“Great service, if you're a local”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2013

I have to say this place had good coffee and at breakfast time, to me that's all that matters. Their breakfast menu is the usual and their prices not all that bad considering during race time they could jack up the prices. I had pancakes and scrambled eggs, nothing special tasting about them.
The service. There were "locals" about the tables and the waitress spent a lot of time talking to them rather than serving her tables. This annoyed me as we were waiting for our meals and a coffee refill. The place is very large and was packed and if the waitresses paid more attention to their jobs, there wouldn't have been people waiting to be seated. All in all, I see it as being a real nice place as a local to hang about during off season.

“Oozes unfriendliness!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2013 via mobile

This was a poor choice. Waitress and customers stopped to watch as we entered and made nasty comments about my husband's Steelers shirt. Never had this happen anywhere. Food matched the attitude!

“Great Breakfast”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 8, 2013

We had a great breakfast. The food was wonderful and so was the service. We had the cinnamon french toast and my daughter had the chocolate chip pancakes. Would definitely come back again the next time we are in Watkins Glen.

“Family friendly with huge portions”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

Good diner food, family friendly service and huge portions. This place is popular among the locals so it does get busy. We had breakfast there on a Saturday and it was pretty crowded.

“Good fare at a fair price”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2013

Sorry we did not find this spot sooner. It is a haunt for locals and everyone is friendly. The food was well prepared and they do a mix and match that would allow one to make any combo that they would like. Portions are large. Wait staff is very pleasant and helpful. Highly recommend for breakfast.
