Good alternative place in town

Effin is a nice and easy place for a beer and some down-to-earth food. The owner can tell cool stories about the music industry and I like the beers they serve. Altough Corning does not have a Hardrock Cafe you don´t miss it as Effin´s there !

Thanks for visiting us and thank you for your feedback! When we first opened 3 years ago we brought the "big city" concept of super-serving adults only to Corning (16 years and older). It's something that was trending in larger metropolitan areas, and it was met with mixed reviews here in Corning. We had many people tell us they loved... More

My husband and I each had one of their burgers and they were delicious. Nice atmosphere, friendly and attentive server. Prices were good. Would definitely recommend.

Put simply, the food was delicious and while we didn't need anything extra from our server, he was quick, polite, and knew what he was doing so our experience was a close to perfect as possible. Highly recommended.

After running the "wine glass" 1/2 marathon I was lucky to find "Effin" while I waited for my friends who ran the full. My Burger was cooked to perfection and I really enjoyed talking to the owner who always made sure I was happy. Once my friends finished I brought them all back for drinks. The restaurant was fun, well... More

We went here with every intention of having a great time, but in all actuality it was ok. Nothing bad about the atmosphere other than the out right screaming from the downstairs bar when football was on, but that is expected in a bar setting. Overall was just an ok experience.

It's like a BBQ version of the Hard Rock Cafe. Food is similar as well. There's lots to see, the music is great, the food is excellent, prices are typical Applebees-type of cost. Service was average, even on a slow night, but the owner has been there both times I went and was eager to chat and really showed care... More

We stopped in early on a Saturday night. The decor is very kool, loved the rock guitars on the wall. They offer two levels of seating, we chose downstairs. We started off with the fried mac n cheese balls, they were very tasty. We were lucky to be the first customers to try a new dish, we ordered the Smoked... More
