Broad menu of excellent food. Friendly prompt service. Relaxed country inn setting. Great place to go while visiting Ithaca or Cortland.

I had heard good things about this restaurant, but had never tried it. So tonight we decided to order a pizza and a meatball sub to go, and eat them at home. The plain, large pizza cost $14. That was fine, and the pizza was tasty. The "hearty" (as the menu describes it) meatball sub cost $10.75, and included a... More

The wife and I stopped in on a slow Sunday evening. Sat at a table in bar area and were promptly waited on by an attentive bartender/waitress. At her suggestion, tried the "garbage" wings. Delicious. Wife had a chicken wrap, also very good. Sampled the two Cortland beers on tap - excellent. Two waitresses made sure we were set on... More

I work nearby so we end up going here for lunch or after work drinks pretty often. The food is pretty good and the beer selection is not bad. Service is alright. Have had some ehh experiences, but mostly it's fine. Good variety on their menu. I like the salads or paninis. Also quite a few options for sides which... More

We stopped in for lunch on a weekday for the first time. At the side entry you walk into the bar area. there were some people at the bar, but no employee greeted us of even noticed us. We walked to the dining room. There was no "seat yourself" sign but we did anyway. A waitress walked passed us and... More

Good basic menu choices, nothing extraordinary but good value. Can be noisy in the evening. Service is pleasant and efficient.
