Lovely spot

We dined here on a Saturday evening with two other couples. While the wait staff admitted to being new they were so sweet we didn't really mind. The food was huge portions so bring your appetite.

Beautiful old bar. Food was good. Prices very respectable. The room was dark but it felt cozy. Nice to look out over the lake.

We celebrated my dad's 85th birthday here and it really was a great night. From the moment my wife called to inquire about a reservation, the staff was friendly and accommodating. We were 8 people, aged 8-85 and we all had a great meal. The food was delicious. The service was perfect. They allowed us to bring our own cake... More

The Hawkeye Grill at the Otesaga Hotel is reliably good. The service is attentive. The prices are reasonable and the quality of food is consistent. When the weather permits, the patio with a view of Otsego Lake is sublime.

We took a drive to Cooperstown and decided to stop in the Otesaga Hotel for lunch. the hotel was very quiet; but the Hawkeye Bar and Grill was open...On a cold wet day, it had just the warmth in not only décor; but food and service. The menu caters to comfort food; but the choices are pretty expansive. I had... More

I've been to the Hawkeye before. Last year they had a very knowledgeable manager who made me feel totally safe about eating there. He's no longer there. The new manager has no idea. They made me sick, not what you want when you are travelling. If there wasn't a really good health food store a few minutes away it would... More

If you're familiar with upstate - you KNOW that spring is longed for far before it arrives .... that being said; this week on one of the first beautiful days - I got to experience the Hawkeye and it's stunning firepit!!!

What a wonderful place to spend a holiday! Warm, rich atmosphere and delicious food delivered to your table by a great staff. First time empty-nesters, my husband and I didn't want to cook a Thanksgiving meal for two. I think we've embarked on a new annual tradition!

Atmosphere, menu, staff… Perfect Perfect Perfect - not to mention the price! We had to eat here twice in our three day stay. Once for an evening dinner, perfect. Then had to come back for lunch before leaving cooperstown, the patio was far to inviting to not oblige :) If we are ever back in the area, this will be... More
