We saw this joint on our 1st drive through Watkins Glen and were pleasantly surprised when we accidently found it again the 2nd day. It was a great place to have a good but inexpensive and casual lunch after hiking Watkins Glen St Park. Fried...More

This very unassuming Chicken restaurant a block south of the State park entrance has superb chicken with gravy. No dieters allowed though!
