An Ithaca staple

The Pinesburger is iconic as is the find and seek on the menu and Bloody Mary. The burger was just as good as I remember with the thousand island dressing and large fresh french bread roll- the french fries are not hand-cut or anything special so they are the only downside. Great chili! The decor... read more

You've got to have a Pinesburger - freshly ground meat with local bread, cooked to order. Fries are also delicious. Desserts awesome - we had a warm chocolate cookie maple pecan pie, carrot cake. All came well described with helpful, attentive and super fast service. Great value. We were so impressed with one of the local Chardonnays that we took... More

I've been there with a friend, and for some reason the staff was quiet impolite and unhelpful (maybe two men dining together is unusual by their standard?). The pineburgers didn't have the wow effect at all, nothing what you cannot find anywhere. Not going back for sure.

If you like burgers and fries, run don't walk to Glenwood Pines! Meat is ground fresh in house daily, and served on crusty loaves of locally made bread. The onion rings are amazing as well!

Okay, some dishes stand out -- fish, burger, some soups -- but this place is kinda riding on historical goodness.

Nothing fancy about the Pines, but decent food, consistently prepared at a decent price. Good burgers and apps, decent drinks. Not going to make the Michelin Guide, but decent food in a decent place.

Glenwood Pines is a basic, Ithaca staple. The food is diner-like and the service is fast. The décor is basic and you can expect a meal where you won't complain. There is upstairs and down-the-stairs dining. Nothing fancy, but nothing to complain about either. This is an easy, relaxed setting for a good meal and perhaps some laughter and good... More

I have been eating at the Glenwood Pines for over 25 years! It has been good every single time. I can always depend on good food at a reasonable price.

I drive to Ithaca just to eat at the Pines. The Pinesburgur is simply amazing. Always cooked perfectly. The staff is friendly and fun. The view overlooking Cayuga lake is stunning. Nothing fancy, but definitely a place to stop.

For a burger and a beer, the Pines can't be beat. The bacon cheese-burger on french bread, cooked to order, was the best I've ever had. The view over Cayuga Lake is remarkable. Always busy but the service is efficient and tables open up quickly.
