In a small town with limited food options, this was pretty good. It has a varied menu. Their beer is really good and served nice and cold. Had dinner here and then went back for lunch the next day before heading to the gorge. Loved the catfish tacos!

The menu had several intriguing selections, and both that we ordered were delicious. A little on the pricey side compared to what we would have expected.

After working all day and then 4 hours of driving on a Friday night, my boyfriend and I were hungry and ready for a beer as we came through Watkins Glen. I believe we walked in the Rooster Fish Brewing Company right before 7pm. It was perfect timing... the live music was about to begin, the bar was full, and... More

Great Beer selection to go with a great menu for dinner after a nice walk around the shoppes in town. We will stop back again or our fall wine trip.

The Rooster Fish Brewing company in Watkins Glen is an unassuming bar with maybe 12 stools at the bar and a fair amount of table seating. I had a single beer (Firehouse Blond -- a blond ale) there but it was good and the people (both custoemrs and staff) were friendly. They have their own deckles that are worth collecting.... More

My boyfriend and I came to Watkins Glen specifically for Roosterfish beer and the restaurant affiliated with them. We both work in the restaurant industry (I am a server/bartender, he is an aspiring chef) and we've had Roosterfish brews on tap at the Ithaca restaurant where we both work. We thought it would be cool to try some more of... More

Their food is alright, no one was blown away by it and I was in a party of about ten who split up into smaller tables. Their beer is fantastic and their bar has pretty cool musicians. I can spend a whole lot of time at their bar if you can tear me away from the wineries!

We went here for dinner on a Friday night and had no wait for a table. We sampled 6 beers which they give you in 4oz sample glasses. Of what we tried my husband enjoyed a seasonal ale which had a cocoa flavor and I liked the lighter blonde ale. I had an eggplant pannini with NYS mozzarella, roasted red... More
