Cityson is graduating, and we'll all be hungry to celebrate.

Cityson is graduating from a Western NY University. He's done great, and we're all as proud as we can be. About 8 family members are making the overnight trip, and would like to have a nice dinner after traveling on Friday, the evening before the ceremony, which is on Saturday, May 17. We're all staying at the same hotel in Bath, NY and Cityson requested a family restaurant meal rather than splitting up the extended family, as only a graduate and parents may attend the University-sponsored pregraduation dinner. I don't want to leave my own elderly parents and aunt to fend for themselves for dinner, either. The problem is that we've not eaten out at a restaurant nicer than a diner the entire time he's been a student, and have no idea where to go.

We're looking for local gems! Not dressy, formal spots, because one of the extended family is exactly 12 months old, and we need a relaxed-enough place we'd all be comfortable. My aunt is not very adventurous gastronomically, so I don't think an Asian or Indian restaurant would suit her.
I know there are wineries in the area - any tasty restaurants associated with wineries you'd recommend? Bonus points for outdoor dining options, and BYO is OK, too. We will have driven a fair bit to get to Bath, but I know things are Not Close By in this part of NY, and it might entail a bit more driving. All suggestions are welcome, and we all appreciate the Hivemind on this
