Steaks are awesome, so are the special ribs & kraut. Don't really bother with anything else. This is an iconic place, the bar is a hoot (and a place were we racers regularly hang out). Food is acceptable and not ridiculously priced. Fun, lodgey atmosphere!

If I could rate this place in the negative I would. We had a party of 9 and half of us were there, we were told we could not be seated until our whole party were there. I totally understood so we waited 8 minutes until the other car arrived. As they were walking to the door I told the... More

We spent one night at the lodge. Had dinner here and then breakfast in the morning. The food was wonderful. The service was great and we loved the atmosphere of this 1948 lodge. A real step back in time. Places like this just don't exist anymore. Highly recommended.

We visited on a sunday in September. The restaurant was full but we were seated quickly. We had to wait several minutes before our first coffee & menus were delivered. After ordering we waited, waited and waited. When our waitress returned we asked what was the delay in receiving our food. She stated they had several large parties and did... More

We were traveling through and decided to spends the night here at the lodge and for convenience we ate here as well. Our expectations were not high thinking the food would bd like camping food. We were pleasantly surprised. The salad bar was simple but fresh and tasty. The bread was great and their house salad dressing was fantastic. My... More

While visiting Watkins Glen, my wife and I had dinner at the Seneca Lodge Restaurant, based on the recommendation of a friend. The restaurant in located in a 1948 log cabin-style building complete with stone fireplace, open beam rafters, and wood floor joined with pegs. You could never build such a place today. The bar contains an extensive collection of... More

Every few years get up to Seneca Lodge. Atmosphere and decor still 60's but entertaining. Wait staff Fri night terrible but sat night was great. Two dinners food was good. Before dinner drinks at bar and after dinner drinks were worth the trip. Always a good time and enough nostalgia at the bar to entertain you to last call...

Fantastic food! She gave me 1/2 a duck! The duck was delicious, the rice was not. Angel hair pasta with meat sauce was good too! No room for dessert though!

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
