“Absolutely delicious”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 29, 2013

We heard about the delicious burgers and decided to stop. My husband said it was very good. I wasn't that hungry so only had seafood chowder and salad and they were very good also. Since the rest of the menu looked appetizing we went back the following night for scallops with mushrooms and pork chops and they some of the best we have ever had. We will definitely go back again when in the area.

“A fried fish bastion for over 30 years”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 29, 2013 via mobile

Came here back in college and nothing seems to have changed. Still good for fried haddock dinners or sandwiches. Sides for sandwiches are a la Carte, Tartar sauce is served in a thimble. Ask which dessert is homemade, usually at least one is. Our night the rice pudding was it and was not to be missed. Still packs in a crowd.

“Yummy and Fast”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 21, 2013

When you walk into Glenwood Pines you step back into time. It reminds me of growing up going to the lake in Ca. Old Campy but awesome food and really great friendly staff. I usually pick up a burger either Veggie or beef and some corn nuggets and head out to hike with my Dog. They get my food made up so quickly and offer water to my dog. I love this place.

“Great food, year after year!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 17, 2013

Visited the Pines for the first time in a while...the Pinesburger is still awesome and the view is still great. I have never had a bad meal there and the people are always friendly. It is a required stop whenever visiting Ithaca!

“The hamburger is perfect!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 9, 2013

The place is simple, but very different and special. Service is good and beers are perfect there. A "must go" in Ithaca.
