On vacation we picked this spot for the view. We ate early and did notice that everyone's food that came out later was much better than ours. My hubby got the prime rib and it was the worst one I have ever tasted. My food was like bad dinner food. The wine list is small. The beer list is ok.... More

This restaurant is lively, fun, historical and has great views of the water front.. So why three stars? The food. It is very much like "casual dinning" chains, overloaded w/ cheese and grease. Many people love this type of food, but they should offer at least one dish that is sauteed or vegetarian w/out the cheese. The Porto Bello Mushroom... More

Stopped in here for lunch before taking boat cruise on Seneca Lake. Had wanted to do a lunch cruise but didn't get there on time but this made me feel as though I missed nothing. We arrived the same time as a very large (busload?) group. We seated ourselves and they took our order first since there were only three... More

Interestingly enough, we had a hard time finding a restaurant in Watkins Glen that didn't have a 20-30 minute wait at 2:30pm. Walked to the water and our prayers were answered. We had excellent seats by a window and could view the lake, our waitress was on top of everything and the food was good. Nice afternoon and we'd definitely... More

Wait time was an hour on a Saturday night. We enjoyed drinks from the bar and we enjoyed them outside near the harbor while we waited. Our server and the bartenders were very nice but the hostess would just disappear for 15 minutes at a time creating a lot of confused customers waiting to be seated. Lots of good vegetarian... More

Ended up eating later than usual, arrived without reservations about 8:00pm on a busy Sunday evening. We were seated promptly. Ordered two glasses of wine which were brought right away. The garlic bread was delicious, served warm and melted in our mouths. So good, we ordered another loaf. Dinner salads were fresh and crisp. Entrees both delicious. My husband chose... More

This restaurant was right next door to the hotel, so we had an easy walk to get there on our first night and we did not feel like driving any longer. It was an excellent choice. They have an excellent menu and the food was wonderful. We had a wonderful view of the harbor. There were four of us, no... More

Service was great and our dinners were excellent - especially those of us who had the ribs - no sauce even needed! We dined after dark so we didn't get to enjoy the view of the marina but the restaurant was very nice.

We planned a trip to Watkins Glen, NY to enjoy a day of hiking in the State Park. Once our adventure was complete and our tummies were rumbling we wanted lunch near beautiful Seneca Lake. The kind hostess took our name and requested we return in 30 min. We strolled the stunning area around the restaurant until our table was... More
