This restaurant looked closed, but it was not. We had lunch, the food was good. They have music on sundays and thursdays. It was clean and bright inside. There was also an outdoor area to eat , and enjoy the beautiful view of Oneida Lake. The prices were reasonable. The staff was very friendly and efficient service was a plus

Stopped by around 5 pm on a Thursday. It was a nice afternoon so we figured we'd have to wait. We were handed a buzzer but never were told how long the wait was. We went to the bar and waited close to an hour, realizing folks who were at the bar before us hadn't been seated. We had two... More

We apologize that you had a disappointing visit to our establishment on more than one occasion. Please understand that everyone wants to sit on the patio during the summer. The weather is nice and the view is gorgeous. However the wait is often very long and if you are not comfortable waiting the amount of time it takes to be... More

Always packed. Good food at good prices. Have a cocktail and relax .. food comes out somewhat slow .. remember I said 'they're always packed. You'll enjoy the views of the Oneida Lake southwest side.

We were very impressed in all ways. Family run restaurant. Every employee we interacted with seemed to be genuinely happy to be there. That resulted in excellent service. Prime rib and seafood entries were spot on. We noticed a wide variety of diners and dress codes, yet everyone seemed like they belonged. We paid around $30 per meal but there... More

The staff at Borio's was very organized. The food was EXCELLENT! Couldn't have wished for a nicer Mother's Day. We were seated promptly. There were a lot of people enjoying Mother's Day and there was never a line at the buffet. Thank You!

Went there yesterday for the Sunday brunch with family. Food was average at best and some of the items on the buffet were lukewarm to cold. Total bill for 2 people was $37.25 and they charge $2.25 for a 6 ounce cup of coffee. Could have gone to a local diner and had better food for much, much less. Save... More
