Had dinner on the porch. Fish fry was delicious. Great atmosphere and service. Music was great too. Speakeasy was a blast! If you like bourbon than this is a must. Largest selection in central New York maybe even all of the east. Had some amazing whiskey. Can't wait to back

My husband and I stayed at this inn, hoping to enjoy some snowmobiling, but due to an unseasonably warm winter we weren't able to. We originally booked the King room, but cancelled that booking when we found out there wasn't snow. The Inn doesn't refund your money, but holds your reservation for a future date. We decided to call and... More

Stopped in for a late night snack and was glad to see that the new owners have embraced their opportunity. The bar has been spruced up and expanded.The liquor and beer selections are top notch and the bar tender Billy was glad to be of service. Good pours and quick food service made our stop worth the time. Prices are... More

We were in the OF area the week after Labor Day. I was a local boy growing up and had been to this in under several owners. As I am getting more interested in bourbon we were told they had a nice selection in "The Speak Easy". Well I wasn't disappointed, they had a very nice collection. There were 8... More

The potted pink geraniums on the porch and the shrimp bisque were the high points of our visit. The turkey/bacon roll up was tasteless, and a corn/potato soup was bland. We had looked forward to this visit. It is in a great location near the RR station in Thendara. The bisque suggested the kitchen has potential. The waiter was frustrated... More

See those nice pictures on the website that make this seem like a quaint, relaxing inn? Well the reality is that this is anything but that. This place is a very loud live music establishment. If you check out the entertainment link on the website, you will see that live bands play until late in the evening and sometimes past... More

I have very mixed feelings about this Bed and Breakfast. Do you know those commericals where the couple picked Bed or Breakfasst? That's how I felt from the start. The continental offerings for breakfast were horrible. Nothing but carbs that had been sitting out overnight. Some yogurt or fruit would have been a nice addition. We skipped breakfast both days...

Under new ownership brought great things to a this staple bar/inn in this area. The staff hands down makes your dining/bar visit perfect! I have never stayed in one of the trims do I can't speak for that part, however I love this place for dinner & drinks. The lounge is separate from the dining room, so you can choice... More

I've made many trips to the Old Forge area over the years but this was our first stop at Van Auken's and it was certainly a pleasant find. I booked there at the recommendation of a friend who has a vacation home there. There is new ownership and they are still working out a few kinks but their can do,... More

We stayed at Van Auken's on NYE and had a very nice time. The dinner was amazing! Everything was fresh, tasty and served at the perfect temperature. The room was very clean with a large bathroom. They provided lots of towels. Plenty of space for luggage and to hang your clothes. Our room was over the bar but we really... More
