We went here Saturday night during the busy race weekend. The food was delicious (catfish tacos). We expected a long wait for our table and meals, but not at all. The service was very quick and attentive. Worth a repeat visit for sure

After a morning of wineries, I was in the mood for lunch but not for beer. It appears that this place makes its repuation on pairing beer with basic food items. Since I sklipped that perhaps they never had a chance. My wife and I ordered burgers and we both commented they were more like Bubba Burgers than gormet burgers.... More

We stopped here for a quick bite to eat, and ordered the salad special - which was local, organic greens and grilled shrimp. I wish I could remember the description, because it sure sounded fancier than that... but that's all it was. We asked if it was a good size, and were assured that it was... but I guess "large"...

We stopped into Rooster Fish to try their beer and get a snack. Even though the place was empty at 5PM on a Saturday we just couldn't seem to get them interested in serving us so we just went to the bar, got drinks and sat down. They had a good size selection of home brew and they were pretty... More

When you come to see the gorge, this is a great stop for food and a house made brew. Food is very very good and pretty much organic. Try the corn fritters. Yummy.

I love this place. The open atmosphere and very cool bar, great brews and local wines make it a favorite. You can also order food from the Wildflower Cafe. We have been in Watkins Glen almost yearly for the past 15 years or so and never miss a visit to this place!

Cannot wait to go back! Everyone in our group loved the food and we all sampled the beers. If you are a fan of craft brews, don't miss this place!

We came to taste beer and ended up eating as well. We were pleasantly surprised by both the quality and depth of the beer and the food. Just as any brewery should, you can taste as many beers from Rooster Fish as you'd like in sample sizes. We sampled several beers and decided to order their Cajun Mussel Bowl and... More

The specialize in barbecue. I had the beef brisket and it melted in my mouth. It was very busy and noisy so not a quiet romantic get away. We had dinner but it appeared to be set up for a bar crowd for later. A live musician was setting up when we left. Very nice outdoor patio and cool heaters... More
