Nice lunch, great local beer selection.

We traveled to rooster fish to take a Brea from the wine tours hearing they brewed their own beer and served food. The food was good but not overly outstanding. It hit the spot. The beer was great and some of the best in the area. If you're looking to break out from wine for a spell I recommend... read more

My son and I stopped in for a late lunch on a Wednesday afternoon. The server was sweet and polite. The food was tasty and we surely didn't wait long. We liked the atmosphere and the place was cozy. Great menu!

My husband and I went her with our daughter and son in law. We ordered and "split" the meals so we could try more than one dish. Everything was very good! Plus we all got a different craft beer to try.

10 of us had lunch on our way through Watkins Glen & every one of us loved our food. The burgers were delicious, as was the shrimp PO boy, the wraps & soups. Our server was friendly & our order came out quickly. Everything about this meal was excellent.

Went for a late lunch and it wasn't to busy. Our server was very friendly and very helpful answering our questions about the menu. I had the Yankee Pulled Pork, so many flavors in one sandwich! It was very tasty! My Dad and Sister also upgraded their sides to Sweet Potato Fries, and they were not disappointed. Great place to... More

I just went last month on business, stopped in and had a great mushroom soup. We ordered light but they did not rush us. The food was excellent. I went again this week, had one of their crafted beers the cocoa porter. It was excellent. The barmaid Kiiera suggested the Thai Pumpkin soup which sounded too trendy and gross. But... More

Went to dinner while staying at the Watkins Glen Harbor Hotel. The Wildflower prides itself on serving local, organic and grass fes beef. Reasonable price and food was a good size portion. Great presentation (see pics), amazing taste. Friendly staff. Highly recommended
