The gentleman who greeted us at the door was so hospitable. We were just wanting to sit at the bar, and he made us feel so welcome. My husband had a flight of beers, while I had a cranberry mule. So yummy!

Food and service were very good. The keyboardist who was playing when were dined on Saturday of last week was amazing. Although I did not recognize any of the tunes he was playing, they were in the style of the Great American Songbook.

If you're near Hammondsport, make the time to visit. Great gift shops and this tavern is well worth your time. Excellent choice of beers. And much more than your average tavern food. It's a place filled with people having fun with food

Hometown vibe from a excellent dining experience. The staff was friendly and even the owners took time to ask how we were enjoying our meal. Definitely worth the visit.
