Templeton Landing, the waterfront restaurant on the approach to the Erie Basin Marina, has rewritten its menu to focus on seafood.
The vast restaurant at 2 Templeton Terrace can hold about 245 people, including indoor tables and outdoor seating areas that offer views of the Erie Basin and Buffalo River.
Customers can come by land or sea, as the restaurant has boat parking spaces in addition to a 250-spot parking lot, according to a press release.
"The time was right to unveil a menu that matches Buffalo’s booming restaurant scene,” said Matt Ott, Templeton Landing general manager. “We invite locals and visitors to drive, walk, bike or boat and experience the new Templeton Landing."

Cooked dishes include lump crab cakes ($15), clam chowder, and a jumbo fish fry ($16). More creative dishes include Walleye in Paradise ($24) using Great Lakes fish that's cornmeal-coated, fried and topped with a tomato basil crab relish.
