Stopped by on a lovely, sunny fall day in the Southern Tier. Very busy for a late lunch and just about all of the seats taken The Wildflower Cafe has a very nice menu with options that can meet the taste buds of just about any preferences. Hard to decide, but I was happy with my steak tacos and sweet... More

We stopped here for lunch and had burgers and a beer. The food was not bad but the beer selection was very good.

The Rooster Fish Brewery and Wild Flower Cafe feature locally grown foods and in-house beers. A friendly staff and a quiet atmosphere. Just a pleasant place to dine and relax.

Worst bar food I've ever had. Take my word for it, if you eat a bag of potato chips, it is better than eating here. They have no idea how to prepare chicken wings or stuffed hot peppers, which are bar staples. Also...they have no wine selection although they are minutes away from a wine trail. When I asked for...

This has been a staple on our visits to Watkins Glen. However, I am not so sure anymore. This is pricey which I don't normally mind as long as it's done right. Sadly this lunch was not right. I ordered a chicken sandwich with cheddar & apple (I ordered it bunless.). it was barely 3 oz of chicken. It was... More

The burgers are soso and the catfish sandwich needed another piece of fish to make a whole sandwich. Bar food.

My wife and I stopped in for lunch not knowing what to expect and we were blown away with the food. I got pork tacos (amazing!) and she got a chicken wrap thing that she loved! We were there around 12:30/1pm on a Saturday, and it was quiet and not too busy. We will go here again next time we... More

Loved the Hefeweizen beer, my date loved the IPA (the second one on their list). He loved the burger & I had the potato pancakes- unique. It said cilantro but I could've done with a little less- luckily I like it but many don't so do read the description. Great ambience- we had an open window seat and that's always... More

You are paying for the location here, and the ambience, which was nice- but very loud. It is a pub, so that is to be expected. Rolls were dry on sandwiches, I had the smallest chicken breast on mine that I have ever seen. Had the one w/ apples and NY sharp cheddar cheese. The onion straws were very tasty... More

We are visiting Watkins Glen and just had dinner here tonight. My friend got some cabbage/potato/bacon soup which was pretty good. I got a hamburger that was supposedly local fresh beef. That burger was no better than a Bubba burger out of the freezer. My friend got very average chicken sandwich. There was also just an odd smell in the... More
