Really love the patio area. Beautiful flowers and seating areas with fire pits for when the evenings start to cool off. Too bad they are closing up already for the season. Had an enjoyable evening by the water.
Kristen is The best waitress! Every time I go there I ask for her and I am always more than satisfied!
I took my Mother out for a nice dinner. She ordered the chicken and it was a tiny - tiny piece of chicken on potatoes with green beans. Saw someone at another table making fun of it.
Selection so small
Server was good...not her fault
Wonderful! I was so impressed with this restaurant. A friend and I stumbled upon it by "mistake" and we are very glad we did! The food was very well prepared (I ordered salmon and it was one of the best I have ever had) and the atmosphere was pleasant.
The only improvement I could offer would be to allow the staff to wear name tags. Our waiter was phenomenal but I can't recall his name. I think having a visual (name tag) would allow customers to make a greater connection with staff.
Overall, I highly recommend Templeton!
Service was on the slow side but manager and server were very friendly. Apps were okay, ceviche wasn't very good at all. Essentially tasted like salsa with some chunks of fish thrown in it. All the dinners were good. Three different fish entrees, salmon, cod and perch all cooked really well. Has the feel of an older era restaurant, 1970-80's. Outside dining and patio is awesome though.
We asked for a window table upon arrival. We had a reservation. Although the room was nearly empty they said that no window table was available. After leaving 1 hour and 15 mintues later all the tables including window ones were still available. It was 8pm on a Sunday when we left so not many more people would be arriving for dinner. Chicken wings which should be a slam dunk in Buffalo were mediocre at best.
If you're coming here for just drinks and french fries after work during the summer then 5 stars for SURE!
I want so desperately to love coming here! The location and set up of the restaurant is unbeatable! I struggle with their menu/consistency of food for the price.
Sunday brunch is simple and boring. I could go to a family diner for the same meal and spend half the money. Appetizers are also very simple. Something I could easily cook for myself at home. When I'm out to spend money I want to be dazzled!
They do a wonderful job for special events. Bathrooms are always clean. Parking is a breeze.
Great ambiance, great view. Awesome service.Love the outdoor fit pits.
Beautiful scenary, food is not up to par with other restaurants in the price range
Dining outdoors by water is a prime attraction in western New York. The atmosphere was somewhat ruined by the constant harrasment of bees. We spent the first hour swatting them until we asked for lime juice to be placed nearby to get their attention. The wait staff was exceptionally helpful.
I can't complain about eating on the water on a beautiful day. The food was good but a little over priced. The wine list was adequate. When you're dealing with a restaurant on the water though you can't expect too much because you're paying for the ambience. Our server was good. My only suggestion is they are just maintaining the restaurant, they aren't updating it. You can see signs of wear in the decor from when it's hay day as Craw Daddy's. It needs a good face lift.
1. Hostess greeted us with no smile and an unfriendly tone of voice "can I help you"
2. Waited 15 minutes for a server, had to go and ask for one.
3. Waited 30 minutes for appetizer, manager took it off the bill
4. Found a bee floating in my sangria. Was provided new drink, no charge
5. Entrees were delicious but pricey. Salad is not included.
6. Server bought us a dessert on her which was very nice.
Server was mediocre at best. Ordered medium well steak and it was still mooing when it got to our table. Not good!
Wonderful late Friday afternoon on the patio. Our server Kristin was wonderful and the food was exceptionally flavorful. This is one of the finest spots in the area. You feel like you are far away on vacation but only 20 minutes from home.
Beautiful summer day sat out on the patio and everything was wonderful!
Great service and delicious food!
We ordered spinach salad and fish fry
Perfect summer night by the water
Great location on Buffalo waterfront. Good salads- including unique Korean salad with good flavors. Beet salad was delicious as well. Service was very pleasant but a little slow.
Love Templeton!! We just kind of discovered it last summer, and have been there 3 weekends in a row this summer, once for dinner and twice for brunch! The views, the food, the wait staff is all awesome!
