The food here is nicely served with organic options, a great organic, home grown salad bar and a real character with a handle bar behind the bar. The food is good, solid American fare. My only reservation is that little is home made and... More

Very long wait. Service could be better. Food average food prices above average. Probably because it's located at state park entrance.

Good food, good service. Not fond of the Silver Dollars and $2 bills given as change at the bar...BUT... the drinks are good! This is an old style lodge with lots of character and charm. Very busy during the summer during tourist season and NASCAR racing at the Watkins Glen Track!

Every year when we are vacationing in the area, a cocktail in the tavern and dinner here is a must. The place is an old style lodge with tons of charm and character. We absolutely love it! The food is excellent and the salad bar is the best! If you like blue cheese dressing, there's none better!

This place has the BEST London broil I have ever had! The salad bar is amazing and the servers are very skilled and good at what they do. A must visit if they are open while you are in town.

The atmosphere is very much classic old time road racing mixed in very well with modern day NASCAR. The food and drinks are abundant. What a great place to end a great day at!

OK, first of all, the food was fine. The 2 guys had the London broil. I had alfredo pasta with broccoli and my friend had pasta with marinara. All was good and the servings were HUGE!! There is a small salad bar with several bread choices on it. The salad selection was very slim (lettuce, onions, cucumbers, bell peppers). The... More
