Lunch was not worth the expensive price

We had lunch here today and we were very disappointed. My tuna wrap was decent, the German potato salad ok, but the prices for lunch were outrageous. It is definitely a tourist trap. The food was fine but there are so many other choices in town, I would never recommend this place,

My family found this cute restaurant after touring the Hall of Fame. They had indoor and outdoor seating. They had something on the menu for everyone!! The staff was friendly and very attentive and the food was delicious!!! I highly recommend this restaurant for anyone looking for a quick bite to eat!

We found this place tucked behind an alley and so glad we did! The knockwurst was delicious, but the relish was a tad bit spicy for my taste. Excellent service and great food!

We were wandering town and found this place near the Hall of Fame. They were very attentive, staff was great. The Bison burger was the best burger! My husband is on this kick of eating gluten free, the options they had were amazing! My daughter eats veggies only- she loved the veggie burger. I just wished they had sweet potato... More

It is in a great location, just behind Doubleday Field. We went for lunch, great sanwich selections loaded with good stuff, delicious potato salad and good choices of beers, for the grownups and friendly staff. It's a win win situation, cannot go wrong. For dessert we went inside for their ice cream: the mid size was the biggest you will... More

Fourth time visiting over the years. Same owners we remembered from before. While we only had a couple of beers, it was their small town warmth that made an ordinary stop for a brief rest so great. I'm not an Ommegang beer guy, but they did have Cooperstown Brewing Old Slugger on tap. That was tasty.

The food was very good. Great hamburgers and a good selection of beers. The service was good. We really enjoyed our lunch there. Just a short walk from the Hall of Fame

We went here after touring the HOF at the recommendation of the staff at the Landmark Inn. It is a great place to get a good, quick and inexpensive lunch. There are seats both indoors and outside. We had a range of burgers and paninis as well as salads and all were enjoyable.

As we wandered around Cooperstown, we found the Pioneer Patio Restaurant. The summer evening was pleasant and we ate on the patio instead of inside. Our waitress was the daughter of the owner and she was just delightful. I had the corn and shrimp chowder with a small salad and my husband ordered the schnitzel; we shared apple strudel with...

Recently visited Cooperstown, NY and Baseball Hall of Fame and wanted to take in a local restaurant and we picked The Pioneer Patio Restaurant. We both picked more of their German food and were not disappointed in what we picked. The service was great and for being there in the off-season the prices are not to bad. Friendly folks along...
