The food was fine but way overpriced especially when served in baskets and paper cups. With tip we paid over 70 dollars for 2 soups, 3 sandwiches and 3 fountain beverages.

It probably seemed like a good idea - serve breakfast during the Friday-Monday Induction Weekend in Cooperstown? Great for them, not so good for the poor customers who decided to stop in. We saw their sign on the sidewalk that was offering breakfast and gave it a try. It wasn't very crowded and we had the choice of sitting inside... More

We had lunch at Pioneer Patio on Hall of Fame weekend. Despite being very busy, the food was excellent and the staff was very patient and friendly. The owner chatted with us about the town and the events during the year and was very knowledgable. He also expedited getting us a table which was most welcome after a long morning... More

We were just there on Hall of Fame Induction weekend and we had a late afternoon lunch there. The menu was limited for HOF weekend but was sufficient. We had mostly sandwiches and bratwurst. Everyone in our party was very pleased. Our server, who I can't remember her name, was fabulous. Very good service on a very busy weekend.

Mobbed during Hall of fame weekend but a nice spot to go other times of the year. They have it all including efficient and pateient wait staff. The grill cheese and burgers appear to be the top sellers along with fries and malts. Good local feeling here.

While the food is good, the prices are quite high. We had burgers and sodas and it was $65! I was shocked at the high prices for burger....

After walking around all day, we found this quaint place down he side alley. The waitresses here are very friendly. The food came out quick, and was delicious. My son said the burger melted on his mouth- and he ate the WHOLE thing! I had the best Talapia sandwich I have ever had! Overall I love this place!

I took my family back to this restaurant while visiting the area from out of state, telling them rave reviews about the great food I had always had here in the past when I lived locally. Well, that good food was definitely the past. We took our seats out in the loud sunny outdoor patio area of the dark caverned... More

We ordered burgers and sandwiches so nothing fancy but the food was tasty, hot and pretty fast. We were able to get back to the museum real quick.
