Great restaurant to meet up with family and friends in a comfy environment. The cocktails are wonderful and the food is down home type, no large menu with hundreds of items.

Went for dinner on a weekend and the place was jumping. Our server couldn't have been friendlier or more helpful. We started with the cheese and broccoli bites, which were just OK. I had the broiled fish, which was very peppery but otherwise flavorless. One of my party had the chicken parm; portion was large and looked OK. Other diner... More

The Decoy was recommended by our guide. It was convenient to our hotel and the food and service was excellent.

Nice little homestyle diner in a remolded house. Good selection, great value and good food. We were looking for a casual place after a day of wine tasting and we found it. So happy we decided to take a chance.

Food was awesome. Had a table of 8 and we all had different dinners. Not one complaint. salads, vegetables , and rolls came with the meals. It wasn't really noisy so we could converse easily with each other.

We enjoyed our dinner tonight at the Decoy, which was only 1/4 mile from our hotel, the Golden Knight. After a long day of winery tastings, we just didn't feel like venturing into Watkins Glen, and we were pleasantly surprised by this cozy restaurant. The two pasta dishes we chose were very good, and the salad bar was very fresh... More

The Decoy was recommended to us by a local B&B. Their website photos are a little deceiving. The first thoughts upon walking in are that this place needs a major re-haul. The decor is dated and it's a really odd setup. For example, their "salad bar" is a small table near the center of the room with one large stainless... More

We have only gone on Friday night for the fish. They have other things on the menu but I love their broiled fish and I love the salad bar with the cabbage salad
