Enjoyed the rotisserie chicken and sides. A local recommended it to us after hiking the gorge. Filled up my family of four and had some yummy desserts.

I had the 1/4 chicken and biscuit with gravy, which was an ample portion of food. The chicken was moist and plentiful; the biscuit was good, mashed potatoes were fine too. The gravy was decent, and overall a nice meal. Good value for the money.

Went here for lunch after hiking. Convenient location across from Watkins Glen Park. The Philly cheese steak was good but over priced for the very small portion that you get. The chicken tenders were good as well as the sauces, but again, very over priced...More
