Pinesburger justly famous

It seems I was the only person in Tompkins County who had not eaten at Glenwood Pines. I chose the highly touted Pinesburger and was happy that I had. A truly good burger is hard to find but this one lives up to its reputation. The beef in the Pineburger has real flavor and is complemented but not... read more

This place has some of the best burgers in central new york(or anywhere). They grind their own beef on site, which is probably why the burgers taste so fresh, juicy, and delicious. They have a pretty extensive menu, and I have tried a few other things there and was pleased with everything I tried, such as the fish fry and... More

The trip is worth it just for the burgers on Italian style buns. Whatever you like to have with your burger..be it beer, root beer or milk, they have it. Quaint backroom to sit and look at the lake and enjoy your burger and fries. They have other food that is god too. We are still craving a return though,... More

Took a client to lunch, and he picked this lovely roadside restaurant with a stunning overlook view of the lake. Waitress was very friendly and helpful in making a great selection of the house specialty burger. Cooked perfectly and the fries were excellent (hot, crispy, fresh). Great place to socialize.

Driving through the countryside one wonders what this hotel is doing here? It has been here almost a hundred years, and folks are still loving it, I go for the burgers, well prepared and friendly, competent service in a relaxed comfortable setting, especially if outside.

Their food is really good, especially their homemade soups, the Pinesburger, and good seafood. Family run - eat where the locals go.

The type of small diner you remember from your childhood (and they're good memories), the Glenwood doesn't disappoint. The menu is varied American dishes with good sized portions and the food is very good. The price is reasonable and it's the perfect place for a casual meal during a hectic day.

We were on a bus ride and had reservations. The restaurant overlooks the lake and the view was lovely. Our food was fresh and tasty! The wait staff is very efficient. We were pleasantly surprised and would recommend Glenwood Pines to everyone!

The Pinesburger is still wonderful in itself; however the soups are also very good. The variety of sandwiches should have something for everyone. A seat with a lake view makes the whole experience alot of fun. Go early for lunch.

We've been to the Glenwood Pines a number of times for dinner after being turned on to it by a local who said it's a good place for a relaxed meal. She was right! We enjoy the burgers and the good beers on tap
