About 16 Pittsburgh Pirate fans and 4 Cub fans were there to watch the play offs. The music was way too loud for a "sports bar." None of us could hear the broadcast. My husband had a difficult time getting the remote to put the three tvs on closed caption so we could follow the game. They finally reluctantly gave... More

We are sorry to hear that you had a bad experience. In an attempt to accommodate all of our guest we do not typically turn the volume up on the TV's so that those watching different games are able to enjoy them as well. Bleachers Sports Bar and Grill is a family owned and operated bar and restaurant. We hope... More

Stopped in after a day on the road and some hiking; Kind enough to turn on the Cubs vs Cards playoff game. Waitress was pleasant and responsive all evening. The food was typical bar food - moderately priced and good for dinner; nothing to rave about. Looking for a low key, mid range place this is a good stop.

Called to see if they were carrying the Panthers game. When we got there, they had it on 1 of their 7 tvs. We were able to watch our game and also cheer with the Buffalo fans. Just wish they could have beat Patriots. Bartender was very nice- making sure everything was good with us. We started out with peel... More

We were in from out of town and wanted to catch a game on TV. Was a little apprehensive when we first walked in, but was glad we stayed. The wings are excellent, well priced, and the blue cheese they serve is fantastic.

This bar and grill has great food as well as atmosphere in the small town of Watkins Glen! Food options range from dinners to sandwiches as well as snack foods, all while watching your favorite sports broadcast! And the beers on tap are varied - they recently added Guinness onto their draft beer menu, which was right up my alley!

Sandwiches and burgers are very good. Chili was very tasty. We all left very filled and satisfied. I had a cheesesteak it was delicious! My friend had a BLT it was a very filled sandwich. Will definitely be back!

The waitress lost our order so we were there longer than we wanted but when the food finally did arrive it was hot and tasty. The fries were crispy and we'll seasoned. Solid job on a burger.

Two thumbs up for the wings and bleu cheese here. Can't get anymore NY than this place. Typical salad and sandwich fare for pub food, which we were happy with. But, the wings is what we really came for.
