My wife eat an imaginative portobello mushroom meal, I eat a pasta with sea food very nicely done. Followed by a shared excellent bread and butter dessert. Drinks, especially very good beer, reasonably priced. We eat on the covered patio. Large and very nicely executed with a wonderful sunset view of Seneca Lake. Nice and casual service. Recommended.

We have visited the Watkins Glen area many times in the past few years, but have never dined at this restaurant, so we decided to try Seneca Harbor Station this year. Sorry to say that it was not a good experience. The evening started okay........even though the restaurant was crowded, we were immediately seated at an outdoor table that was... More

Conveniently located in Watkins Glen. Good food. Large portions. Reasonable price. Nice covered outdoor seating area with views of the lake. The parking area is small for the size of the restaurant. Situated next to some old train tracks. The waitress told us that the train only comes by once a day. After our meal, we crossed the tracks to... More

This is more expensive of a place than i the heart of the Glen but it is very nice.... the bar area is very small so it is not the place to enjoy a drink at the bar but it can provide wonderful out door dining aside from the inside dining room. The food is fine.

We visited this restaurant this past weekend during a girls wine-tasting weekend. What a mistake. First off, the parking situation is terrible. Such a small parking lot and almost impossible to find a spot on a Saturday night. We tried twice to call to make reservations but the first time we were told they don't take reservations for less than... More

I was hesitant to eat here as it is part of the lake attractions and felt it might be all about the view of the lake rather than the food. One decision was made because I am a vegetarian and the had a stuffed Montebello mushroom on the menu so thought my wife and I would give it a try.... More

Advertised as a seafood restaurant but offered cardboard-like sausage pizza as a special. I've had better pizza from the freezer section of the supermarket. One of our friends had steak and lobster tail, the steak was overcooked and the lobster tail was smaller than the ones we get for $4.99 at Publix seafood counter. We really expected a better experience... More

The food was good and the view of the water is awesome! The portions of the food did leave a little to be desired.

It was about 4:00 way before dinner hour when I walked into the restaurant. There were some diners there but not many. I was seated outside and given a menu. Many servers passed me by and I watched 2 other tables being served. Ok, maybe they're shorthanded but then I noticed 2 servers by the service area just standing there... More
