastic.
This was my birthday dinner. The prime rib was outstanding- tender, flavorful and satisfying portion!
Great food and service the food was timely for our meals to come out to us
Delicious food and great overall experience. However, the server forgot our appetizer. BUT they gave us a complimentary dessert, in return.
Friendly staff, excellent food with a wide selection from pub fare to sea food.
Food was great waitress was very nice the staff was great thanks for a wonderful night
The food and service was great! I highly recommend this restaurant. We celebrated our 35th wedding anniversary here and we were very pleased.
Everything was fine. They asked another couple to change tables as Inwas using a walker. Everyone was very accommodating.
Highly reccomend this Resteraunt. The food is always great. The service is very friendly. We've been there many tines without any issues. Great food and great service!!!
Excellent food and service. Noise levels were high, hard to talk.
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?
Very relaxing and pleasant.
excellent food, great waitress, low wait time, very well satisfied
We always love coming to Nolan’s! We came Saturday to treat my grandparents to a nice dinner since they are from Florida and we haven’t seen them I’m almost 2 years. Thank you for the wonderful service and great food <3
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!
Great food and service. We went for lunch and sat on patio but no lake view.
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.
The food and service were great. We didn't have to wait for our table it was ready when he got there.
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!
Our server Jessica did a great job! We had a party of 8, we sat down immediately, with a reservation. The meal came out quick and everyone enjoy their dinner.
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.
Great venue! Great food! Great service! Great experience!
My friend and I take each other to Nolans for our birthdays .Our waitress heard us discussing the dessert menu ,she surprised my friend with a rasberry chocolate cake and candle she really made our night special .The meal and service was wonderful
Great quality beef and seafood! Well worth it! Absolutely loved the Captain’s Platter. Best restaurant in Canandaigua

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.
As always, our meal was wonderful. The place was very busy and we had to wait 15 minutes after being seated for the waitress to take our order but everything after that wait time was good.
Dinner was fabulous as well as everything else. Its always a pleasure to eat at your restaurant Nick!!!!
We had a great dinner and a great night out for a Tuesday.
Food was excellent, service was very good. Especially enjoyed dessert
