In town for a driving event, decided to check out the Lodge, which is popular with people attending the track events as a place to stay and eat (us here just for dinner). It's a fairly large room, a real camp feel. Seated quickly, our server was attentive and helpful. Dishes included london broil and eggplant parm, both highly recommended.... More

My family visited Seneca Lodge for a family reunion dinner in July 2016. The atmosphere is classy and clean, but they portray a relaxed environment (no dress code). The staff were accommodating, but not really over the top friendly. They did their job and took care of us without many smiles or chat. We did have to ask for refills... More

We stopped by here after a race at Watkins Glen International. We really enjoyed the food, I got the filet and my Fiance got the Pork Tenderloin. Both were delicious and we had absolutely no complaints with the service. We stopped at the bar afterwards to check out some awesome racing mementos. Drinks were reasonable priced, and we got very...

This is an old-school type place, which prides itself on being in the family for several generations. It has a nice ambiance with kitschy memorabilia in the bar which is fun to see. But the food we had for dinner was unacceptable. My fish was so dry it was inedible. On the plus side, the nice waitress took it away... More

We went to dinner here during the Vintage Grand Prix. The lot was constantly full of cool cars, and we figured people who spend a lot of time at the race track would know where to eat in town. We picked a prime rib night. They have a decent small salad bar and the calamari appetizer was good, but the... More

Went after race today. Didn't have wine we requested, salad bar is fantastic, place crawling with race fans and drivers and crew from Watkins glen. It is a classic and we were able to get in and out, but... Would go to Montoya falls next time if I can talk the group to move. $67 for 2 without tip with... More

The dining room is rustic, comfortable and bright. Excellent service, good food, interesting décor (check out all the arrows) and overall a very nice place to eat.

On our annual wine trip we decided to have breakfast at the Seneca Lodge. We have not been there for two years. The menu has changed and prices have gone up. Breakfast was acceptable for the three guys Eggs, bacon, Potatoes and toast. The three girls had French toast, came out cold for all the first time, the second time... More

This place is so good. A little rustic with some history knowledge of racing in hunting in archery. I love the scenery I love the old-style of the place. The food is always fantastic, the service is always with a smile I wanted scallops & prib , & the waitress did give me both for a reasonable price, I highly... More
