I love going to Yiayia's on a hot summer day, or even a cool summer day for that matter. There are so many flavors to chose from and the atmosphere is so friendly. Don't be scared of the line out the door, because the service is so quick!

This is my grandfather's favorite restaurant, so we are sure to go with him whenever we're in town. It's exactly what you expect a diner to be. Good food fast, a waitress who isn't mean, but isn't too nice either. Filled with locals and decorated with kitschy art. It's great!

Have gone there a number of times. Food and service never disappoint. Love the brisquet and the beers always cold. The owner is always there with a handshake and a smile.

Newly opened and famous for their lobster rolls is bringing in the people. So of course growing up with lobster rolls, we had to try it. You order at the counter (just a few items to choose from) and people are mostly ordering the lobster rolls. I ordered a lobster roll with a side of waffle fries. All the seats were taken on the deck in the sunshine which overlooks a waterway with boats from the yacht club in the distance and is kind of new englandish...kind of ! As soon as people left the tables in the sun, people rushed from the covered part of the deck to a table in the sun. Unfortunately, we saw a couple of older folks with canes and walkers and some just walking trip from step down and up from the sunshine deck to the covered deck. We sat at 2 bar high seats at a counter. The roll was good...very good with just the right amount of dressing to make it perfect. The waffle fries were also very good. It was $20 for the lobster roll and $3 for the waffle fries. We split it and were quite content. Would I travel 40ish minutes to go again? Probably not unless a friend or relative really wanted to go. They have a really good gig out there and wonder how they would do closer to Rochester...like on the water at the Port of Rochester or someplace where there is a marina?? I think so! Definitely worth the trip to try it. They also have a hot dog on the menu and a fried fish choice and a few more sides to choose from as well as some craft beers and sodas. Too bad there wasn't more space for sitting out near the water as it does get crowded.

Our family vacationed nearby for a week and locals recommended eating at Burnaps and buying local produce there.
We enjoyed a wonderful lunch at Burnaps Cafe. Our daughter had a salad and my husband and I had sandwiches. Everything was very tastey and fresh. The next day we returned and picked cherries in the cherry orchard behind the store. The cherries were so delicious! We also purchased fresh Burnap blueberries that were so sweet, and two small jars of homemade strawberry jam and peach butter. The strawberry jam was quite tart, so we did not enjoy that very much. The peach butter was absolutely delicious, though!
Burnaps is well worth the drive and if we ever vacation in the area again we will go back for lunch and more fresh produce.

Huge scoop sizes that have increased since last season. Love the outdoor setting for kids to take photos in props. Very friendly service. Ontario is lucky to have this shop.

My husband and I were on our way to the airport and had limited time to eat. We just happen to be driving through Walworth, NY and saw Mark's Pizzeria. Since airport food is usually less than attractive, we decided to stop in hopes of getting hot slices.
Upon entering the establishment, I was surprised at how clean the dining area was! We were greeted by the young lady at the cash register who promptly took our order. Everything we wanted was available... and HOT!
We decided we had a few minutes to sit and eat. While eating our slices, we watched the news in the dining room. A final trip to the ladies room and we were on our way... Whoa! Ladies room was spotless!
I have been in many pizza joints in my day, but this one out does all the rest!

Dining and Sweets are our specialty in a hometown, Main Street Americana atmosphere. The Original Candy Kitchen, a.k.a. “Nick's,” Candy Kitchen, Williamson Candy Kitchen, and The Kitchen, has been an institution in the town of Williamson, New York since its origin in 1890. It has been in the Boosalis family for four generations and is currently owned and operated by Mary and Peter Anagnostopoulos. Originally an ice cream parlor, the business has slowly evolved over the years into a family restaurant/candy store. It offers traditional food with some Greek and Dutch specialties. Williamson is a predominantly Dutch community, and selections like Dutch Lettuce and a traditional candy known as Sugar Speck, or Sucre Spek, can be found at the O.C.K. Sugar Speck is a hard candy made from brown sugar and cider vinegar. Hand pulled candy canes and ribbon candy, available in many interesting flavors, are a traditional favorite at Christmas. Peanut brittle is another fall and winter candy that can be purchased from October through March. Chocolate has become the main ingredient at the O.C.K. where customers can choose from assorted candies to fill a customized box with creams, truffles, clusters, caramels, and other varieties for a personalized box of favorites. Molded chocolates made from a variety of over one-thousand molds dating from the 1800's can also be purchased year round . Unique candy creations are available during the Christmas, Valentine's, and Easter seasons. The O.C.K. is one of the final remaining authentic candy kitchens in the upstate New York region and boasts a nostalgic 1950's era ambiance complete with a soda fountain, chrome-rimmed stools, and wooden booths.
My favorite local spot. The owner Mary is great and her staff is amazing. We like to sit in the booths in the original section. Great selection of homemade chocolates and other candy gifts for sale.

We went here with a group of six, based on the recommendation of a friend. Overall, it was a disappointment. I had a combination of chicken and ribs. The chicken was just ok, no real BBQ flavor. The ribs were St. Louis style with good smoked flavor and ample meat. I had thought that the four rib portion might be too small, but they were large enough that I would have been satisfied with just the ribs. My wife had a pulled pork sandwich, which was decent but not particularly special. One of my friends, who is a BBQ fan, ordered his usual one pound of fatty brisket with no sauce. He shared samples. It was good with decent smoke flavor. Our other friends ordered brisket with sauce. They were uniformly disappointed. What the restaurant had done was to take the slices of brisket and put their sauce onto them, and then finished them on a grill. What resulted was very crispy, almost burnt pieces of tough meat. Since none of us were from the area, we will not be going back to this restaurant -- but if we did I would recommend getting brisket with no sauce and just adding what you wanted at the table. I would also say to stick to the ribs and forget the brisket and/or the chicken.
The various sides that we had were good. I wanted greens but they were out, so I had green beans and ranch beans.
