We had our server David and he was pleasant, considerate and attentive. I've been here many times and for dinner we love being served by Meghan, Andy, Frank and Tara! I also have nothing but amazing things to say about Krista, Sam and Jackie in the bar!!! I am glad to call this place a regular spot for myself and... More

I stayed a few weeks ago for a race that was at Watkins Glen. The location of this for the track is really the best of all worlds. Close to town and yet close to the track while being in the middle of the wilderness. The property as a whole has clearly grown over time and added buildings here and... More

This is a large restaurant with an interesting bar that has arrows stuck into the walls. Make sure you check out the bar. The blue cheese dressing was so thick I think you could walk on it and not sink. Food was good. We live outside NYC. I would recommend this restaurant as good local experience.

Wonderfully tender prime rib. The salad bar was very fresh and was refilled regularly. I had a wonderful soup the night I was there. I thought it was a good value. There was a 45 minute wait to get seated the Saturday night I was there. We enjoyed ourselves while we were waiting at the Tavern Room bar.

Stopped in to check out the menu for dinner but ended up having a beer in the very unique bar. This is obviously a locals hang out but they welcomed us with open arms. Several local craft beers on tap which was a little surprising considering it is really a hangout for the local bow hunters. Behind the bar are... More

Initially booked a Saturday night stay and added a second night. Rooms are clean and unpretentious. We had dinner both nights in the lodge, food was good and there was plenty. My husband had the meatloaf special on Sunday, and it was more than he could eat. i had the grilled chicken, which came with two breasts. The salad bar... More

Cute place. The property has accommodations, a bar, and a restaurant. We went for dinner. Everyone enjoyed their meal. Reasonable prices. Great service. Most meals come with this little salad bar that was very good and fresh. The blue cheese is insane, thick and chunky. Originally thought it was cottage cheese.

If you are a race fan or hunter, you will enjoy the fantastic collection of history on the walls! Rest there is a bar and restaurant, but the history of this lodge restaurant is the star attraction!

My husband and I enjoyed breakfast here while we were in the Watkins Glen area and enjoyed it. The restaurant is in a log cabin and had a nice rustic feel to it. The pancakes I had were wonderful and I left feeling quite full. Service was prompt and attentive. Will definitely return.

The menu has changed very little over the years, from the orange duck, to the pork chops, to the fried chicken accompanied by an always fresh salad bar. There is also a knightly special. My first visit was 30 years ago and I can honestly say I've never had a bad meal. the is a unique bar off the dining... More
