This restaurant has a different menu that struck just the right tone with me. All natural ingredients and locally brewed beer. I had the vegetable lasagna which actually came out looking more like a portabella melt but was delicious! My husband ordered the three cheese pizza.

Love Rooster Fish brews - and they have some of the best food in Watkins Glen. If you can - sit at one of the tables in the front when the windows are open! Love their burgers! Love their beer!

We started with the mussels and they were ok. My daughter & I shared the bacon cheeseburger. It was cooked perfect, but lacked flavor and size. I've eaten better tasting burgers from fast food places. One of our friends had the steak tacos and said they were bland, no flavor. I wouldn't go back here, there are other places to... More

We like to do wine tours upon occasion around Lake Seneca. we start on the west side and work our way south to the Glen. Rooster Fish is a great midway spot to grab some grub and a real beer to reset your palette before venturing back north on the east side of the lake. Enjoyed lunch and laughs!

My daughter and I were staying the weekend in Watkins Glen, my first trip, her second. She had been at the Wildflower before and thought it was good. We ordered the broccoli cheddar soup, very creamy and delicious. The one- third pound burger was made from organic beef and was very tasty. What a great and filling meal.
