Good food, service, and beer

As you look at reviews for restaurants in Watkins Glen, you quickly realize this is not a foodie destination. We were very pleased, though, with our experience at the Wildflower. The food was good pub food, the service was very good, and the brew pub beers were excellent. If I lived here, this... read more

A few people told us that we should try the Wildflower Cafe/Crooked Rooster when we came to Watkins Glen. When we got there it was somewhat busy. The young man came over and said it will be about 10-15 minutes. A lot of people left after their meals were over, and we still did not have a table. The young... More

Had a great lunch in between winery visits. The service is great and food delicious. I would recommend it when you visit the Seneca lake area.

My husband and I enjoyed a pizza with roasted peaches, prosciutto, and carmelized onions. It was quite a tasty appetizer. The shrimp po boy and fish tacos were ok/ marginal. The sandwich bread for the po boy was blah but the shrimp had good flavor. The fish in the tacos was a bit fishy; a lot of potential however. The... More

Everyone in our group seemed to love their dinner choice. I had the black bean burger & it was great!

These two restaurants are connected through the same kitchen and chef. The menu is wonderful and the food is equally wonderful! We had the special Tuna salad on a croissant with sweet potato fries (best I have EVER tasted). Everything was wonderful. The service was also great. We'll be going back to try their specialty burgers which everyone is raving... More

Service was fantastic, great beer and the food was the best I had while in Watkins Glen. When I come back to the area, I will definitely eat here again!

We went for breakfast after an early morning hike the Watkins Glen gorge. This place was busy - I think they must have a reputation for great food. The cappuccino and pastries were delicious, the cafe was quant and rustic, and the staff had time to chat. Exactly what we wanted to find on a weekend getaway for two. We... More

Ate dinner midweek and appreciated the wide menu selection with lots of innovative and original sounding fare, in addition to more common items. (Good restaurant to take a group with wide-ranging tastes--something to please everyone). Great beer selection (made in their brewery, I believe) and small but interesting wine list. Locally sourced ingredients, and vegetarian, vegan and meat-eater options on... More

So, spent a few days camping with my daughter and stumbled across this place right down town. We did lunch and had so much good food that we were "forced" to go back again the next day! Lots of local brew beer, salads and their cheese dip is to die for. Go and and enjoy--I don't think you will be... More
