Felt unwelcome the full time we were there - should have walked out before the attender late to our table. Probably they didn't want us as repeat customers or maybe they just want to serve drinks. Order was taken after a long wait, got the food (which was average at best) after a long wait and even had to wait... More

Always lively and always great food. The Witmer family is all-world. Great TVs for sports. Just down the road from casino, horse racing and golf. Southern Tier of New York is as good as it gets -- natural beauty and RnR.

Have heard a lot about this place but just never got around to trying it out till the other night. My wife and I stopped in on a Thursday night looking for a quick meal. My wife has a gluten problem so she was limited to just a couple items on the menu but I thought the menu was the... More

Stopped in with a few couples last night for cocktails only. So, I can't say anything about the food but can tell you the cocktails are a nice size at a reasonable price. We are all anxious to try the food next time! Bathrooms were bright, clean, and sizable. We will be back.

Stopped while camping in Rome, Pa. and had a great time. Fun workers and nice patrons. Did not eat but will return to do that as the food looked fantastic and was very reasonably priced. It was busy which is a good sign.

If you live anywhere within 30 miles of Wits, I'd highly recommend you try them for a great dinner and a beer. I live close, so we go there often...because traveling 20 miles to eat someplace else is always a letdown. The best food is right here, in Nichols. Cheesesteak subs= yum! Burgers...yum! You can't get a better chefs salad.... More

This is an excellent place to grab a brew with friends and have some good food. The wings are absolutely great, try the house sauce! The hand made Pizzas are amazing. always good dinner specials with low prices.

I wanted to update my review of Wit's end tavern. They still have some of the best bar food in the area, with incredible homemade soups and the burgers are unreal! The chicken wings deserve a sentence all to themselves, large, perfectly cook wings that you can dip in one or multiple flavors! The new information to share is the... More

Now your first impression of the building may have you thinking, "really, there is good food here?!", but let me tell you the BEST wings, burgers, brick oven pizza's are hidden here! The staff is great, the owner will sit at the bar and chat with you. But above and beyond this are the soups! They are not every night,... More
