Disappointed
Jun 2021 • Friends
This place was on my radar for having a good variety of local beer. Sadly it did not live up to expectations. The bar had very few people there. There was no ac and was hot and gross. The beer was amazing and mostly cold and good variety of local stuff. You could see the kitchen though and they were eating off peoples plates so we didn’t order a meal we left. So nasty and honestly disrespectful.

Not sure what was worse the food or service. Took the bartender forever to even acknowledge us. Beer was horrible, even a server sampled it in front of us and said it was gross. Pulled pork sand was cold. Had to ask bartender to check on our food. We could see it sitting in the window. Then tells us it just came up as we watched her get it. Dont be fooled by the hip name or the charm of the building.

Ok. To pricey for what we had
Sep 2020 • Family
Family of 4. Only a few patrons inside but took a bit for the waitress to get to us. My meal, the cod sandwich was blah. The bun was good. Their balsamic vinaigrette dressing is very good. Kid 1 had chicken fingers, simple, tasty. Kid 2 had the beyond burger(vegan) meal, said it was delicious. Spouse had a burger and was cooked to order and said was tasty. Asked for a to go box never came, asked again and waitress said you need another one? Uhh, no you never gave us one .. for not being busy they weren't very efficient.. wouldn't eat here again, but it was ok for the moment

TERRIBLE
Aug 2020
Unfortunately, this place needs its act together. We were not the only ones sitting there with no food for OVER 2 hours. It took that much time to get our apps then dinner came out much later. Our waitress Miranda was awesome! She kept coming back to apologize for the wait. We finally got the manager and she also apologized & would get our order out as soon as possible. Unfortunately, it was too little too late. Some said they were accommodating their to-go orders and leaving us sitting in behind.

They did cover our drinks but would not recommend eating there, their food was not so good. Very thrown together dinner with very little taste and burnt cauliflower wings. Prob because of whatever problem they were having that night, heard the bartender had to help in the kitchen. No excuse for a beautiful summer Saturday night crowd.

Sorry, but you already knew what a terrible night of dinner you gave us ALL. Hopefully this will never happen again.

Great place for a craft beer after hiking the gorge
Oct 2018 • Family
The Rooster Fish is 5 minutes from the gorge and makes a fine spot for a burger and beer after the hike. There is a parking lot across the street that seems to be reasonably accessible. Their home brew was delicious particularly the Porter. The burgers were big, juicy and cooked to order. All four members of our party were delighted by the quality of the food and beer. Next time we hike the gorge, we will return to Rooster Fish for lunch

Solid Good Beer
Jul 2018 • Couples
In the area I live in we have a Brewery Rapscallion that is very much like this one. Quality beers I had a flight. Best of the three in area we went to good but not great. Treehouse, Greater Good and Wachusett would rate higher but a solid brewery worth the trip.

Worth the stop!
Jul 2018 • Couples
My wife and I stopped by the tasting room and I had a flight. Overall, the beer was good. They had several unique beers that were well done. Their Sriracha ale was very good. I'm not normally a fan of Jalapeno beers which are often not balanced very well. This was, and despite the heat, it was refreshing and not so intense as to make it difficult to like. They don't have a restaurant at the tasting room, but they have a pub within 100 yds which does, and the food was very good and they even had a couple good vegetarian options which I appreciated very much. If you're in Watkins Glen and you like beer, this is a great place to stop.

Fun tasting area!
Jun 2018 • Friends
No food here. Just popcorn, but they do have two restaurants just a block away that serve food with the rooster fish beer. Some fun games tables and free tastings! Nice to come and chill for awhile.

Stopped to try a flight. Four tastings for $8. Nice variety of brews. Liked all the ones we tried. Ended up staying to have a glass of their Tripel, and talking with the bartender. Had a great time. Will return on our next trip to the lake.
