Good Hamburgers: best in town according to our B&B hosts, and we weren't disappointed Atmosphere: good enough to come more than once on this vacation. We were included in... More

On a recent excursion in Watkins Glen State Park, we emerged from the gorge famished. I had read another review suggesting that one will find many Watkins Glen local citizens at Maria's Tavern for some of the best food in town. We agree. Excellent, perfectly prepared and fully-topped burgers fit for folks with appetites. The steak fries my husband and... More

Maria's is the type of small, local place that a tourist might simply drive past, but the locals highly recommend -- the reason: great food, reasonably priced, and friendly staff. We stopped in looking for a place to catch some March Madness basketball with a few beers and good wings -- we found a hidden gem! The burgers are terrific... More

Maria's Tavern is a good place to chat with friends, enjoy good food and meet locals - we frequent this Tavern about two times a month to share the great Chicken Wings. Me not being a Wings fan, am praising the Burgers. There is a good selection of beer on tap.

We stumbled in here to watch a game and were immediately welcomed by the regulars. It's a small place, but didn't smell like a dive or have a sticky floor, drinks were affordable, and there were several TVs (no sound though).

There is no better place in NYState to get Buffalo Style Wings - hands down, this is the place to go if you're a wing nut! :-) A small, sports bar type place with TVs in every corner - great local joint with great people and great food.
