A decent value for food and a decent selection of beer. The deck has a nice view and is within site of the Hall of Fame.

Walked in to zero greeting at the hostess desk. When ready to seat us the hostess asked us, "Are you ready?" We are standing at the hostess desk, I suspect so. Took 10 ,minutes for the waitress to come over for a drink order. We didn't dare let her go without the food order. Other table experienced the same thing... More

The food was good (except broccoli was served cold) and there was a nice variety on the menu-something for everyone. The wait staff was very pleasant and the price was fair.

Waited almost an hour for the worst meal my family have ever had. Even my teenage sons who eat anything left their meals on their plates. Burgers were charred hockey pucks and buns were stale. Bathrooms were filthy. Dirty mops and cleaning supplies were in plain view. Wish they used them and then put them away. Will never go back.

The service was good, but it was very crowded and I never tried to eat in a louder place. I guess I should expect that since it is a bar, too.. but it was not a calm relaxing meal

Great beer selection, friendly service, and awesome (small) outdoor section. Appreciate building the deck around an old tree! Watch out for the travelling Little League teams - they'll eat up the specials of the day.

The food was served hot and tasty. It was a nice lunch break from the Baseball Hall of Fame which we went back to afterward. Not fancy but fun.

We stopped in for lunch and the food was good. We weren't able to sit outside on the deck so we sat at an upstairs table by the bar. The lobster bisque was outstanding ! ! ! We ordered a sandwich with side salad and side order of dark and tan onion rings (also outstanding ! !) with our meals... More

We enjoyed sitting outdoors on the upper deck soaking in the lovely weather. The servers are all friendly. The burgers are great.

We ate here for lunch during our Dreams Park week. It's just off the main drag in a back alley (hey I get it) in Cooperstown. Parking can be a bit adventurous in town. The place looks like a dive from the street (that's not a shot). It looks nicer inside than I expected. We got an appetizer of loaded... More
