We joined some friends the other night for dinner and enjoyed a window view of the frozen lake. Our dinners were promptly timed and served, well presented and plentiful. Normally this size meal would prompt a doggy bag, but we decided against dessert instead. Four of our party ordered the evening special Prime Rib and all enjoyed the meal. My... More

My wife and I enjoyed a nice dinner at the Hawkeye on our trip to Cooperstown. We arrived about 5:45 pm on a Saturday night. We did not have reservations but they kindly accommodated us. If you are there in April to October, you would probably need reservations on a Saturday night. My wife ordered the Vegetarian Shepherd's Pie. She... More

Had a nice dinner at Hawkeye. Country club like atmosphere, great service, and good food. Nothing special or terribly imaginable but good food and good value. Saturday night Prime Rib and NY strip steak both done well. Open face mushroom ravioli stater had great flavor but the open ravioli concept doesn't work. Service was outstanding. Older adult crowd. Short walk... More

My husband and I have eaten here several times a year for lunch and dinner and we have never been disappointed. We bring our friends and our family members and they have always had great meal. We especially love the prime rib on saturdays, the seafood nights, the international nights, the cooking school, the service, the setting, the wine menu....

I recently spent a week in Cooperstown. During my visit I had dinner at the Hawkeye twice - the first on a Tuesday was amazing. The food was excellent - the Salmon Salad was one of the best made dishes I had had on my recent travels. Then I had the steak - It was very good- the puree were... More

There is nothing nicer than to sit out on the deck at the Hawkeye in the early evening, sip a good drink, and look out over Otsego Lake. EXCEPT, when you sit around the open round fireplace bar and have that same drink. Not withstanding, it has some of the best food in the area, the ambiance is second to... More

Dinner special of Lobster, Shrimp and Cod was excellent and great value. Drinks were great, my wife did not have to describe what a Vodka Gimlet "Up" meant! Service very good, too. Go here!

Have eaten here several times.the dining area is dark and in great need of updating.the staff ate friendly but service is slow.The hamburger meal is kept under a heat lamp the heats your pickle and your lettuce which makes it very unappealing.Food is mediocre and definetly not worth the money.

A little pricey, but food and service are excellent. On a cold winter night, ask for a table by the fire in the bar. It is great atmosphere. Family friendly too.

The food is very good to excellent at the Hawkeye Bar and Grill. We have taken friends there during the summer, but the winter weekend specials are great because the price is excellent and the food is very well-prepared and is a good portion size. Nowadays, if you expect to get good food, the portions are small. The restaurant has... More
