A wonderful place to have a relaxing dinner after your day of touring the wine country and Watkins Glen falls. A rustic camp like setting is very casual but presents a wonderful menu of well done foods. Enjoy!

First they don't take reservations or even call ahead seating. The wait staff was semi rude. The appetizer we ordered was had been frozen and came out runny and full of water. The salad bar was limited but what was there was very fresh. The Tenderloin filet made up for the other marginal areas of the experience. THEY WERE MELT IN YOUR MOUTH GREAT!!!!! Saying that we would stll return to this restaurant.

This was our third time joining a large group celebration here; this year we had 15 people. I thought it was unusual that they would not take reservations even for a large group.They told us to be there early if we wanted a large table. So we arrived before 5:30; they then set us up at one table, and it was fine. The last two years they were willing to do separate checks by couple, but wouldn't do it this year. However, our one server was pleasant and efficient without seeming rushed. It's nice to have a salad bar to start without any waiting, and the corn muffins on it were heavenly. My husband and I enjoyed the fish fry special with haddock and very good cole slaw. Everyone else seemed to enjoy their meals also. The restaurant was full on a Friday night but they seemed to be well equipped to cook and serve large numbers. A very pleasant evening.

We have only been to the bar. It's a must stop if you are racing fan, which we are. The local brew on tap is nice. Next year we will have to try out the restaurant.

I was just at the Bar at Seneca Lodge last weekend, following the Indy Car race.
Never seems to change. Great stop for a post race beer! The general fame comes from the heavy, red, cuts of beef the Lodge serves. If you're into beef, this is your place. Can bit a bit noisy at times.
