We were happy to find them open and serving at 9pm on a weeknight. A group of 4, we enjoyed the variety of options including quinoa salad, bbq pork, and more. The sweet potato fries are good! However the waitress who seated and served us was incredibly rude including a comment "yeah, I was talking to you" when we were... More

We stopped in for dinner our first night in Watkin's Glen. I ordered the wings and they were fantastic. 2 of the people I was with ordered salads and they said they didn't taste very fresh and the lettuce was wilted. Good beer and good service.

Stopped in for a late lunch after hiking the gorge. Sandwiches were great and well presented. Vegeterian/Vegan options were nice. A real gem of a find!

Had a lovely lunch. I chose the seafood sandwich with dill sauce and a side of sweet potato fries. My friends picked a chicken salad with goat cheese and strawberries and a burger with a side of onion straw and fresh-cut fries. Everything was very good. The service was very attentive. Nice atmosphere and will definitely go back.

Good eats and good brews from Roosterfish Brewing. Above average lunch fare. Nice sized portions. No room for dessert. Staff was awesome.

Our kids liked the kids menu. The waiter was very accommodating with our son's shrimp/lobster allergy. My only negative thing was they were out of several items and I would have liked to been told about them when we sat down.

We are lunch at the bar in the pub. Atmosphere was great. Open windows. People nice. Bartender was very helpful. I had the seafood sandwich. It was excellent. I would recommend trying it. This pub is right down the street from the state park in the town. I would highly recommend trying this place out. One of our favorites on... More

We ate here the first night we were in Watkins Glen and looking back I think its one of the better dining options in the area (we were very disappointed in dining overall in the area). We had the onion soup, salads, burgers, fries...all decent...nothing great/horrible.

We thought we were going to like it when we walked in. Waitress very good. But, the food ended up leaving a bad taste. We had Gouda Crab dip appetizer - first bites were good and then it seemed just OK. Kale salad was boring, and the soup was a little strange. I am a foodie and love to cook... More
