The weather wasn't great but that didn't dampen our spirits. Nice, casual restaurant for even larger groups. We had a delicious family lunch and beautiful view.

Glenwood is on Route 89 heading north from downtown Ithaca toward Taughannock Falls State Park. It is worth seeking out. The menu is basic, soups, salads, and sandwiches for lunch, somewhat more fancy for dinner. I have eaten there many times with family, with friends,...More

Known as the "Pines" this place is on the west side of Lake Cayuga with a great waterfront view. Large bar with separate room for diners decorated in, you guessed it, pine motif. Burgers are the feature here, though other dishes are available. The famed...More

We used to go to the Pines 3-4 times a year and really enjoyed it. After not going for a while, we went last week and fond it changed. The cozy atmosphere and view are still great. The food is not as good and niether...More
