Very tasty pork medalions and nicely-prepared fish. Really carefully selected wine list. Not cheap, but worth the money. We stayed upstairs in the Inn, so you can't beat the location!

Ordered fried calamari for appetizer, took a while for it come and when it did, it was dark, soaked in oil, mushy on the inside part of the batter. Totally unacceptable even it It's priced for a dollar. The side salads that came with the entree...oh forget it! Dollar for dollar you are better off dining at Ikea.

This is a down-to-earth place with really good food. I had excellent serving of calamari as a starter, and a Mahi-Mahi stake a main course. The food was well prepared: also aesthetically. I can warmly recommend this for relaxed dinner - beats any of the chain-restaturants hands down.

They have a wide selection of craft brews. The food was spectacular and was more than we could eat. We ate here twice and the food was just as good the second time. This was a good value for your money. Yes, it is cheaper to eat at Market Street but the food is not nearly as good and the... More

We were seated in a private booth which are very nice and fun to be in. The dinners were good and I must say hot. The servings were more than ample with plenty to take home. Two of us had the brisket which was very good on a nice soft bun. We did not care for the slaw. Sweet potato... More

When you walk out raving about the place and then realize all you had was one appetizer and 2 salads and were in there 70 minutes! First of all, the rooms are gorgeous! Beautiful wood and brass, very attractive. When we were first seated, they put us at a small table next to a large family dinner - about 20... More

Well located in old Corning downtown, walking distance from the glass museum and nearby hotels, the Grille offers classic pubfare with great steaks and a good selection of beers and wines. We had a great steak supper there in July, with my kids chosing from the children menu. Good food and a specially good wine selection. Good service, no surprises.... More

We went to dinner here after reading other positive TripAdvisor reviews. We had an ok experience. I had a steak, 3 of my companions each ordered the chicken dip appetizer (after reading "it was to die for!") and another ordered a burger. My steak (a strip) was cooked to order as the reviews had mentioned, but had a lot of... More

We we're referred to this restaurant by our hotel and it was spot-on. Good food, good beer menu and friendly service. It's located right on the Main Street in Corning, with lots of neat shops and restaurants. My wife's steak was cooked just right. I had the blackened Mahi-Mahi (which I asked them to go light on the blackening /... More
