Smoke House for sure

The wait staff was great, the food was average. The choices were varied yet all tasted the same, smokey! From the salad to the wings, to the drinks, everything had a overwhelmingly smoked taste. I was not impressed.

I've only eaten here twice. Both times it was less than great. Nothing to rave about. And the tables, dishes, silverware, etc. were not clean. Not a fan.

We visited the restaurant 30 minutes before their kitchen closed but were served promptly and enjoyed interacting with the waitress. I had one of their special turkey/brisket clubs and it was excellent. My wife especially enjoyed their onion rings.

Great place to unwind after a difficult day. Beers on tap, great brisket beef, welcoming staff. Personally I would have liked the meat and beans hotter, and served on hot plates, but not a big deal - would go back again.

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
