Quirky bar with excellent bartenders. Craft beer is delicious and made on site. Restaurant has a delicious salad bar for starters and all of the dinners were tasty and portions were large. Staff are professional and friendly. Perfect place to have breakfast or dinner.

Our cousin, a local, took my sister and me to dinner at this charming place on the outskirts of Watkins Glen. The dining room has a rough hewn look with a stone fireplace. We had drinks at the well-stocked bar while waiting for the rest...More

It was Sunday evening and family showed up. We decided Seneca Lodge for it had been decades since they were there (SC, MI fam). They were not disappointed. Wetting our whistles in the famous racing winner’s bar, we had their home brews. The blonde and...More
