“'UNDER CONSTRUCTION"”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 20, 2013

The Rongo has new owners and is currently being upgraded. Closed for now but signs say "reopening in 2013," so, we're all hopeful.

“A visit to my hippy past”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 27, 2012

The Rongo is a tradition in Trumansburg. A great place to have a beer and some food while soaking in the ambiance. A must see.

“Nacho Heaven!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2012

After the long drive up to the area and a sweaty hike, the nachos at this place were the best thing ever! I don't know what kind of cheese they use... but it was creamy and delicious! Excellent service, fun, casual atmosphere, and on the weekends they have live music!

“Funky as they come!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 15, 2012

If you want a funky evening of drinks and dance ... this is the place. Somewhat of a throwback to the 70s ... this place has a character of its own with very friendly people, great drinks and a stage and dance floor to boot!

“Famous music venue”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 23, 2012

It seems like fewer and fewer people are aware of the Rongo's music heritage. This place is infamous. Back in the day, every up-and-coming band made their way through the Rongo. The music industry has changed and the chances of seeing the next Rolling Stones may not be as likely, but that's not to say you won't hear some great music. Everything from folk, bluegrass, rock, country, dub, singer-song writer, jazz, etc. They even hosts plays (annual: A Christmas Carol), kids events and fund raisers.

I love the environment. Exposed brick, decades worn hardwood booths, etc.. I wish they had a bit more beer variety and sometimes the wait staff can seem a bit distracted, but the fresh ingredients and nice environment make it up in spades.
