A nice place to get away from all of the wineries up in the Finger Lakes. This place has 2 sides, the pub area and the Wildflower cafe. You can enter from either side. Not a huge place, but there are quite a few tables and booths.
Ordered the beer sampler. A nice 2 tiered holder was brought over. 9 or 10 beers all together. The typicals, a blond, pale ale, IPA, amber...the dunkel was really tasty. I ordered a second. Their Belgian golden ale seasonal was also a nice, spicey treat. The brown ale was dark and toasty, more reminscient of a stout than your typical browns.
The menu was decent. A few unique items. I ordered the corn and pepper cakes. Like a crabcake minus the crab. Really good.
If in the Watkins Glen area, this is your best beer option. Also, it is one of your only real decent food options.

Stopped in for dinner while on a Finger Lakes brewery tour. An outstanding selection of beers. There was inside and outside seating. very cool garage doors to the outside. Food was awesome. If you like BBQ stop in. Lots of beer selections, something for all tastes. They had a band starting just as dinner finished, wished we could have stayed longer.

Stopped in here for lunch on my birthday trip to Ithaca.
The beer selection was alright. Nothing crazy on tap, but all of their usual suspects. Rooster Fish beer runs from average to bland to me most of the time. Drinkable, but I wouldn't seek it out. Hop Warrior and Cocoa Porter were the best I tried.
The food was better. They claimed to use all local ingredients, and it made for a very tasty experience. Salad and burger was great.
The service was satisfactory. Refilled sodas and waters at a good pace. The atmosphere was alright as well, the place was a little too dark at times.
