Dine & Drink

Inviting Spaces, Warm Service, and Fresh Flavors

From picnics on the lawn to celebratory, candlelit dinners at Rose Tavern and fresh oysters eaten lakeside at the Sand Bar, there’s an atmospheric dining option for every moment of the day. Equal parts American tavern and forward-thinking bistro, Rose Tavern features a menu designed to showcase the region’s stellar produce and internationally celebrated wines. And there’s no better way to cap a day at the lake than by sliding into a sun-warmed seat
at The Sand Bar, cold beer in hand.

Rose Tavern

A New American Classic

Rose Tavern is a New American restaurant serving a rustic, seasonal menu inspired by the bounty and beauty of the Finger lakes region. Centered around a wood fired hearth, Rose Tavern is heralded for embracing local ingredients and classic cooking techniques.

At its heart, Rose Tavern is a gathering place for the community as well as guests of The Lake House. It’s a restaurant that welcomes afternoon cocktails, family gatherings, and impromptu lunches with old friends. Our private dining room is the perfect setting for intimate dinners.  And no visit to Rose Tavern is complete without a taste of the owners’ famous dessert—the Sands family’s cherished chocolate bundt cake.  Family-owned and community-driven, Rose Tavern is a new dining destination in the heart of the Finger Lakes.

Sand Bar

A Reinvented Local Favorite

This newly revived version of a truly legendary local institution is where you can try a locally-produced wine or a cocktail created by expert mixologist Donny Clutterbuck, and watch as bobbing boats pull up dockside. Stroll in wearing your sandals and order healthy farmers salad or a perfectly made signature Sand Bar burger and reflect on a dreamy day at the lake while watching the sunset.

The Sand Bar is now closed for the season, please check back for our Summer 2021 opening date.
