Initially booked a Saturday night stay and added a second night. Rooms are clean and unpretentious. We had dinner both nights in the lodge, food was good and there was plenty. My husband had the meatloaf special on Sunday, and it was more than he could eat. i had the grilled chicken, which came with two breasts. The salad bar... More

Cute place. The property has accommodations, a bar, and a restaurant. We went for dinner. Everyone enjoyed their meal. Reasonable prices. Great service. Most meals come with this little salad bar that was very good and fresh. The blue cheese is insane, thick and chunky. Originally thought it was cottage cheese.

If you are a race fan or hunter, you will enjoy the fantastic collection of history on the walls! Rest there is a bar and restaurant, but the history of this lodge restaurant is the star attraction!

My husband and I enjoyed breakfast here while we were in the Watkins Glen area and enjoyed it. The restaurant is in a log cabin and had a nice rustic feel to it. The pancakes I had were wonderful and I left feeling quite full. Service was prompt and attentive. Will definitely return.

The menu has changed very little over the years, from the orange duck, to the pork chops, to the fried chicken accompanied by an always fresh salad bar. There is also a knightly special. My first visit was 30 years ago and I can honestly say I've never had a bad meal. the is a unique bar off the dining... More

The food here can go from excellent to average. The salad bar is nice, not extensive but everything is fresh and good. The atmosphere is rustic and fun. Our favorite meal is the London Broil. The Prime Rib is also excellent. We stop here at least once every time we visit the Finger Lakes

Seneca Lodge is extremely casual. Come as you are. They have a good menu with lots of down-home favorites. The night we were there, one of their specials was a meatloaf dinner. The prime rib is excellent. Be advised that the petite cut of prime rib will cover 3/4 of your dinner plate. Alcoholic drinks are also available with dinner... More

Ate here on a Thursday evening. The surroundings are peaceful and clean. Salad bar items were fresh. The blue cheese dressing was thick and rich. Me: lamb chops (3) done to perfection. Tender. Carl: fried chicken (1/2) again, perfectly cooked Bob: fried shrimp(frozen), but he loved each bite Beverly: sea scallops fried. Ate them all. Would definitely go back when... More

This rustic, log cabin style restaurant offers simple, but good food. We had raisin cinnamon French toast with local maple syrup. Yum. Hostess, waitress, owner? Woman was a bit abrupt, but we just ignored it and enjoyed our meal.

The Seneca Lodge Restaurant features nightly specials, a healthy salad bar, and a menu for everyone--including vegetarians and children. The meats are excellent and robust, my friends love the chicken Parmesan, and I also really enjoy the vegetarian pasta dish. Portions are large and they accommodate food allergies and preferences. Even when the restaurant is packed (Sunday brunch here is... More
