We have been going to Seneca Lodge's restaurant for many years. It is a family friendly place, and fairly loud at times, so don't plan on an intimate conversation. The reasonably priced menu has plain American food, which comes with a decent salad bar. But, the best bar to see is the BAR itself. It has various memorabilia from archery... More

Always go there for breakfast, quick service, lots of options ... dinner has a more limited selection, salad bar is slamming ... only one cheese option for meals...definitely make a ritual to attend each once a year.

A group of about 10 went to Seneca Lodge this past Saturday and did not enjoy it. First we were told to wait because 2 members of our party were not there yet... We had 2 elderly ladies and my sister in law said we can't stand here and wait... so we sat down... our waiter spilled au jus sauce... More

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
