Dinner was decent and they had a great selection but nothing stood out as different. We didn't have to wait long to be seated.

We found the Wildflower Cafe looking for food after a race, one of the few places with good reviews in this area. We were not disappointed, service was excellent as was the food. Short trip down the street to the brewery was great too.

We stopped in here as a large group between hikes at Watkins Glen. It's very dark inside and the bathroom situation isn't great. The sandwiches were alright, but the fish tacos were 90% cole slaw, very little fish, and what there was was mostly breading...More

Yes! I got a whole rundown from the wait staff on what was able to be customized. They can certainly accommodate you. The vegan tacos I got could certainly be made with veggie filling instead of the gluteny seitan.
