We stopped on on a Thursday around 7, and there was no wait to get a table. We ordered flights to taste the beers. I liked the Nut Brown Ale's aroma best, but liked the flavor of the Cocoa Porter best. We shared a yummy Crab & Gouda dip, which came with fresh crispy chips. Our server, Michelle, was helpful...

We had such an awesome meal here. The food was fresh and delicious. I had the spinach and prosciutto pizza and my husband had the seafood sandwich. Both were amazing! A great spot in Watkins Glen!

Big selection of their own brewed beers. Excellent gourmet burgers with creative side dishes. Good atmosphere with occasional bands playing.

We ate here on a Wednesday night after arriving at Watkins Glen. It was a little confusing at first as to which restaurant we were going into as the Wildflower Café and The Crooked Rooster connect to each other. We ate in The Wildflower Café side. Since it was a summer night it was open air. (We did get a... More

My family recently ate here for lunch as we visited the area. We heard good things from a friend. We were greeted promptly and the hostess was very friendly. We were seated next to a very large and loud table which was kind of annoying but they quieted down after a little while. The beers were pretty good. There wasn't... More

Couldn't ask for more from a restaurant. We stopped for lunch after walking the gorge. I got the chicken wrap and my wife got the black bean burger. Sweet potato fries on the side. Everything was great. Our server was especially attentive and friendly. Would come here again.

We had a larger party of people (~12) and they were very accommodating. Food was good, quick service, and so many beers i couldn't choose! I went the sampler route!!! The waiter even gave us some tips for wineries and restaurants for the next day.

We ate there on a Sunday evening. We ordered two different mussel dishes. Both were as advertised and delicious. The craft beer and ale was also very good.

It's hard to tell if you're going to the Wildflower Cafe or the Crooked Rooster. Two different signs over two different doors that both lead to the same place. Doesn't matter though, either way you cant go wrong. The food is good and there's a selection of Rooster Fish beers. Tasty.
