Known as the "Pines" this place is on the west side of Lake Cayuga with a great waterfront view. Large bar with separate room for diners decorated in, you guessed it, pine motif. Burgers are the feature here, though other dishes are available. The famed Pinesburger is served on a submarine roll. It is worthy of its reputation. The corn... More

Can't beat the Pines burger or the Ahi Tuna steak. Great prices and friendly staff. Fun place. Nothing fancy but just good.

Great diner type food..corn chowder a must, daily specials and super, stuffed baked potatoes. Casual cozy atmosphere, a few arcade games, fireplace, pool table and plenty of parking. Friendly staff and great views of Cayuga lake!

We went with local friends, and it was a really nice atmosphere. Good food (burgers were juicy, fries were great), and laid back atmosphere. Good place for lunch.

Some friends who grew up locally took us to this restaurant for lunch. A lot of selections on the menu. We three couples and we all enjoyed our meals. I had the haddock sandwich. Excellent onion rings. They serve Ithaca beer.

My wife and I enjoyed this cafe one evening while visiting the region. I had their "famous" burger. She had fried fish. Both were well prepared and tasty. I'd certainly eat there again if the occasion arose.

Great spot for burgers--Friday fish fry--good sandwiches--reasonably priced. Plenty of seating--atmosphere ok but nothing romantic except the pines burger!
