Stopped in mid-afternoon, sat at the bar. Though several staff were in the vicinity, took WAY too long to be served. After quaffing a very forgettable brown ale, we were presented with our check, instead of a menu. Several of the young ladies working there were friendly, but the young gentleman tending bar was rather detached. Catfish taco was a gloppy mess, and the chicken wings were below average... even though they were ordered ’hot’, they were tepid at best. Got the feeling that the kids were running the joint unsupervised. Meh.

This was an excellent lunch stop. There’s a brewery tap room and bar which opens at 1600 plus a "café" which is really more like a rather nice pub. We had a sampler of Roosterfish beers and a very good lunch (soup and a sandwich for me and a toasted cheese sandwich with a pasta side for Chris - well, it might have been the other way round but I didn’t take detailed notes as we got chatting to Nick, a very nice and interesting chap from Albany). Recommended - if you’re in the area, it’s well worth a visit.

Beer is excellent, growler fill prices are modest, and their selection of food is outstanding. Food prices can be expensive if you’re not careful with plenty of upgrading options but this is surely a place to try at least once, but if you do you’ll surely return!

October 2011. This place gets bumped up to a 10 on value, because it is hard to find a good beer place in the middle of wine country! Ordered samplers and dinner, the waitress was memorably friendly (a bit flirty with the men, but she actually admitted she had been drinking earlier in the day, haha). Service was prompt, beers were tasty and they had on some atypical beers, like one made with agave. A few guest taps on as well. Will stop in for beer next time I’m in wine country!

We stopped in here on 8/2/2011 while on vacation.
Small dimly lit restaurant on the left side and a dimly lit bar on the right side. This place takes up two store fronts that are connected in the front with a small passageway by the front windows. We ate an early dinner in the restaurant half. Service was a little confused, but once things got rolling we were taken care of. The staff even prepared a cake for my daughter who turned 7 that day. The food was good, a step above pub food, but it was a bit pricy. The beer I had I really enjoyed. If I were ever in Watkins Glen again I would definitely stop by again.

A great cafe in a great town. Looks like more of wine country, but incredibly scenic. A perfect motorcycle ride.

Nice place on the strip in Watkins Glen. Draft was decent, couple of guest taps (Ithaca Cascazilla for one). Food was prety good, chorizo quessadilla, avoid the wings. Good stop

While visiting my brother on 10-10-09 we visited the brew pub. Overall it was a good experience, and the food was great. Unfortunately I did not get to sample any of their beers. Some of the staff seemed overwhelmed, specifically my waitress and the bartender. This caused for an extremely long wait on our food. This did not seem to be our servers fault, she had more tables than the waiter who was working alongside of her. One of which was a party of eleven. We ordered 6 samples to try and we canceled them after finishing our meals, due to still not receiving them. Again the bar was packed so you can’t really blame the bartender. I didn’t see any one who seemed to be management to support the staff at such an obviously busy time of day. I will say our server even while she was running around was very pleasant. I emailed them about this the day after and still have not received a reply.
