Mother's Day Dinner at the Rogues' Harbor Inn

The first Sunday in May usually brings sunny warm weather in the Finger Lakes, sometimes not always. We've been serving Mother's Day Dinner at the Rogues' Harbor Inn for the past 15 years. Our first year it actually snowed, disappointing. This year we're feeling optimistic- a sunny, warm day for an outing- dinner, a stop at a nursery for some annuals, dessert outside in the sunshine...
If a nursery is one of your stops next Sunday, there are several really good ones just minutes from the Inn. I like gardening so I visit all of them frequently. I buy all of our herb plants and annuals at Bakers' Acres, ornamental grasses & native perennials at the Plantsmen, and indoor flowering plants and hand painted pots from Michaleen's. Between the three I am always planting something.
We'll be here for dinner all day (noon till eight) serving our new spring menu along with some warm weather Mom's Day specials with wine and beer suggestions. Reservations recommended   (607) 533-3535
