“Beautiful Old Inn”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 19, 2013

This gem tucked away in a small town is well worth the time and effort to experience. The food is fantastic, the service is flawless and the ambience is delightful. There are several seafood choices as well as beef and a very good vegetarian tofu dish.

“To expensive and unpleasant!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 6, 2013

Not impressed with this restaurant at all! Have lived in Geneseo for 18 years and each change that this restaurant makes only makes it worse. I am talking about both sections. I have always felt that most of the customers appear to be snobs and rude. To expensive. Beer on tap is often flat. Bar area is often to cramped to be comfortable. Most servers have been very nice I must say. Will not be going back ever again!

“Collosal Shrimp Cocktail”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 21, 2013

The Big Tree Inn is a charming place in the heart of downown Geneseo. Our group ate in the bar area and had drinks and dinner. Every single one of us had the COLLOSAL shrimp appetizer and another item on the menu (crab cakes, fish fry, portabella mushroom sandwich, burgers, etc). The food and drinks were fine but the large shrimp, which resembled prawn shrimp in Seattle, made the meal! A nice date, or business meeting would be a good glass of Finger Lakes wine and the LARGE shrimp. Service was good, make sure you order the shrimp.

“Excellent high quality.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 15, 2013 via mobile

I was fortunate to be able to eat at the Big Tree lunchtimes and evening meals.

The place is great in terms of service, food quality and atmosphere.

Every meal was stunning. 100% quality of service and the venue is a 'Wow'

“Delicious, creative menu and excellent personable service.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 25, 2013 via mobile

My husband made this reservation to celebrate our 32nd Anniversary. We are traveling to the area for a family birthday. We had the Crab Cakes appetizer, I had the new Thai salad (they kindly substituted grilled Tofu for the Steak); my husband had Chicken Marsala. The crab cakes were delicious (we are connoisseurs - having lived on the Maryland Eastern Shore), the Thai Salad and Chicken Marsala were really exceptional. Our server, Abby, was attentive, and genuinely friendly. Dessert - Fresh Berry Stack split between the two of us - was yummy and overly generous. We had an excellent meal and this was while the Inn was accommodating a Wedding. Terrific!
