Stopped in this week while driving through Watkins Glen. It's a small eat-in take-out business. We don't carry much cash while traveling and usually put our meals on our credit card. THEY CON'T TAKE CREDIT CARDS! Even I had cash, I don't think I'd enjoy eating here. It wasn't very clean and didn't look like a Restaurant at all.

The first disappointment was the sign outside says prime rib, you go inside and it turns out that it refers to Saturdays only, then they were out of trout!! We were referred to macaroni and tomato soup- don't do it.... it's like macaroni stew with bits of tomato, just NOT my cup of soup! The waitress really tried!!

I'd say it was average food. Nothing to get excited over, but again, not horrible. Very sweet staff which is a plus!
