Friday night in September was told one hour wait at 730 for dinner. For one person. Ouch. Did not wait. Saturday night had nice family dinner, great service. Enjoyed sesame encrusted tuna, fish tacos. Good choices ranging 12-24 dollars. Just don't expect to walk in and sit down at the bar and eat. They were not serving food at the... More

We were only in town for the night & didn't hear any good options for dinner except here & another place. This place has great onion soup!! I had the prime rib with baked potato & veg. It was average at best. The drinks are over priced too. It was an hour wait & I can't see why. The lakes... More

We sat outside on the gorgeous patio that overlooks a glimmering lake, manicured golf course, and hotel grounds. The tables all have umbrellas for shade. My mother and I both ordered the blackened salmon salad and it was delicious! The staff was very friendly and accepting of my one-year-old and two-year-old daughters who loved chasing the squirrels on the lawn... More

We usually look forward to our visits to Cooperstown and the Hawkeye. This year we were sorely disappointed. The wait staff appeared to be running aimlessly front to back, side to side. We waited about 20 minutes for someone to give us water and still no one to take an order. The menu, which used to be fantastic, is now... More

This is a wonderful restaurant. Our motel managers recommended this for dinner, and we are so glad that they did. The Hawkeye Bar and Grill is located in the luxurious Otesaga Resort hotel. Everything is first-class, but the prices are very affordable. We ate outside on the patio where the view of the lake and the hotel's luxury golf couse... More

Having dined at the Hawkeye Grill several times, and usually being pleased with the quality of food and services. It was quite surprising to pay $181.53 for lunch for four, and to have our most un-enjoyable experience there to date. The Fish Tacos were runny and contained only tiny pieces of actual fish. The server was completely inattentive to the... More

Nicely decorated hotel restaurant. Smallish menu, but something for everyone. Good French Onion soup, burgers, bbq ribs, and fish tacos. Nice oyster app and heirloom tomato salad. Ask for Cherie or Brian as your server. Pleasant, professional and attentive.

If you're looking for casual dinning with one of the best views of the lake while in Cooperstown, this is it! Nice menu, ample wine list and very friendly staff in the beautiful historic Otesaga Hotel should make this a must see while in Cooperstown. Make sure to wander through the hotel while there.

I wasn't particularly impressed with the fare at the restaurant, though the crab & spinach dip was really excellent, the steak was too well-done for me and uninspired in its presentation and sides. Asparagus was overcooked. My son very much enjoyed his burger (from the adult menu) and my younger son really wasn't impressed with the kids' menu at all.... More
