Love this place. The restaurant looks like it's still in the 60's. My husband and I both had the prime rib. It was very good and reasonably priced. Staff was very friendly. We made friends with a couple from Washington State and had a pleasant dinner with them. We will come back again. Also, check out the bar. You have... More

Our children look forward to the LODGE restaurant every year when we come for the NASCAR race to Watkins Glen. The food is great...plenty of room on the table for kids and their "stuff". Portions are good. Salad bar ok. Bar itself is fun to go into (pass thru to use the rest room) with all the memorabilia on the... More

Stopped here for beers while in the area. They have great microbrews, huge outdoor deck with live music, and fast service even though they were very busy on a Sunday afternoon. Great quaint bar in a nice area. Definitely recommended to stop and check out.

Came highly recommended from our hosts at the B&B, and was very good. Food was fresh, portions large, and good atmosphere.

Family of four (2 kids under 10) had dinner and it cost almost $80 for Applebee's quality food! Their beer was very good, but it was so overpriced. Service was fine. Salad bar was ok, but the presentation was like being at a family picnic, not a restaurant. Kids meals were fine. calamari appetizer portion was small. Fried chicken dinner... More

Wood log structure in a beautiful setting is home of Seneca Lake Lodge Restaurant. After seeing the reviews in TripAdvisor, I decided to try Seneca Lodge Restaurant for breakfast and wasn't disappointed. A simple menu offering approximately 10 of the standard breakfast menu items is served by the friendly and responsive wait staff. I had pancakes and bacon which were... More

My boyfriend and I camped in the state park for the weekend and decided we would rather get breakfast out than fuss with making it in the campground. We hardly have to leave the park and we ended up at the Seneca Lodge. Huge dining room with not many people there but the food and service were great. We both... More

Fun place to explore and eat a fairly good meal. The bar is a place to not only drink but you must check out all the old outdoor stuff in the room.

The lodge is a terrific place to eat. My husband always looks forward to the lobster tails one night and a real strip steak the second night. They have a terrific salad bar and the help is very accommodating. We actually filled up on the salad bar and had to take most of our dinner with us. When the place... More

We stayed at the lodge for three nights and decided one night to have a special meal. We all ordered the NY strip which was a little overcooked but was very tasty nonetheless. The cut was quite large and I found it a little hard to eat all of it......but,I did. A little pricey but that was expected given the... More
