had a meal on our recent trip to binghamton. the place was lively, but not so loud you couldn't have a coversation easily. the server was friendly and attentive. the menu had a great variety. i had a mango curry dish which was spicy, sweet, and tasty. prices were very reasonable.

Hot good food. Lively atmosphere. Impeccable service. What more could you ask for? Vegan and gluten free available. Particularly recommend the Cajun beans and greens and the smoked mozzarella ravioli.

One is hard pressed to find a "good" eatery in this area..it is dominated by fast food( great for the college crowd).. We were in area, like most parents this time of year,dropping off our college bound young adult.... For us ,it's about a good 4 hour car ride, given "Ideal" traffic conditions .. After several hours of driving, unpacking,... More

This is a very popular restaurant in Binghamton. Went there for lunch. It was quite busy and the dinning area full, so we sat in the bar area. The bar area does not have table service so you have to order your meal at the bar and then they deliver to your table. That was awkward and slow since the... More

Everyone should find themselves at the Lost Dog for lunch, dinner and/or drinks. This restaurant's food offerings are eclectic. There is something on the menu to please everyone. If you are a vegetarian, try the Quinoa Roasted Veg Salad. Try it even if you are a carnivore like me. Your guaranteed to love it. Looking for variety, you'll find the... More

After checking Tripadvisor for a restaurant near our campground we decided on this establishment - and another win for Tripadvisor recommendations. Food was great for all of us - one minor issue I had was my French fries, despite tasting delicious, they were a bit soggy. Should have gotten the Mac and cheese side my daughters wisely chose - dynamite.... More

It is still the best place to eat in Binghamton, but I was disappointed with my last visit. Instead of being seated by the hostess, she just pointed to our table for us to seat ourselves. Everything on the menu has gone up a $1 or $2 again and the sauce on the salmon was reminiscent of a lean cuisine.... More

for lunch. Décor is funky. Menu is salads, burgers, sandwiches with lots of healthy versions. I had the ham and brie on pretzel roll. It was good, a little difficult to eat, but tasty. The chicken sandwich was a hit with the teen in our party. Grilled tuna was excellent and my daughter loved her salad. Portions were big and... More

This place always has live jazz or other entertainment. The food is excellent as are the beverages. Little bit on the high priced side. But worth it.

I wanted to watch the B-Mets and needed a place to eat a late lunch. My friend recommended the place and saw it was #1 on Yelp so I decided to give it a try. I was definitely not disappointed. The kids lunch menu was $4.95 which included an entree and drink. That's better quality food and price than fast... More
