This is our second visit here (ate here last summer) and we will likely return. The Summer Soup and the crab cakes were both delicious!

“Little nicer than average, but a regular restuarant/pub.”
Reviewed June 19, 2013

The bar and restaurant are separated by a wall. The restaurant is a typical wood paneled pub type with average food and some nice beers.

“Good food, friendly service”
Reviewed June 18, 2013

We ate on the Rooster Fish Brewery side but I assume the food was the same. Besides, I was here for their beer. We were told the food was all local and it tasted like it, better than usual pub fare. The service was very fast and friendly. My only problem was they were out of several of their main beers...especially the one I was looking for. I was very disappointed. I didn't stop back because of that and we were in Watkins Glen three days. Too bad :(

“Tasty, but a bit pricey”
Reviewed June 16, 2013

The menu had several intriguing selections, and both that we ordered were delicious. A little on the pricey side compared to what we would have expected.

“way overpriced for quality and taste”
Reviewed June 12, 2013

We came here on a recomendation, we split the spinach salad whice was good but not alot of food for $10 and we got the jamacian jerk chicken and shrimp which for $20 should of come with some bread or a side salad. The taste was just OK, nothing that made you ever want to get it again. Maybe we were unlucky on what we ordered. I felt disappointed when I left. The wait staff never asked how it tasted.
