The Big Tree Inn has a long history in Geneseo and is a beautiful building. It's also billed as a fine-dining restaurant (I have never stayed in the hotel). I have heard that at one point it was, but I would not say that now.
Think pub-grade food in an upscale location.
The bar is nice, with dark woods and green and a good atmosphere. The dining rooms are well appointed with a sort of old-school, colonial look.
I've eaten here several times when my guest is looking for something "nicer" than the diners or delis around, which the ambiance fills but the food lacks.
Slow service. Mediocre food at best. For the price, each dish should not look and taste like it was defrosted and then coated with a sauce that came out of a plastic bag. Lower the prices to match the quality or raise your standards.
