One of the most famous restaurants in Hamburg is the famous Hoak's.

Hoak's is right off of Lake Erie, along Lake Shore Road. It's so close to the water that during the cold-weather months, ice has formed on the establishment from the crashing waves. During the summer, it offers gorgeous views of the lake while you eat and drink.

Hoak's is in the news lately because one of their longtime servers is retiring.

Jackie Schultz Caboot is retiring after 45 years. Her final day will be the last day of the patio season at Hoak's.

Hoak's shared the news this past weekend and shared a photo of Jackie with Hollywood actor William Sadler, who is a Buffalo native, with Jackie at Hoak's!

Sadler has acted in numerous hit movies, including The Shawshank Redemption, Iron Man 3, The Mist and Die Hard 2. He went to Orchard Park High School.

It's great that Hoak's is celebrating Jackie in her final weeks of serving at one of Buffalo's most beloved restaurants.
