Although the food is never a disappointment, if you're looking for comfort food, the place lacks updated atmosphere for being in such a great setting!

We saw all the cars and bikes in the lot so figured it must be a good place to stop and we were not disappointed. The pretty view would be enough to spend some time here but what a surprise to find very fresh and tasty seafood and yummy fresh draft beer (as well as delicious local ginger beer for... More

We tried this restaurant on the advice of a local. Dinner was good. I had fried shrimp and my wife had the fish fry. Service was good. We had a view of the lake.

Every time we have stopped in at Glenwood Pines for a quick meal we have been so pleased with the service (waitress & waiters are so friendly & very good), and our meals are always fantastic!!! The view of Cayuga Lake is beautiful. Our whole experience is worth another return - no doubt!

The best burgers and bloody marys in the area. The Pines has been around since I attended Cornell many years ago and every time I go back I have to stop there!

When in Ithaca over graduation weekend this is a go to place where you can be seated quickly. The food is good and the prices are reasonable. Waitresses attention to detail make up for any lack of ambience

found this through a phone book ad, must pay off for them as there were few other ads... lovely lakeside restaurant ... not inaccurate to call it a pub, as another reviewer did... had great cornell chicken sandwich, fine gumbo, good turkey burger, fluffy rice pudding and capped it all off with a 25-cent bowling machine... will be back often,...
