I went to Wildflowers last night and was met with the friendliest service. I had the seafood roll which was delicious and upgraded to the fries side. Fries were good. My husband had a burger and he said it was delicious. Wildflowers had craft beer and good cocktail options. It is a little gem in Watkins Glen.

Great food with lots of smart choices in a town with mostly more conventional fare. Waitress was engaging and helpful without getting the way and prices are very reasonable. Highly recommended.

We stopped twice during four days. Both times for a late lunch. Appetisers, sandwiches and salads were tasty and some were a bit unique. Enjoyed the local beers. It may cost a little more than some but everything was tasty.

Really cute place to stop off at for dinner. Ordered a flight of 6 different craft beers. Loved all but one. The chocolate stout was my favorite, Food was very good, and large portions. Had a nice dinner the next night also. Our server, can't remember his name, was a doll. Service was perfect. Definitely recommend giving this place a... More

Our group of ten had lunch in the Wildflower Cafe last week, and we needed to be on our way at a specific time. The service was efficient but friendly, and the food was good. The burgers were big and juicy, wings were crispy, and the sweet potato fries were excellent. The pulled pork sandwich was huge--too big for the... More

Although mussels seem to be he thing to get (besides the craft beer) we opted for burgers instead. They were very good, as was the pan-fried Brussels sprouts. Nice decor, great service, and a good place to get a casual meal while in town.

We ate in the back room, which was kind of loud, but what it lacked in ambiance it made up for with the food and drink choices. My burger was cooked just right and was delicious. The fries were a little limp, but the beer was refreshing. Price was reasonable.

The food was good but not spectacular. They offer A couple good vegan options. Service was friendly and fast. Seemed a little pricey. $12 for a quinoa bean burger. Soup was Thai pumpkin- a less esoteric option would have been good on this rainy Sunday.

So the Wildflower café is located right on the main street of Watkins Glen. It is also affiliated with a brewery which I've personally never tried. The inside of the Wildflower is decorated to fit the aesthetics of the history of the building as well as of the vicinity in general; hardwood floors, hand carved hardwood details, pictures of cars...
