The food was great as was the atmosphere, looking out at the garden, the woods and the Lake! It's closed in the winter, but in the summer it's fantastic. It's a few miles on New York State Route 414 north of Watkins Glen! Vegetables largely...More

Our innkeepers recommended Stonecat and we were not disappointed. Great menu, lot of energy including live entertainment and service and food were terrific. Right on the lake with a lovely garden in back.

Great setting on lake front, but off tha mark cusine. Rustic style dining room needs refinement, with overpriced local wine. Blended seasoning of fish entree; spotty service. Great potential for needed refinement.

Stonecat is amazing!!! It is a must visit for brunch, lunch or dinner for local deliciousness. Jazz brunch on Sundays with a smoked Bloody Mary is always fantastic. I strongly recommend saving room for desert as the homemade desserts are always divine. Great experience all...More

At the Stonecat, it is our belief that food is life. We feel that what people eat is the biggest mark of their culture and a reflection of how they feel about life. We like life in Hector and enjoy waking people up to vibrant, fun food that is grown organically and sustainably. We celebrate the bounty of the Finger Lakes region and focus on regional, sustainable food purveyors and local wine, beer, and craft cocktails. Reservations are highly recommended.
