The food was similar to that of an average diner. The service was good. We were the only ones in the restaurant (party of 12). The atmosphere, although clean, was unremarkable otherwise. I had a chopped sirloin with fries, onion rings and salad. The prices were good and equivalent to diners in the area. I was sad they did not... More

Try the liver and onion dish. My wife's favorite. I normally have their blue plate special. Continuous coffee refill. They are known for their breakfast which is really good.

We've driven by this place many times on Route 96, on our way to Taughannock Falls, Ithaca, etc. It's south of the village, near the fairgrounds. It's been in business for many years which always seems like a recommendation. It's a rustic-looking place, like something you see in the Adirondacks, with old barn beams, some antique wood planes, etc. on... More

This is the local spot in Trumansburg and the haddock we had was fine, though over seasoned. The dining rooms' settings were a little primitive and to give an idea, I had to ask for a glass for the ordered bottle of pale ale. The service was average. It might be worth the trip back to Ithaca for dining where... More

If you are looking for a nice family restaurant off the beaten pass not far from Ithaca, this is a good one. Good selection of foods from breakfast to dinner. Reasonable for a family.

We went there for lunch. I ordered the chicken salad special sandwich, wife ordered Philly cheese steak sandwich. My sandwich came on very small white bread with few potato chips, no lettuce, no tomato, very little filling. Wife's sandwich was old beef with very stringy onions, did not even eat half. The waitress seemed embarrassed with the presentation and quality.... More

We were looking for lunch place while leaving Toughannock State Park. The Falls was listed as nearby so we decided to give it a try. Great home-style food at excellent prices. We ate here for lunch one day and for breakfast the next morning. Both meals were yummy. Service was great. We have put it on our return to Lake... More

The first time we stopped here we sat down and waited 10 minutes and no one came over to greet us or take an order so we left. We gave them another chance and this time we were greeted right away and the waitress was very efficient. The food was great and the prices reasonable. We ate there twice while... More

I had lunch there on a very busy day the morning after a festival. I joined a table of about 10 people several minutes after they had already ordered and went over to the counter to catch the waitress, who was up to her eyeballs in customers. . She greeted me very pleasantly and took my order. It arrived only... More
