Bill has done well -- especially listing "Evolve Eatery" (Amsterdam, a block off the trail) -- try to make it there for b-fast or lunch. Also I caught a great Italian meal at "Sorrento Pizzeria" in Ilion -- just up the road from the Canalway. I have a traditional celebratory meal in Albany at "Better Bite" -- located diagonally from the state Capital (NW Corner of West Capital Park, Washington & S. Swan Sts.) featuring homemade Hash (the best) and lots of great food prepared by Greek family cooks. In Weedsport you can opt for a nice handcrafted brew at Lunkenheimer Craft Brewing Co., or stop along Rt. 31 a few doors down at DB's Drive in for a frosty ice cream choice with plenty of outside seating areas.

Lake Effect Ice Cream located at 79 Canal St. in Lockport is excellent.

Karens Produce makes a great cheeseburger. It is right off the trail between Amsterdam and Fultonville.
