My daughter and I chose Seneca Harbor Station hoping for local fish - trout, perch - but because all the fish was imported, we opted for Prime Rib. We both ordered it rare with a baked potato - I chose steamed veggies and my daughter a Caesar salad. We were both served huge slabs o meat. Mine... read more

I enjoyed the crab cake dinner and shared with my boyfriend his lobster tail. The restraunt is very clean and prompt service. The food prices are reasonable.

Seneca Harbor Station is housed in an old railway station and we loved the sense of history about it. The restaurant is atmospheric and has beautiful views since its on Seneca lake. The food is decent, better than most places that cater to tourists. The service is excellent. We took a walk by the lake after lunch which was lovely!

We knew it was going to be a bit expensive eating on the water in Watkins but felt that it should be okay. I ordered the Cuban sandwich and that was a huge mistake. There was more bread that there was pork and someone should have told the chef that you don't use thinly sliced deli ham in a Cuban... More

Several times we have visited watkins glen and have never been super impressed with the restaurant. There have been several times we have recieved poor service. This last visit was very disappointing someone we had invited to watkins glen ordered scallops and they had such a strong ammonia taste that she could not finish them. The manager did take them...

We tried the Seneca Harbor Station on the recommendation of the front desk clerk at our hotel. It was right next door to our hotel which was great after driving for 7 hours! The outdoor patio was a delightful area for a very nice dinner. Our food was good and the service was, too.

First meal in the Finger Lakes region and it was a REAL DUD! Wow. The local wine was not bad. The red Cabernet Franc was far better than the Malbec even though they were a bit too warm. I had clam chowder which was a very small portion and a little salty. I believe I had cod and my husband... More

Great menu, lake views and atmosphere. Food delicious and servers knowledgeable about menu and helpful. Server had a bit of a spillage, and we were offered free dessert, without asking or making a fuss.

A lovely place set beside the railway line in the old station building. Good menu selection served in pleasant surroundings and affordable prices.

On our way to the wineries, we stopped at the Seneca Harbor Station for lunch. The sandwiches were absolutely delicious. I had the portabello mushroom sandwich which came with homemade potatoes chips. It was awesome. My boyfriend had a burger. He said it was excellent. The service was good. The waitress was good and the prices were very much in... More
