I got the hot wing dip and my friend and I shared it. The dip was hot, cheesy, and delicious. We ordered a couple beers on tap and enjoyed a nice atmosphere with friendly service. Our waitress was quick and took care of us.

We had a large group & made reservations based on the online menu. When we got there the prices had all increased by $3 or $4. When we complained, they said oh, sorry. We didn't update the web. The food was good, but we had a bad taste in our mouths from this trickery.

Wonderful restaurant - great atmosphere (glass making decor and stained glass windows and colored glass items throughout). Our water was courtesy, kind, provided quick service, and was overall delightful (Thank you Ross!). We both had steak - the best steak's we have ever had! Well seasoned, cooked to perfection, melt in your mouth steak. Served with seasoned/grilled tomato wedge, garlic... More

We stopped at the bar prior to sitting for dinner. It is a beautiful bar that you would feel comfortable eating at, as well as enjoying a beer! The hostess seated us after enjoying a cocktail at the bar but forgot to let the waitress know that we'd been seated at her table. The minute she found out, she buzzed... More

While traveling on business through the area on the way to Williamsport, PA my associate and I took a detour into Corning, NY looking for a place to have lunch and stumbled upon Gaffer. The atmosphere was warm and welcoming and the service was perfect. The loaded potato soup was excellent but I found the Ruben a bit tough and... More

Wait staff was on top of things and very good. The menu has a fair amount of choices - steaks seem a bit expensive, though. I had the sashimi and calamari - the sashimi was much better than I expected, calamari was better than average. One of our group had a Caesar salad that was beyond dismal for $11. It... More

The three times we have stayed at the Inn at Gaffer Grille, we have also dined at the Gaffer Grille and Taproom. My husband definitely likes it better than I do, and I suppose this is because I am usually trying to follow a diet such as Weight Watchers. Thus, I try to stay away from red meat and pasta,...

On a recent visit to Corning we went with family members to the Gaffer for dinner & we certainly were not disappointed. Food was varied and very tasty & beers/wine good too! Our waitress was really attentive and friendly and I think she played an important role in our very positive experience. I would definitely recommend this restaurant to people... More

We stopped in for lunch on our way to the Corning Glass Museum. We were seated at once and our orders taken promptly. Our food arrived shortly after and was good. Our server was very busy, but was quite attentive.

I have been here many times for a business lunch. Food is always good but nothing real special. Room are quiet and suitable for business conversations. Prices are reasonable. Parking can be hard.
