We tried Wildflower Cafe because we were traveling with friends who are vegetarian and they have many vegetarian options on their menu. Our friends were overwhelmed with the variety, since they usually have to choose between 2-3 options tops.
2 people in our party tried the burgers and were pleased. The burgers are organic and from pasture raised cows.

we stopped in for dinner and a cold one, Molly was very good and very helpful, with the food and helping me pick a beer from the list of fresh made beers. After eating we stopped at the bar for a few before going to the B&B and Nick poured a hell of a beer, and was very nice to talk to. We stop here everytime we are in the Glen.

We had heard good things about the beer, so my husband and is topped in for a tasting. Our server, Jessica, was very friendly and knowledgable. She told us all about the different beers, so we could try a few that sounded like what we would like. Jessica also noticed that our 3 kids were waiting for us in a booth nearby. So she took over a basket of peanuts for them to have while we did our tasting. So thoughtful! Really liked the Blonde, Mysterious, and Triple Witch. We would have liked to have gotten all 3, but they only sell their beer in Growlers; which only last about a week after they are opened. So we got the Mysterious; and are enjoying it as I submit this review : )

We were on vacation in the Finger Lakes and decided to try this TripAdvisor recommended restaurant for lunch. We were happy that we were seated at a window table. However, once we received our menus it took about 10 minutes for our server to get our order. Normally, I would be understanding, but since many people that came in after us were waited on relatively quickly BEFORE us, it was frustrating. Once we finally ordered, we did receive our appetizer fairly quickly. The Gouda Crab Dip was very good. That's where the quick service ended. It was as if the server ( a young woman) barely knew we were there. An hour after we arrived, we finally received our meals; a small pizza, kid's pasta, soup and salad, and chicken wings. Thankfully, the food was good- and we ate it all. This place is quaint and some of the staff seemed pretty friendly, but unfortunately, I would not go back due to the slow and frankly, rude, service.

This is a glorified dive bar, but they have really good food and beer for the price they charge. It was completely dead in there when we went (on a Tuesday night during our vacation), but quick service, great food, solid place. Don't expect 5 star food, you get what you pay for.
