I stay at the Seneca Lodge; on average; 40+ days a year during race season. The bar is a piece of American Auto Racing history and you could spend all night just drinking and looking at all of the racing memorabilia on the walls and ceilings.

We were doing the beer trail around the lakes and stopped in. The locals were so nice and inviting and the space was rustic like an old scout cabin.

The food and service were great! I had the London broil which had excellent flavor. My wife had the filet which she also enjoyed.

As a local, we look forward to certain restaurants opening for the season. The Seneca Lodge is no exception. We always have a good meal there, the wait staff is attentive and the casual dining feel of it is perfect with our kids. The salad bar has a good choice for a small salad, and bread. There are usually several... More

We ate the Seneca Lodge. It was very convenient especially camping at WGSP. The food was very good. I enjoyed the salad bar and fresh bread/muffins.

Love the prime rib or the ribs on Saturday night. They also have a great salad bar.. Don't go on a race weekend however as the place will be packed with race car drivers.

We didn't expect much from a cabin motel restaurant and were pleasantly surprised. Food was excellent and plentiful with included salad bar. Service was friendly and helpful. The atmosphere is old school summer camp lodge and the attached bar is full of historic racing and archery paraphernalia. Try the house beers as they are excellent. Very casual.

We have been before but wanted to show this kitschy restaurant to our friends. They thought it was a bit pricey for a lodge restaurant but were just fine with it. I ordered the lamb kabobs; I remembered how good they were last time and they didn't disappoint! You serve your own salad; I ordered the "today's special" additional soup... More

Loved the raisin French toast! My husband just had eggs and toast, but liked them. New York State maple syrup was a $1 extra, but was worth it to me. We ate dinner in town, but did visit the bar in the evening. The atmosphere is great - very retro and certainly car-centric. We enjoyed it and the food was... More
