We thoroughly enjoyed our meal here. We took my 90 year old mom, who can be a bit picky and hard to please. She and my daughter had the fresh haddock fish fry. It was excellent, flakey and the batter was light, not greasy at all. Nice selection of sides with meal. We will definitely go back; and we live... More

This family restaurant on Cayuga lake is an institution , friendly bar with pool table and bowling run for the kids. You can,t beat their fish fry ! It,s always fresh and cooked just right, not over -cooked like so many. The coleslaw is always my favorite but they won,t give out the recipe.

This is a casual, pub-type place. Kind of Road-side Tavern atmosphere. I like going off times- not in the middle of regular dinner rush. Why does everyone want to eat at 7:00? The fish fry is crisp and juicy. Not greasy or heavy. I prefer onion rings or fried cauliflower to french fries. Or homemade slaw or potato salad. The... More

This restaurant was recommended by our local host. When we entered the door it was crowded and blocked by men drinking beer and playing pool. We worked out way through to where the bar area opened to the dining room. The noise level carried in there. The few tables that were actually by windows would not have had views for... More

What a wasted potential of great view. This place is located in the hill side in front of the lake but due to poor design u don't get any view. And the food is wasted potential too.

The Pines burgers are well known in the Ithaca area, and for good reason, they are very good and cooked to order (to include bloody and rare). The broccoli bites and corn bites are also fantastic - you must try them. Prices are excellent and there is a beautiful view of Cayuga Lake.

Been here dozens of times. Consistent, quality meals and prompt pleasant service at reasonable prices! Comfortable and clean. Burgers and fish sandwiches are great, as are drinks and dinner. Relaxed casual atmosphere.

Burgers are delicious. But they are a little small. They also don't include fries. Ordered the Onion Rings. Excellent. But they don't give you many. Funky location. I would go back. But I would eat before I go.