The ceiling was dripping from a water leak 6 feet away from our table and staff were using a dishpan to collect the water. Furthermore, at some point a staff person walked by with a small machine and dripped oil on my husband and godson's shoes and shorts. Staff provided us seltzer water ....and a desert.
I will never go back.
Had a lovely relaxed lunch here with a group of lady-friends. Enjoyed a warm summer afternoon and a nice water view. The menu had a variety of choices to appeal to a wide range of people. Service was attentive, but we never felt rushed.
Wait staff is friendly and engaged. Location is beyond beautiful.
Waitress was very attentive and patient despite a returned drink. Beautiful scenic view of the waterfront. Great bar scene and live music. Definitely one of my favorite spots in Buffalo.
Beautiful location and view. Staff always friendly and helpful. Outside music speakers too loud for easy conversation. Otherwise, great.
We had a wonderful family birthday dinner. All the food was delicious!
SKIMPY PORTIONS FOOD WAS NOT THAT GREAT WILL NOT BE BACK
Nice choices. Excellent service.
Hostess was abrupt and rude which started the evening off on the wrong foot. Afterwards our waiter was very accommodating and pleasant.
The waterfront location was beautiful. We had a nice view of the marina. The filet was very tender and melted in my mouth. Our server was April. She was very attentive and knowledgeable about the menu.
Service was excellent and the staff made sure we were completely satisfied with the service and food. Our server even brought us marshmallows to roast over the fire we were sitting next enjoying the view of the waterfront. I strongly recommend this place to anyone looking for good food and a great atmosphere
The atmosphere on the patio is fantastic! Beautiful view and fun feel! The food was OK - my fish fry tasted like it had been sitting out for about 15 minutes after cooking but it was good tasting! Our waitress was AWESOME!! I give her 5 stars!! The menu on the patio is very limited. Too bad the beautiful setting can't be
Combined with great food!
Our reservation was for 8pm. They weren't able to seat us until 9pm.
The band was lovely. The spiders were overwhelming. The servers were kind.
I'd recommend for drink only.
The food was good, but i was expecting it to be better considering the prices. One crab cake was $15. Our waiter was great, but the food wasn't worth the price. The view of the water was great.
We had a reservation but a table was not available when we arrived. No problem we went to the bar and was told it would be about 10 minutes. 25 minutes later after watching people be seated I went back to the Hostess who couldn't remember our name and said oh yeah I forgot you were waiting. 10 minutes later we were seated and waited 10 more minutes for a waiter. Our main course came before our appetizers and when I asked where our appetizers were the response was "this is the order to food came up" 10 minutes later came the appetizers and they were cold. My salad was dripping in dressing so much that I could not eat it. No one came to ask us how everything was and we had to waive someone down to get our check.
Very disappointing experience
Will not come back
Will not recommend
50th Birthday Party was a huge success! Thank you to the staff for being so accommodating.
Nice place on the water. It was good fun, nothing special but very tasty. We each got the burger and it was very good. We ate outside and watched the boats come and go. The had a DJ outdoors and later a live band. Very fun place and I would go again soon!
Service was awesome - Julia made our visit so special! The setting and ambiance are unmatched in Buffalo. Beautiful patio with a view of the water and boats. Food was very good, but it's a pretty standard basic menu - nothing very innovative, but everything we had was very good.
The service was great. The food was delicious. The meal was well paced. The view was incredible. This was our first time dining here and we will definitely go back.
went there for lunch with out of town friends whom i haven't seen for fifty years. we did wait for our server to take our drink order and after giving our entree order , the entree came before the soup came out. that was due that they never put the order in. when the soup finally came had to be sent back to make it hot, also one persons soup came so late that she sent it back. the entree were just as bad. chicken salad was not good. i had thought it was a sandwich but it was a scoop of salad with pita on the side. did not finish it. ham and cheese sandwich was dry and only half eaten, same for the turkey sandwich. the manager was very nice, we did not ask for the manager but kneew we were not happy so he said that he would take the soups off our check. needless to say he did not. will never return there.
Very enjoyable evening
