I’ve only been to Watkins Glen twice but both times my friend and I stopped here. Most recently it was for lunch and the big reason was Rooster Fish beer. Although beer was the main attraction we really enjoyed the chili we had.

A local gem that delighted this out-of-towner and is clearly a hot spot for locals. This brew pub features a nice menu, wonderfully friendly and attentive staff and a gorgeously restored interior that whispers of a different era. Everything's well done with lots of attention to detail from the enormous bar to the painted tin roof, oak moldings and an impressive brass brew system on display in the restaurant. Recommend the potato soup and pulled pork sandwich - and definitely spring for the "haystack" fries.

My wife and I stopped here when we arrived into town after a 4 hour drive. The staff was very friendly and the food and drinks were excellent. They have a great variety of local wine and craft beer. The roasted brussel sprouts are a must!

We arrived about 1 on a Monday, and it was not busy. We were a group of 8 people, and there was quite a lengthy discussion about whether or not we would be able to sit together, or separate off into 2 groups of 4. Not sure why the big discussion-but 2 tables were finally put together for our group.
We ordered the lobster roll and the bacon cheddar burger. Both were really delicious! Burger was not exactly hot...but tasted good. Another member of our table also ordered the lobster roll. It was delivered on a larger roll with a lot more lobster filling. Strange, since on the menu there is only 1 price it would seem logical to give the same size to 2 people sitting at the same table. Pickles were quite the discussion...as some sandwiches had them, and others didn't. Again...same table. The food was really slow to come out of the kitchen, which might account for the less than hot burger.
The server was friendly, and tried to work well with our group. It just seemed like the restaurant was not quite up to dealing with a group of 8 on a Monday.
I would return to this restaurant with just 2 people and I think we would have a totally different experience. The place is cute and the food was very good. There is a reason it is ranked #1 in Watkins Glen...but on this particular day, with our particular group of 8 it wasn't a 5 star dining experience. Maybe next visit.
