My wife and I enjoyed this cafe one evening while visiting the region. I had their "famous" burger. She had fried fish. Both were well prepared and tasty. I'd certainly eat there again if the occasion arose.

Great spot for burgers--Friday fish fry--good sandwiches--reasonably priced. Plenty of seating--atmosphere ok but nothing romantic except the pines burger!

We stopped here for a bite to eat after hiking to Taughannock Falls. We had some very hungry hikers that included two children. The staff put together a table for us quickly despite having a very busy dining room. I had heard Glenwood Pines is known for their burgers, and it did not disappoint! Our food had great flavor and... More

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!

My family and I went here last evening as a last minute choice because the restaurant we drove up to Ithaca to have our dinner at, told us there would be a 4 hour wait for our party of 10. I found Glenwood Pines on Trip Advisor, and convinced the rest of the party to try it. A few of... More

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!
