Description: Jerlando's Ristorante & Pizza Co. Is located in the center of downtown Watkins Glen at the corner of 4th and Franklin St.. 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. After Labor our hours are 11am - 9pm. We are open year round.

“OK, Great for Downtown Watkins Glen”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 14, 2013

You like "white" flour pizza with little originality this will fit the bill. Ordinary salads, nice setting, and ho hum sauces. But hey if you are in Schuyler County there just ain't much going on. It is neat and clean but all I can say is, this not my favorite pizza in this area.

Personally right down the road is an honest to goodness wood burning pizza oven at the Blue Ribbon Diner. Believe it or not locals will swear, It is not pretty but serves up much better pizza with creative toppings.

So your choice, pretty and plain or ugly and creative.

“Nice room, generous amount of food and friendly service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 23, 2013

On a weekend get away we relied on tripadvisor as usual for recommendations. Staying just a few blocks away and in the mood for a heary meal, we came to this restaurant. After a modest wait, we were seated. They make great use of the space they have with clever decor. The staff is friendly and helpful. Our meal choices were just what we wanted (if you like Puttanesca, try it here) with plenty to bring back to our hotel for late night snacking and lunch the next day. All at a reasonable price. Find this place if you're in the area.

“Great Italian Food with some local wines”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 18, 2013

We ate there on a Saturday and there was a line. We waited at the bar and ordered a couple drinks and appetizers (you can eat a full meal there if you like). Drink your local NYS wines here because they are on the menu! I had the Haddock Siciliano and it was cooked perfectly. Atmosphere was nice with high ceilings and a "park-like atmosphere". We'd go back again.

“CBR Pizza??”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 31, 2013

Jerlando's is located on the main drag in Watkins Glen, and is well worth your attention. A pizzeria/restaurant they offer sandwiches, entrees, soups, apps and of course, pizza. The CBR (chicken, bacon, ranch) pizza may sound odd, but I guarantee you will LOVE this pizza. We did.
