Arrived at the brewpub for a late lunch/early dinner during the week. Very few others were in the building...save for a number of servers and bartenders. This is located on a tiny main street, very quaint and captures that small town feel perfectly.

You enter into the main bar area...we sat in a booth in the next room, behind the bar room. The booths remind me of large church pews...highly polished dark wood...which fit in perfectly with the modern "irish pub" feel.

The menu is decent with a few unique items. The beer menu is right in line with that of any brewpub. Our waitress was friendly and offered her opinions when asked.

Very happy to have picked out this place as one of our stops while driving through NY. Good food and beer and in an awesome setting.

Nice location in the heart of Watkins Glen. Hang out inside or in the open air entry ways that look out at tourist, classic autos and motorcycles cruising through town.

The new tasting room is going to be gorgeous! Saw the blueprints and it is going to bring a top notch beer garden to watkins!

Quaint interior with a down to earth, pub ambiance. Staff and service are OK, but vary widely. They won't fill a half growler?! Beers are really good overall and they've got a good selection to choose from (10-12, I think). The food sounds better than it tastes, but to be fair it sounds really awesome. Pub food with personality and a focus on fresh, local ingredients. Beer menu is well made and they have a handy tasting sheet so you can easily tell them what you want and always know which is which. Nice place, overall.

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.
