We thoroughly enjoyed lunch at Wildflower. There were plenty of options to satisfy my meat loving husband and my veggie loving preferences. Our server was very pleasant.

Always happy to see a restaurant that uses local ingredients and sustainable fish, but that's about all that we were happy about. Corn fritter appetizers were nothing special and a bit on the burned and overcooked side, catfish tacos had minimal fish & was just mediocre at best, chicken and apple cheddar sandwich was a nice thought but the execution...

Represented to us by locals as a place with organic food and geared to healthy eating. Pleasant enough but it really is just a bar with food. We expected more healthy choices, especially in view of their reputation for using locally sourced organic items.

It's a cafe/pub. Good beer, okay food. if you are stuck at Watkins Glen for dinner, this is one of your better options. Consider driving up to Geneva, though.

After a long time lunch in this restaurant reminded us how good food can be in these small town non franchise restaurants. We did a small research on the go while we were in Watkins Glen and decided to stop here for lunch. It was right choice, every item ordered was really good and of course I enjoyed beer too.

Very fine menu selections and we settled on the unique vegatable lasagna (no noodles, but with portabello mushrooms) and also the chicken pasta special. Excellent chicken wings for the appetizer- their own sauce coupled with quality chicken. Perhaps best of all was the homemade table bread- Irish soda with a twist and it was one of the best breads we... More

this was a happy surprise, which we were sorry to discover only on our 3rd and final night in town. we understand from locals that the Wildflower had gone through ups and downs recently. it was definitely UP on our visit! delicious food, using wonderful local ingredients, and very pleasant, fun, friendly service. I'd recommend the local beers over local... More

My wife and I went for a couple of nights to the finger lakes and we started our excursion here. The food was phenomenal and I am picky. We did a beer trail tour and frankly, this beer was the best that we had even though it wasn't on our tour. I highly recommend this place if you're in the... More

Many options on menu. Should be able to satisfy everyone in your party. We started with the corn fritters (with a great sweet pepper dipping sauce), shared a pizza and salad and had more than enough. Service was good, not rushed and very polite. Many craft beer choices, all well described on the menu.
