The Legend

The Blue Canoe Grill is a local, home-style restaurant right on the waterfront of Tuscarora Lake in Erieville. Just 10 minutes outside of Cazenovia. 


Established in November 2011, owner, Trish Bookbinder takes great care in preserving the history of the original building and family-friendly special experience, as Head Chef Peter Kuzawski, creates a creative grill cuisine with something for everyone. 

Long ago there lived a Native American girl known as Blue Flower. She lived happily in a quiet village beside a beautiful lake. Good Heart also lived in this village, and he was Blue Flower's, true love. 


Since childhood the two were inseparable, and as time passed, their love for each other only strengthened. They longed for the day they could marry and begin a family. However, one dark night, fate stepped in. Good Heart, along with other men in their village, was called to war. Chaos erupted and Good Heart was not able to find Blue Flower before he departed...
