Scenery, service, food and atmosphere are all excellent. The place just has a really good feeling about it. Just wish it was open all year round.

The food is pretty good. I have the steamed mussels and shrimp in white wine with toasted French bread. The food was good, the beer cold. If that was all they had, it would be worth going back for more, but they have more. The outside patio area is ON THE WATER. You side outside with about 200 sail and motor boats all around, so if you don't want to watch your neighbors in the restaurant, you can watch the harbor action. GREAT VIEW of lovely Seneca Lake, too.

Wonderful location. Right on the water overlooking the South point of Seneca Lake. It also overlooks the marina. It has plenty of outdoor seating and always seemed to have a constant flow of people. The location was so good that we went there a few times just even for drinks while in Watkins. The service was good, but some of the staff seemed new and a little overwhelmed during busier times. The food was tasty and delivered fairly promptly. The only critique I would have would be their hours of operation. On a beautiful Thursday evening they closed at 9 pm. I would think with that location and lack of other venues, that it would stay open until at least 11ish.

My family and I were on vacation in Watkins Glen, NY and went to the Village Marina Bar & Grill recently. Everything started out great, but just went down hill very fast. Our server never came back to ask if we needed anything else to drink (we were sitting in the hot sun) so my husband kept going to the barr to our drink refills. My husband and I both ordered large salads to have before our meals and our boys ordered an app. The app came out about 30min after we ordered it, then my husbands meal and my one sons meal came out (it was good that we had the app to munch on) my other son and I waited and waited for our food. Finally my meal and my husbands salad came out. Then my salad (which was a small and was still charged for a large) and my other sons meal came out. I could hear servers telling their tables that the kitchen really didn't know what they were doing and that was why food was coming out in bits and pieces. The food had hardly any taste and wasn't very good. My one son didn't even eat his food because it looked 1/2 cooked and the taste was horrible. We were all very disappointed. It really looks like a great place to go, but from the sounds of it the kitchen staff need a LOT of help. On our way out I watched a cook from the kitchen come out and go right into the bathroom with his apron still on GROSS!!!! It really made me wonder if he even washed his hands when he was done. We will NEVER be back there again. I really don't know how they have been open as long as they have with the food being so bad and the kitchen staff not knowing how to run a kitchen.

My wife and I stayed on our boat the Village Marina for 5 days. The convenience of the restaurant is a high point. It is litererally at the end of the transient dock. The setting is nice and the interior has the charm of a local watering hole where fisherman would hang out. The staff were friendly and the service was good. We had lunch upon our arrival at the marina on the first day of our stay . I had a fish sandwich and my wife chose the reuben. Both were very good, nothing spectacular, but prepared with fresh ingredients and delivered to our table in a reasonable amount of time.
