Stopped in for their "in-between" menu. Pared down from the lunch and dinner menu with apps, sandwiches, salads, desserts. The Applejack Salad was fantastic! I have to get back to try something from their dinner menu as it looks great!

We had the best server. Her name tag read. Corey. Corey was super amazing. It was a mad house because of the NASCAR race but she was spot on for service. I hope she gets a good pay raise since she's a college student. Oh the food was OK also. But we would go back just to visit her.

Surprised by the generally favorable reviews here as the impression is that this is a good upscale eatery in Watkins Glen. However, our experience included THE worst appetizer we have ever eaten- a type of brushetta which was vitually unedible. It was made using their very cheap table bread (with diner-styled butter packets to boot). Thought we would get the... More

we stopped for a late afternoon snack (delicious, clam-plentiful clam chowder) and local beers (delicious). the views are the selling point here. convenient to boat ride on Lake Seneca or reward for walk in State Park. not sure if it's such a great value for dinner, but it was perfect for drinks and snack. pleasant service

I headed to Seneca Harbor Station on my arrival in town to grab a late dinner. I arrived slightly before 9pm to be told that they were closing. They were kind enough to recommend places that they were sure were open. The next evening I returned to the Seneca Harbor Station. I arrived at 8pm after coming off the hour... More

This restaurant looks so pretty but don't be fooled. Our Family ate there this past week and we were seriously disappointed. We had looked up the menu on line prior to our visit, however when we arrived the menu items were at least $5 more on the real menu. My Husband's steak and shrimp were very over cooked, perhaps the... More

We stopped spur of the moment for my mom's birthday. The setting was very nice and they had a decent menu (no seafood on kids' menu did surprise me though). My kids shared the seafood sampler without the calamari. We were quite pleased with the size of the serving and individual pieces. My mom and I split the fish and... More

We were here on a Friday evening in August, and they were hosting a wedding rehearsal dinner. It was very noisy. I thought maybe they could have reserved the room for that party and seated other guests outside. Other than that, the place is good. Nice view of the dock and lake, and the food was very good.

Had a great late lunch outdoors with beautiful view of Seneca Lake. Train went thru slowly on tracks within feet of where we were eating. Fun to see. Portions were large and both of us liked our meal. Servers were attentive and friendly, as well as helpful with tourist questions. Would definitely go back.
