We are walking distance from many Hotels, Motels, B&B's and many area attractions including the State Park Gorge, Seneca Lake and several great shops. We have both Italian and American selections including a variety of Pasta, Steaks, Seafood, Poultry, Sandwiches, Veal, Salads, Pizza, Wings, and Burgers. We offer a full service bar for a quick drink with friends or to enjoy a meal watching a ball game. Our specialty is family dining. We also enjoy serving business clientele and being part of special events like anniversaries and rehearsal dinners. Our goal is to serve a quality meal that is affordable, and sure to satisfy. All of our entree's are prepared to order. Our bread is purchased daily from local bakeries in Watkins Glen and Montour falls. Our pizza is made from freshly prepared dough. We use whole milk mozzarella from Upstate New York farms. We feature many regional and domestic wines including Lakewood, Hazlitt, Glenora, Rock Stream, Fox Run and more. We have a variety of import/domestic bottle beers and keep a few regional craft beers on tap. Our entree price range is $7.99 -$23.99. In addition to our dining room, if your on the go, we have a very popular "take-out" located at the rear of our building. In the summer months we are open from 11am - 10pm seven days a weak.

“Great pizza and quick service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 9, 2012

We stopped by Jerlando's Pizza, which is located behind the restaurant for a lunch after spending the morning hiking at Watkins Glen. You can tell the place is a favorite for locals as we watched one person after another stop in for a couple slices of pizza during the lunch hour. The crust on the pizza was extremely crispy and the sauce was sweet. The only thing lacking was the topping on the pizza didn't seem to be extremely fresh.

“Disapointed”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 9, 2012

We were referred to this establishment by our limo driver during a wine trip. We were very excited to see how busy they were (means great food--right?). Gave our name at 6:30...sat at bar for one and one-half hours(OK they were busy) our "buzzer went off and want to hostess. We were told it was an accident and that we would have the next table. Next two tables came and went. Talked to owner(did not do any thing) We were seated at 9:00(2 and one-half hours later!) Food was OK---not great. There was no-where else close we could have went. Disapointed in owners lack of action and food.

“Great food, seating problems”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 7, 2012

We had a fantastic dinner, the place looks big but once you get in it its very small. The hostess had major problems trying to deal with a busy crowd, waiting time was over 1 hr.. Food portions were huge and the price is right.. Huge menu from Pizza to a Seafood Trio which I had & was fantastic.. Def recommend

“Very good, some wait time”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 2, 2012

Went there on a Sunday afternoon.
We had to wait for 20 minutes before the waiter takes our order and another 20 minutes to get it

Other than that, the food (we took pizza and pasta) was very good and tasty
The price of the meal was more than reasonable for the quantity and quality we get/
For less than 20 bucks, you can get a really good pizza that could feed 2 adults and 2 kids.

Definitely a good restaurant if you're not in a rush
