Dining on Thanksgiving in the Finger Lakes

I am visiting Waterloo NY on the 27th of November to do some shopping with friends. We are staying at the Holiday Inn in Waterloo. Looking for a GOOD restaurant for Dinner. Ate at the Holiday Inn last year but would like to try something else. Most of the well reviewed restaurants are closed that evening. The Belhurst is open, but have read some mixed reviews. Any suggestions? If we do go to the Belhurst would you suggest a sit down Thanksgiving menu at Edgars, or ordering off the menu at Stonecutters. Thanks~

  1. when i was little (but a mini chowhound) i remember eating at this restaurant on lake was always a special may have changed but worth a look..not sure how close it is to waterloo, though

    1. There is a place that is a bit of a drive from Waterloo (called Elderberry Pond), but well worth it - they are a winery that grows most of their own produce, and they have a wonderful Thanksgiving menu:

      If you do go to Belhurst, I recommend the grouper as an entree, and the pumpkin cheesecake for dessert!

        That looks great, but it is closed after 4:30. We need something open over the dinner hour, and almost everything is closed. May end up at the Belhurst. Is the grouper available in Stonecutters or only in Edgars?

        1. re: kathyt64

          I believe the grouper is only available at Edgars. I think their menu is larger (and a bit more upscale).

      2. Think there's a place called Waterloo Inn, is right on the canal.

        1. It's a half hour away, but I'd call Woodcliff and see what they offer.
