    Walked in and was asked by the host whether we wanted to be outside or inside, we were celebrating my parents anniversary and came for the view so we figured outside would be better. We sat and waited 25 mins for our drinks, the waitress said she didn’t know why but her system kept saying no network; so the drinks were shorts not talls like we asked! Put in apps with drink order, 20 mins goes by, our entrees come out (oh and btw they were out of crab cakes, oysters and shrimp cocktail. Had they told us that we may have chosen to sit inside originally.) so she brought the apps out after we were finished eating. Never offered any dessert and we were there celebrating! The fire pits was another reason we went there, got dark and they were never turned on. Then overheard another waitress tell her table they were slowly closing up! It was maybe 9pm! Totally disappointed in our dinner experience!! Our apps weren’t even comped, i would never ask but they could have offered considering we didn’t eat them and took them to go!

    It was windy and service was a bit spotty (but they were busy). The wings were surprisingly delicious - perfectly crispy and well-sauced. The fish fry was huge and the fish tacos were basic but tasty. We split a thing of nachos with shredded chicken and they were divine. Watching the sun go down over the marina made for a perfect end of the evening.

    Right on the water. Delicious food, highly recommend their fried fish or wings. Service was good and quick. The only thing that was off putting was our table was completely covered in cobwebs. I sat right in it too and had to pull off the cobweb from my legs, chair and under the table.

    They were way understaffed. We waited for the table to be ready but I'm not sure why since there were very few people in the dining room when we were seated. The waitress didn't come over at all. We waited 10-15 min and could see she was the only one in the room serving tables. The table next to ours had 8 people and they didn't have drinks yet. When the waitress finally appeared in the room, she went to another table of 2. We figured she hadn't even gotten to the table of 8 so it would be a long time before she got to us. We left and went to another restaurant. So sad, this restaurant is right on the lake and is beautiful. Doesn't seem to be managed well.

    They were transitioning from outside dining to inside. It took 45 minutes to get our drinks from the bar. The lights flickered for a good 20 minutes, which was super annoying and almost gave me a migraine, before they turned them off. The food was ok, my tacos were cold, my tortillas were stale, the French fries were super cold, but the burger and shrimp were warm. The poor waitress was by herself waiting on every table alone.

    We were sat right next to the bar, which was loud. There were plenty of tables open that were in a quieter area. They were out of so many things on the menu. The waitress had zero personality. We will not go back there.

    Horrendously, slow service. There were six of us, and it took one hour to get our drinks. They were only two waitresses for the entire place the new owners clearly couldn’t care about anyone wanting to return as a customer.

    The Blue Point oysters were outstanding. Menu price was $ 18 for half doz. I was charged $ 24. It was straightened out but it was irritating. Burgers were very good but one in our party wanted well done but the kitchen couldn't handle that. The sound system was so loud! We could barely communicate with our waitress & conversation among our group was not pleasant. And when the singer was on break the "background" music was not in the background. After dinner we walked to the boat docks area. Still could hear the singer very clearly. Won't be returning to Templeton Landing.

    We booked a reservation on OpenTable, arrived on time and they said they only had 2 servers so we would have to wait another 20 minutes. No big deal. We sit outside (limited patio furniture) and wait at least 30 minutes. Hostess comes back (very nice girl) and says she was told they cannot accommodate anymore guests and was truly sorry. This was not her fault, but also not communicated to her appropriately. Upon leaving the App still had open reservations, which could have lead to the same issue for future patrons. If you don’t have the staff to provide adequate service, all reservations should be cancelled and people should be called prior too. Terrible service in that regards. Most likely will not be going back.

    Don’t go! We made a reservation for 615 before a boat ride at a set time. At 635 they said they couldn’t guarantee us eating because the kitchen was backed up and they only had 2 servers.

    What a disappointment. Not sure who took over the place, but our visit was an awful experience. Hostess “forgot” to seat us for 30 minutes(we did have a reservation!), food orders incorrect, incomprehensible wait times, fish in tacos was obviously spoiled. Witnessed a server(appeared to be the man in charge?) eating fries off of a plate before delivering to its table. So gross. Unacceptable. What a waste of a lovely location. Our entire party agreed that the place will be closed within weeks if improvements aren’t made. There are just too many better choices in Buffalo for a nice meal.

    Drinks were terrible and over priced. Long wait for a server as there were only 2 working. Nice dining tables that use to be outside are no longer. All customers ( even with a reservation) are placed down near the bar at plastic tables. This restaurant is clearly not fine dining any longer. If you’re looking to sit outside with a nice menu and music then this is not the place.

    Beautiful waterfront seating on deck. Menu has been slimmed down to more of a bar style fare. We enjoyed the wings medium style. The crab cakes for 20.00 were small and fried dark. The signature burger was delicious. The Parmesan fries with dip was a hit. The queso dip and chips were not good. Maybe the nachos would have been a better choice, but then again, we didn’t like the chips either (very thick). The garden salad was fresh and was a nice mix of vegetables. The tomatoes were amazing. Added chicken in Buffalo sauce was brought to the side, to be added. It almost seemed boiled which I didn’t really like. Our child ordered tacos from the only menu we were given. It was 14.00, and came with two tacos and chips and salsa. We asked for three tacos instead of having the chips and salsa, that he would not eat. It came out with two, and chips and salsa and some greens. He didn’t eat any of this of course, and it was disappointing to us that they did not make the substitution for our child. Our bill came to 175.00. We spent a lot getting drinks, apps etc. But you don’t have to spend a lot here to have a nice view, and pretty good food. They should consider attracting families by being more accommodating of them. Overall, they seemed to not have the business you would expect, and we were the only family with kids there.

    What’s going on with this place? No dinners anymore just bar food and fried food. Caesar salad came with a packet of Kens dressing. No indoor dining and very limited patio dining. Best waterfront in Buffalo and opportunity to really shine is squandered. Tony and wait staff are excellent and really trying but menu , seating choices are very subpar. We used to visit 2-3 times a summer but not this year. One and done. Please restore it to its excellent state of past years!

    No main menu as advertised on webpage - just limited menu outdoor seating. One item was unavailable and was given plastic utensils. Will not be going back. It was our 18th anniversary and had to go to another place to recover the buzz kill.
