Just by chance, we went to the Tally Ho restaurant one evening. We ended up spending the next three evenings there also. It was that good. In addition to their regular menu, they have a different dinner buffet each night. Our first visit, we chose the buffet, which was Eastern European foods and included dessert. Everything was terrific. And priced very reasonably. The second evening we ordered from the menu. Their specialty is lamb. It was perfectly cooked and delicious. The third visit, we picked from an incredible Italian buffet. The fourth visit we selected the fish fry buffet. Again, everything was great.
In addition to the great food, the service was very special. Our server, Linda, was very friendly and fun to talk with.
We heartily recommend Tally Ho restaurant.

Straight-up home cooking. You'll get seated if you're early (at 5p) or a single/couple. It'll be a wait otherwise as seating is limited for larger groups.

At Chautauqua, on the grounds, Tally Ho is indispensable. It is a small family-run (but busy) restaurant in an old house (yes, it's Chautauqua), with lots on offer. Our favorite way to dine is to go through their buffet offerings, which you can purchase by the pound, and then take it back to our balcony or to a bench on the plate. Food is excellent, with many choices.

The Tally Ho restaurant is incredible: great food at very reasonable prices. Finding an affordable place to dine on the Chautauqua Institution grounds is difficult, but to find one featuring incredible dishes, well that's a real find and that's the Tally Ho. They offer a buffet on most Fridays as well as a full menu. The featured items on the buffet vary, but typically always have their signature beef roast. All the buffet items are excellent and not what you expect at a buffet. Off the menu, lamb is often featured.

I understand that there are varied accommodations at this hotel..from 'antique' to modern. Three of us stayed in three antique rooms, which each having its quirks. Two had a veranda and two had very small bathrooms. The staff (Stephanie and Linda) went above and beyond, even running to the local Walmart in the middle of the night to get us coffee pots, that were promised as part of the reservation. All rooms had refrig and microwave and a chair to sit in. Beds were comfortable. The location on the Institute grounds couldn't be beat.
When checking out, I first learned that there were more modern accommodations...I can't speak to those.
